After finishing the Shinhan Donghae Open in Korea, he took second place at the ANA Open last week, one stroke behind Hideto Tanihara. The ranking is high enough to be in the top 10 four times this season alone. The prize money is also the highest ever at 6th place.
Song Young-han, who started the game at the 10th hole in the second half, made consecutive birdies on the 11th and 12th holes, followed by three consecutive birdies on the 14th and 15th holes, and the 18th and 1st holes. He added a birdie on the par 3 3rd hole, and then birdied the 5th and 6th holes again to finish the match.
Song Young-han, who finished the game, said, “I had a good feeling from the start of this season and thought I could take advantage of the opportunity.” He added, “In particular, my putting and short game improved, and it paid off with good results in recent competitions.”
Nagano, 35, took the lead for the first time since the Kansai Open in April. Nagano, who finished in 5th place in the competition at the time, confessed, “I recently injured my back and was unable to participate in the last competition because I was receiving treatment. It hurts and I am scared, but I have always suffered from my back, so I have no choice but to deal with it the best I can.”
Tsubasa Ukita took 3rd place by reducing 8 strokes including an eagle, Korean Todd Beck (USA) and Nagano Taiga both shot 7 under par 65 strokes and finished in 4th place, and Sanghee Lee shot 5 under par 67 strokes and finished in 9th place.
