Bizplay electronic newspaper opening suspended… First 36-hole tournament in 34 years

During the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Tour Bizplay Electronic Newspaper Open (total prize money of 700 million won, winner’s prize of 140 million won), the game was stopped due to worsening weather. A 36-hole tournament was held for the first time in 34 years since 1989.

The second round of the tournament, held on the 16th at the Cosmos Rings Course (par 72) in Yeongam, Jeollanam-do, began at 7 am that day. At 11 a.m토토사이트., the game was suspended for two hours due to bad weather (rain).

The game was scheduled to resume at 2pm after an additional one-hour stoppage due to rain and lightning. In this situation, the weather worsened and course conditions worsened, so the game was stopped at 1:30 p.m.

Of the 133 players, 67 in the morning group started the game, and 3 of them (1 group) finished the game.

As of the second round, the sole leader is Seong-ho Lee (36, Brick). Seong-ho Lee, who played up to the 15th hole, has a total score of 11 under par.

This tournament, which had been reduced to 54 holes the previous day due to bad weather, was eventually reduced to 36 holes.

The second round match will be held on the 17th. If 36 holes are not completed on the 17th, the second round will be held on the 18th.

If the course is reduced to 36 holes, only 75% of the official prize money will be paid. However, 100% Genesis points are given.

It is the first time in 34 years that a 36-hole match has been held in Korean professional golf. In the past, there have been only two KPGA Korean Tour 36-hole matches: the Busan Open in August 1983 and the Pocari Sweat Open in June 1989.

The BizPlay Electronic Newspaper Open is experiencing the misfortune of having the competition repeatedly curtailed due to bad weather.

The 2020 tournament held at Jeju Tamius CC was canceled on the second day. Last year, the venue was changed to Jeju Blackstone Golf & Resort, but the match was canceled on the first day. This tournament was then moved to Yeongam Cosmos Lynx in Jeollanam-do and was reduced to a 36-hole tournament.
