Suktem, who participated in this tournament and competed with Korean players, said, “I was nervous to play with Korean players and I also had a competitive spirit to win.” “The match today was special and a new experience.” “The swing was stable and the consistency was very good,” he said. “Above all, it was impressive that he showed an aggressive tendency in green play. In any situation, the strategy of directly attacking the pin stood out. He seemed different from my way of playing, which was a par save strategy to avoid mistakes,” he said, expressing his impressions of playing against a Korean player.
