Can Chan-min Jeong (24), who achieved his first win in his life with Wire-to-Wire at the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Tour GS Caltex Maekyung Open (total prize money of 1.3 billion won), stand on the American stage?
On the 7th, Jeong Chan-min achieved a victory by 6 strokes from second place in the final round of the GS Caltex Maekyung Open at Namseoul Golf Course (par 71) in Seongnam. Jung Chan-min, who made his Korean Tour debut last year, scored his first win in his 19th tournament.
Jeong Chan-min, who has a solid physique of 188cm and 120kg, was a promising player nicknamed the Korean monster like Ryu Hyun-jin.
Jeong Chan-min made his name known by winning the Songam Cup Amateur Golf Championship in 2016-2017, and served as the national team member in 2017-2018.
He ranked first in Srixon points in the second part of the 2021 tour and debuted on the KPGA Korean Tour, the first part of the tour last year. In the first year of his debut, Jung Chan-min ranked first in the ‘rocket battery average drive distance’ category with 317.111 yards and became the long hit king.
Jeong Chan-min, who won his first championship this time, has expressed his intention to focus on the Korean stage, but he is not giving up his will to challenge the American stage. There are evaluations that Chan-min Jung’s long hitting power can be used in the US PGA.
Jung Chan-min tied for 59th in the last round of the Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying Tournament, the second part of the PGA Tour last year, and obtained a partial seed for the Korn Ferry Tour. Accordingly, Jung Chan-min participated in the Astara Chile Championship, a Korn Ferry Tour event held in Chile last month, but was eliminated from the cut.
At the time,토스카지노 Jeong Chan-min expressed regret, saying, “If I was in the top 25, I could have participated in about 10 tournaments this season, but I missed the cut, so I don’t think I will be able to participate in this year’s Con Ferry Tour any more.”
Still, Jung Chan-min did not give up his will to challenge the United States. In an interview with KPGA at the opening of the 18th DB Insurance Promy, the opening match of the 2023 season on the 13th of last month, Jeong Chan-min said, “I plan to focus on the KPGA Korean Tour for now. I plan to work hard with the goal of winning every tournament.” I plan to challenge the Korn Ferry Tour Q School again.”
Jeong Chan-min even earned the nickname of Korea’s Yon-Ram because of his long hitting power, long hair, and beard in this tournament. It seems impossible to rule out the possibility that Jung Chan-min will land on the PGA stage within a few years and compete with world No. 1 Yon Ram.
