Amateur Cho Woo-young, who reached the top in the KPGA Srixon Tour and Korean Tour this year, will compete against DP World Tour players this time.
Cho Woo-young will participate in the DP World Tour Korea Championship held at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in Songdo, Incheon for four days from the 27th. The day before the competition, Wooyoung Cho attended a press conference held at the Media Center.
Cho Woo-young reached the top of the Korean Tour Golf Zone Open in Jeju, which ended at Jeju Ora Country Club on the 23rd. After about 10 years since the 2013 Dongbu Fire Promy Open, he lifted the championship cup of the Korean Tour as an amateur.
He won the Golf Zone Open in Jeju and participated in this tournament as a recommended player. Cho Woo-young said, “I am honored to be in this tournament with an unexpected victory,” and “I am happy to be able to compete with talented players from the Korean Tour and DP World Tour ahead of the Asian Games.”
At the same time, Jo Woo-young said, “I fought a lot with the wind in Jeju Island last week. I needed time to reorganize,” but said, “I will try to use my skills to the fullest.”
Cho Woo-young, who said that the goal of this tournament was “passing the cut,” said, “I’ve experienced a lot since I was in elementary school at Ora CC, where last week’s tournament was held, but the course of this tournament is difficult to experience and the level of difficulty is high. I think I have to play to make good use of the wind.” He also revealed his strategy.크크크벳
The biggest goal this year is the gold medal at the Asian Games in Hangzhou, which will be held in September.
However, the Asian Games were postponed to September this year due to the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19). After much consideration, I decided to participate in the Asian Games, which were delayed for a year. Cho Woo-young emphasized, “I won the professional stage, but my goal is still the gold medal in the Asian Games.”
In order to win the gold medal, Cho Woo-young said, “I plan to appear in as many Korean Tour events as possible and adapt to different turf environments overseas.” After finishing this tournament, Wooyoung Cho will participate in the GS Caltex Maekyung Open next month and the Woori Financial Championship, a tournament hosted by his main sponsor.
