Kim Dong-min saved 1 stroke by tying 5 birdies, 2 bogeys, and 1 double bogey, while Kim Min-joon took 2 birdies, but lost 2 strokes due to 4 bogies, for a total of 4 under par, 212 strokes.

He has yet to win the Korean Tour, but his best performance was last year’s runner-up at the Golf John-Toray Open. Reducing the number of strokes amid strong winds was the driving force that led the team on the day.

Park Eun-shin (33), Bae Yong-joon (23), Lee Jae-won (25), and national representative Jang Yu-bin (21), who tied for the lead until the second round, played in the last group with the strongest wind and the group right in front of them, losing 7 strokes each and tied for 10th place ( It fell to even par 216 strokes).
Ahn Seong-hyun, a junior high school amateur who is not yet 14 years old, maintained an even par score that day and raised the ranking to a tie for 16th place (1 over par 217 strokes).
