Lee holds fast to triumph in Kolon Korea Open
CHEONAN, South Korea – South Korean Lee Kyung-Hoon carded a nerveless, five-under final round of 66 to take the Kolon Korea Open title on Sunday, four shots clear of his nearest rival.
The 24-year-old started the day with a two-stroke lead at the top of the leader-board and never looked like relinquishing his position, making an eagle at the fifth and then birdying holes seven, eight and nine. “I am proud of the way I handled the pressure. Four shots is a nice margin but it was all much closer than that,” Lee said.
Compatriot Kim Meen-Whee also carded a 66 to move up into second position four shots behind Lee. Two other Koreans, Wang Jeung-Hun and Lee Dong-Min, tied for third place three shots back.
