Rookie long hitter Bang Shin-sil on being tied for the lead… “It’s more important to do your best than to think about winning”

“I’ll do my best until the end rather than winning.”
Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour ‘rookie long hitter’ Bang Shin-sil, 19, was cautious about her chances of winning for the third time in as many months.

Bang carded five birdies and two bogeys for a 3-under 69 on the second day of the KLPGA Tour’s 11th E1 Charity Open ($900,000) at Seongmunan Country Club (par-72, 6,602 yards) in Wonju, Gangwon Province on Sunday.

With a two-day total of 7-under par 137, Bang is tied for the lead with Park Ji-young and Kim Hee-ji.
Tour rookie Bang has been in contention for the title twice, finishing fourth at the KLPGA Championship in late April and third at the NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship two weeks ago, but her dreams of a first regular tour victory will have to wait.

“In the first half, I made some mistakes off the tee and couldn’t keep the fairway,” Bang said in an interview after the second round, “but in the second half, my putter fell well and I was able to cut my stroke count a little bit.”

Starting on the 10th hole (par-4), Bang made a 10-meter birdie putt on the 1st hole (par-4) and birdied the 2nd hole (par-4) to build momentum with three consecutive birdies, but missed a 40-centimeter par putt on the 3rd hole (par-4).

“Then it started to rain and I lost my concentration, which was disappointing,” Bang said.

Heading into his third tournament in as many months, Bang appeared to be worried about the pressure of winning, saying, “I’m not thinking about winning,” and “I’ll do my best until the end.”

However, Bang Shin-shil said, “I will not miss the opportunity when it comes,” and said, “I think the previous two championship group matches were due to psychological pressure and inexperience.” He distinguished ‘Samsepan’.

“Now that I’ve played in the Champion Group twice, I think I’ll be able to relax a little bit,” said Bang, who stands at 173 centimeters tall and is known for his cool long shots. “The support of the fans is also a big help on the course,” he added, asking for their support on the final day.메이저놀이터

After complaining of a cold the day before, he played with a brace on his right wrist.

“It was a little uncomfortable (the wrist) because I didn’t sleep well,” Bang said, revealing his blueprint for his first victory, adding, “It will be important to make a good second shot tomorrow and send the ball to a good place to putt.”
