Kim Min-soo, the “strongest player in screen golf,” got his first chance to win at the Korea Professional Golf Association (KPGA) Korean Tour event.
In the second round of the KPGA Korean Tour KB Financial Live Championship (total prize money of 700 million won) held at the Black Stone Golf Club (par 72) in Icheon, Gyeonggi-do on the 26th, Kim Min-soo hit 3 under par 69 with 5 birdies and 2 bogeys.
Kim Min-soo, who recorded an interim total of 7 under par and 137 strokes, happily rounded the halfway point with Lee Jung-hwan as a joint leader.
Kim Min-soo is a player who has won double-digit championships in screen golf competitions. However, he seldom performs well on the Korean Tour. His best ever result is a tie for fourth place.
Kim Min-soo said, “In screen golf, variables such as distance and wind speed come out as numbers, so you can calculate them accurately. However, the field is difficult because there are too many variables. But field competitions are more fun and greedy. For now, the goal is to enter the top 10. everything,” he said.
Bae Yong-joon and Yeom Seo-hyun submitted a 5-under par of 139, placing in a tie for third place, two strokes behind the leading group.안전놀이터
