Song Jae-il wins 2nd KPGA Srixon Tour… First championship in 3 years

Song Jae-il (25, Srixon) has achieved two victories in the Korea Professional Golf Association (KPGA) Srixon Tour (second division).

At the Jeonju and Iksan courses (par 71, 7143 yards) at Gunsan Country Club in Jeollabuk-do, the 2023 KPGA Srixon Tour 4th tournament was held on the 12th and 13th with a total prize of 80 million won.

Song Jae-il won the championship prize money of 16 million won with a final total of 11 under par and 131 strokes. It is the first time since the 4th tournament in 2020 that it has reached the top of the KPGA Srixon Tour.

On the first day of the 2023 Srixon Tour 4th tournament, Song Jae-il pulled out 8 birdies and took the lead by one stroke with an 8 under par 63 strokes. On the final day, he tied 4 birdies and 1 bogey to reduce 3 strokes, beating the 2nd place group by 2 strokes and winning the championship.

Song Jae-il said, “I am happy to win after a long time. I would like to thank his parents and the Srixon officials who always support him like family. In fact, at the beginning of the final round, he struggled because his tee shot was unstable바카라사이트. Fortunately, the more he played the game, the more stable he was, and the fact that he showed concentration until the end was the driving force behind the victory.”

Song Jae-il, who joined the KPGA in July 2015, obtained qualification as a tour pro in October of that year. In the 2020 Srixon Tour, with 1 win in 8 appearances and 4 entries in the TOP10, he ranked 3rd in the target points and qualified for the 2021 Korean Tour (1st division).

In the 2021 Korean Tour, he participated in 16 tournaments and passed the 8th cut, including a tie for 17th at the 37th Shinhan Donghae Open, but lost the seed. The 2022 season, which returned to the Srixon Tour, entered the TOP 10 four times, including one runner-up.

Song Jae-il said, “I still have a lot of regret because I couldn’t get good grades in the first year of Part 1. His goal is to return to the Korean Tour by consistently performing on the Srixon Tour this year.”

Park Chan-young (25), Andy Kang (24, USA), and Korean New Zealand female Jin (23) finished the 2023 KPGA Srixon Tour 4th tournament with a tie for second place with a final total of 9 under par and 133 strokes.

Hangzhou Asian Games national team member Cho Woo-young (22, Woori Financial Group) tied for 8th place with a final total of 7 under par, 135 strokes, recording the best performance among amateur players who participated in the 4th Srixon Tour.

Cho Woo-young is on the top of the 2023 KPGA Srixon Tour target point thanks to his victories in the last two tournaments. The number one prize money this season is Song Jae-il.
