Eunshin Park took full advantage of his invite to tee it up at the Honma Tour World Cup in Nagoya this week. Rounds of 66, 70, 66, 66 secured Park a T-6th finish, which will give him the opportunity to return to play The Bridgestone Open in two weeks.
Park has enjoyed a very consistent season on the KPGA Tour with six top tens, three of them being third place finishes. It seems like a victory for the 27 year old is not too far away. Having completed his military service last year, Park is now free to focus fully on his golfing career, unlike many others on the KPGA Tour. He is definitely one to watch out for in the near future.
Veteran I.J. Jang finished alongside Park, to complete a hat-trick of top ten finishes in his past three events. Jang is currently enjoying his best run of form since he won The Crowns in 2015. He will hope that continues at next week’s Japan Open Championship.
Inhoi Hur also grabbed a top 10 finish, after a final round 66 elevated him up the leaderboard to T-10th, as his number one fan Yook was once again not far from his side, although she wasn’t caddying this time around…
In form Hyun Woo Ryu added another satisfactory week to his season, by finishing alongside Hur in T-10th. Overall, from a Korean perspective, it was a very positive week.
Next up is the Japan Open Championship. K.T. Kim was the last Korean to lift this trophy back in 2010, with the amateur title won by a then 18 year old Hideki Matsuyama…
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.
