Roh Seung-yeol, who drove 11 under par with a broken driver…3 stroke lead


Roh Seung-yeol (32) took the lead by 3 strokes with an 11-under despite the difficulty of a broken driver during the first day of AT&T Byron Nelson’s game on the PGA Tour.

On the 12th (Korean time), on the first day of the tournament held at TPC Craig Ranch (par 71) in McKinney, near Dallas, Texas, Noh Seung-yeol took 1 eagle and 9 birdies without a bogey and recorded 11 under par 60 strokes. It is three strokes behind Adam Scott (Australia) and Du Jecheng (China), who are tied for second place. The 60 strokes recorded by Noh Seung-yeol is a course record tie and the lowest in his career. It is also the second 60 on the PGA Tour this season. Last October, Patrick Kentley (USA) shot 60 at the Shriners Children’s Open스포츠토토.

Noh Seung-yeol could have recorded a ‘dream 59’ if he had caught an eagle on the last 18th hole (par 5), but he finished with a birdie after a layup. On this hole with a pond in front of the green, Noh Seung-yeol drove 280 yards, leaving 257 yards to the pin. Noh Seung-yeol, who hits 260 yards with a 3-wood when there is no wind, could have tried a 2-on to set a record, but he chose a 3-on because he was afraid of drowning. He left 87 yards, his most confident distance to the pin, and made a 2.7m birdie. After the game, Noh Seung-yeol said, “Everything was amazing. He is one stroke short of his dream 59, but he is happy nonetheless.”

Noh Seung-yeol recorded the lowest score of his career on this day, amid difficulties with his driver breaking. Even though the ball hit the tee shot with a driver in hole 12 (par 4), he realized something was wrong when he was pushed far to the right. Noh Seung-yeol, who checked the driver’s head, found that he was incontinent. With the rule revision, starting this year, if a club is unintentionally damaged or seriously damaged during a game, it can be replaced.

Noh Seung-yeol had only 21 putts that day. Noh Seung-yeol, who made consecutive birdies on holes 1, 2, 5, and 6, made a 2.4m eagle putt after 2 hits on hole 9 (par 5), and putt for birdie from a distance of 12m on hole 11. In the 16th hole, where he used the replaced driver for the first time, he put an 8m par putt, and in the 17th hole, he dropped a long birdie putt with a distance of 10m.

Noh Seung-yeol has one win on the PGA Tour. He won the 2014 Zurich Classic. At that time, it was an individual event, not a team game. After serving in the military, he returned to the PGA Tour, but has yet to win. His best result was a tie for 19th at the Zurich Classic this year as well. Noh Seung-yeol was eliminated in all of his last three appearances in this tournament.

Bae Sang-moon (37) and Kang Seong-hoon (36) also recorded 5-under par 66 strokes, starting in a tie for 17th with Hideki Matsuyama (Japan). However, Lee Gyeong-hoon (32), who is trying to win his third consecutive championship, tied for 88th place with a 1-under 71. Lee Gyeong-hoon caught an eagle and a birdie each, but committed two bogeys. Scotty Scheffler (USA) and Jason Day (Australia), who played in the same group as Lee Kyung-hoon, tied for 4th with 7 under par 64 strokes.
