KPGA grand prize winner Ham Jeong-woo hopes for a soft landing at the Korn Ferry Tour Passed the cut 2 times in a row
Ham Jeong-woo takes a tee shot at the Panama Championship.
Ham Jeong-woo, last year's Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour grand prize winner, saw hope for a soft landing in the Korn Ferry Tour, the second division tour of the PGA of America.
Ham Jeong-woo hit an even par 70 strokes in the final round of the Korn Ferry Tour Panama Championship held at the Panama City Club (par 70) in Panama on the 5th (Korean time) and tied for 36th place with a total of 2 over par 282 strokes for 4 rounds.
Ham Jeong-woo, who tied for 57th at the Great Abaco Classic in the Bahamas, which ended on the 26th of last month, failed to enter the top rankings, but appears to be adapting quickly to the Korn Ferry Tour by passing the cut in two consecutive competitions.
Ham Jeong-woo, who received the KPGA Tour Genesis Grand Prize last year, took the PGA Tour Qualifying School to achieve his dream of advancing to the PGA Tour, and although he tied for 45th place, he earned the right to participate in the Korn Ferry Tour.
Although he has played three competitions and passed the cut twice, his highest ranking is tied for 36th place, Ham Jeong-woo said, "I am gradually adapting to the new course and environment. Although I did not enter the top ranks, I feel like my skills are gradually improving." He added, "I am confident." He expressed confidence, saying, “I’m on the rise, so I’ll achieve better results in the next competition.”
The winner was Isaiah Salinda (USA).
On this day, Salinda hit 5 under par 65 strokes and achieved a complete victory with a total of 12 under par 268 strokes, beating the three players tied for second place by 8 strokes.
