Bae Sang-moon, who was dragged by Bill Haas of the United States by one hole until the 17th hole, sent his second shot to the front of the green at the 18th hole (par 5). Haas’ ball fell into the greenside bunker. Bae Sang-moon was in an advantageous situation to win the hole, but a mistake came out on the third shot. He tried to put the ball close to the hole with his approach, but made an absurd mistake of hitting the ground, and eventually lost by two holes, giving Haas a hole. The international team’s chance to draw was also blown away.

Bae Sang-moon looked back on the day’s game and said, “The 18th hole at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea is the ‘Bae Sang-moon’ hole.” I said to my caddy, ‘I need to get revenge today’. The shots were similar, and I had a lot of thoughts about the old days.”
Bae Sang-moon, who made up for his mistake eight years ago with a birdie, made 3 birdies that day, but made 4 bogeys and finished the game first with a 1-over-par 73 and an interim total of 2-under-par 142. The expected cutoff was even par, virtually confirming advances to the finals.
