On the 6th, ‘up to 90mm rain + 14m wind per second’ forecast… KLPGA Tour Kyochon Ladies Open, Will the 2R be held properly?

 Can the second schedule be completed properly?

The KLPGA (Korea Women’s Professional Golf) Tour Kyochon 1991 Ladies Open (total prize money of 800 million won), which will be held on the 6th at Asiad Country Club (par 72, 6565 yards) in Busan, will be played with the remainder of the first round and the second round. The remaining matches of the first round, which could not be played due to rain, start at 6:50 am and continue until the second round.

In the first round on the 5th, 65 out of 130 players failed to finish the match. The start was delayed by an hour due to rain from the morning, and the players struggled hard as strong rain and wind overlapped in the subsequent game. Among the players who finished the first day, Woo-Jung Kim shot 4-under-par 68 with 4 birdies without a bogey and climbed to the top of the leaderboard.

It is unclear whether the 6-day schedule will proceed properly. According to the forecast of the Korea Meteorological Administration, rain will continue from dawn on the 6th to morning in Gijang, Busan, where the competition will be held. It is predicted that more than 60mm of rain will fall only between dawn, and more than 30mm of rain will fall even in the morning when the remaining schedule for the first round unfolds.ㅋㅋㅋ벳

Wind is a bigger problem. As the intensity gradually increased from the dawn of the 6th, it is predicted that the wind will blow at a maximum speed of 14 to 15m per second on the morning of the 6th. Rain is expected to stop from late in the morning, but strong winds are expected to blow until late in the afternoon. It’s common to play in the wind, but difficulties seem unavoidable given that most female players are affected by their shots and putts when the wind blows more than 7m per second.

In the end, all the contestants had to fight against themselves. The course condition caused by heavy rain for two days and the influence of strong wind cannot be freed. As the match schedule is pushed back, a physical battle is unavoidable. It seems that the winner’s direction will be determined not only by factors outside the game, but also by how well they control their skills and composure.
