After the game, Seo Yeon-jeong smiled and said, “I knew 10 under par was the course record, but I played with my mind down. I was surprised myself. I felt like all my putts would go in, so I was more confident.”

As he neared his first win in his life, he said, “Winning doesn’t happen just by thinking about it, so I’ll put my mind down and take it easy. When I think back on the times when I missed out on winning, I always played too hard to protect myself. Tomorrow, I’ll try to be more aggressive.” I made up my mind.

Rookie Hwang Yu-min is aiming for his second win of the season. He followed closely behind Seo Yeon-jeong, adding 5 under par that day.

Noh Seung-hee, who was the sole leader in the first round, added 3 under par that day and fell to a tie for second place. However, there is still a possibility of a come-from-behind victory.
