5.5 hours… 1 round of golf
The Korean Ladies Professional Golf Association’s (KLPGA) ruling had to be followed an example: instead of teeing off from two tee boxes (1 and 10), we had a shut gun, whereas everybody started at the same time but on different holes. A disaster. We had to be patient as sometimes we were a few flights on the same tee waiting to play.
Many european players were not used for such a slow play, Laura Davies (GBR) one of the favourite player mentioned: ‘I just lost my rhythm’. She played a round of 78 (+6).
Rounds of 76 and 79 would not be good enough to make the final field. What a course, 5896 m length, wow! On top of this we were on sea level and it was pretty cold and windy, therefore no extra length on long shots!
Highlight of the week was my eagle on hole number 14, i chipped in a sw from about 45 meters.
I am glad i went to Korea, i learned so much. Korean players are just the best players in the world, it was amazing competing in the same tournament. The big difference between them and myself is the short game as the long game pretty much the same. I call them the machines as soon the approach the green. Just impressive! No wonder their scores are low.
Next stop Delhi. After that tournament i will come home to Switzerland. The last tournament on the LET will be played in Dubai in December.
