CHEONAN, South Korea, Oct. 20 (Yonhap) -- South Korean Kang Sung-hoon captured the national men's golf championship here on Sunday, aided in part by penalty strokes imposed on his rival.
Kang took the Kolon Korea Open at 4-under 280, after shooting a 2-under 69 at the par-71 Woo Jeong Hills Country Club in Cheonan, about 90 kilometers south of Seoul. He cashed in 300 million won ($US282,900) in the winner's check.
Kang had also won the CJ Invitational, a domestic tour event hosted by the South Korean PGA Tour veteran Choi Kyoung-ju, a week earlier.
