“I remembered a good memory from the Presidents Cup.”
It’s a fresh start. Lee Gyeong-hoon (32, CJ Logistics) tied for second place on the first day of the PGA Tour Wells Fargo Championship (total prize money of 20 million dollars).
In the first round of the tournament held at Quail Hollow Club (par 71) in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA on the 5th (Korean time), Lee Kyung-hoon reduced 5 strokes with 6 birdies and 1 bogey. 5 under par 66 strokes tied for second place with Zander Shopley and others, only one stroke behind Tommy Fleetwood (England), the sole leader. He said, “I started with 5 under par today, and the putt was really good. Last year, I had good memories of playing the Presidents Cup here, so I had fun playing. He went through a crisis and took a lot of opportunities, but it seems like it was a day he just enjoyed, and the Presidents Cup experience helped a lot.”크크크벳
After writing down the bogey in hole 2 (par 4), he reduced the number of strokes by pulling out three birdies in the first and second half. He drove 3 birdies in holes 5 to 7 and dropped birdie putts in holes 10 (par 5) and 13 and 17 (above par 3). Lee Kyung-hoon said, “There was not much wind, so I played much more comfortably than during the practice round. He explained that the green was hard and fast, so I played with a bit of caution on it, and I think it went well today.”
Lee Gyeong-hoon, who won two career victories on the PGA Tour, participated in 15 competitions in the 2022-2023 season and reached the top 10 twice. The 3rd place alone at The CJ Cup held in October last year is his best result. Previously, he experienced PGA Tour victories by achieving two consecutive victories at AT&T Byron Nelson in May 2021 and May last year.
Kim Joo-hyung (21, Nike) caught only 4 birdies and tied for 7th place with Patrick Cantley and others with 4 under par and 67 strokes. Kim Si-woo also hit 5 birdies and 2 bogeys and is tied for 16th with a 3 under par 68 strokes. Lim Seong-jae tied for 25th with a 2 under par 69, and all four Korean brothers got off to a fresh start.
