INCHEON, South Korea (AP) -- Sangmoon Bae's first round of tournament golf after a compulsory stint in the South Korean army was a 3-over 74 Thursday in the opening round of the Asian Tour's Donghae Open.

Bae was 3-over after his first nine holes on the par-71 Bear's Best Cheongna Golf Club. After two birdies and a bogey early on the back nine, he bogeyed the par-3 17th to put him back to 3-over, seven strokes behind the clubhouse leaders.

Bae, whose last pro tournament was at the 2015 Presidents Cup in South Korea, was discharged from military service in August after spending almost two years as a rifleman.

He won the U.S. PGA Tour's Byron Nelson Championship in 2013 and the Frys.com Open in 2014.
