Korean players are off to a good start.

Ahn Byeong-hoon (32) played without bogey in the first round of the Genesis Scottish Open (total prize money: $9 million) co-hosted by the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour and DP World Tour held at The Renaissance Club (par 70) in Scotland on the 14th (Korean time). He grabbed 9 birdies and took the lead by 2nd place and 2 strokes.스포츠토토

He lost his seed last season and went to the Corn Ferry Tour, but returned to the PGA Tour this year. But he hasn’t been able to get any results yet. Except for a tie for 4th at the opening Fortinet Championship held in September last year, the only top 10 record was a tie for 6th at the Texas Open in April.

Recently, his momentum has not been very good. After missing two consecutive cuts at the Travelers Championship and the Rocket Mortgage Classic in June, he tied for 51st at the John Deere Classic.

When the venue of the tournament changed to Europe, Ahn Byeong-hoon began to exert his strength. The fairway landing rate was 61.54%, the green hit rate was 77.78%, and the number of putts was only 23. He was helped by the broom stick putter he had brought with him from the last tournament.

He tried a two-on on the 10th hole (par 5), and his second shot went off the green. He attacked the hole with his approach and made a birdie about 1.5m from the hole. Ahn Byeong-hun, who gained momentum, made four consecutive birdies from holes 13 to 16.

His performance continued in the second half. In the second half of the second hole (par 4), the second shot was sent about 3m away, and the birdie putt was successful, and the third hole (par 5) also made a birdie putt less than 1m away. He also caught a birdie on the 5th hole (par 4) with a second shot within 2m.

In the last 9th hole (par 3), he even made a long-distance putt. Ahn Byeong-hoon added a birdie with a lightly successful 7.2m birdie putt. If you win this time, you will go directly to the Open Championship as well as your first win.

“Everything about how the ball reacts on the green was perfect. A few putts were straight that left me in a good spot. Everything went well,” Ahn said.

In addition to Ahn Byung-hoon, Lee Kyung-hoon (32) tied for 5th with a 5 under par 65 strokes, and Kim Joo-hyung (21) tied for 7th with a 4 under par 66 strokes. Kim Joo-hyung, who tied for 3rd place last year, will challenge for the top spot in this competition.

Kim Seong-hyeon (25) tied for 46th with a 1-under 69, and Lim Seong-jae (24) only recorded an even par. He showed play going back and forth between hot and cold baths with 4 birdies and 4 bogeys.

The second round of the Scottish Open will be broadcast live on the 14th at 8:30 pm on SPOTV Golf & Health and can also be viewed on the OTT service SPOTV NOW.
