Can Choi Ho-seong (50), the ‘fisherman swing’, overcome his limitations and win the championship?
In the 3rd round of the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour SK Telecom Open (total prize money of 1.3 billion won) held at the Pinx Golf Club (par 71) in Seogwipo-si, Jeju on the 20th, Choi Ho-seong scored 5 birdies and 1 bogey to record 4 under par 67 strokes. .
Choi Ho-seong, who recorded an interim total of 11-under 202, tied for the lead with Baek Seok-hyun. He is recording his 2nd win on the Korean Tour, and he is challenging for his 3rd win. If he wins, he will reach the top in about 12 years since winning the Lake Hills Open in 2011.
Choi Ho-seong, who caught his first birdie on the 4th hole (par 5), also added a birdie on the 6th hole (par 4) with a second shot about 2m from the hole. After catching a birdie on the 11th hole (par 4) in the second half, he made a 15m birdie putt on the 14th hole (par 3). He added a birdie on the 16th hole (par 5), but missed the par putt on the 17th hole (par 3) and recorded a bogey.
Choi Ho-seong, who recorded under par for all three days, said, “I expected that all players’ scores would be good because the weather was good. I thought that I would be able to compete for the championship in the final round if I cut 3 or 4 strokes, but I am satisfied with 4 strokes less.”
He continued, “I’m sorry to see the 17th hole. The approach was good, but unfortunately I got a bogey. I think the same goes for the players,” he added.토스카지노
As the first round was postponed due to bad weather, he endured well even in the difficult situation of having to play 27 holes the day before (19th). Choi Ho-seong said, “It wasn’t easy. It was hard. The soles of my feet are a bit heavy. It’s throbbing. But it’s fortunate that the weather forecast for the final round was clear.”
He even came of age to debut on the Champions Tour this year. He said, “It feels good to be on this stage with young players. I’m old, but as the saying goes, ‘go against time’, I always want to overcome my limits. I wonder when and how far I will go.” I want to do it like today. I’m physically exhausted, but I have to overcome this situation to win the championship trophy.”
