Bae Sang-moon and Roh Seung-yeol, who flew to Puerto Rico to secure seed, 2 under par on the first day

Bae Sang-moon (37) and Roh Seung-yeol (32) cruised by writing 2 under par on the first day of the PGA Tour Puerto Rico Open (total prize money: $3.8 million).

In the first round of the tournament held at the Puerto Rico Grand Reserve Golf Club (par 72) on the 3rd (Korean time), Bae Sang-moon tied 5 birdies and 3 bogeys to hit 2 under par 70. Noh Seung-yeol, who finished the game first, recorded 4 birdies and 2 bogeys that day, finishing the first round with a 2 under par 70 strokes.

Carson Young (USA), who hit 9-under-par 63, took the lead alone, while Bae Sang-moon and Noh Seung-yeol tied for 28th place.

This tournament is a so-called B-class tournament in which players who could not participate in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, a special event held during the same period, participated.

While the Arnold Palmer Invitational is held with a total prize pool of $20 million, this tournament has a total prize pool of $3.8 million. Also, the number of FedEx Cup points awarded to the winner is 300 points, which is not many compared to the special competitions where 550 points are awarded. However, it is a stage of opportunity for players who need to maintain the seed and win. If you win, you get a 2-year seed.

Both Bae Sang-moon and Roh Seung-yeol have lost their right to participate in the PGA Tour this season and are unable to perform normal tour activities. As a waiting list, he only participates in tournaments where a large number of top-ranked players are absent or tournaments that give the winner the right to participate because of his experience in winning. 먹튀검증

It is also urgent to raise the FedEx points ranking this season. If you do not finish in the top 125, you are not guaranteed a seed for the next season. Currently, Noh Seung-yeol is ranked 148th and Bae Sang-moon is 207th.

Bae Sang-moon, who started from the 10th hole (par 4), raised the mood by catching a birdie on the 11th hole (par 3). However, after that, he only added a birdie on the 15th hole (par 5) and bogeyed on the 14th (par 4) and 16th holes (par 3), finishing the first half with an even par.

Bae Sang-moon, who needed more birdies to jump up the rankings, failed to change the atmosphere in the second half as he bogeyed on hole 2 (par 5), where he had to reduce the number of strokes.

Fortunately, he succeeded in bouncing back with a birdie straight from hole 3 (par 4), cutting off the bad flow in the middle of the game. Afterwards, Bae Sang-moon, who found stability, made a par streak to the 7th hole, followed by consecutive birdies on the 8th (par 3) and 9th holes (par 4), finishing the first round with 2 under par.

Noh Seung-yeol also started from the 10th hole, made birdies on the 10th, 15th, 18th, and 9th holes, and wrote bogeys on the 5th and 13th holes to finish the game with a 2-under-par 70.

Kang Seong-hoon finished the first round with a 1-over par of 73 for a tie for 78th place, and Choi Kyung-ju finished the first round with a 3-over par of 75 for a tie for 96th place.
