A course that was completely blocked off, Kim Si-woo and Lim Seong-jae ‘Find a strategy in two days’

You have two days to learn everything about Hangzhou West Lake International Golf Course.

The Asian Games Korean men’s and women’s golf teams, including Lim Seong-jae and Kim Si-woo, entered the final battle site, Hangzhou, on the 25th. The national team players who departed from Incheon International Airport on this day each expressed their confidence and pledged, “We will do our best until the end so that we can win the gold medal we want.”

The time given to the national team is very short. All participating players will familiarize themselves with the course through a two-day practice round starting on the 26th, and then compete in both men’s and women’s individual and team competitions for four days starting on the 28th. Since the tournament organizing committee has completely sealed off the tournament venue and has not opened it to the public, all players must quickly understand the course characteristics and find a strategy under the same conditions. However, it seems clear that the Chinese players on the home team would have been given more information and opportunities.

According to the practice round time allocated by the competition organizing committee, the women’s national team, consisting of the ‘high school trio’ Minsol Kim, Jiyu Lim, and Hyeonjo Yoo, will meet the course starting at 7 a.m. The men’s team, which includes world No. 27 Lim Seong-jae and No. 40 Kim Si-woo, who play on the PGA Tour, and amateur powerhouses Cho Woo-young and Jang Yu-bin, will begin the practice round at 11:20 a.m.

The Hangzhou Asian Games are the best opportunity for Korean men’s and women’s golf to repeat the glory of winning both the individual and team events at the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games. Korea has achieved good results in previous Asian Games with 13 gold, 13 silver, and 9 bronze, but has not won a gold medal since winning the women’s individual event (Park Gyeol) in 2014.

Looking at the participating players and the composition of the team competition, nothing has changed other than the information known so far. As for the men’s team, India, which features world No. 142nd ranked Anirban Lahiri and No. 160 Shubhanka Sharma, Thailand, which features Asian Tour powerhouse Pachara Kongwatmai, and Japan, which features strong amateur players, are the targets of caution. As it is composed of the strongest members, the men’s team must play at its best, ‘like a tiger giving all its might when catching a rabbit.’ Seongjae Lim said, “Practice rounds are important. “Even if it doesn’t work out for a day, every stroke is precious, so I have to do my best until the end,” Kim Si-woo said, expressing his determination, “I will lead my younger siblings well and win the gold medal I want.”스포츠토토

The women’s team will be able to win a gold medal if it overcomes the high wall of the home team, China, which includes world No. 1 Yin Luoning, Lin Siyu and Liu Yu, who play on the U.S. LPGA tour.

20 teams registered for the men’s team event and 12 teams registered for the women’s team event. In the men’s team, 4 countries were unable to fill all entries and sent out only 3 players, and in the women’s team, 4 countries were also able to send only 2 players. The individual competition is held in the same 72-hole stroke format as a regular competition, and the men’s team competition is ranked by adding the scores of the top three out of four players in each round, and the women’s team competition by adding the scores of the top two out of three players.
