These days, 19-year-old rookie ‘Bang Sin-sil’, who is known for her incredible long hits, is a hot topic in domestic women’s golf. There was an unexpected story behind his rebirth as a long hitter.
Reporter Kim Young-seong met.
19-year-old Bang Shin-sil, who debuted on the regular tour this year, immediately caught the attention of the fans with an exciting long hit of 270m and 300 yards.
[Bang Shin-sil (19 years old, 173cm): Every time I hit, I get a lot of cheers, but I think I’m excited and thrilled too.] In the

[Bang Shin-sil: It’s so amazing that a lot of people recognize me.]
There was a big ordeal behind the splendid long hit.
Two years ago, while playing for the national team, he was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and faced the biggest crisis of his career as he lost 10kg and suffered extreme fatigue.
[Bangshinsil: I’m sorry. I suffered a lot. It was hard with no results.]
Now he is almost completely cured, but the secret to increasing his distance was correcting him with a swing that reduced his stamina consumption during the fight against the disease.
[Bang Shin-sil: Before that, I used to swing with my arm, but now I changed it to a ‘hip-turn’ swing, so I think the distance has increased a lot.]
On top of that, last winter, while focusing on training to increase swing speed, Bang Shin-sil’s long hits became even more powerful.
Bang Sin-sil will challenge for the first championship again at the Doosan Match Play Championship, which will be held tomorrow (17th).
[Bangshinsil: I want to go up to the maximum I can go up. The goal is to reach the finals.
