Having picked up a hand injury on the 17th while putting, Kang was able to maintain his two shot lead, after openly roaring in pain once he hit his wayward tee shot on the 18th. Luck was on Kang’s side as his ball bounced back into play, from being out of bounds and ended up on the short grass.
Kang was able to par the 18th and claim a three shot victory over his playing partner Jaemin Hwang, who had held a one shot lead at the start of the day.
Kang’s previous win came at the 2013 Happiness Gwangju Bank Open, but he had been in good form leading up to this week, so the victory was not a huge surprise. Nice outfit Kyungnam!
First up, I suppose I better say hello and thank you for visiting my website, whoever you are. I teach, I write, I caddy, I write, I travel, I write. Mostly, about golf if that interests you. Usually interviews for various publications and blog about my caddy adventures.
