‘Challenge for the first title defense’ Jung Yoon-ji “E1 Charity Open reminds me of myself”

Jung Yun-ji (23) will defend her title for the first time on the Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) tour.

Jung Yun-ji will participate as the defending champion in the KLPGA Tour E1 Charity Open (total prize money of 900 million won) held at Seongmunan Country Club (par 72) in Wonju-si, Gangwon-do for three days from the 26th.

Last year, he won the E1 Charity Open held in South Springs, Icheon-si, Gyeonggi-do, after a 5th round of overtime. Recording his first victory in the tournament, he set a strong aspiration to win two consecutive losses and his second career victory at the same time.

Jung Yun-ji said, “It’s my first tournament as a defending champion, so I feel pressured and excited. Last year, when I won the 5th overtime, many people recognized and supported me, which has been a big help to me. That’s why my first win last year was a big deal for me. It has meaning,” he recalled.

He continued, “To be honest, I’m not good at putts these days. In this tournament, I plan to play with the most attention on putting distance. I know that defending the title is really difficult. But, if you think of the ‘E1 Charity Open’, I will play a good game so that you can think of Yunji Jung. I will open it,” he promised.안전놀이터

Jung Yoon-ji, who placed 13th at the Lotte Rent-A-Car Women’s Open, the opening match in Korea this year, took 8th at the Mediheal and Hankook Ilbo Championships, and ranked 9th at the Kyochon 1991 Ladies Open, making it to the top 10. After her victory, attention is focused on whether Jung Yun-ji, who is constantly showing off her skills, will succeed in her second consecutive victory.

In addition to Jung Yun-ji, two foreign players will participate in this tournament. Along with Choi Hye-jin (24), who is active on the LPGA tour, Ryu So-yeon (34) is recommended as a player. Kim Bo-gyeong (37), the first champion, will also be there.

Choi Hye-jin participated in the Hana Financial Group Singapore Women’s Open, the opening game of the 2023 season held last year, and tied for 18th place. Attention is focusing on whether she can add a multiplier after 2 years and 5 months on the KLPGA tour. Choi Hye-jin’s last KLPGA Tour victory was the SK Telecom ADT Caps Championship in November 2020.
