First day report
South Korea’s Byeong Hun An won a 64-under-par eight and led the Jiuqiao CJ Cup in Jeju Island, making the locals happy.

In a round of eight birds, there is no bogey, one lead Chilean Joaquin Niemann, former world number one Jason Day is further advanced by 66 behind.

Defending champion Brooks Koepka is five shots behind, British Ian Poulter and Tyrrell Hatton and Norwegian Victor Hoffland (Viktor Hovland) ) A 69-point game, the latter created a new PGA Tour record in the 18th round in the 1960s.

Koepka’s erratic round consists of four small birds with 18 holes and five holes, three bogeys and one eagle. The world’s number one player said: “You just need to clean up some things and miss a few short putters. There was some sloppyness there, but except I thought I was playing very well.

“Today’s wind is too light, it feels like switching a lot, and it has changed in several holes.

“To be honest, I think it’s easier to blow this golf course. If you blow a little, the wind is more consistent.”

Day hopes that international team captain Ernie Els will provide him with a wild card for the President’s Cup in Royal Melbourne in December. He caught six birds in a bogey-free 66 shot. To improve the chances of winning.

The Australian said: “Of course, not letting the team rely on my own achievements is disappointing, but this reminds us that nothing is given to you in this game.”

“Of course I want to be a member of the team and believe that I can become an asset in international competitions. I have definitely given me an advantage in my home country, and in the past I have had some success at Sands Stadium and Royal Melbourne.”
