“Play freely” is how Yoojin Sung gained his confidence

After her first win of the Doosan Matchplayer season, Sung Yoo-jin Sung (23, Q CELLS) is feeling confident.

She shot a 2-under 70 in the third round of the DB Group 37th Korea Women’s Open Golf Championship at Rainbow Hills CC in Minsung, Chungcheongbuk-do on Sunday.

With an overall total of 1-over par 217, Sung is tied for 40th place, up 11 spots from the previous day, and will look to move up in the final round.

After her third round, Sung said in a Mixzone interview, “The pain in my left hand fingers is improving a lot. It’s gotten to a point where it doesn’t affect my game too much,” she breathed a sigh of relief.

On the day, Sung made four birdies early on and seemed to be climbing up the leaderboard, but in the second half, she made back-to-back bogeys on the 14th and 15th holes. However, Sung said, “I don’t feel bad about it. It was a mistake that could have been avoided, so I’m not going to dwell on it.”

Last month’s victory at the Doosan Match Play certainly helped Sung’s confidence.

“Actually, I was trying to play confidently before. It’s nice to be seen in that light after winning,” he said with a laugh.

Above all, the biggest difference this season has been the improvement in her stroke average, fairway finding percentage, and green hitting percentage compared to last year. “It’s still early in the season, and it’s possible that my numbers are up because I’m playing well. “It’s still early in the season, and it’s possible that my numbers have gone up because I’m playing well,” she says with a smile, “but before the tournament started, I played in Saudi Arabia and Hawaii, and I realized that I could play a little more freely there.

She is currently tied for 40th at 1-over par 217, but has the potential to move up the leaderboard. Outside of the top tier, the field is tightly packed.

Sung said, “I’m going to play hard. There’s not much of a gap between me and the top players, so if I can make birdies, I’ll be able to catch up,” she said going into the final round.
