(SEOUL (Yonhap) By Kwon Hoon Kwon, a reporter for the PGA Tour, said that In-Kyung Kim, 35, the champion of the British Women’s Open, a major on the U.S. Women’s Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour, has advised Lee Kyung-hoon on how to play the links course in his home country.
In an interview with the PGA Tour on Tuesday (June 20), a day before the start of the tournament, Lee revealed that he received a special “tutoring session” from Kim at Royal Liverpool Golf Club in England, where the tournament is being held.
“She has more experience than I do,” Lee said, “and she followed me around during my practice rounds and gave me a lot of advice on the course and on the greens.”
Kim, who has seven career victories on the LPGA Tour, won the 2017 British Women’s Open at King’s Barnes Golf Links in Scotland.
Kim In-Kyung met up with her good friend Lee Kyung-hoon at Royal Liverpool Golf Club, where the tournament is being held ahead of the LPGA Tour’s Amundi Evian Championship, which begins on July 27 in France.
In-Kyung Kim had been telling him for a while that he should practice with him at the Open if he ever got the chance.
“He gave me some simple tips on where to drop the ball on the green, how to control the speed of my putts, and some strategic things like course management,” says Lee. “He also told me that chipping is more effective than putting from certain positions, which is really helpful,” he explains.
“There’s a lot of pressure and nerves during a major, but this time I didn’t feel as nervous because I practiced with her,” he said, adding, “She’s going to stay here all week and give me advice.”
“I think it’s going to be important to adapt to the wind. I don’t think there are many holes where you can hold the driver, and it will be important to play the course strategically, so I think it’s a challenging course where iron shots are even more important.” “In my last tournament (Genesis Scottish Open), I struggled a bit with the wind. Some of my putts weren’t quite right in the windy conditions. So this week I’m going to focus a little bit more on my putts.”
“I also realized that you need to be patient in these conditions. If I made a bogey, I tried to make up for it with a birdie, and I think that put me in a more difficult situation,” he said. “You have to be patient and focus on your game, and then try to make birdies on the holes where you have a chance. I realized that I needed to be more strategic.”
“It’s not my first major, but I feel like it’s my first major,” said Ahn, who tied for third at the Genesis Scottish Open to earn a last-minute spot in the field. It’s kind of like a bonus,” he said, adding, “Majors attract the best players and everyone wants to play. I hope to play in good form this week and continue my good results.”
“I feel like my game has improved a lot. I’m in a safe position (to secure a tour card), so I’m happy to have accomplished my primary goal for the season,” said Ahn. “But I also want to do better. I think if you perform consistently in big tournaments, the rankings will follow.”
“I think it’s more about whether I’m playing well enough,” Ahn said, “My final goal is to make sure that I’m swinging well and playing well, not the ranking.” He also evaluated his performance this year.
“For this tournament, I want to make the cut first and try to do what I can on the weekend,” said Ahn. “The links course is difficult, the lies are different than usual and the bounce is different. So I just have to focus on my swing and hope that everything comes together as well as it did last Thursday. If that happens, I think the weekend will be a little easier. But then again, it could be the other way around in golf. 카지노사이트 You just have to do your best to prepare,” he added.
