Lee, who started playing screen golf in 2009, has a unique history of learning golf on his own without any separate lessons. Since he had no one to teach him, he went through a lot of trial and error, but he said that he developed his current skills by activating the desire to compete that he had cultivated while enjoying sports. Before he knew it, he became a powerful player who won two national championships and nine provincial championships.
He, who currently runs a screen golf course, said about the charm of golf, “It is unconquerable.” Mr. Lee said, “Even amateur masters who play under par don’t hit the ball well after taking a few days off. Since there is no end to learning, it seems like I have been doing it for a long time,” he explained.
As golf becomes more and more popular, more and more people are learning golf in recent years. Lee Shin-soo said to golf beginners, “It is important to play steadily even for 10 minutes a day,” and “In addition, you can reduce the number of strokes by accurately understanding your shot, such as launch angle, ball speed, and backspin, through screen golf.” Advised.
