– It’s your 3rd win in a major tournament, how do you feel?

▲ I had an injury and came back after a long time, but I was able to gain strength because many people supported me. It’s unbelievable, but I’m grateful that the result of my best effort was winning.

– Did you think you’d win this fast?

▲ I had no idea. I thought I had to come back by summer to adapt and improve my performance, but my performance improved faster than I thought.

– What motivated you to win the championship quickly?

▲ Mental strength was the most important. Everyone has great skills. I thought it was important how much you believed in me. I paid the most attention to that part from the time I was preparing for the final round. I tried not to be shaken by external stimuli.

– Where exactly was the surgery and how was the rehabilitation done?메이저사이트

▲ I did both the wrist and elbow. At first, it was not easy to even lift a hand, so I rehabilitated step by step, starting with breaking a joint. He thinks he’s done very well with his rehabilitation.

– Why does your wrist hurt?

▲ Compared to what I have, I used it a lot, so it piled up and my ligaments got worse. It was difficult because the pain was so severe, and I worked hard, but it seems that it was mentally difficult to be in pain like this. There is no problem with the game now, and I think it will get better in the future.

– 3 out of 7 wins are major tournaments?

▲ Winning a major tournament has a great meaning. I won in a difficult course setting, so I feel good in that I have a good performance. Winning a major tournament gives me great confidence. In the beginning, I thought a lot, ‘Am I lacking because I haven’t won a major tournament?’ I will continue to challenge myself so that I can win the remaining two competitions. I will prepare well and lead to good results.

– You won at the beginning of the season, but do you think you need to revise your goals?

▲ Goals should be modified, of course. The goal of winning more is important, but I think it is more important that I can continue to challenge myself. I think I will repeat the challenge and preparation this season as well.
