Lim Seong-jae (25‧ CJ Logistics), who returned to Korea after 3 years and 7 months, climbed the rankings two days in a row and took a joint 4th place.
In the 3rd round of the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour Woori Finance Championship (total prize money of 1.5 billion won) held at the Ferrum Club (par 72‧7232 yards) in Yeoju, Gyeonggi Province on the 13th, Lim Seong-jae made 5 birdies, 1 bogey, and 1 double bogey. He tied and shot 2-under-par 70.
Lim Seong-jae, who recorded a total of 210 strokes at 6 under par, climbed 4 places from the previous day and was tied for 4th place.
He recorded a total of 11 under par, 205 strokes, and was 5 strokes behind Choi Jin-ho (29‧ Cowell), who was in the sole lead.
Im Seong-jae, who did not live up to expectations with 1 under par on the first day, tied for 8th place in the 2nd round and was ranked in the ‘Top 5’ that day.
His start was not very good. Im Seong-jae, who was shaken by recording a double bogey in the 3rd hole (par 3), made up for his mistake with 4-5 consecutive birdies. Im Seong-jae, who exchanged bogeys with birdies on holes 9 (par 5) and 10 (par 4), added birdies on holes 12 and 13, raising the rankings.
Im Seong-jae said, “It was very disappointing to record a double bogey in hole 3, but I was able to change the mood by catching birdies in a row on holes 4 and 5.”토토사이트
Then he laughed, saying, “I haven’t made many birdie chances. It’s still difficult to adapt to the Korean turf.”
Im Seong-jae made up his mind to raise the rankings as much as possible on the last day. He said, “There is a difference between the current lead and the number of strokes, but tomorrow I will try to reduce the number of strokes,” he said.
Choi Jin-ho, who continued his upward trend for two days in a row, beat Yoon Sang-pil (25, Neu Felice) in second place by one stroke and entered the final round. Choi Jin-ho is a Genesis target in 2016 and 2017, and will challenge for a total of 9 wins on the KPGA tour in 8 months since the Biz Play electronic newspaper opened in September last year.
Choi Jin-ho said, “Today’s overall shot feeling was very good.”
He then said, “It will be difficult to find the pin position in the final round,” and then he said, “I will try to keep the fairway during the tee shot.
The third place is Han Seung-soo (37, Hana Financial Group), a Korean-American player who wrote 7 under par and 209 strokes.
In addition, long hitter Jeong Chan-min (24, CJ Logistics), who won the GS Caltex Maekyung Open last week, tied for 32nd with an even par of 216.
