On the first day of the Doosan Match Play Championship (total prize money of 900 million won), the only match play competition on the KLPGA Tour, defending champion Jeong-min Hong and long hitter Bang Sin-sil of a different class will face off.
This tournament, which will be held at Ladena Country Club (par 72) in Chuncheon, Gangwon-do for five days from the 17th, will be held in a way that the side with fewer strokes wins each hole. Out of a total of 18 holes, the game is decided by who takes more holes. Unlike other competitions held in the stroke play format, you can win the championship by winning one-on-one matches every time. A maximum of 7 matches in 5 days, including three group matches, round of 16, round of 8, round of 4, and final, require strong physical strength and mental strength. And great luck is important.
At the group lottery held on the 16th, the brackets for 64 players this year were determined. Players within the 60th place in last year’s prize money rankings and the top rankers in this season’s prize money rankings were named. The group lottery is a method in which the seeded players in each group select three players to form their own group.메이저사이트
