Im Seong-jae and Jeong Chan-min, 1 under par side by side in the 1st round of KPGA Tour Woori Finance…’Cloud crowd’ gathered and realized popularity

On the 11th, the first round of the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour Woori Finance Championship was held at the Ferrum Club in Yeoju-si, Gyeonggi-do. To see the two golf stars, the area around the tee box at hole 1 was filled with golf fans in the scorching sun.

Golf fans gathered to see Im Seong-jae, the “world class” who appeared on the KPGA Korean Tour stage for the first time in 3 years and 7 months, and Jeong Chan-min, who won his first championship with an explosive long-stroke over 300 yards at the GS Caltex Maekyung Open last week.

Im Seong-jae, who has the highest world ranking (18th) among Korean players and has won twice on the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour, has not played in domestic competitions since the Genesis Championship in October 2019.

He, who was going to participate in the Woori Financial Championship last year, had to turn around after testing positive for a novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) the day before the opening day of the tournament.

Im Seong-jae finished in a tie for 8th after running at the top for four days at the Wells Fargo Championship on the PGA Tour.

Quite a few fans came to see Jeong Chan-min, a monster long hitter who won the GS Caltex Maekyung Open on the 7th with a terrifying long hit of nearly 400 yards.

Lim Seong-jae and Jung Chan-min played together at the first hole at 12:57 p.m.

Thanks to KPGA Korean Tour’s leading star, Park Sang-hyun, teeing off with the two, the number of cloud spectators continued to increase.

By the time they finished playing the first hole, the gallery following them had surpassed 1,000.

It is estimated that more than half of the 1,800 galleries counted who passed through the entrance of the venue that day watched the game of these three players.메이저사이트
