There is a player called ‘Golf Woo Young-woo’ on the Korean Professional Golf Association (KPGA) Korean Tour. This is Seung-min Lee (26, Hana Financial Group), who overcame autistic developmental disorder, was accepted as a regular member of KPGA, and is currently participating in tour activities. Seungmin Lee earned 83.75 re-ranking points in the first half of this season, ranked 39th, and succeeded in participating in the Bizplay Electronic Newspaper Open last week for the first time in his career.
He performed well on the first day with 4 under par. However, the tournament was disrupted due to bad weather and he failed to control his condition, so he lost 2 strokes in the second round and was 1 stroke short of the cut standard, so he failed to make the cut.
He is competing on his own for the second time in his career. This is the KPGA Korean Tour iMBank Open, which will be held at the Pami Hills CC East Course (par 71, 7,194 yards) in Chilgok-gun, Gyeongsangbuk-do for four days starting on the 21st.메이저사이트
A total of 132 players, including Seung-min Lee, will participate in this competition, which was held as the DGB Financial Group Open until last year, and are expected to compete fiercely for the championship. Seungmin Lee’s driver distance has now increased to about 300 yards, making it possible to target two-on par 5 holes.
Seung-min Yoon, Seung-min Lee’s coach and caddy, said, “When I was invited, there was a lot of pressure to ‘play well’, but now that I am participating on my own, the pressure is lessened, so I can clearly see him enjoying the round.” He added, “Last week’s competition was on the 13th hole. The ball that went well into the fairway got stuck and could not be found, so it was lost and failed to make the cut by 1 stroke. Seungmin Lee expressed his determination, saying, “I will do my best in this competition with the goal of passing the cut.”
Seungmin Lee participated in 10 competitions this season and succeeded in passing the cut at the Golfzon Open in Jeju and the KB Financial Live Championship. In particular, he tied for 37th place at the KB Financial Live Championship, breaking his personal best result.
