Wang Jeong-hoon scored 5 under par in the 3rd round of the DP World Tour (formerly European Tour) Thailand Classic (total prize money of 2 million dollars), which was held at the Amata Spring Country Club (par 72, 7505 yards) in Chonburi, Bangkok, Thailand on the 18th and tied for 5th place ( 14 under par, 202 strokes). Torbjorn Olesen leads (18 under par, 198 strokes), and Nikolai Hoygor (above Denmark) and Yannick Paul (Germany) are tied for second place (16 under par, 200 strokes).
Wang Jeong-hoon메이저놀이터 tied 8 birdies and 3 bogies. After the first birdie on hole 6 (par 4), he boasted of his ‘strength’ of 5 consecutive birdies on holes 8 to 12. After taking a breather on the 13th hole (par 3), I added a series of birdies again on the 14th and 15th holes. However, it was regrettable that he wrote down two bogies on holes 16 and 18. It is a 4-stroke gap from the leader, and it is a chance to win the DP World Tour for the third time in six years since winning the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters in January 2017.
Olesen took over the top of the leaderboard, sweeping 8 birdies without a bogey. He is 127th in the world rankings and is a Danish powerhouse with a total of 6 wins. Hoygor, famous as the ‘twin golfer’, also added to the championship competition by reducing 8 strokes. Joost Luyten (Netherlands) placed 4th, Rafa Cabrera Beyo (Spain) tied for 8th place (13 under par, 203 strokes), and last week’s Singapore Classic runner-up, Sami Balimaki (Finland), tied for 11th place (12 under par, 204 strokes).
