Twelve new players, including Lee Dong-hwan (36), who has been on the PGA Tour, will debut on the Korea Professional Golf (PGA) Tour this year.

On the 15th, KPGA introduced the players who will debut in the first division of the Korean Tour this year. Lee Dong-hwan is the most eye-catching player. During his amateur days, he reached the top at the ‘Korea Amateur Golf Championship’ in 2003 and the ‘Japan Amateur Golf Championship’ in 2004. After serving as a member of the national team from 2004 to 2005, he entered the Japan Tour in 2006, became the youngest rookie of the year, and won a total of two games on the Japan Tour.

Lee Dong-hwan, who entered the PGA Tour in 2012 with the honor of becoming the first Asian player to pass the PGA Tour Qualifying School at the top of his class, returned to Korea after playing in the Korn Ferry Tour, the second division tour, until February 2022. Afterwards, he participated in the ‘KPGA Tour Qualifying Tournament’ in November of last year, tied for 25th place, and will officially debut on the KPGA Tour this year. 카지노사이트랭크

Lee Dong-hwan said, “I want to spend my rookie season with the mindset that it is my first start. “I will show good performance as I have spent time recharging after returning to Korea,” he said. “I will challenge for the Rookie of the Year Award (Outstanding Award) like Park Seong-jun did last year.”

Song Min-hyuk (20) is also worth noting. Song Min-hyuk won first place in the ‘KPGA Tour Qualifying Tournament’ last year and will debut on the KPGA Tour this year. Song Min-hyuk, who played for the national team last year starting in 2021, won 15 times during his amateur career alone. After qualifying as a KPGA Tour professional in July of last year, he mainly played in the second division tour.

Song Min-hyuk said, “I am nervous as it is his first season since his debut, but I am also excited. “He is currently focusing on weight training and flexibility training needed to improve his physical strength,” he said. “I want to be the winner of the Rookie of the Year award, which is only once in his life. “He will take a long view of the season and move forward.”

Players from the national team are also raising expectations.

Long hitter Kim Seung-min (24) served in the national reserve army from November 2018 to November 2020 and the national team from November 2020 to October 2021. He is 186cm tall and weighs 83kg, boasting a drive distance of over 300 yards. Seungmin Kim earned the right to participate by tying for 14th place in the ‘KPGA Tour Qualifying Tournament’ last year.

Kim Baek-jun (23, Team Sokchoi) and Kim Yong-tae (25, PXG), who entered the KPGA 1st division tour as top 10 Srixon points players through the KPGA 2nd division tour, the Srixon Tour, are also former national team members. Kim Baek-jun, who played as a national representative from 2019 to 2021, reported his first win in his professional debut at the ‘15th KPGA Srixon Tour Tournament’ last year. Kim Yong-tae, who played as a member of the national team in 2015, reached the top at the ‘3rd KPGA Srixon Tour Tournament’.
