No. 1′ Jang Yu-bin tries his first win of the season at KB Financial Live Championship

Jang Yu-bin (22, Shinhan Financial Group), the No. 1 player in Genesis points of the Korea Professional Golfers’ Association (KPGA) Tour this season, will hunt for his first win of the season.

The KPGA Tour KB Financial Live Championship (total prize money of 700 million won) will be held at Blackstone GC (par 72, 7270 yards) in Icheon, Gyeonggi Province for four days from the 23rd.

At the SK Telecom Open last week, Jang ranked 13th, beating Lee Jung-hwan of Woori Financial Group to the second place and ranking No. 1 in Genesis Point of this season. Jang has not won any of the six competitions he participated in, but he has performed very evenly.
There have been four “Top 10” awards, including the runner-up at the KPGA Classic, the 4th place at the DB Insurance Promy Open, the joint 4th place at the GS Caltex Maegyeong Open, and the “PGA Founders Cup with Hanmaek CC” joint 6th place.

She ranks first in all other categories. She ranks first in the average driving distance category, which is the symbol of the KPGA tour, with 312.69 yards, and 69.7 pars, ranking third in the average par category, with 24.44 percent of birdies, and fifth in average putts (1.736GIR).

“It’s still early in the season, so I don’t care much about the ranking. As Jang said, “My goal this year is to win the Grand Prix de Genesis,” he seems to be focusing on getting good results in every single competition. “In fact, performance without ups and downs is important, but I want to achieve my first win of this season as soon as possible,” he said.

A total of 144 players including Jang will participate in this year’s event. defending champion Kim Dong-min (26, NH Nonghyup Bank), who came from behind to win by a five-shot margin at last year’s event, is aiming for his first two consecutive championships and second consecutive wins this year.

Lee Jung-hwan (33), who is ranking second in Genesis points, will also seek his first win of this season. Kim Hong-taek (31, Volvik), Lee Seung-taek (29), and Park Sang-hyun (41, Dong-A Pharmaceutical) are also on the list of participants.

For the first time in Korea, the program will continue to provide support for caddies (500,000 won). A 300,000 won (322 U.S. dollars) subsidy for players who failed to make the cut will also be provided. The Charity Hold-in-One Program, a donation program created with players, will also be operated.메이저 토토사이트
