Ko Jeong-won, who recorded an interim total of 8 under par 208, was tied for ninth place. He’s a little behind the lead by 6 strokes, but he deserves a shot at his first top 10 on the DP World Tour.

Go Jung-won, who recovered by successfully making birdies in holes 7 and 8, could not continue the atmosphere with a bogey on hole 9 (par 4), but in the second half, he made birdies on holes 12 (par 5) and 18 (par 5) without a bogey. It showed stable play.
Ko Jeong-won, a French Korean born in 1998, who stood out in golf enough to be selected for the French national team, entered the DP World Tour this year. He competed in 24 matches on the Second Division Challenge Tour last year and finished in the top 10 six times, including one runner-up.
