South Korea has booked its place in the men’s golf team event at the 19th Hangzhou Asian Games.

The Korean team of Lim Sung-jae, Kim Si-woo (CJ), Cho Woo-young and Jang Yubin (Korea Gymnastics) shot a 58-under par 590 in the third round of the tournament at the West Lake International Golf Course (par-72) in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China, on Tuesday and are 14 strokes ahead of second-place Thailand and Hong Kong (both 604), barring any upsets in the final round.

The team event at the Asian Games combines the top three scores of the four players. A gold medal for South Korea in the team event would mark a return to the top of the standings after a 13-year absence following the 2010 Guangzhou Games.먹튀검증
