Min Woo Lee, statements
"It's incredible. I finished very well last year and I started off on the right foot this year. I was close on Sunday. I don't know why I'm in such a bad shape. I put less pressure on myself and hit every shot the best I can.
It's very nice. I think it has to do with the fact that I don't care too much about whether I'm going to win or not, and it's funny because it works. If I had not played well in Spain (3rd at the Spanish Open then 3rd at the Andalusian Masters), I would not have qualified for the DP World Tour Championship and I would have rested.
In the end, I played well and had a series of top 5s, with the worst result being a top 12. I think it's a mixture of technique and mental approach. I have only played this course once or twice before. I will go recognize him today and I will play 9 holes in the Pro-Am tomorrow (Wednesday).
I think it's a course suitable for big hitters, so good, but I heard the rough was very high. So I will have to try to play pretty straight. I really want to play the Majors, starting with the Masters. You have to be well established in the top 50 in the world and I'm getting there.
This is one of my first goals this year. Afterwards, I aim for the top 30, the top 25 by the end of the year". The Pga Tour is an organization that curates major professional golf tours in the United States. It is based in Ponte Vedra Beach, a suburb of Jacksonville, Florida.
Its official name is written in all capital letters, i.e. "PGA TOUR". The PGA Tour became its own organization in 1968, when it split from the PGA of America, which is now primarily an association of golf professionals, such as instructors and club managers.
Tournament players first formed their own organization, the Association of Professional Golfers (APG). Later, in 1968, the players abolished the APG and agreed to operate as the PGA "Tournament Players Division", a fully autonomous division of the PGA, overseen by a new 10-member Tournament Policy Board.
The name then officially changed to "PGA Tour" in 1975. In 1981, it had a marketing dispute with the PGA of America and decided to officially change its name. From the end of August of that year it becomes "TPA Tour", which stands for "Tournament Players Association".
The dispute was resolved within seven months and the name of the tour reverted to being "PGA Tour" in March 1982.
