Who owns the ticket to the Open for 500 million won?

 The 3rd round of the 65th Kolon Korea Open was like watching a match play. Although 65 players fiercely competed for ranking, all eyes were on Han Seung-soo (USA) and Lee Jae-kyung, who played in the last group. Today’s ranking is the same as the previous day. But the gap has narrowed. The final round with the championship cup is expected to be a fierce confrontation. 

Han Seung-soo kept the lead for the third day. In the third round of the tournament held at Woojeong Hills Country Club (par 71) in Cheonan, Chungcheongnam-do on the 24th, he shot a 1-over par 72. He lost one stroke and recorded a total of 6-under-par 207, but the highest spot on the leaderboard was still engraved with Han Seung-soo’s name. 

If Han Seung-soo, who won the first Korean Tour victory at the 2020 LG Signature Players Championship, maintains the lead on the last day, he will rise to the ranks of multiple winners in about three years. 

The winner of this competition will win 500 million won, the highest prize ever won in a domestic competition. You will also receive a ticket to the Open in major tournaments. He is given a 5-year seed for the Korean Tour, so he can continue his stable tour life. 

Lee Jae-kyung can’t give up the privilege that can be called ‘life reversal안전놀이터‘. Lee Jae-kyung, who started the third round with a 3-stroke difference in 2nd place, made 3 bogeys, but caught 4 birdies and shot 1-under 70. With a total of 5 under par 208 strokes, the gap with Han Seung-soo was narrowed by one stroke. 

It is worth going over the come-from-behind victory. A one stroke car can be overturned even in one hole. Lee Jae-kyung, who won the Descente Korea match play competition this year, has an advantage in the final round, which will flow into a one-on-one match play in which two players play as a team. 

Han Seung-soo said, “The weather was hot and there was nothing much different from the first and second rounds, but the 18th hole was a pity.” 

Lee Jae-kyung said, “The flow was good in the first half, but it was difficult after I missed a birdie in the 8th hole.” I will take on the challenge,” he said.

Lee Jun-seok (Australia), the winner of the 2021 Korean Open, starts the final round with a tie for third place (2 under par 211 strokes). Ian Snyman (South Africa) was named in the same position as Lee Jun-seok.

Hwang Jung-gon and Lee Jung-hwan tied for 5th place (1 under par 212 strokes). Defending champion Kim Min-gyu and last year’s runner-up Cho Min-gyu tied for 7th place (even par 213 strokes).
