“If I’m happy with my play, the score will follow” Park leads 6-under on day one of iMBank Open
Park Eun-shin (Hana Financial Group) took a one-shot lead after the first day of the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour’s iMBank Open ($500 million purse).
Park shot a bogey-free 6-under 65 in the first round of the tournament at Farmy Hills Country Club (Par 71, 7215 yards) in Chilgok-gun, North Gyeongsang Province on Monday.
Park topped the leaderboard by one stroke over the next three players, including Lee Soo-min (Woori Financial Group), Kim Min-kyu (CJ), and Hong Soon-sang (Danu). Park has a chance to make it three wins in 10 months after winning the Golf Zone-Doray Open in November last year.
Park has been on a roll this year with six top-10 finishes, including her first victory in 13 years at the Descente Korea Munsingwear Match Play in May, and she is now up to two wins in six months.
At the Bizplay Electronics Open, which concluded on April 24, Park shot 7-under-par on the first day to share the lead, but her momentum faded after the second day’s play was canceled and the third day’s play was suspended and pushed back a day to finish tied for ninth.
Park said, “Farmy Hills is not difficult. It’s important not to make mistakes and to play the way you want to play,” Park said. “The goal is to complete my game regardless of my score,” she said. “At the end of the tournament, if I had the shots and performance I wanted, I’m satisfied regardless of my ranking. If you play well, the results will follow,” he added.먹튀검증

Go Gun-taek (Daebo Construction), who is seeking his fourth win of the season after 31 years since his last in 1992, is tied for 11th with a 3-under 68. Kim Chan-woo (I.K Buddy Plus), who earned his first career victory at the Bizplay Electronics Open, which was shortened to 36 holes, was also tied for 11th at 3-under 68. Kim Han-byul (SK Telecom), the runner-up in the event for the second consecutive year, is tied for 21st at 2-under 69, while defending champion Moon Do-yup (DB Insurance) is tied for 39th at 1-under 70.
