“Last year, I struggled mentally with my tee shots,” said Jae Han Jae, “and I’ve been working hard to improve and recover from that. My tee shots are starting to catch and my mentality is stronger. I’m slowly getting back on track,” he said.

“I want to get back on the KPGA Tour, and I think I’m one step closer with this win,” he continued, “There’s still a lot of season left, but I’ll do my best to be consistent in the remaining events. Becoming a ‘steady player’ is my goal as a golfer,” said Park.
