Having finished the first round in top 10, Kim fired an amazing five-under-par 65 during the second day and reigned on top of the leaderboard before the two final days of Singha Laguna Phuket Open 2019.

"I am striking my irons well and all my birdies were inside 10 feet. I still feel good about how I played but obviously there is a lot of golf left to play so my position right now doesn't matter that much," Bangkok Post quotes Kim as saying (read here).

Overnight leader Nattawat Suvajanakorn of Thailand who recorded a stunning eight-under-par 62 on day one came only fifth.

Day 2 leaderboard:

1. Joohyung KIM (-10);
2. Chinnarat PHADUNGSIL (-8);
3. Sadom KAEWKANJANA (-8);
4. Danny MASRIN (-8);
5. Nattawat SUVAJANAKORN (-7);
