“I want to achieve good results as this is my first tournament.” (Jeon In-ji)
“I’m looking forward to this year, I’ll try to win 2 wins.” (Kim Hyo-joo)
The Siam Country Club Pattaya Old Course, Chonburi, Thailand for four days from the 23rd (Korean time) Korean players are determined to compete in the LPGA Honda LPGA Thailand held at par 72).
Since no Korean players appeared in the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions, the season opener held last month, this tournament is virtually the same as the season opener for Korean female golfers.
At the beginning of the season, a total of 12 Korean players voted to lift the championship trophy. Along with Ko Jin-young, who returned to the field after a wrist injury, world ranking ‘top 10’ players such as Jeon In-ji and Kim Hyo-joo, and players who can win the championship at any time, such as Choi Hye-jin, Kim Se-young, Kim A-rim, and Lee Jeong-eun, will also participate. Yang Hee-young, who won 3 wins in this competition alone, aims for ‘4 wins in the competition’, and Ji Eun-hee, Choi Woon-jung, Shin Ji-eun, and Anna Lin also announce the season opening here.
Their shoulders are heavy. Korean female golfers, who commanded the world’s women’s golf world, had a difficult time last year with only four victories. In addition, since Jeon In-ji won the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, a major tournament in June of last year, she has not won a single win in 17 tournaments. In the meantime, all Korean golfers have been pushed back in the world rankings, with Ko Jin-young (5th) the highest.
Of course, all the players who participated in the first competition this season are full of motivation.
In particular, Jeon In-ji, who won the most recent championship among Korean players, said, “I focused on making up for the parts I lacked during winter training. I played 9 holes almost every day to maintain the sense of the game.” I think I will have to adapt to the weather by drinking a lot. As this is my first tournament, I have a desire to get good results.” Jeon’s goal this season is the ‘Career Grand Slam’. “While spending the winter in Korea, I felt that many people supported the Grand Slam. It is true that I am greedy,” said Jeon In-ji, who confessed, “I will do my best in the tournament so that I can be a little more responsible for what I said.” . 메이저사이트
Hyo-joo Kim, who won the Lotte Championship last year and was named in the top 10 eight times, is also a treasure trove.
Kim Hyo-joo said, “Since I prepared hard in the winter, I think I’m starting this season with high expectations for myself.” “If you’re a player, you have to win. Last year, I won once, but this year, I’m greedy for two wins. I want to see it. I have no other goals. I prepared with the goal of winning only.”
In addition, it is of interest whether Choi Hye-jin, who performed well last year but did not win, and Yoo Hae-ran, who entered the top of the team through the qualifying school this season, will have the championship trophy. The resurrection of Ko Jin-young, who was called ‘invincible’, is also a point to watch in this tournament. Ko Jin-young said, “I started practicing as soon as the season ended at the end of last year. It’s not perfect yet, but I’ve improved a lot.”
