After a commotion ignited by the golf gambling of the ruling coalition’s learders, Kim Jong-Pil, honorary president of the United Liberal Democrats (ULD), stood again yesterday.

Kim participates in the ProAm competition held by the Lakeside CC, Yongin, Kyonggi, which held the advance of the Korean women open golf championship tournament for Astra Cup. JP, teamed with Se-Ri Park, won the competition among 25 teams. JP hit 78 and Se-Ri hit 70. After the round, JP remarked that golf game need to be developed as an industry. He also said, ``I hope more Korean golfers conquer the international golf world.``

Se-Ri Park commented that JP’s golf skill is very good, although he did not learn from an expert.

A source of JP said that JP will continue his golf game even though he had burning feeling about the rumor.

However, criticisms of netizens rushed into the bulletin board of the ULD’s home page. The netizens ridiculed, ``Now you are tired of playing golf with the politicians,`` or ``When some people have to work for their life, you just play golf for your life.``
