In an interview after the second round that day, Kim Woo-hyun expressed his motivation, saying, “I feel at ease when I come to this area, even though it’s not my hometown. I achieved all three wins in my 20s, and now that I’m in my 30s, it’s time to win.”

He played without bogeys in both the first and second rounds and said, “I am very satisfied with the lack of bogeys.” He added, “My tee shot accuracy has improved and my short game is good, which is why I am performing consistently early in the season.”

Kim Woo-hyun, who tied for 12th at the Woori Financial Championship in April and tied for 16th at the GS Caltex Maekyung Open earlier this month, added, “The distance decreased by about 5 meters, but I tried to keep the distance constant and improve the accuracy of my shots.”

Lim Ye-taek, who is in second place by one point, is a player strong in the modified Stableford method.

Lim Ye-taek, who added 13 points with 7 birdies and 1 bogey that day, said, “I don’t know if this type of competition suits me well,” and added, “I am surprised that I got good results by doing what I normally do rather than being aggressive because it is a modified Stableford type competition.” He said.

Lim Ye-taek, who is trying to win his first KPGA Tour title, said, “I am in good condition and my shots and putts are good, so I think I am performing well.” He said, “There is rain in the forecast for the third round, but since I am fighting against the wind, I will check the direction and strength carefully before playing.” did. 섯다
