Wang Jung-hoon ‘starts at 4 under par’… Balimaki ‘8 under par leader’
This is a decent start for Wang Jeong-hun.
In the first round of the DP World Tour (formerly European Tour) Thailand Classic (total prize money of 2 million dollars) held at the Amata Spring Country Club (par 72, 7505 yards) in Chonburi, Bangkok, Thailand on the 16th, Wang Jeong-hun scored 4 under par 68 to tie for 17th place. Herpes Sami Balimaki (Finland) and Martin Simonsen (Denmark) tied for the lead (8 under par, 64 strokes), and Yannick Paul (Germany) tied for third place (7 under par, 65 strokes).
Wang Jeong-hoon tied 2 eagles, 5 birdies and 5 bogeys. Hole 1 (par 4) birdie, hole 2 (par 5) eagle, hole 6 (par 4) birdie, etc. The early drive to reduce 4 strokes stood out. Holes 7 to 9 were shaken by three consecutive bogeys, but the birdie on hole 10 (par 4), the eagle on hole 11 (par 5), and the birdie on hole 12 (par 4) made a splash. After consecutive bogeys on holes 13 and 14, the damage was reduced with a birdie on hole 15 (par 5). It is a four-stroke gap from the leader, and it is a position where you can compete for the championship. 메이저놀이터
