Park Bo-gyeom (25, Angang Construction), who maintained his lead until the second round, is challenging for his second win of the season.
Park Bo-gyeom will be part of the champion group and aim to win the final round of the 2023 KLPGA Tour ‘OK Financial Group Shotman Open’ held at the Club 72 Sky Course located in Yeongjong, Incheon on the 17th.
Park Bo-gyeom, who recorded 6 under par 66 strokes in the first round, also recorded 7 under par 65 strokes in the second round without a single bogey, taking the sole lead with an intermediate total of 13 under par 131 strokes. Park Bo-gyeom is in the champion group along with Lee Ji-hyun2 and Madasom (12 under par) and is expected to win the championship.
Park Bo-gyeom experienced his first win in his career at the Kyochon 1991 Ladies Open held last May. But he wasn’t the outright winner. At that time, the competition lasted only until the second round due to rain, and Park Bo-gyeom, who was in the lead, won the championship trophy.토토사이트
Park Bo-gyeom, who finished the second round, said in a Mixed Zone interview, “The first win was held in a reduced competition. “Maybe that’s why I always wanted to prove myself more,” he said. “So I was happy to win, but I practiced more strictly with myself after that. “I hope there will be good results in this competition,” he said.
The final round is expected to be very intense. This is because the tournament is held over three rounds, so the number of strokes of the top players is closely intertwined.
While Park Bo-gyeom takes the lead with 13 under par, Lee Ji-hyun 2 and Madasom are tied together in the champion group and aim for the championship. While Park Bo-gyeom achieved his first win this season, Lee Ji-hyeon and Madasom, who have not yet won a championship, must overcome the pressure.
Ji-Hyeon Lee 2 said, “The iron shot was good and the putt was good at mid to long distances. Rather than thinking about winning, I remember having a hard time due to injury last year. “The bigger goal is to finish each competition well without any injuries,” he said.
Madasom also said, “I was so immersed in the game that I didn’t even realize I had recorded 6 birdies,” and added, “Compared to last year, my play around the green has improved a lot. Because I take advantage of many opportunities, I seem to often play in the upper ranks. “I think I need to reduce at least 6 strokes in the final round to compete for the championship,” he said.
Lee Ye-won, the top prize money winner who was tied for the lead in the first round, failed to reduce the number of strokes compared to her competitors with a 2-under-par 70 strokes on this day. However, considering Lee Ye-won’s stable and consistent performance as she is 5 strokes behind the leader, she is expected to be the eye of the typhoon in the race for the championship.
