“I will do my best until the end rather than winning.”
Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour ‘rookie long hitter’ Bang Shin-sil (19) recently had a chance to win for the third time in less than a month, but she remained calm.

Bang carded five birdies and two bogeys for a three-under-par 69 on the second day of the KLPGA Tour’s 11th E1 Charity Open ($900,000) at Seongmunan Country Club (par-72, 6,602 yards) in Wonju, Gangwon Province, on Sunday.

With a two-day total of 7-under par 137, Bang is tied for the lead with Park Ji-young and Kim Hee-ji.
Tour rookie Bang has been in contention for the title on two occasions, finishing fourth at the KLPGA Championship in late April and third at the NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship two weeks ago, but her dreams of a first regular tour victory have to wait.토토사이트

“In the first half, I made some mistakes off the tee and couldn’t keep the fairway,” Bang said in an interview after the second round, “but in the second half, my putter fell well and I was able to cut my stroke count a little bit.”

Bang, who started on the 10th (par-4), made a 10-metre birdie putt at the first (par-4) and birdied the second (par-4) to build momentum with three consecutive birdies, but missed a 40cm par putt at the third (par-4).

“Then it started to rain and I lost my concentration, which was disappointing,” Bang said.

Heading into his third title in less than a month, he appeared to be worried about the pressure of winning, saying, “I’m not thinking about winning,” and “I’ll do my best until the end.”

However, Bang Shin-shil said, “I will not miss the opportunity when it comes,” and added, “I think the previous two championship group matches were due to psychological pressure and lack of experience.”

“Now that I’ve played in the Champions Group twice, I think I’ll be able to relax a little bit,” said Bang, who stands at 173cm and is known for his cool long game. “The support of the fans is also a big help on the course,” he added, asking for their support on the final day.

After complaining of a cold the day before, he played with a brace on his right wrist.

“It was a little uncomfortable (the wrist) because I didn’t sleep well,” said Bang, revealing his blueprint for his first win, “It will be important to play a good second shot tomorrow and get the ball to a good place to putt.”
