Long hitter Jung Chan-min drew attention by using a wedge on the green.
Jung Chan-min hit the green twice in the 18th hole (par 5) in the first round of the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour KB Financial Live Championship held at Blackstone Golf Club (par 72) in Icheon, Gyeonggi-do on the 25th.메이저사이트
However, the pin was placed behind the second-tier green, but the ball was placed in the center of the first-tier green, 20 meters away, so it was not easy to catch a birdie with two putts, let alone an eagle.
Jeong Chan-min, who had been discussing with his caddy for a long time, was handed a wedge instead of a putter.
The ball sent by Chung Chan-min with a wedge fell 3m in front of the hole, rolled slightly, and stopped less than 1m away.
I hit it with a wedge, but the green was clean and unscathed. It was a technical shot using wedge bounce.
The audience applauded the magical green wedge shot.
Jeong Chan-min put in a light birdie putt and finished the first round in a good mood with a 1-under-par 71 strokes.
Jeong Chan-min said, “I told my caddy that if I hit it with a putter, I would make 3 putts. I told him that it would be better if I hit it with a wedge, so I tried it, and the result was good.”
He confessed, “I tried it once during the practice round, but the green didn’t get damaged.
There is no rule that you must use a putter on the green in a golf tournament. You can use any club, not just wedges. Damage to the green is not a violation of the rules.
Jeong Chan-min rode a roller coaster with 5 birdies, 1 double bogey and 2 bogeys.
When he caught the driver, he was still able to easily pass 300 yards. He also took a 370-yard tee shot on the 6th hole.
In the 18th hole, he hit a 309-yard tee shot with a hybrid club and hit the green with an iron with 240 yards left.
But when he made a mistake, he struggled to recover. In the 8th hole (par 4) double bogey, the ball hit from the bunker fell into the water.
Jeong Chan-min said, “It was difficult because I was tired after winning my first championship. I decided to take a break for the next tournament to relieve mental and physical fatigue. I will do my best in this tournament.”
Jung Chan-min, who tied for 9th place by 3 strokes after being tied for 9th place by 3 strokes with 4 under par 68 strokes, said, “I thought it would be nice to hit under par, but it feels good to finish with under par.” After scoring, I definitely feel that I have grown.”
