“There is no problem with jet lag … I am Iron Man”

“Oh~ It’s Gat Seong-jae (God + Im Seong-jae).”

The Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour Woori Finance Championship practice round was held at the Ferrum Club in Yeoju, Gyeonggi-do on the 10th. Seeing Lim Seong-jae (25), who appeared on the KPGA Korean Tour after 3 years and 7 months, the players raised his thumbs up, saying, “God Seong-jae.” Im Seong-jae was also a star among top golfers.

It was 7:18 am, less than half a day after entering the country the afternoon before. Lim Seong-jae appeared on the first hole. He must have been tired due to the long-distance flight and jet lag, but smiles spread across Lim Seong-jae’s face when he met his colleagues who had dreamed of becoming a professional golfer since childhood.

Im Seong-jae’s tee shot, which swung vigorously in the first hole, flew like a clothesline toward the fairway. Colleagues and officials around the teeing ground of hole 1 poured out exclamations, saying, “Awesome” and “As expected, God Seongjae.” His iron shots and putts were also perfect. After hitting the ball about 2m from the side of the hole, he calmly made a birdie putt.

Lim Seong-jae said, “It is true that my body is heavy, but the shot and putt feel are not bad. It was regrettable that I could not participate in the tournament last year, but this year I want to show a great image to Korean golf fans. “I came to Korea on Tuesday (9th) and said, I don’t want to make an excuse that I’m not feeling well. I’ll keep my spirits upright and overcome the jet lag.”

Lim Seong-jae snatched 7 birdies in the remaining 17 holes and showed off his performance, which was unbelievable that he had not adapted to jet lag after arriving the previous afternoon. Colleagues who played the round together also admired Im Seong-jae’s play. Lee Jae-won, Jang Hee-min, and Kim Seung-min said, “It seems that the PGA Tour’s leading players are definitely different. Seong-jae Lim, who is good at approaching and putts around the green while hitting far and straight, is amazing. I learned a lot through today’s practice round.”

Are there any problems with his stamina? Lim Seong-jae said there was no big problem as he is one of the players who participate in the most tournaments every year on the PGA Tour. He said, “I am confident in my stamina, just like my nickname ‘Iron Man’. Also, thinking about meeting Korean golf fans gives me strength,” he said. I will play the game calmly according to the strategy I made while playing the game.”

Colleagues he met after a long time also revealed that he was a great source of strength. Im Seong-jae had a good time with Lee Jae-won, a close friend since he was 10 years old. Lim Seong-jae said with a smile, “It’s the first time I’ve prepared for a tournament with Jae-won since I became a pro. Time passed quickly as I was with my close friend for a practice round. There is definitely a warmth and specialness that can only be felt in Korea.”메이저사이트

Im Seong-jae transformed into a daily teacher during the practice round and gave some tips to his teammates. He asked most about wedge shots around the green. Kim Seung-min said, “I can’t help but admire Lim Seong-jae’s wedge shot. It’s amazing how he can accurately hit the ball in any situation. It was also amazing to freely adjust the distance and spin.” I will make it mine,” he said.

At the official press conference after the practice round, Lim Seong-jae said that he would abandon his greed for his performance and enjoy it. He said, “As much as I can’t say I want to win, I try to have fun. If I succeed in passing the cut, which is my first goal, I plan to work on a strategy to raise my rank on the weekend.” “he raised his voice.
