With 141 yards left, I lightly attached it to the side of the pin 5m and caught a birdie.
Bang Shin-sil hit 297.4 yards on hole 13 (par 5, 545 yards). The two-on ball fell into the bunker and was not properly recovered, so I wrote down the view, but the galleries watching could not keep their mouths shut.
In the 6th hole (par 4, 347 yards), the tee shot, which was aimed at one-on, landed at the entrance of the green. The measured distance reached a whopping 308 yards.
It was regrettable that such a long hit did not lead to a birdie because he was not good at the short game yet.

In the second round that started on the 10th hole, Bang Shin-sil made up for the bogey on the 12th hole (par 3) with a birdie on the 13th hole (par 4), and the bogey on the 15th hole (par 5) with consecutive birdies on the 16th and 17th holes. recovered.
In hole 9 (par 4), Bang Shin-sil missed a 3m birdie putt, then failed to put a one-step par putt and a bogey putt in succession.
