he 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games Golf Tournament will open for four days from the 28th at the West Lake International Golf Course in Hangzhou, China.
Golf has a total of four gold medals in the men's and women's individual team events, with up to four men's and three women's respective countries, and individual winners are determined through 72 hole stroke plays.
For the team event, the ranking is determined by the country's combined score, excluding the lowest score for each round.
In this tournament, the golf team is aiming to win all categories.
Korea won four gold medals in Doha in 2006 and Guangzhou in 2010 for the second consecutive year.
However, Park Gyeol won only one gold medal and three silver medals in the women's individual competition at the 2014 Incheon Games at home, and five years ago at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games, she had the worst performance with two silver medals and one bronze medal.

The appearance of professional players has become more colorful as they are allowed to participate in this tournament.
In particular, in the case of men's golf, Lim Sung-jae (25) and Kim Si-woo (28, CJ), who are active on the PGA Tour, the world's best stage, are expected to participate.
Im Sung-jae did not win this season, but he has consistently been at the top of the rankings with two wins in his career, and Kim Si-woo won his fourth career PGA Tour victory in the final round of PGA Tour playoffs for five consecutive years, and also won the Sony Open in January this year.
According to the world ranking, Im Sung-jae is ranked 27th among the men's players, and Kim Si-woo is ranked 1st and 2nd with 40th, while Anivan Lahiri (India), who plays for LIV Golf, and Pachara Khongwatmai (Thailand), who finished second at the Shinhan East Sea Open on the Korean Tour this month, are considered competitors.
Two amateurs, Cho Woo-young (22) and Jang Yoo-bin (21), are also formidable. Those who had already represented the national team since they were young delayed their professional transition to participate in the Asian Games.
It is safe to say that he is already a professional. He frequently appeared on the Korean PGA Tour this season as an invited player, and both won one win each, earning the reputation of being a "professionals."
