‘It was a game of pleasure, joy’October 31, 2022
I often play golf, but this is the first time for me to compete with many people.
I have never thought that such young amateurs and women would play very well, though I have played golf for over ten years.
I hope that I will meet them more frequently in the future.
I feel ten years younger while playing golf together with young people at the Pyongyang Golf Course which boasts a beautiful landscape as Lake Thaesong and Mt Sokchon go well with each other.

I have taken part in a amateur golf tournament for the first time.
As many amateur golfers gathered, I felt more competitive and had to strike each ball so carefully.
I only decided to have a try, and I have taken the first place.
I offer my gratitude for providing this excellent contest in which any amateur can take part.

This is the first time I played the doubles.
As everyone else would do, I thought much how my partner and I could play the game well with one accord.
It was a difficult game, but I took the first place.
What is most delightful is that I have reached a handicap of 70 for the first time during this contest.
I want to play better in the future.
I hope that more people would participate in this contest.
