A red light was turned on for the performance of the Hanwha Life Plus International Crown, a women’s golf national competition that will open on the 5th (Korean time).
This is because the main member of the British team, which is expected to be a strong candidate for the championship, will not participate, along with the Korean team, which is winning the tournament for the second time in a row.
England notified the LPGA Tour on the 2nd, three days before the start of the tournament, that 10th-ranked Georgia Hall and 18th-ranked Charlie Hull would step down from the national team and Alice Hewson and Liz Young would play as substitutes.
Hall is a signboard of British women’s golf, which won the 2020 Portland Classic following the 2018 British Women’s Open. Although she has no championships this year, she has four ‘Top 10’ finishes, including two runner-up finishes.ㅋㅋㅋ벳
Hull is also a talented player who has won two LPGA tours including the Volunteers of America Classic last year.
It is true that Hewson, who played as a pinch hitter, is 178th in the world rankings, and Young is 222nd, weaker than Hull and Hall. Existing representatives, 49th in the world rankings, Jody Uert Shadowoff and 116th, Bronte Law, will participate as scheduled.
The reason for the two players’ absence is because of poor physical condition. Hall is caused by foot pain and Hull by gastrointestinal disorders. The two players said, “I’m sorry to the tournament organizers and colleagues. I wish the British team good luck.”
