Ahn Byung-hoon, who will participate in the 2nd Olympics

“If you don’t make it in the top three, it means nothing.”

Ahn Byung-hoon (33, CJ), who was criticized at the Olympics eight years ago, expressed his determination to win a medal in the second Olympics.

“I really want to win an Olympic medal this year,” Ahn Byung-hoon said in a video press conference with a domestic media company on the evening of the 9th.

Ahn ranked 27th in the men’s golf world rankings announced on July 17, ranking second among Korean golfers after Kim Joo-hyung (26th at the time), and secured the berth to participate in the Paris Olympics. It is his second participation since the 2016 Rio Olympics. At that time, he tied for 11th and could not win a medal.

Ahn Jae-hyung, former coach of the Korean national team who is the father of Ahn Byung-hoon and won the bronze medal for the men’s table tennis team at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, said, “At that time, Ahn seemed very nervous as he experienced a big competition in his 20s. Eight years later, however, he is different now. He must have gained diverse experiences by participating in many competitions and learned how to overcome the tension of big competitions.”

This year, Ahn is in a good mood. He played in 17 PGA Tour events this year, ranking second once and ranking fifth in the top 10. He was also ranked in the top 25 nine times. He failed to make the cut only three times. His world ranking also jumped from 60th to 27th last year, and his FedEx points ranking rose to 10th. Ahn said, “I want to continue this trend throughout the Olympics.

“It’s an honor to participate in the Olympics again. It’s good to represent Korea,” Ahn said. “If I play my golf without feeling too much pressure, I will have a chance (to win a medal).” “There is nothing to prepare for the Olympics differently. You have to go and prepare well. I think I will be able to win a medal if I prepare well, which is not a course that I take every year.”

The men’s golf tournament will be held at the National Olympic Course of Le Golf from August 1 for four days. “I played at the French Open more than 10 years ago and have never experienced it since then,” Ahn said. “It’s a new course, so I think it’s different from other competitions. 토토사이트 꽁머니 I think I need to prepare well.” “It’s meaningless if I don’t finish in the top three in the Olympics. I will definitely win a medal,” Ahn said.

Prior to the Olympics, Ahn Byung-hoon will participate in the Scottish Open, which opens on the 11th, and the British Open, a major tournament, on the 18th. “I want to play well in this tournament and maintain a good shot sense until the Olympics and FedEx Championship,” Ahn Byung-hoon said, expressing his determination to participate in the tournament.
