“My tee shots, iron shots and putting were very good today and I was able to reduce my score a lot,” said Lee afterward. My irons haven’t been working as well as I thought lately, but I think I’ve found my groove again.” “I think I need to play well on the weekend to have a chance to win. Sung Jae and Joo Hyung have been playing well and winning, so I hope I can finish well this week with a good score.”안전놀이터
