The Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour’s Bizplay-Electronic Newspaper Open (total prize money of 700 million won) was postponed due to bad weather.

The tournament organizers postponed the second round of the tournament at Cosmos Links (Par 72) in Yeongam-gun, Jeollanam-do on the 16th to the 17th and shortened the tournament to 36 holes.

It is the first time in 34 years since the 1989 Pokariswet Open that a KPGA Korean Tour event has been played in 36 holes.

This is the third time a 36-hole tournament has been played, including the 1983 Busan Open.

With the reduction to 36 holes, only 75% of the total prize money will be paid to the players. However, Genesis Points will still be awarded.

According to the KPGA Korean Tour rules, if the tournament is shortened to 54 holes, the prize money will still be paid, but if it is shortened to 36 holes, 75% will be paid, and if only 18 holes are played, 50% will be divided equally.

If a tournament is canceled without a player completing 18 holes, 25% of the total prize money will be split equally.

The tournament will not be recognized as an official tournament if only 18 holes are played or if 18 holes are not completed.

On this day, it rained so much that a heavy rain warning was issued for Yeongam-gun.

Only three players out of 133 finished the second round, and 66 didn’t even tee off.

The day before, the course had been flooded by heavy rain and no players were able to tee off, and the tournament organizers had to postpone the second round on the 15th, reducing the tournament from 72 to 54 holes, and then finally to 36 holes as the bad weather continued.

With rain forecast for the 17th, the organizers plan to continue the tournament through Monday, the 18th.

If the tournament continues to the 18th, it will be the third tournament in nine years to end on a Monday after the 2014 Korea Open and the Herald KYJ Tour Championship in the same year.

At the time, the Korea Open played 72 holes, while the Herald KYJ Tour Championship played 54 holes after being forced to play through Monday.

Meanwhile, Lee Sung-ho, who was six shots off the pace through the 15th hole before the day was suspended, leads the field at 11-under par.

After 18 holes, Ko Seok-wan (Canada) shot a 5-under 67 to move into a tie for second place at 9-under along with Moon Moon-jun, who shaved six strokes off his 12 holes, and Jeon Gar-ram, who shaved four strokes off his 10 holes.

Defending champion Choi Jin-ho shaved three strokes off his score over 11 holes for a 7-under total.

Park Eun-shin and Kyo-po Jung (USA), who shared the first round lead after shooting a 7-under 65, did not even start their second rounds on the day.

First-round co-leader Lee Seung-taek withdrew due to a high fever and chills.

Kim Bi-Oh, Park Sang-Hyun and Hangzhou Asian Games teammate Cho Woo-Young also withdrew and packed their bags. 토토
