Chris FnC KLPGA (Korea Women’s Professional Golf Association) Championship (total prize money 1.3 billion won, championship prize money 234 million won) Park Kyul, who leads the interim total, expressed his intention to finish the tournament with his best.
Park Gyeol hit a 2 under par 70 with 3 birdies and 1 bogey in the 2nd round of the tournament held on the 28th at Lakewood Country Club, Yangju, Gyeonggi-do, on the mountain path-forest path course (par 72, 6570 yards). She jumped to her sole lead, overtaking Park Gyeol-eun, Lee Da-yeon, Han Jin-seon, and Choi Ye-rim (more than 6 under par, 138 strokes), who scored an interim total of 7 under par 137 strokes.
After the match, Gyeol Park said,ㅋㅋㅋ벳 “The distance has increased compared to last year and the year before last. If I go the farthest, it seems to go up to 235m. I did a lot of physical training during winter training. The distance was always stressful, but I’m trying not to be stressed, and I’m trying not to be stressed every time. Every time I do it, I hit it with all my might,” he said. She continued, “Last year, I had a lot of trouble with iron shots. The hit rate on the green dropped a lot, so I practiced mainly with iron shots.” It seems to work well,” he explained. Regarding her match, she said, “I think yesterday (round 1) went very well. Today, I made fewer birdies than yesterday, but I made a lot of par saves on the holes I had to block, so I think I did well in my own way.”
Park Gyeol, who entered the KLPGA in 2014, continues her unrelated career after winning her first career win at the 2018 SK Networks-Seoul Economic Daily Ladies Classic. As she has risen to the top of major tournaments, her desire to win is bound to grow.
Gyeol Park said of his strategy, “Because it takes a lot of energy when it rains, I will play with the thought of holding a long stick only on the fairway first. I try not to go too aggressive.” Regarding the inevitably growing motivation at the top of the leaderboard, he said, “If the third round was over, I would have been very nervous and nervous, but there is no such thing because it is the second round yet. I think I will know when it is over.” At the same time, he expressed his intention to do his best, saying, “It would be great if I won because the goal was always to win, but I’m trying not to cling too much.”
