Too Easy Victory of 8 Strokes

Posted October. 25, 2002 23:09,   


In the first round of KLPGA, Seri Pak had to easy victory against Annika Sorenstam (Sweden).

Seri Pak gained control of the movements by taking a Birdie in the first hole (par 4). She succeeded in Birdie putting of 4m, but Sorenstam played a Boggy with 2 strokes from the fist hole.

As soon as the Birdie putting of 2m came out of the hole cup in the third hole (par 5), her face was drawn with tension. Park Seri had the difference of 3 stokes with the second birdie in the 4th hole (par 4).

As Seri added the birdie in the 6th hole (par 4), she broke a chasing will of Sorenstam. She beat Sorenstam by a gap of 3 strokes again.

However, in the 7th hole (par 3), she confronted a crisis owing to Chip In Birdie. Her second shot was on the ground across a cart road after passing the Green in the 8th hole (par 4).

Seri asked if ‘Penalty stroke Drop was allowed’, but she couldn’t do it. The third shot was on the top of green.

However, among her good shots, a highlight came out in the crisis. Her chip shot was put in the hole cup directly. It was the very par more valuable than birdie.

She did the first boggy in the 11th hole (par 4). However, Park Seri succeeded the par putting continuously with her concentration in the 12th and 13th hole. Also, she did the consecutive birdies in the 15th and 16th hole. Galleries gave her claps as she did the 8th birdie simply with unique long stroke in the final 18th hole (par 5).
