Chan-min Jeong, who received the prize money of 300 million won, quickly rose to the top of the prize money rankings (305.92 million won). Chan-min Jeong was famous for his long hits since his amateur days, but his accuracy was poor and he had good results in the tournament
. This season, he is at the top of the average distance (341 yards, 5th place), but his fairway landing rate (37.5%, 101st place) is the lowest on the Korean Tour. So, he made his debut on the Korean Tour last year, but he did not achieve remarkable results

In an interview after the win, Jeong Chan-min said, “Last winter, I intensively practiced the short game around the green and changed my putter before the game. It seems to have produced good results.” I think I will be able to play more comfortably in the future.” Even compared to the PGA, the distance is not inferior, he added, “I plan to go to the Korn Ferry Tour in September or October this year.”
The second place went to Lee Jeong-hwan and Song Min-hyeok, who finished with a final total of 10 under par and 203 strokes. Amateur national team member Song Min-hyeok caught 7 birdies without a bogey and won the runner-up, continuing the amateur sensation that hit the KPGA this season. Last year’s champion, Kim Bio, competed for the championship by catching three birdies in the first half, but made three bogeys in the second half and finished the tournament tied for 6th place (final total of 8 under par, 205 strokes).
