On the afternoon of the 14th, the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Tour Korean Tour Woori Financial Championship was held at the par-5 12th hole at Ferrum CC (par 72, 7232 yards) in Yeoju-si, Gyeonggi-do.
This is because the second shot by Lim Seong-jae (25), who was 3 behind the lead, landed at the 3m mark of the hole, and the eagle putt that followed was sucked into the hole cup.
In the 12th hole, Lim Seong-jae’s tee shot was located in the rough area where the pin was left 250m away. He didn’t get off to a good start. Im Seong-jae, who was contemplating between a hybrid and a wood for his next shot, eventually chose the 3-wood. The ball that landed in front of the green rolled smoothly to a distance of 3m in the hole.
Lim Seong-jae made a successful eagle by showing off his well-trained putting ability on the PGA Tour.
With an eagle on the 12th hole, Lim Seong-jae tied for second place, one stroke behind Lee Jun-seok (35), who was leading at the time. Im Seong-jae soon jumped to the joint lead with a successful birdie on the 13th hole (par 4).

The championship competition between Lim Seong-jae and Lee Jun-seok was decided on the last 18th hole (par 5).
The 18th hole was also in a disadvantageous situation than Lee Jun-seok, who landed the ball on the green as Lim Seong-jae’s second shot fell into the bunker.
Lim Seong-jae calmly hit a bunker shot and hit the ball to the 1.5m mark of the hole. However, there was Lee Jun-seok’s third ball closer.
This time, Im Seong-jae’s putting went right to the hole cup. It was a putt that revealed the face of a top player with two wins on the PGA Tour. However, perhaps because he was conscious of Im Seong-jae’s birdie, the ball that left Lee Jun-seok’s putter ignored the hole cup.
