“Although I won the 36-hole championshipthis time, Iwill prove my worth by winning another title sooner rather than later.” These were the words of Kim Chan-woo, 23, who shot an 8-under 64 in the final two rounds of the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour’s Bizplay Electronics Newspaper Open at Cosmos Links (Par 72) in Yeongam-gun, Jeollanam-do on Sunday to win his first career title with a two-round total of 12-under 132.”Honestly, my priority at the start of this season was to maintain my seeding,” said Kim, who had just two top-10 finishes before winning this event on his debut last year. It was a natural goal for Kim, who had two top-10 finishes in his rookie season last year – a tie for third and a tie for ninth – but was unable to accumulate enough money and points to protect his seeding and had to play another qualifying tournament. He didn’t have a great start to the season this year either. By June, he had missed the cut four times and had accumulated just over $10 million in prize money. But he started to turn things around in the summer .In three tournaments from July through last month, he finished T18, T24, and T13, earning enough Genesis points to move into the top 60 to maintain his seeding. The KPGA Korean Tour offers seeding for the following year to players who finish in the top 70 in two categories: Genesis Points and money. Kim said, “My shot balance has improved since the summer. Both my tee shots and iron shots have improved,” he said. “Before, I was unsure of my swing, so I would go back and forth between this swing and that swing, but as my swing and thoughts became simpler, my results started to come.”Kim credits this win to a combination of confidence in his swing and the confidence he gained on the landfill course. Kim missed last year’s Woosung Open by one stroke. His tie for third place was his best finish since his debut .South Links Yeongam Kyle Phillipskos in Yeongam-gun, Jeollanam-do, where the Woosung General Construction Open was held, is adjacent to Cosmos Links, where the Bizplay Electronics Newspaper Open was held. The course was built on the same reclaimed land. “It’s a place where you have a clear view and there are no OBs, so I think it was the momentum of being able to swing without fear, including driver shots, that won me the title,” said Kim. “I had good memories of playing well at Yeongam last year, so I was more motivated this time around. “The Cosmos Rings, which was completed just before the tournament, is characterized by 365 bunkers shaped like craters .”I was scared at first because I didn’t have a practice round,” Kim said, “but I kept telling myself not to go into the bunkers.” Kim said he only lost a ball in a bunker 스포츠토토존 once in 36 holes. “It was urgent to get out,” he said. I made a bogey on the hole where I fell into the bunker.”
