Im Seong-jae showed off his potential in the great marriage that started when Choi Jin-ho collapsed with a triple bogey on hole 3 (par 3). After a birdie on the 11th hole (par 4) and a two-on on the 12th hole (par 5), Im Seong-jae put a 3m eagle putt and caught up with Lee Jun-seok by one stroke. I added it and went up to the co-leader.
In the last hole, Lim Seong-jae’s world-class skills shone. While Lee Jun-seok made a long eagle putt after successfully making a two-on on the 18th hole (par 5), Lim Seong-jae fell into a bunker 50m in front of the green and faced a disadvantageous situation. However, Im Seong-jae placed a bunker shot 1.5m away from the hole and put birdie putt to put pressure on the opponent, and Lee Jun-seok sent a shorter birdie putt to the left, and the game was split.
Im Seong-jae said in an interview with the championship, “The 50m bunker shot is the most difficult shot on the PGA Tour. He practiced a lot of long bunker shots, and I was able to make use of that feeling and hit it with a pitching wedge well, so I was able to connect to a birdie.”온라인카지노
Lim Seong-jae, who put his mind down after two bogeys in the beginning, said, “After the first half (in the same group), Jun-seok hyung was in the lead, so I thought, ‘What is this?’, and I was aiming for the championship until the end.” I thought I could, and I expected the game to be decided on the last hole.”
Lim Seong-jae, who was unable to even participate in the PGA Championship, a major U.S. major tournament, due to Corona 19 right before participating in this tournament last year, said, “Last year, I was very depressed and regretful, but now I am relieved.” I will play,” he promised.
