‘First season’ Heo In-hoe in front of his son… “I want to win the KPGA Championship”
This year, Heo In-hoe will hold the 16th season of the Korean Tour. This year, we are waiting for the opening with a special heart. It is because of the ‘son’ who was born in the world last month.
Heo In-hoe laughed, “I was busy preparing for the season and taking care of my children. When I came to my senses, I was surprised that the opening was not far away.” I’m already excited about this. I hope the season starts soon.”
He intends to make his son enter the path of a golf player like himself. Heo In-hoe said, “I will create an environment so that you can get familiar with golf and feel interest when you start walking,” and “I plan to give lessons myself if possible. I am confident.”
Heo In-hoe won 23 victories during his amateur days. He last entered the tour in 2008 and has 5 career wins. In 2014, he won the Japan Tour Doshin Golf Tournament with a final total of 28 under par and 260 strokes. It was a victory achieved by setting the record for the lowest number of strokes in 72 holes of the Japan Tour. That year, it ranked first in average drive distance in Korea and Japan. He became the first player to be crowned the long hit king in both countries at the same time.
His most recent win was the 2021 GS Caltex Maekyung Open. Last year, I couldn’t lift the trophy. However, he made it to 21 events, pre-season events. The average number of putts when hitting the green was 1.67. Following 2021 (1.71), it ranked first in this category for two consecutive years.
Heo In-hoe said, “I think putts are always lacking, so the amount of practice is the most. I will be able to play,” he said.
