Park Seong-hyun, who is aiming for a revival, “Challenge for 3 wins including majors this year”
“My shoulder, which was injured, is no longer a problem. After going through hard times over the past three years, my heart has become stronger. This year, I made up my mind to win three times, including a major championship, with my caddy.”
Park Seong-hyun (30), who is undergoing physical training equivalent to hell training every day for resurrection, expressed his feelings of welcoming 2023 wearing bright and colorful golf clothes for the first time in a long time.
Park Seong-hyun, who held a clothing sponsorship signing ceremony at the Amazing Cree Gangnam Dosan store in Sinsa-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul on the 9th, said, “I am happy to start this year with Amazing Cree. I will work hard to achieve better results.” There was no tension in Park Sung-hyun’s tone and expression. He was full of excitement and anticipation, just like a rookie about to take on a new challenge. He also showed confidence that he had now come out of a long sluggish tunnel.
Park Seong-hyun said, “I finished last year’s season early and am focusing on physical training. I train in two places and do 3-4 hours of physical training every day to improve my physical condition.” Yes. My goal is to build stamina that I will not get tired of by the second half of this year.”
Self-selected hell training. It’s because of the regret I felt at the end of last year. “I came in third at the Hite Jinro Championship held in Korea at the end of last year. It was the best result and I felt so good,” said Park Seong-hyun, who looked back and said, “However, there were only a few competitions left after that, so I had to finish the season with regret.” .
Then Park Seong-hyun said, “I thought my physical strength should improve,” adding, “I plan to go to the United States for swing and technical practice in earnest. I plan to leave the country on January 20th and train intensively until March.” .
It is now in its 7th year on the LPGA Tour. The past 6 years have been, in a word, ‘heaven and hell’. Park Seong-hyun, who debuted on the LPGA tour in 2017, won two victories that year, including a major US Women’s Open championship, and swept the rookie award, prize money king, and player of the year awards. Here, she even set a record of becoming the first LPGA Tour rookie to be ranked No. 1 in the world. Since then, he has won 3 wins in 2018 and 2 wins in 2019, and has been on a winning streak.
But it stopped there. Park’s winning record was stopped at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship in June 2019. After that, he fell into a slump due to a shoulder injury and could not get out of it. He couldn’t even swing properly, and his mind became impatient as he repeated treatment and rehabilitation. Because she took a break from practice with no swing at all, her senses were gone and her swing was ruined. The more he was in a hurry, the more missed shots were made on the field.
Looking back, Park Seong-hyun said, “I think I had a painful day until last year.” “This has also been a great help in my life. Rather than thinking of ‘overcoming’, I decided to think of it as just a day in the past. May only good things happen every day. There is no. Thinking like this made my heart hardened.”
now thirty years old Park Seong-hyun dreams of a new leap in earnest. Park Seong-hyun, who showed a characteristic half-moon eye smile, said, “Now I am in my 30s,” and pledged, “Now I want to abandon my childlike mind and live as a mature adult dealing with golf and external things. I think that will be more helpful in my life.” did. She added, “Last year, I lived alone in the United States and learned how to stand alone.”메이저놀이터
There is also a strong support group. Caddy from a professional golfer who played on the Canadian tour. They decided to recruit Lee Sang-kyun, who worked together at the LPGA Tour and the Hite Jinro Championship last year, as a professional caddy and short game coach. Park Seong-hyun said, “I’ve already been in touch with my caddy and discussing training methods, and I decided to run the tour by taking short game lessons intensively this season.” I am practicing,” he said.
Now, the body, mind, and golf are ready. Park Seong-hyun said, “In 2023, I think I have to win the championship to finish really well. I plan to prepare strongly with that mindset,” he did not hide his firm determination.
