This Korea Championship was the first European Tour event held in Korea 10 years after the 2013 Ballantine’s Championship held at Blackstone Icheon.
After tying for 6th place at the Valentine’s Championship 10 years ago, Lara Sabal left a good memory in Korea by taking the trophy this time.
Lara Sabal laughed, saying, “I am more happy to win in Korea, where the DP World Tour has not been held for 10 years. I liked playing in Korea, and with this victory, it has become one of my favorite countries in the world.” Lara Sabal left a strong impression on Korean golf fans because the name of ‘Sabal’ is similar to that of Jose Maria Olasabal, who swept world golf in the 1980s and 90s.
He said, “When I played in Korea in the past, I remember that the course and galleries were good. I think the passion of Korean galleries is similar to that of Spain.”
Regarding the game that day, “After bogeying the 10th hole, I was able to catch a birdie on the 11th hole, and it was an overall turning point. I was also lucky on the 15th hole, where I was ahead by another car.”
La Rasabal, who will celebrate his 40th birthday on May 15, two weeks later, will have his older brother’s wedding next weekend, so this victory has a great meaning.
On the other hand, Lara Sabal said of Spanish golfers, led by Yon Rahm, who is currently ranked No. 1 in the world, “Our strength is ‘passion.’ “, he even said.
Park Sang-hyun, who competed in the lead throughout this tournament, recorded a final total of 9 under par 279 strokes, finishing in a tie for 3rd place, 3 strokes behind winner Pablo Larazabal (Spain).
With the third round disrupted by bad weather the previous day, Park Sang-hyun, who played the remaining four holes first and then made a forced march to the final round, started the final round with a tie for second place by a stroke and did not achieve a come-from-behind victory, but achieved the best performance among Korean players. left [Incheon = Reporter Kim Hak-soo]
