Hong Ran ended his 17-year tour career with the second round of the Hana Financial Group Championship (total prize money of 1.5 billion won, winning prize money of 270 million won) held at the Cheongna Bears Best Cheongna Golf Club (par 72/6,745 yards) in Incheon on the 30th.
Hong Ran was eliminated from the cut with a total of 145 strokes in the first and second rounds, tied for 65th. He could have advanced to the third round if he had reduced one stroke.
In the first round, Joo Seo-yul, who is two years younger, wore Hong-ran’s golf bag. Hong Ran smiled broadly and posed to the reporters in front of the No. 4 tee box, saying, “Please take a pretty picture of us, too.” Maybe I talked to him in person because I wanted to leave a memory.
When he entered the tee box in the second round, he greeted the galleries one by one and thanked them for their support. I made six greetings in the tea box alone. All of them are galleries and acquaintances who support Hong-ran. 바카라사이트

He then said to his juniors, “I think it would be good if it had a good influence and was an example.” “I’m touched that my juniors told me that I’m a senior they want to resemble,” he said.
As for my future plans, I said, “I’ve done the same thing regularly for 14 years, so I want to do something new and interesting.”
