Park Sang-hyun (40) took pride in Korea at the DP World Tour co-sponsored event held in Korea in 10 years.
Park Sang-hyun scored 6 birdies and 1 bogey in the first round of the Korea Championship (total prize money of 2 million dollars) co-hosted by the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour and DP World Tour held at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea (par 72) in Songdo, Incheon on the 27th. He tied the dog and recorded a 5-under 67.
Park Sang-hyun, who started on the 10th hole (par 4), caught his first birdie on the 15th hole (par 5) and continued his flow with consecutive birdies on the 17th and 18th holes. The birdie on the 3rd hole (par 5) faded to look at the 4th hole (par 4), but the birdie on the 7th hole (par 5) and the 9th hole (par 4) was weeded out and ranked at the top.
Although he is four strokes behind the sole leader Antoine Rosner (France), he is in a position where he can expect a reversal over the remaining three days. Also, as the tournament is held in Korea, it is relatively advantageous for Korean players. Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea is also a place familiar to domestic players as it hosts the Korean Tour Genesis Championship.
Park Sang-hyun said, “The pin position is more difficult than at the Genesis Championship, and the greens are hard. I think I was able to achieve this level of results because the short game was done as I wanted.” Accuracy and details of the short game must be right to achieve good results. Currently, not only the driver, but also the iron shot feels good, so I swung confidently even when the pin was in the corner of the green.”온라인카지노
This tournament is organized by the Korean Tour and the DP World Tour for the first time in 10 years. Until now, Korean Tour players have not won. Park Sang-hyun said, “I participated in the Valentine’s Championship, a co-hosted event held in Korea in 2011, and I placed third. Compared to before, the Korean Tour players have improved their skills, so I think there is a good chance. Among the players, ‘Korean players won the title’. There will be plenty of opportunities to do it,” he said.
“Since the preferred lie is applied every round, you can get good results if you control the amount of spin well. As time passes, the wind will become stronger and the pin position will become more difficult. The green will become harder and it is difficult to predict what variables will emerge. No. Once the preferred lie is applied, the score will be better than expected.”
