March 18, 2017: Korea’s Jeunghun Wang fired a four-under-par 68 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Friday to move into tied eighth place.

The Asian Tour star shot one eagle, five birdies and three bogeys at Bay Hill for a five-under-par 139 total to trail halfway leader Charley Hoffman by five shots going into the weekend rounds.

Wang, who will compete in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in Austin next week, is making his debut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, which is being staged this week for the first time following the death of the golf legend last September.

India’s Anirban Lahiri, tied fifth at last week’s Hero Indian Open, missed the halfway cut after rounds of 79 and 72. It effectively ends his hopes of qualifying for a third straight Masters Tournament appearance as he has said this would be his last tournament before the qualifying cut off for the year’s first Major.
