Seo Yo-seop (27, DB Insurance), who suffered from a long-term slump, has finally signaled a rebound.
Seo Yo-seop recorded 7 birdies (1 bogey) in the first round of the 2023 KPGA Tour Bizplay Electronic Newspaper Open held at Yeongam Cosmos in Jeollanam-do on the 14th and ranked alone with 6 under par and 66 strokes. We are only one stroke behind the leader.

Seo Yo-seop showed off his good fortune by placing 3rd in the DB Insurance Promy Open, the opening game of the season, but later showed signs of falling away from the championship.
In the LX Championship, he suffered a series of disqualifications due to OB, and fell into a swamp of sluggishness as he missed the cut in all four recent competitions. It was clearly a play that was far removed from the career of Seo Yo-seop, who won the KPGA five times in his career.
However, it is Seo Yo-seop who appears to be rising after hitting rock bottom in this competition.
Even though it was Cosmos CC, a course that was somewhat unfamiliar to him, he continued to play calmly, avoiding the swamps of bunkers lurking everywhere, and returned to the form that fans knew by making birdies in five consecutive holes in the second half.
After finishing the first round, Seo Yo-seop honestly said, “I haven’t been able to play everything in general recently,” and then looked back on the past time, saying, “I kept getting penalized in the OB or penalty area, so it was difficult to reduce my score even if I made a lot of birdies.”
He continued, “I had a lot of trouble, but I was able to catch my tee shots little by little and was able to play with relative ease, especially since the course did not have many OB areas,” and added, “It is important to hit the tee shot hard today, but I think I thought a lot about rhythm.” “As he made consecutive birdies, he gained confidence and seemed to have played well as expected,” he said.
Seo Yo-seop is replenishing his confidence in future plays. He said, “After finishing the first half of the year and even in the last competition, his performance was not good, but he plans to improve little by little. “I try not to think about the past,” he said. “There are still a lot of competitions left in the second half of the year, and I will do my best to focus on consistently playing at the top of the rankings. “I think it would be good if this week’s competition becomes a turning point,” he added.
