‘Super Rookie’ next to ‘Super Helper’…Kim Min-byul, 8 under par and Mediheal Hankook Ilbo 1R lead

 “The veteran caddy helped me a lot in attacking the course.”

Korea Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour ‘Rookie’ Kim Min-byeol got her first chance to win in her second tournament this year. Next to him was Seo Jeong-woo, the caddy of the ‘winner’. 

In the first round of the KLPGA Tour Mediheal Hankuk Ilbo Championship held at the Ferrum Club (par 72) in Yeoju, Gyeonggi-do on the 13th, Kim Min-byeol had a perfect day, making 8 birdies without a bogey. 

Kim Min-byul, who recorded a total of 8-under-par 64 in the first round, beat the second-place group by three strokes and engraved his name at the top of his leaderboard.

Kim Min-byeol, who was mentioned as a potential rookie of the year even before the season, finished 6th at the Lotte Rent-a-Car Women’s Open held in Jeju Island last week. 

Kim Min-byeol, who had a perfect day, looked back on the game, saying, “I didn’t know it would end with such a good score.” 

The 8 under par 64 strokes recorded by Kim Min-byeol is the course record and tie record set by Lee Min-young in the second round of the 2015 KLPGA Championship. 

Kim Min-byeol, who failed to write a course record because he unfortunately missed a birdie on the 18th hole, expressed regret, saying, “I was burdened to learn that the course record was renewed.” 

He also expressed his gratitude to caddy Seo Jung-woo without hesitation. Seo Jeong-woo became famous while carrying Kim Hyo-joo’s caddy bag on the LPGA tour. At one time, he was also called the “100 million won annual salary caddy.”

After Kim Hyo-joo, he served as a ‘special helper’ for famous players such as Lee Jung-min and Oh Ji-hyun. Seo Jeong-woo is the caddy who receives the most ‘wooing’ from players for his thorough course analysis and excellent game management. 

Kim Min-byeol expressed her gratitude, saying, “Because I am a veteran, I am filling in a lot of rookie’s lack of experience. In particular, I am lacking in know-how to navigate the course, but I am receiving a lot of help in that area.” 

Joo-mi Lee and Seung-hee Noh tied for second place with a 5-under 67. Park Hyeon-kyung faces the second round with a 4 under par 68 strokes and 4th place alone. 

Park Min-ji, who is challenging her third consecutive title in the prize money, will challenge for a come-from-behind championship with a 3 under par 69 strokes and a tie for 5th place. Park Do-eun, Ha Min-song, and Lee Ga-young are also tied for fifth place.
