KPGA representative ‘Geopo’ Jeong Chan-min and Kim Bio, and veteran Choi Kyung-ju…Scheduled in a group in the SKT Open Qualifier

In the 1st and 2nd rounds of the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour SK Telecom Open, a battle of long hits and experience takes place.

According to the 1st and 2nd round groups announced by the organizing committee on the 16th, Jeong Chan-min, Kim Bio, and veteran Choi Kyung-ju will tee off side by side on the 18th at Pinx Golf Club (par 71) in Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do.

Jeong Chan-min became the king of long hits last year when he was a rookie, and Kim Bio is currently the No. 1 player in the long hit category.

Chan-min Jung’s season average distance of 317.11 yards last year remains the longest in KPGA Tour history.

When he won the GS Caltex Maekyung Open, which ended on the 7th, he drew attention with a long hit that reached 400 yards on the 16th hole.

He currently ranks first in the long hit category. The average distance is 337 yards.

Last year he also ranked 12th in slugging (299.17 yards) and in 2021 he was 7th in slugging (301.27 yards).

This grouping is based on the practice of tying the defending champion and the top player in prize money or target points. Kim Bio was the defending champion, and Jung Chan-min ranked first in prize money and grand prize points.

It is also interesting that Choi Kyung-ju, who has the reputation, will play against these two long hitters in the first and second rounds.

Although he lags far behind in distance, his iron shots and short game are still sharp, making it a point to watch how he will play against younger players.
