Park Min-ji, who awakened the ‘winning instinct’, challenges to regain the top of the Korea Women’s Open

Park Min-ji (25, NH Investment & Securities), the ‘signboard star’ of the Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) tour, who reported 6 wins each for 2 consecutive years, did not show an image worthy of her reputation at the beginning of this season. She struggled because she failed to report wins in the six tournaments she entered, and was even humiliated by missing the cut at the Charity Open at the end of May. Park Min-ji, who complained of this, refined her shot again and showed off her presence again by climbing to the top of her next competition, the Celltrion Queen’s Masters, recording a record of her third consecutive victory.메이저놀이터

Park Min-ji, who awakened her “her winning instinct,” will participate in the DB Group Korea Women’s Open (total prize money of 1.2 billion won) opening at Rainbow Hills Country Club (par 72) in Eumseong-gun, Chungcheongbuk-do on the 15th and challenge to recapture her national title. Park Min-ji, the 2021 Korean Women’s Open champion, challenged for a second consecutive victory last year, but ended up competing for the championship and ended up in 3rd place, leaving regret. Accordingly, she is determined to regain her title this year. Moreover, she shows great confidence in her 2nd consecutive win as she completely regained her winning sense by coming to the top with an eagle putt in the Celltrion Queens Masters overtime on the 11th. In addition, it matches the course well enough to win and runner-up in the Korean Women’s Open held twice on the course of this tournament. Park Min-ji recorded a fairway landing rate of 85.7% and a green accuracy rate of 80.9% at the Celltrion Queens Masters. If Park Min-ji, who is recording 17 wins, wins this tournament, she will come close to the record of Koo Ok-hee and Shin Ji-ae (20 wins), tied for first place in most wins. She also tied for third place (four wins) in major tournaments with Soonmi Kim, Hana Jang, and Hyojoo Kim.

Lim Hee-jeong (23, Doosan E&C), who won last year’s tournament by setting a record for the fewest strokes (19 under par, 269 strokes), is aiming for a second consecutive victory. Ko Woo-soon, Kim Mi-hyeon, Kang Su-yeon and Song Bo-bae were the only players who won the Korean Women’s Open twice in a row, and 2003-2004 was the last. However, Lim Hee-jung’s performance is so poor that she has entered the top 10 only three times in 12 competitions this year. It remains to be seen whether she will regain her sense of play in this competition, especially after her poor performance of ‘cut out -53rd -69th’ in her recent three competitions.
