Lim Seong-jae tied for 4th in the 3rd round of the Woori Financial Championship (total prize money of 1.5 billion won).
In the 3rd round of the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour Woori Financial Championship held at the Ferrum Club (par 72) in Yeoju-si, Gyeonggi-do on the 13th, Lim Seong-jae reduced 2 strokes by combining 5 birdies, 1 bogey and 1 double bogey.
Lim Seong-jae, who recorded an interim스포츠토토 total of 6 under par and 210 strokes, was tied for 4th place. There is a slight difference in the number of strokes, with a 5-stroke gap from Choi Jin-ho, who is the sole leader.
In the 3rd hole (par 3), Lim Seong-jae, who missed the tee shot and put it on the green after the third time, committed a painful double bogey. However, he escaped the crisis by making consecutive birdies on holes 4 (par 4) and 5 (par 5).
Im Seong-jae, who added a birdie in hole 9 (par 5), missed a par putt in hole 10 (par 4) and made another bogey, but blocked the flow with consecutive birdies in holes 12 and 13. However, he could not close the gap with the lead as he could not make any more birdies on the remaining holes.
Lim Seong-jae said, “It was very disappointing to record a double bogey on the 3rd hole, but I was able to change the mood by catching a birdie in a row. After that, I was very sorry to see the 10th hole while maintaining an under par score. It is regrettable that I did not have many birdie chances. I am still adjusting to the Korean turf. It’s hard to do,” he laughed.
“I have a difference in strokes from the current lead, but I will try to reduce the number of strokes tomorrow. The Ferrum Club has a difficult pin position and it’s difficult to get a birdie if you can’t keep the fairway. “He promised.
Choi Jin-ho took the lead with an interim total of 11-under-par 205 strokes, while Yoon Sang-pil rose to second place with a 10-under-par 206 strokes. Han Seung-soo finished third with a 7-under par of 209, and Choi Jin-ho, Yoon Sang-pil and Han Seung-soo will play in the championship group.
