How was the second round of the tournament for you?
I think I performed more confidently today with better shots and putts and no bogey. I am also happy I told myself to err on the side of caution and I am happy with today’s result.
What was different from the first round?
SLH: I played aggressively in the first round so careless mistakes were made. However, today, I aimed for low-risk shots and was able to reduce the score.
How is the course at Sky72?
The course at Sky72 is challenging but difficult courses provide me with the opportunity to push myself further in strategizing my course of action so I enjoy Sky72.
How do you feel about the ending of the season?
I was looking forward to the season but many tournaments were cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic. Despite the lesser number of tournaments happening, I was lucky to be able to play on challenging and exclusive golf courses when I could. I have also learnt a lot from other seasoned players during the tour such as how to better target the courses and make saves on play. I was exposed to valuable experiences and opportunities that were extremely helpful for a rookie. I am grateful for all the sponsors who made KLPGA tournaments and Hana Financial Group for making this championship possible during this difficult situation that the world is in.
What are your goals for this tournament?
I am focused on improving my shots and aim to finish this tournament in the Top 10.
