A hole-in-one was made two days in a row at the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour SK Telecom Open. The second main character is Jung Han-mil, who made her 2017 debut.

In the 5th hole (par 3) of the 2nd round of the tournament held at the Pinx Golf Club (par 71) in Seogwipo, Jeju Island on the 19th, Jung Han-mil saved two strokes at once when the ball hit with the 5-iron went straight into the hole. 

Jeong Han-mil, who recorded the first hole-in-one as a professional at this tournament in 2017, set a unique record of catching a hole-in-one at the same tournament six years later. At the time he recorded his first hole-in-one, the venue was Sky 72 (now Club 72).
