A golfer who was second to none in terms of strength. However, it is also true that there was no clear result, so there was a half-doubtful gaze.

Jung Chan-min, the long hitter who represents the KPGA tour, finally had a moment of glory.

On the 7th at Namseoul Country Club (par 71) in Seongnam, Gyeonggi-do, Jeong Chan-min recorded 5 under par 66 strokes in the final 3rd round of the GS Caltex Maekyung Open, confirming the championship with a final total of 16 under par 197 strokes.

Jung Chan-min, who first appeared on the first tour in 2017 and started touring in earnest last year, is a long hitter representing men’s golf.

The 317.111 yards he recorded last year surpassed the 312.438 yards recorded by Mika Lorenshin in 2020, the highest average drive distance in a season.

As much as his potential was extraordinary, the place Jung Chan-min looked at was also high. It’s the PGA Tour.

The part where you can read Jeong Chan-min’s will is his beard. He had participated in the PGA Conferri Tour Astara Chile Classic held in Chile just before the Korean Tour began. Unfortunately, he was eliminated from the cut, but he returned home immediately and participated in the DB Insurance Pro Me Open, the opening match of the Korean Tour.

At the time, after the first round, Jeong Chan-min, who we met, said, “I still can’t adjust to the jet lag, but I participated in the tournament. He couldn’t shave because he was in a hurry,” he said, laughing after touching his beard and asking if it suits him.스포츠토토

Since then, the shaggy beard has become Jeong Chan-min’s trademark. But it’s not just randomly growing. In an interview after winning this tournament, Jeong Chan-min said, “I want to grow while managing it.”

Jeong Chan-min’s gaze is still focused on the top stage, the PGA Tour. But he has to go through a process to get where he wants to go.

First of all, Jung Chan-min plans to play a round with Lim Seong-jae at the Woori Finance Championship, which will be held immediately. Of course, expectations are bound to be high. Regarding entering the PGA Tour, Jeong Chan-min said, “I want to measure my skills,” and said, “If it is possible in September, I will try to discuss it. Right now, I will focus on the upcoming competitions. It would be a big deal if I missed the cut,” he said, showing his characteristic flair.

Jeong Chan-min has the potential to show off his competitiveness in the world’s best tournaments with his long hitting power alone. And through this tournament, he even tasted his victory while filling in the details he lacked. The first win on the KPGA Tour is expected to instill great confidence in Jung Chan-min.
