At the official press conference of the tournament on the 27th, Ko Jin-young said, “This course (Wilshire Country Club) has been played for a long time, and it is not unfamiliar because the sponsor has changed.

Grades are important, but I believe that results vary depending on how much I focus on myself, so I focus on myself. And playing as stress-free as possible is the most important goal in the long run.”

Wilshire Country Club is where the Los Angeles Open was held in the past. Ko Jin-young finished runner-up at the Hugel JTBC LA Open held at Wilshire Country Club in 2018 and tied for third at the Hugel Air Premia LA Open in 2021. Regarding the course, Ko Jin-young emphasized, “I think it’s important to put it on the green. When you make a mistake on the green, there are so many tricky situations that you need to concentrate when attacking the green.”

Ko Jin-young, who set the goal of finding a swing he was satisfied with rather than his performance at the start of this season, seems to have gained confidence in his swing recently. He said, “Before starting this year, I thought about whether I could freely express the level of swing I was aiming for on the course in the first half. Still, compared to the past few years, I’m swinging with the most confidence.” He said, “I know how to do (swing) well. JTBC Golf plans to broadcast the first round of this tournament live from 7:30 am on the 28th.
