It’s a pity Park Sang-hyun’s first European tour failed

Park Sang-hyun (40) unfortunately missed out on winning the Korea Championship (total prize money of 2 million dollars) jointly organized by the Korea Professional Golf Association (KPGA) Korean Tour and the European DP World Tour. The first champion was Pablo Larazabal (40, Spain), who ranked 101st in the world.

Park Sang-hyun, a veteran of 11 wins on the Korean Tour, scored a 2 under par 70 with 1 eagle, 3 birdies and 3 bogies in the final round of the tournament held at Incheon Jack Nicklaus CC (par 72, 7470 yards) on the 30th, for a total of 9 under par 279 strokes. Record, tied for third place, three strokes behind winner Pablo Larazabal (12 under par, 276 strokes, Spain). He was tied for second place until the third round, aiming for his first European Tour championship in 10 years, but failed to overcome his rivals at the climax.크크크벳

Park Sang-hyun, who started the final round in a tie for second place, one stroke behind leader Robert McIntyre (Scotland), recorded a total of 7 under par 199 as a result of completing the remaining 4 holes of the 3rd round due to rain the day before. In the first hole (par 4), he connected a chip shot near the green bunker with an eagle and expressed his hopes for a come-from-behind victory. Park Sang-hyun, who cut 2 strokes at once and took the lead with 10 under par in the middle, caught up with Lara Sabal by 1 shot. After failing to put a birdie putt of about 3m in the 15th hole (par 5), where he must reduce the number of strokes, he made a 17th hole (par 3). Because of the bogeying, he got away from the championship competition.

Park Sang-hyun tied for 3rd at the 2011 European Professional Golf Tour Ballantine’s Championship held in Korea, and tied with his best performance on the European Tour.

Lara Sabal, who started in a tie for second place with Park Sang-hyun, succeeded in reversing while the lead McIntyre was faltering, and put a wedge in the victory with consecutive birdies on the 14th and 15th holes. From the 14th hole, 2 consecutive tee shots were in danger of falling near the cart road, but he connected with a birdie, beating Marcus Helikkilde (10 under par, 278 strokes, Denmark) by 2 strokes and receiving a prize money of 340,000 dollars (approximately 450 million won) He has won 8 times on the DP World Tour.

Lara Sabal, who won the championship a year after the ISPS Handa Championship in Spain in April last year, said, “I am happy to win the new tournament held in Korea. I played a good game on an excellent course, and reducing one stroke yesterday in bad weather seemed to be the stepping stone to a come-from-behind victory.”

Lee Jeong-hwan and Kang Gyeong-nam tied for 10th place (7 under par, 281 strokes), and three Korean players entered the top 10. Bae Sang-moon, who is active on the US PGA Tour, as well as Wang Jeong-hoon and Kim Jae-ho finished tied for 14th place (6 under par, 282 strokes).
