“I was nervous (Thursday) because I hit such a good score on my first round,” he said. “My priority is to keep my score low, but I don’t want to rush it, and will try and play safe where I can.

“My tee shots were brilliant, as well as most of my putts. The greens were in great condition for it.”

Kim could have had an even stronger grip on proceedings, but for a double bogey on the 18th.

He said: “I was very upset after that, but it was better than a triple bogey. I’ve had lots of psychological training at my academy in Korea, which helps in those situations.

“(Friday) is a new day and a new challenge and one that I am looking forward to. I’m proud and privileged to be in the position I’m in and feel positive heading into the final round.”
