Strong winds of up to 11 m/s continued to blow at the Gaya Country Club, where the tournament was held, from the day before until today. The flagpoles swayed wildly, and the collars of the players flew around. The galleries were also shivering in the cold.
In strong winds, experience is more important than anything else. This is because Choilyu must know how to use the wind.
This is because Lee So-mi, who has won five times on the Korean Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) tour, won three victories at a golf course in Jeju Island, where the wind is strong. In addition, there is a career in winning in Yeongam, Jeonnam, where winds are as strong as Jeju Island. The strong wind is not a bad thing for Lee So-mi, but a good thing.스포츠토토
To beat the wind, the trajectory must be low. You need to be able to hit strong, low-flying shots well to overcome the wind. This is because the higher the trajectory, the greater the influence of the wind. She’s good at sending the ball low, and she knows how to play in the wind. She also has great confidence that she can handle the wind well.
In the second round of the KLPGA Tour Nexen Saint Nine Masters (total prize money of 800 million won) held on the 22nd at Gimhae Gaya Country Club in Gyeongnam, Lee So-mi shot a 4-under-par 68 to take the lead with an interim total of 7-under-par 137.
Somi Lee pulled out 7 of her birdies in strong winds.
Lee So-mi said, “It is important to believe in my shots and putts even in the wind. You have to know how to ride the wind, and if it blows too hard, you have to know how to wait and hit. Putts also ride the wind, so you have to take into account the wind on the green.” He also revealed the secret to getting good grades.
Since the final round is still ahead, he made it clear that he would not let go of the tension until the end, saying, “I am grateful for passing the cut rather than greedy for winning, and I will use it as an opportunity to play as I practiced and find a point to improve.”
On the other hand, Kim Min-byeol, who leads the Rookie of the Year race, endured well with 3 birdies and 3 bogeys, and faced the final round in 3rd place (4 under par 140 strokes), 3 strokes behind Lee So-mi. Jeong Yeon-ju, who took the lead by hitting a 5-under-par 65 on the first day, lost 5 strokes and was virtually out of the race for the title. Kim Min-byeol and Hwang Yoo-min, who are considered strong candidates for the rookie of the year, also performed sluggishly with a 5-over-par 77.
