Jang Yubin competes in men’s golf at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games.
Jang Yubin (Korea Gymnastics Federation) of the men’s golf team led the field for all three days of the
Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games, setting the stage for an individual title. The Korean team has also improved
its chances of winning the team gold medal with consistent performances.
Jang Yubin carded six birdies and two bogeys for a 4-under 68 in the third round of the men’s golf
competition at the West Lake International Golf Course (Par 72) in Hangzhou, China on Tuesday.
At 20-under par 196, Zhang is in third place, four strokes behind leader Dai Chi Ko (Hong Kong – 24-under par 192).
Jang played in the amateur quota alongside Cho Woo-young (Woori Financial Group) on the men’s golf team for the tournament.
Jang has been a frequent invitee on the Korean Professional Golf Association (KPGA) Korean Tour this season, winning the Gunsan CC Open.
Jang has been consistently in contention for a top-10 finish, including a share of the lead on day one of
the tournament, raising his medal prospects.
Starting on the front nine, Jang got off to a good start with back-to-back birdies on the first and second
holes. After dropping a shot on the fifth (par-4), Jang bogeyed the sixth (par-4) and seventh (par-3), but
made up for it with a birdie on the eighth (par-5).
In the second half, Jang birdied the 10th (par-5) and 17th (par-5) to cut two more strokes off her lead.
Lim Sung-jae and Kim Si-woo (CJ)
Who both play on the United States Professional Golf Association (PGA) Tour, also stepped up.
Lim had eight birdies and one double-bogey on the day, shaving six strokes off his score to sit in a tie for
fourth place at 19-under-par 197. Kim Si-woo shaved four strokes off his total to reach 16-under-par 200 and sit in a tie for eighth place.
Lim’s and Kim’s performances helped South Korea solidify its lead in the team competition, which reflects
the top three players’ results. With a 58-under-par 590, the Koreans are 14 strokes ahead of second-place Thailand (44-under 604). 스포츠토토링크
