‘Golf’s Woo Young-woo makes second appearance as a self-starter… “I’ll do my best to make the cut”

There is a player on the Korean Professional Golf Association (KPGA) Korean Tour who has been dubbed “Golf Woo. Lee Seung-min (26, Hana Financial Group) overcame autism to become a full member of the KPGA and play on the tour. Lee earned 83.75 ranking points in the first half of the season and is ranked 39th in the world, making his first career start at the Bizplay E-Newspaper Open last week.

He opened with a 4-under par score on the first day. However, as the tournament was disrupted by inclement weather, he was unable to control his conditions and dropped two strokes in the second round, falling one stroke short of the cut.

He will be competing on his own for the second time in his career. It is the KPGA Korean Tour’s iMBank Open, which will be held at Pami Hills CC East Course (Par 71-7194) in Chilgok-gun, North Gyeongsang Province for four days starting on May 21.

A total of 132 players, including Lee, are expected to compete in the tournament, which until last year was known as the DGB Financial Group Open. Lee’s driver distance has now increased to about 300 yards, allowing him to hit two-ons on the par-5s.메이저놀이터

“When I was playing in the invitational, I had a lot of pressure to play well,” said Yoon Seul-ki, Lee’s coach and caddie, “but now that I’m playing on my own, I’m enjoying my round because I don’t have that pressure.” “Last week’s tournament, I missed the cut by one stroke because I hit a ball that went well into the fairway on the 13th hole and couldn’t find it, so I was roasted. I will do my best to make the cut this time,” said Lee.

Lee has played in 10 tournaments this season and made the cut at the Golf Zone Open in Jeju and the KB Financial Live Championship. In particular, he tied for 37th place at the KB Financial Live Championship, which was his best finish.
