Byun made 10 birdies and one bogey in the first round of the tournament at Yeongam 45 (par 72/7556 yards) in Yeongam, Jeollanam-do on the 9th.

This year’s event will be conducted in a modified stableford format, in which scores are scored according to each hole’s performance and the rankings are determined by summing up the scores. Albatross gets eight points, eagle gets five points, birdie gets two points, par gets zero, bogey gets one point and double bogey gets three points.

Byun Jin-jae, who scored 19 points in the first round, took the lead by beating second-place Kim Han-byul (18 points) by one point.

Byun made his debut in the KPGA tour in 2011, but he has yet to win the title. His best personal record is that he finished second at the Busan Open of the Dong-A Membership Group in 2018. He is aiming for his first career victory at the championship.

Starting at Hole 10, Byun made a bogey at Hole 11, getting off to a shaky start. However, he changed the mood by making birdies at Hole 12 and 13, and added birdies at Hole 16.

Byun started hunting for points in the second half. He gained momentum by posting birdies at the first hole, and garnered six consecutive birdies from the third to eighth holes. After scoring 19 points at 18 holes in the first round, Byun finished the first round as the lead.

“I bogeyed the first hole, but as time passed, I felt more sense of play. I had a good shot, and I understood the slope well when putting. Iron shots within 150 meters were really good. As a result, it was easy to hit the green, and I was able to send the ball to a more comfortable position to putt,” Byun said.

“This is the first time I’ve recorded seven birdies in nine holes since I debuted on the tour,” he said. “It was windy as we entered the second half, but the strength was not strong. I think it was advantageous to play early in the morning when there was no wind.”

Byun Jin-jae also said, “Even if the flow is not good in the beginning like today, if you believe in yourself and play calmly, I think there will be good results in the second round,” adding, “The goal is to win as there is no first win of the tour yet.”

Kim Han-byul scored 18 points with 1 eagle, 7 birdies, and 1 bogey, ranking second. Kim Han-byul, who won the Yamaha and Honors K Open in 2021, will once again try to win the modified stableford competition.

Lee Jung-hwan finished third with 16 points, while Lee Kyu-min and Kim Chan-woo tied for fourth with 15 points.토토사이트 추천
