The third edition of the 2017 KPGA Caido Series takes place this week at the Hyundai Links CC, just outside Taean. The Caido Golden V1 Open has a stronger field than usual than the previous two events, as the Japan Tour is on a break until next month.
The KPGA Tour last visited Hyundai Links CC for its 2015 season ending Caido Championship, in which Taehoon Kim came out on top. He is expected to be one of the main contenders again this week in Taean.
Kim’s ‘Dynamic Crew’ of vocal supporters will undoubtedly be roaming the fairways following him with their yellow umbrellas and Shinan Bank caps! It’s quite a sight if Kim can get a string of birdies going…
Last week’s Descente Matchplay winner Seunghyuk Kim, a Japan Tour regular, will be brimming with confidence after ending his three year drought at the spectacular South Cape Owners Club. Fatigue may be a factor for Kim this week, but his momentum boost should be enough to see him put in another strong performance.
The current Order of Merit winner Jinho Choi crashed out in the first round of the Matchplay for the second year running. However, his past three strokeplay event results read: 3rd, 3rd, 1st. The KPGA number one will start the tournament as the clear favourite, but that doesn’t mean too much in this game!
