Jeong Do-won (28), a member of Srixon, won the 7th KPGA Srixon Tour Tournament (total prize money of 80 million won) held at the Solago Country Club Lagos Course (par 72, 7290 yards) in Taean, Chungcheongnam-do for two days from the 18th. won Jeong Do-won, who changed 7 birdies and 1 bogey on the first day and tied for 4th place by 1 stroke, reduced 5 more strokes in the final round to finish with 12 under par 132 strokes, tied with Bae Yun-ho (30).
In the first overtime on the 13th hole (par 5), Jeong Do-won, who was unable to decide whether he was superior or inferior with a par, succeeded in making a par save without a mistake in the second overtime on the 14th hole (par 4) and won the championship. It was his second personal victory after winning the opening match of the Srixon Tour last year. “I am happy to win the Srixon Tour for the second consecutive season. I would like to express my gratitude to my father, my uncle, my beloved girlfriend, and coach Cho Min-gyu for their generous support.”
“The course was in really good condition,” he said. The green was clean, so I putt well for two days. After his professional debut, he achieved both passing and winning the KPGA Korean Tour Qualifying Test (QT) in overtime. I was very nervous today, but I overcame it based on the experience of not losing.”
After entering KPGA Pro in 2012 and KPGA Tour Pro in 2014, respectively, he debuted on the Korean Tour in 2015 after passing the QT senior pass in 2014. However, he did not achieve outstanding results and failed to maintain the seed, and after being discharged from the military, he was active in the ‘PGA Tour China’ for about two years from 2019 to 2020.
Jeong Do-won, who had been taking lessons while experiencing driver ips and giving up his tour life for a while, signaled a comeback by winning the ‘KPGA Srixon Tour 1st Tournament’ last year. He said, “He won last year and thought, ‘I have to do better,’ and he wanted to be perfect. As a result, I was very nervous, and it is true that I did not have a good feeling at the beginning of the season,” said Jung Do-won, who expressed regret, “I improved my stamina while continuing weight training. Compared to before, his swing balance has also improved a lot. He promised that he will return to the Korean Tour stage with steady performances this year.”
The Srixon Tour, which opened with two consecutive amateur victories, has won two consecutive championships since Kim Yong-tae won the third tournament, followed by Song Jae-il, and Seo Jung-min followed by Jeong Do-won. Song Jae-il, who won the championship in the 4th and 5th, is monopolizing the Srixon points and 1st place in prize money.
The KPGA Srixon Tour started title sponsorship in early 2020, in which Srixon supports all 20 tournaments in the second part tour, and has been sponsoring it for the fourth year until this year.
It is driving the wind with a big investment that strengthens player sponsorship and service every year. This year, the tour van is always in operation to improve the performance of players in all competitions from the first competition, and a dedicated Srixon tour fitter is hired to perform a precise analysis of the players’ swing conditions and, if necessary, club fitting to show the best performance. We are working hard on player management, such as conducting analysis.
In addition, the KPGA Srixon Tour relayed all tournaments and installed hole boards and live scoring systems on the course in all tournaments so that matches can be held in an environment closer to the Korean Tour, which is the first section tour, even though it is a second-part tour.
This year is the last year as a title sponsor for the Srixon Tour. Dunlop Sports Korea expanded the scale of the tour with a big investment, and its players won the relay championship, proving the adage that ‘the most reliable training is investment’. Attention is focusing on whether the Korea Professional Golf Association (KPGA), which is putting its life and death on the globalization of the tour and expanding its base, is aware of its gratitude.
