In the first round of the opening game of the 2023 Korean Tour, five players formed a co-leading group, predicting a fierce championship fight.
Seo Yo-seop and Jang Hee-min, who belong to DB, hit 5 under par 67 with 7 birdies and 2 bogeys in the first round of the DB Insurance Promy Open, the opening day of the Korean Tour season held at Ravier Bell CC (par 72) in Chuncheon, Gangwon-do on the 13th.
Seo Yo-seop, who tied for 10th at this tournament last year, is challenging his 6th Korean Tour career at his main sponsor event. After the match, Seo Yo-seop expressed his determination, saying, “I was in good condition today and my tee shot went well.”
Jang Hee-min, a second-year tour player who signed a sponsorship contract with DB this year, also raised the possibility of two wins in his career by co-leading in the opening game. After the game, Jang Hee-min expressed satisfaction, saying, “The iron shot was sharp and the tee shot fell well on the fairway. There were many birdie opportunities. The putt feeling was better than I thought.” 바카라사이트
In addition, last year’s Korean Tour Rookie of the Year, Bae Yong-joon, Go Gun-taek, and Kim Seung-hyeok were named joint leaders.
On the other hand, Kim Kyung-tae, who returned to the Korean Tour this season as a permanent seed, withdrew due to injury. Kim Gyeong-tae, who withdrew after the 15th hole that day, said, “Unfortunately, the pain was so severe that it was difficult for me to continue playing. I will receive treatment first and then set the schedule for the next game.”
Kim Kyung-tae, who made his debut on the Korean Tour in 2007, won 3 victories in his rookie season and showed his strength to become the prize money king. Kim Gyeong-tae, who moved to the Japan Professional Golf Tour (JGTO) after winning 6 wins in Korea, won 14 wins in total.
The first round started 20 minutes late because of frost. In the end, 9 players could not finish the game, so the rest of the game was played on the 14th.
