Namseoul CC, Seongnam, Gyeonggi-do, where the GS Caltex Maekyung Open, the ‘Korean Masters’, is held. Golf fans’ attention is focused on the three holes of Ma, the 16th, 17th, and 18th holes. However, the remaining 15 holes also have their own charms. In order to reach the top, Park Sang-hyun (40) introduces the four holes that professional golfers take care of and provide fun to golf fans.
Park Sang-hyun, the winner of this competition in 2016 and 2018, was strong enough to receive a prize of 825,082,140 won at the GS Caltex Maekyung Open alone. Park Sang-hyun, who succeeded in passing the cut in all but one, is a man from South Seoul who was named in the top 10 and top 25 6 times and 13 times, respectively.
The four holes Park Sang-hyun pays the most attention to as well as the three holes of Ma are the 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th holes. Park Sang-hyun said, “It is not known to golf fans, but the difficulty of the four holes felt by the players is enormous.” You can feel the difference,” he said.
Hole 3 (par 3) ‘Fore putt warning’
In the 3rd hole, which is 173m long, the score is determined by the result of the tee shot. As the downhill slope from the back of the green to the front is steep, you must hit it shorter than the pin unconditionally. If the tee shot goes to the back of the hole, it’s good to have a three-putt. Pray that you won’t get a for-putt, especially if the pin is planted in front left of the green바카라사이트.
Although the third hole is brutal for players, it also gives hope to golf fans. This is because players on the green make mistakes similar to amateur golfers. More players would have lost strokes on the third hole if they hadn’t been able to pin and hit on the green. Like the 16th hole, the 3rd hole is a tricky hole that makes you clench your fists even if you catch par.
Hole 5 (par 4) ‘War of Flyers’
In the 5th hole, be careful of the flyers. There is a hazard on the left side of the fairway and a bunker on the right side, so players feel a lot of pressure at the teeing ground. Most of the tee shots go to the rough near the bunker on the right side of the fairway, and players worry about the flyer before the second shot. This is because it is difficult to precisely control the distance as grass gets caught between the club face and the ball, causing flyers.
Because it is a bagged green, it cannot be played shorter than the pin unconditionally. If they fail to cross the uphill slope in front of the green, they will fall back more than 10m, causing the players to worry before the second shot. The most important thing is to aim for the green edge and swing with confidence. It is another fun to watch the shots of the players counting and hitting the flyer on the green of the 6th hole of Namseoul CC.
Hole 7 (par 4) ‘The Notorious Green’
Players who have visited Namseoul CC say that the worst green is the 7th hole. The length of the course is not long at 382m, but the slope of the green is steep, so the players’ performance is not good. From the outside, it doesn’t feel as steep as the 2-tiered green on the 18th hole. However, when you get on the green, the slope is so steep that you can feel it with both feet. Even in this hole, you must hit an iron shot that is unconditionally shorter than the pin.
Another thing to watch out for is the fine line around the hole. This is why players make putt mistakes at short distances of less than 1m. The 7th hole is a hole that you must not be vigilant for even a moment until you hole out.
9th hole (par 5) ’12m fairway’
This is one of the few holes where players aim for a birdie at Namseoul CC. Some players even say that it is difficult to win if you do not make a birdie on the 9th hole on the third and final day. In order to bear the fruit of birdie, you must hit the tee shot well. But getting the ball into the fairway isn’t easy. This is because there are bunkers on the right and left sides of the fairway and it is about 12m wide.
If you send the ball to the fairway that even professional golfers have difficulty with, the rest of the shot is not difficult. You can look directly at the pin and aim for a two-on, or you can take a third shot from the distance you are most confident about. As many galleries are gathered on the green of hole 9 as well as that of hole 18, if you catch a birdie, you can comfortably move on to the second half.
