Bang Shin-sil (19), who won two consecutive group stage wins at the Korea Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour Doosan Match Play Championship (total prize money of 900 million won), said, “This is the first match play. But I feel comfortable because I can use my strengths.”
In the second round of the group stage of the tournament held at Ladena Golf Club (par 72) in Chuncheon, Gangwon-do on the 18th, Bang Shin-sil left one hole for Lee Chae-eun (24) and won by 2 holes (2&1).
Bang Shin-sil said in an official interview after the game, “I had a lot of difficulties because the overall shot was shaking, but I was able to win by saving well.”
Bang Shin-sil, who turned pro at the end of last year and is experiencing the KLPGA tour for the first time as a professional this year, said, “I’ve never played match play as a tournament when I was a national team member.” It’s comfortable,” he said. This is the reason why Bang Shin-sil is doing well with two consecutive victories even though he is playing match play for the first time. Bang Sin-sil added, “I can play aggressively, so I can use my strengths well.”
Bang Shin-sil, who has recently gained great popularity for her aggressive play and long hitting power comparable to that of a man, showed another dynamic play by catching a shot eagle on the 4th hole (par 4) in the latter half of the day. Bang Sin-sil hit a driver’s tee shot at this hole of 396 yards the day before, and he showed off an explosive long hit where the ball hit the cart road and went near the green. However, he was in an uncomfortable position for the second shot, and eventually recorded a par on this hole.
Because of the memory of the previous day, Bang Sin-sil caught a 3-wood on the 4th hole that day. Bang Sin-sil, who shot 220m with only a wood tee shot, took a second shot with a 9-iron from the rough with 130m left, and the ball went straight into the cup. This eagle became an important driving force behind the victory in the room.메이저놀이터
Bang Shin-sil, who won the victory with a birdie after a close match against defending champion Jeong-min Hong (21), the toughest opponent the previous day, went all the way to the 18th hole. On the 19th, in the final 3rd round of the group stage, Seo Yeon-jeong (27) is about to play.
Bang Shin-sil said, “If I do my best and play aggressively tomorrow with the same mindset as yesterday and today, there will be good results.”
Also, when asked by reporters if the caddy was the father, Bang Shin-sil replied, “No. A lot of people ask me if I’m my dad,” he said with a laugh, “This is Pro Park Ji-sun, who also works as a senior pro. Starting from last week’s NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship, we will give you a bag,” he explained.
