Lee So-young, who swallowed regret while looking at the sky in Singapore, Park Hyun-kyung, challenged to win in Vietnam

Lee So-young (25) and Park Hyeon-kyung (22) were the players who left the biggest disappointment at the Hana Financial Group Singapore Women’s Open last week, when the final round was canceled due to bad weather.

Lee So-young and Park Hyeon-kyung tied for second place by one stroke at the tournament that ended at Tanah Merah CC in Singapore on the 11th. They shot a total of 10 under par 132 strokes until the second round, chasing leader Park Ji-young (26) to the bottom of their chin, but lost the opportunity to turn around and finished runner-up as the final round was canceled due to rain and lightning.

Those who finished the opening game with a sad heart will try again to win the PLK Pacific Rings Korea Championship (total prize money of 700 million won), the second tournament of the season to be held for three days at Twin Doves GC (par 72, 6549 yards) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam from the 16th.

This competition is an overseas competition held in Vietnam three years after the Hyosung Championship (December 2019) held as the opening game of the 2020 season. 88 regular members of the KLPGA tour, 3 members of the Vietnam Golf Association, and 5 recommended players compete for a prize of 126 million won.

Lee So-young is considered the strongest candidate for the championship. Lee So-young, who has won six regular tours in even-numbered years since 2016, won runner-up in the 2018 tournament held at Twin Doves GC and placed fourth in the 2019 tournament, showing a strong shot sense last week as well.

“When she played at Twin Doves Golf Course, she always had good iron shots,” she said. It is difficult to play the greens, but if you attack the greens well, you can achieve good results,” said Lee So-young.

Park Hyun-kyung took the lead by hitting a 7-under-par 65 on the first day of the opening game last week, but it was regrettable that she took a breather with a 3-under-par 69 in the second round. Even if he cut one more stroke on the second day, it was possible to play an overtime game in a competition that was shortened due to bad weather. Park Hyeon-gyeong, who has been silent since winning two consecutive victories and three career victories at the KLPGA Championship last year (May), is desperate for one win to wash away her long thirst for victory. 토토

Last week’s winner Park Ji-young, 2022 season’s 6th win Park Min-ji, and grand prize winner Kim Su-ji do not participate in this competition. Although major championship candidates have been left out, the heat is still hot as 11 winners of the 2022 season participate and strong players such as Park Hyun-kyung and Jang Ha-na, who are thirsty for the championship, are eager.

Jo Ah-yeon and Lee So-mi, who won two wins each in the 2022 season, Lim Hee-jung, the winner of the Korean Women’s Open, Lee Ga-young, who finally won her first championship in her life, and match queen Hong Jung-min are considered as major championship candidates. Hwang Yoo-min, a former member of the national team who played overtime against Park Min-ji at the NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship last year, will also debut on her first regular tour as a regular member.
