Scottie Scheffler of the U.S., the world’s No. 1 player in men’s golf, missed a 50cm putt, ending his recent 28 consecutive rounds of under par.

Scheffler played in the second round on the second day of the PGA Tour’s Texas Children’s Houston Open (total prize money of 9.1 million U.S. dollars) held at Memorial Park Country Club (par 70, 7,435 yards) in Houston, Texas on the 30th (Korea time). He shot even par 70 with five birdies, three bogeys and one double bogey.

Scheffler, who shot an interim total of five under par 135, tied for fourth.

Scheffler will try to win the tournament for the third consecutive week after winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the Players Championship in succession over the past two weeks.

He is four shots behind Tony Finau of the U.S., who is in first place until the second round, with a 9-under 131.

Finau is the ‘defending champion’ who won the competition in 2022. The competition was not held last year.

Scheffler recorded a double bogey on the 18th hole (par 4), the last hole of the day, as both the 1.6m par putt and the 50cm bogey putt went around the hole.

Even if he made a bogey at this hole, he could have stayed under par for 29 consecutive rounds, but he lost two strokes at the last hole and stayed at even par.

Under par for 28 consecutive rounds is the most on the PGA Tour since the record was first set in 1983.

Alejandro Tosti of Argentina finished second, two strokes behind Finau.

Kim Si-woo tied for 28th with a 1-under 139, and Lee Kyung-hoon and Kim Sung-hyun tied for 45th with an even-par 140 to finish the second round.

South Korean player Kim Chan (U.S.) recorded his first hole-in-one on the PGA Tour with a pitching wedge on the par-3 ninth hole at 157 yards.

Kim Chan tied for 20th with a 2-under 138.
