The second tournament of the KPGA Caido Series takes place this week at the very picturesque and challenging Jangsu Golf Club.
The course looks like it will be very much a physical as well as mental challenge this week. Experienced hikers may hold the advantage…current form could possibly go out the window, as Jangsu G.C. looks like quite the opposite to SKY72- last week’s SK Telecom Open venue.
The inaugural Caido Dream Open will be headlined by last week’s winner Jinho Choi, who will be hoping to build on this victory and take another step towards the race for a full 2018 European Tour card.
With the Korea Open being held next week, these few weeks could be crucial come the end of the season. Choi’s current closest rival has Sanghee Lee has opted to play at the Mizuno Open Golf Championship in Japan this week, giving Choi the opportunity to capitalize on Lee’s absence. But this week is certainly is not a formality for Choi.
Sengyong Kim and Dongseop Maeng will tee it up this week and with the duo both securing their first KPGA titles this season, they cannot be ruled out of contention this week. Maeng is very much an attacking player, who has the potential to go very low on any day, but also that can backfire on him too…
Rounds of 66 and 68 over the weekend at the SK Telecom secured Minkyu Han a T-6th finish. That confidence boosting couple of impressive rounds may roll over to this week, in a much weaker field than SKY72.
As stated already, there’s no doubt that this week is a golden opportunity for Jinho Choi to claim back to back victories for the first time in his career. All will be revealed soon…
