‘Tank’ Choi Kyung-ju breaks the record for the most cuts after a forced march

“Tank fighting!”

These are the voices of support from the bleachers at the 18th hole during the second round of the SK Telecom Open held at the Pinx Golf Club in Seogwipo, Jeju on the 19th. Korean men’s golf legend Choi Gyeong-ju (53), nicknamed ‘Tank’, succeeded in passing the 20th cut of his personal career at the SK Telecom Open.

On this day, Choi Gyeong-ju recorded a total of 1 under par 141 in the first and second rounds after a forced march through 25 holes, including the remaining 7 holes in the first round and 18 holes in the second round. Although the second round of the tournament was postponed to sunset after 7:36 p.m., Choi Kyung-joo succeeded in advancing to the final round by far exceeding the 2-over par, the expected cut-off standard.

After the game, Choi Kyung-ju said, “I did not perfectly adapt to the jet lag, but I did my best in each hole.”메이저놀이터
