Park Min-ji, challenge for 3 consecutive wins in a single competition… Park Bo-gyeom is aiming for the championship for two weeks in a row

 Park Min-ji (25), who achieved two consecutive victories in prize money last year, challenges the NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship (total prize money of 800 million won) in the Korea Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour for three consecutive victories.

The NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship will be held at Suwon Country Club (par 72) in Yongin City, Gyeonggi Province for three days from the 12th.

All the players representing the KLPGA tour this year are participating and attracting attention. Following the 2021 season, Park Min-ji, who had the best year last year by winning 6 wins in the season, will compete as the defending champion for the second year in a row and aim to win the same competition for the third year in a row. In the history of the KLPGA, only four people have the record of winning the same tournament three times in a row, starting with the late Ok-hee Koo, Soo-yeon Kang (47), Se-ri Pak (46), and Hae-rim Kim (34).

Park Bo-gyeom (25), who tasted the joy of winning for the first time in his life when he lifted the championship cup three years after his tour debut last week, is aiming for the championship for two weeks in a row. Park Bo-gyeom said through KLPGA, “I was happy to win last week, but I tried not to be excited. I will work harder because I have clearly seen the points to be supplemented,” he said. “Suwon Country Club is a golf course with fast and difficult greens. We plan to play as a strategy to make as many birdie chances as possible by making as many uphill putts as possible.”

Last season, he participated in this tournament as an amateur recommended player and competed for the championship with Park Min-ji and finished runner-up. .안전놀이터

As a rookie, Hwang Yoo-min, who participated in 7 competitions this season and succeeded in passing the cut, steadily accumulating points for the rookie award, said, “I did well last year, but I have a lot of regretful memories. Still, I want to collect good memories from last year and lift the championship trophy this year with similar strategies and plays.”

Hwang Yoo-min said, “I felt that the deviation was a little big when shot mistakes came out through the 7 competitions so far. In this tournament, I will focus on that part, and I will also focus on the short game around the green so that I can make up for missed shots, and I will get better results than last year.”

In addition, Park Ji-young (27), Lee Da-yeon (26), Park Hyun-kyung (23), Lee So-young (26), and Lee Ye-won (20), who are in the top 10 in the prize money list, will participate.

The determination of players sponsored by NH Investment & Securities is also unique. Along with Lee Ga-young (24), who is recording a total of 1 win each on the KLPGA Tour, and Jung Yun-ji (23), are set to win 2 career wins in tournaments held by the main sponsor, Kim Hye-seung, who joined the KLPGA in June last year and is active on the Dream Tour ( 20) was scheduled to participate in the main event as a sponsor’s recommendation. In addition, Lee Bo-mi (35), the permanent seed on the KLPGA tour, is attracting attention as she has been playing for the first time in a long time since last season’s final SK Shielders and SK Telecom Championships.

Super rookies such as Kim Min-byeol (19), who is currently in first place in rookie award points, Hwang Yu-min in second place, and Li Shuing (19) in third place, are also challenging their first championship.
