Seo Yo-seop predicted an escape from the slump with ‘Olympic Buddy’. We also established a bridgehead for our first win this year.

Seo Yo-seop made a bogey but made 7 birdies in the first round on the first day of the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour Biz Play Electronic News Open (total prize money of 700 million won) held at Cosmos Lynx CC (par 72) in Yeongam, Jeollanam-do on the 14th. .

Seo Yo-seop, who recorded a total of 6 under par 66 strokes in the first round, started comfortably in fourth place, one stroke behind the joint leading group of Lee Seung-taek, Park Eun-shin, and Korean-American Jeong Yoon (7 under par 65 strokes).

Seo Yo-seop, a ‘talented player’ with a total of 5 wins on the Korean Tour, is struggling to get out of the swamp of sluggishness this season. Since placing 3rd in the DB Insurance Promy Open in the opening game, he has not made it into the top 10 even once, and has not advanced to the final round of 3 consecutive competitions in the second half of the year. 

In the first round of the Shinhan Donghae Open, which ended last week, Seo Yo-seop’s score was 80, which is hard to believe. 

Seo Yo-seop confessed his difficulties, saying, “Recently, everything hasn’t worked out well. I keep getting penalized for going out of bounds (OB) or in the penalty area, so it was difficult to reduce my score even if I made a lot of birdies.” 먹튀검증

This day was noticeably different from recent appearances. Seo Yo-seop, who started from the 10th hole, completed his adaptation to the course by catching one birdie in the first 9 holes.

Seo Yo-seop, who added a birdie on hole 1, the first hole of the second half, raised his ranking to the top by showing off the so-called ‘Olympic birdie’ by making birdies in 5 consecutive holes up to the 5th hole. 

In the 8th hole (par 5), I failed to hit the green with my third shot and ended up with a bogey. However, in the final 9th ​​hole (par 4), he made a birdie by hitting his second shot 1m from the hole and made up for his mistake. 

Seo Yo-seop said, “I was able to play with peace of mind because my tee shots were caught little by little and there were not many OB areas. As I got consecutive birdies, I gained confidence and I think I played well as I thought.” He added, “I try not to think about the past. There are still a lot of competitions left in the second half of the year. “I will focus on consistently playing at the top and do my best. I think it would be great if this week’s competition becomes a turning point,” he said with a bright smile.

Seungtaek Lee and Yoon Jeong, who returned to the Korean Tour this year after completing their military service, are attempting to win for the first time in their lives. Park Eun-shin, who won two games last year, laid the foundation for her first win this season.

Defending champion Choi Jin-ho was tied for 14th place with 4 under par and 68 strokes. 

Ko Gun-taek, who is attempting to win his fourth win of the season since Sang-ho Choi in 1992, is tied for 81st with an even-par score of 72, making passing the cut a priority.
