On the first day of the Korea Professional Golf Korean Tour Woori Financial Championship, PGA Tour star Im Seong-jae and ‘monster long hitter’ Jeong Chan-min and veteran Park Sang-hyun started in a tie for second place.

Park Sang-hyun shot a 4-under 68 in the first round of the tournament held at the Ferrum Club in Yeoju-si, Gyeonggi-do.

On this day, Park Sang-hyun played a game with Lim Seong-jae, ranked 18th in the world, and Jeong Chan-min, who won his first career championship at the GS Caltex Maekyung Open last week, with a long hit of nearly 400 yards.

From the tee box of the 1st hole, nearly a thousand galleries came to see Lim Seong-jae and Jung Chan-min, and although it was far behind the two players in distance, the first round score was Park Sang-hyun’s decision victory.

Park Sang-hyun reduced 4 strokes with 5 birdies and 1 bogey on this day, while Lim Seong-jae and Jeong Chan-min hit 1 under par 71 strokes side by side.스포츠토토

Park Sang-hyun, who has won the KPGA Korean Tour 11 times and is ranked first in prize money, is not good at long hitting power, but with accurate iron shots, computer-like short games, and green plays, he made it to the top of the first day.

Lim Seong-jae was cruising by reducing 3 strokes until the 8th hole, but was caught by a tee shot error on the par 5 9th hole.

A ball that deviated too far from the fairway and flew to the left became a lost ball, and Im Seong-jae, who wrote down a double bogey, lost one stroke in the 10th hole as well.

Still, I finished the first round under par with a birdie on the 18th hole.

Jeong Chan-min also lost two strokes when his tee shot at the 5th hole flew into the forest and became a lost ball.

Jeong Chan-min, who also bogeyed the 6th hole, picked up the mood with a birdie on the 7th hole, then made up for the lost number of strokes by adding 3 birdies and finished the first round with an under par.

Han Seung-soo, winner of the 2020 LG Signature Players Championship, took the lead with six birdies and a bogey.

Amateur national team members Jang Yu-bin, Kang Gyeong-nam, and Choi Jin-ho tied for second place with Park Sang-hyun with a 4 under par 68 strokes.

Defending champion Jang Hee-min hit a 3-under-par 69 to tie for 8th place.
