Park made his Korean Tour debut in 2005 and has 12 career wins. He also became the first player on the Korean Tour to earn more than 5 billion won. In 2018, he was also the money winner.
Unfortunately, he did not win the Genesis Grand Prize, which is awarded to the player who performs consistently throughout the season. After winning the Korean Tour Genesis Championship two weeks ago, Park announced his intention to “cancel my participation in the Asian Tour and dedicate myself to the Korean Tour in order to win the Genesis Grand Prize and the money prize.”
Park made progress toward his goal by taking the lead on the first day of the Korean Tour Baeksong Holdings-ASIAADCC Busan Open.
Park carded an eagle and eight birdies for a 10-under-par 61 in the first round of the Baeksong Holdings-ASIAADCC Busan Open at Asiad CC (Par 71) in Busan on Saturday.
Park set an official tournament record for lowest 18-hole score and moved to the top of the leaderboard by two strokes over Ham Jung-woo.
Park is looking for his second straight win and 13th career victory. Currently fourth on the Genesis Order of Merit (4138.69 points), Park will receive 1,000 points if he wins this tournament and can move into first place depending on how his competitors perform.
This will give him an advantage in the race for his first Korean Tour Genesis Award. After the tournament, Park said, “Everything was good,” and added, “I played relaxed rather than trying to play too well, and the results were good.”짱구카지노
“The moment the putter hit the ball, I knew it was going in,” he said, adding, “If I missed the tee shot, the second shot was a recovery, and I was satisfied with my short game, so it was a day where all three beats went well.”
As for his strategy for the rest of the round, Park said, “I think I’ll just have to play like I did today. If I don’t lose my current rhythm rather than practicing too much, I will have a good result.”
Ham Jeong-woo, who leads the Genesis Grand Prize points, also had a strong day, birdieing seven holes in a row to move into second place. Lee Sang-hee, Kim Min-joon and Kim Chan-woo tied for third after shooting 7-under 64.
Defending champion Hwang Jung-gon finished the first day in a tie for 45th place.
