Bae Yong-joon broke through the bad weather “Overall satisfied, tomorrow is under par”
- on Apr 29, 2023
Last year’s KPGA Tour Rookie of the Year, Bae Yong-joon broke through bad weather and recorded even par for three rounds in a row.
On the 29th at Jack Nicklaus GCK in Songdo, Incheon, Bae Yong-joon recorded an even par of 72 during the 3rd round of the ‘DP World Tour Korea Championship Presented by Genenis’.
Bae Yong-joon, who recorded even in the first and second rounds, tied for 52nd with an even par of 216. Bae Yong-joon narrowly escaped the cut by finishing in a tie for 47th in the first round and in a tie for 57th in the second round.
Bae Yong-joon is in good condition at the beginning of the season, finishing in 5th place at the DB Insurance Promy Open, the opening game of the season, and tying for 8th place at the Golfzon Open in Jeju held last week.
In the third round of the day, Bae Yong-joon was in group 5 with Mathieu Pavon, who is ranked 44th in the European Tour rankings, and started rounding after teeing off at 7:50 a.m. on the first hole.
However, it was difficult to proceed with the game due to rain from the previous day and sea fog from dawn, and in the end, the game was suspended twice and faced with a variable delay of 2 hours and 10 minutes. In the end토스카지노, Bae Yong-joon was able to complete the 3rd round schedule well past 2:00 PM.
After rounding, I met Bae Yong-joon at the Mixed Zone.
Bae Yong-joon said, “The weather today was really bad. It rained, the wind blew, and the temperature plummeted. He rested for two hours and waited while stretching for about 30 minutes in fear that his body would harden.”
In this tournament, when a hole-in-one is recorded on the 17th hole, a Genesis vehicle is given to the caddy as well as the player. However, Bae Yong-joon struggled to bogey in the 3rd round following the double bogey in the 2nd round.
Regarding this, Bae Yong-joon said, “It seems that there was a mistake due to the wind rather than being greedy for a car. It was a tailwind at the time of the tee shot, but I couldn’t grasp it well and I think I put more energy into it,” he laughed.
On the last 18th hole, I was rather lucky. The grass was blown before the driver shot, but the wind stopped momentarily when Bae Yong-joon shot. Bae Yong-joon said, “I thought there would be a slice, but still he hit the fade. He caught the wind and landed in a good spot.”
Lastly, Bae Yong-joon said, “I hit even par on all three days. He had some unsatisfying plays, but there were also good scenes, so he is satisfied. With one day left tomorrow, he wants to hit under par to move up the rankings.”
