Seo Yo-seop’s 6-win challenge with ‘Wire to Wire’…”Repay the sponsors with victory”

Seo Yo-seop, who won 5 wins on the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour, is stepping up to win the ‘Wire Tour Wire’ in a tournament hosted by his sponsor. 

Seo Yo-seop made 4 birdies without bogey in the 3rd round of the 18th DB Insurance Promy Open (total prize money of 700 million won), the KPGA Korean Tour 2023 season opener held at the Old Course (par 72) at Ravievelle Country Club in Chuncheon, Gangwon-do on the 15th. He hit a 4-under-par 68.

Seo Yo-seop, who recorded a total of 14 under par and 202 strokes in rounds 1 to 3, will enter the final round as the sole leader, one stroke ahead of runner-up Ko Gun-taek (13 under par, 203 strokes). 안전놀이터

Seo Yo-seop, who finished the first and second rounds as a joint leader, took the sole lead that day. If you keep the lead on the 16th, the last day of the competition, you will win the ‘Wire to Wire’ by finishing all rounds in first place. 

Seo Yo-seop has won 5 career victories since his debut. Four of those wins were achieved while wearing his current main sponsor, DB Property & Casualty Insurance caps. 

If he wins this tournament, it will be his first win of the season and his 6th career win. He also gets the special pleasure of reaching the top in a competition hosted by his sponsor.

On this day, it rained mischievously at the venue, which hindered the play. Seo Yo-seop’s match also didn’t work out properly. He said, “The game didn’t go as expected as my body temperature dropped because of the rain.” “In the ninth hole (par 4), my tee shot was pushed to the right and I was in danger of seeing it, but fortunately I made a par save. After that, I rode a good flow. 4 strokes I am satisfied with the reduction,” he said, looking back at Haru. 

Seo Yoseop signed a sponsorship contract with DB Insurance in 2021 and extended the contract with new conditions this year. 

Yoseob Seo said, “I will definitely win the championship in order to repay the sponsors who always support me generously. 

Defending champion Park Sang-hyun was tied for 3rd place with a total of 12 under par 204 strokes. There is ample possibility of a turnaround as it is two strokes behind the lead. 

Park Sang-hyun also did not hide his desire to win. He pledged, “There is no need for second or third place. My goal is to win. I want to be the first player in his debut to successfully defend the title and become the first player to win two consecutive titles in the tournament.”

Last year’s rookie of the year Bae Yong-joon tied for 3rd place with Park Sang-hyun, and Jeon Seong-hyun, who was co-leader in the second round, fell behind to 5th place (10 under par, 206 strokes).
