In the second round of the tournament held at the Black Stone Golf Club (par 72) in Icheon, Gyeonggi Province on the 26th, Kim Min-soo scored 3 under par 69 with 5 birdies and 2 bogeys.

Kim Min-soo, who recorded 7 under par 137 strokes until the second round, was tied for the lead with Lee Jung-hwan. Lee Jung-hwan tied 7 birdies and 1 bogey that day and recorded a 6 under par 66.

Kim Min-soo is the strongest player in screen golf who has won 10 times in total on the screen golf tour GTOUR. However, he has never reached the top of the Korean Tour yet. Debuting on the Korean Tour in 2012, his best result was a tie for 4th at the 2021 Hyundai Marine & Fire Insurance Choi Gyeong-ju Invitational.

Kim Min-soo, who was eliminated from the cut in all four tournaments he participated in earlier this season, aims for his first win in this tournament in the 12th year of his debut.

In an interview after the game, Kim Min-soo said, “Screen golf can be calculated accurately because variables such as distance and wind speed come out as numbers. The actual field is difficult because there are too many variables, but the field competition is more fun and greedy than the screen.”

Kim Min-soo, who recorded 7 under par for two days at the Black Stone Golf Course, where the course is so difficult that one can lose many strokes at once, said, “I felt very good about my shot today.” At the same time, he said, “If I play the remaining two days like today, I will be able to finish with good grades.”

His wife, Ara Ryu, a regular member of the Korea Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) tour, carries Kim Min-soo’s bag and challenges the winning team. Kim Min-soo said, “I live a tour life with the feeling of traveling with his wife. He feels comfortable on the course,” he said.

He said, “It is expected that the pin position will become more difficult from the third round. I will try to put a lot of balls on the green like in the 1st and 2nd rounds. I am trying to see the game in a way that avoids approach shots as much as possible.”

Lee Jung-hwan, who was co-leader with Kim Min-soo, said, “It’s been three years since I returned from the military, and I’ve had a lot of problems with my swing. He will be able to win as long as he plays my play,” he showed confidence.

Bae Yong-joon (23) and Yeom Seo-hyeon (32) recorded 5-under par and tied for 3rd place, 2 strokes behind the leader, while Kim Min-gyu (23), Kim Dong-min (25), and Korean-Canadian Lee Tae-hoon (23) tied for 5th place with 4-under par. .

Jeong Chan-min (24), who won the GS Caltex Maekyung Open earlier this month, tied for 8th with a 3 under par.
