‘The Power of Long Hitting Experience’ Park Sang-hyun, Lim Seong-jae tied for second place in front of Jeong Chan-min

 Around 12:50 pm on the 11th. The tee box of hole 1 was crowded with galleries.

On the first day of the KPGA Tour 2023 Woori Finance Championship, Seong-jae Lim, who is active on the PGA Tour, participated in the group. This is because last week’s winner, long hitter Jeong Chan-min, and veteran Park Sang-hyun, who represents Korean men’s golf, were placed in the same group. Of course, Seongjae Lim was the one who drew the most attention from the gallery.

However, the result of the first round was that the eldest brother (?) Park Sang-hyun gave some guidance.

In the first round of the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour Woori Finance Championship (total prize money of 1.5 billion won) held at the Ferrum Club (par 72) in Yeoju-si, Gyeonggi-do on the 11th, Park Sang-hyun must have felt the burden from the noise of the gallery from the 1st hole and the long hit of Chan-min Jung and Seong-jae Lim. However, he continued to play his own sophisticated golf. In the end, Park Sang-hyun finished the game in a tie for second place with 4 under par with 5 birdies and 1 bogey, one stroke behind leader Han Seung-soo.

On the other hand, Lim Seong-jae and Jung Chan-min hit a 1-under par 71 after committing a double bogey with a tee shot OB side by side.

When it comes to tee shots, Park Sang-hyun was 20 to 30 yards shorter than Lim Seong-jae and Jeong Chan-min, but he didn’t mind at all and hit the pin freely with his irons and wedges, his skills. Especially in the second half of the 11th to 13th holes, 3 consecutive birdies caught the mood.메이저사이트

After the game, Park Sang-hyun laughed, saying, “I played so many rounds with players who were far ahead of me in distance,” and “I was the worst in distance today, but the score came out the best.”

Lim Seong-jae, who played the game for the first time in six years after playing with Park Sang-hyun in Japan in 2017, admired, saying, “Iron shots, short games, and putting are still the same then and now.” Jeong Chan-min also said, “We had very few opportunities to play together, but after playing together, I can see why they are called seasoned.”

Im Seong-jae was cruising at 3-under, but it was painful to commit a double bogey as his tee shot on the 9th hole (par 5) wound to the left and was lost. He also committed a bogey on the 10th hole.

A ball that deviated too far from the fairway and flew to the left became a lost ball, and Lim Seong-jae, who wrote down a double bogey, lost a stroke in the 10th hole (par 4) as well. It was fortunate for the second round that the game was under par on the last 18th hole.

Han Seung-soo took the lead with 6 birdies and 1 bogey, while amateur national team members Jang Yu-bin, Kang Gyeong-nam and Choi Jin-ho tied for second place with a 4 under par 68 with Park Sang-hyun. Defending champion Jang Hee-min hit a 3-under-par 69 to tie for 8th place.

Meanwhile, Seo Yo-seop recorded a hole-in-one on the 16th hole (par 3, 186 yards) and enjoyed the good fortune of receiving a car as an injury. Seo Yo-seop’s tee shot with a 7-iron landed in front of the pin and rolled straight into the hole cup. Seo Yo-seop received an 80 million won BMW i4 electric car as a prize.
