Seo Yeon-jeong, who has been competing in competitions for six consecutive weeks since the opening in the second half of August, is resting this week and preparing for the next competition.

I put down the golf club for a while and took a break, but when I saw my teammates playing, I guess I felt the same way.
Seo Yeon-jeong sighed briefly, saying, “It’s not easy to follow all 18 holes,” and then smiled, “Seeing the game outside the course made me want to go in and play right away.” At the same time, when the senior she was cheering for finished with a good score, she said, “He did well because I cheered him on,” and attributed Kim Hae-rim’s performance today to her cheering. In response, Hae-rim Kim took care of her junior, saying, “Let’s go eat.”
