It took an incredible third shot from Seung Hyuk Kim in a play-off to claim the KPGA Descente Matchplay over Junghwan Lee. Kim almost holed out for eagle, as the ball spun slowly back to the hole. Although, it came within inches of dropping, Kim’s tap in birdie was enough to secure him his first victory in three years.
The pair could not be separated after 18 holes, although Kim was 2UP with six to play, he couldn’t close it out. Kim was probably more satisfiedt to win this way anyway!
It’s been a frustrating few years for Kim since his impressive trio of wins and five other top ten finishes in 2014. This victory could be the catalyst he needs to find that blistering form again.
Junghwan Lee was arguably the underdog today, in fact he was probably the underdog for most of the week, until his impressive performances let the others know he wasn’t just playing to make up the numbers. His second place finish topped his T-5th at the Caido Dream Open and T-8th at the SK Telekom Open.
