Bae swings back into action after military service at Shinhan Donghae Open

Incheon, Korea, September 13: Korea’s Sangmoon Bae will be aiming to come up tops against a power-packed field in his first professional tournament at the Shinhan Donghae Open since being discharged from military service last month.
Bae, a three-time Asian Tour winner, who has also won twice on the PGA TOUR, is excited to return to competitive golf after having limited playing opportunities in the army.
His last professional tournament was in 2015, when he played at the Presidents Cup.
Bae spent two years as a rifleman in the army and will be looking to fire on all cylinders when he tees off at the Bear’s Best Cheongna Golf Club on Thursday.
Korea’s Yikuen Chang is also expected to put up a strong challenge for the Shinhan Donghae Open title following a record-breaking win on the domestic tour last weekend.
Playing in Korea for the first time in four years, David Lipsky of the United States is determined to put up a strong performance as he seeks to return to the top of the Order of Merit after being dislodged by Australia’s Scott Hend over the weekend.
