Kang not worried about pressure

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- After a dinner of Cheetos Friday night, Sunghoon Kang feasted on Korean food for breakfast prior to the third round of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic.

"And I really felt good in the morning," the 24-year-old said.

Kang certainly played like he did, too. He started on the back nine of the Magnolia Course and made birdie on five of his first six holes on the way to a 67 that left him in a tie for 10th.

The solid performance couldn't come at a better time for the South Korean, either. He started the week ranked 141st on the PGA TOUR money list and has improved two spots.

Of course, Kang needs a stellar Sunday to avoid a third trip to q-school. But he's actually treating the week like the dreaded final stage.

"I'm in the right spot right now," he said. "I think this is less pressure than q-school. So I hope I play a little better than today for tomorrow. Hopefully I'll have a spot for next year."
