Park Min-ji, NH Investment & Securities Ladies Cup 3 consecutive wins + hunting for the first win of the season.. “I will fill 2%”

 ‘Trendy’ Park Min-ji (25, NH Investment & Securities) challenges to win three consecutive championships in a single tournament on the Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) tour.

Park Min-ji will participate in the 2023 NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship (total prize money of 800 million won) held at Suwon Country Club (par 72, 6586 yards) in Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do for three days from the 12th to her first win of the season and defense of the title.

If Park Min-ji, the winner of 2021 and last year, succeeds in winning three consecutive wins, it will set the fifth record in KLPGA tour history, following the late Ok-hee Koo, Soo-yeon Kang (47), Se-ri Pak (46), and Hae-rim Kim (34).

Park Min-ji, who had the best year in the 2021/22 season by winning 6 wins for 2 consecutive years, is improving her condition by entering the top 10 twice in 4 competitions this season. Last week, she participated in the World Ladies Championship Salonpas Cup, the first major tournament of the 2023 season of the Japan Women’s Professional Golf (JLPGA) Tour, and tied for 20th, adjusting her shot sense.

Hosted by her sponsor, NH Investment & Securities, and participating as the defending champion for the second year in a row, Park Min-ji starts winning again in this tournament full of her good memories.

He said, “It is an honor to challenge her record. As the main sponsor, NH Investment & Securities, is holding the event, I am even more greedy.”

He continued, “My condition and shot sense aren’t bad, but I feel like I’m missing something by 2%, so I’m constantly trying to fill that part and improve it. I think it will be filled soon, but I hope it will be filled in this competition.”

Hwang Yoo-min (20, Lotte), who competed with Park Min-ji for the championship last year as an invited amateur player and finished runner-up by one stroke, is drawing attention to whether he will once again compete for the championship as a rookie on the professional stage. Hwang Yoo-min, with a hot long drive of 3rd in driving distance (253 yards), passed the cut in all six KLPGA tour events this season.

He said, “I did well last year, but I have a lot of regretful memories. Still, I want to collect good memories from last year and lift the championship trophy this year with similar strategies and plays,” he said. “I will focus on short games around the green and get better results than last year.”

Lee Da-yeon (26, Mediheal), who overcame a wrist injury and won the first major championship of the season, the Chris F&C KLPGA Championship, and revived, took a break from the Kyochon Honey Ladies Open last week to win two consecutive tournaments.

Park Bo-gyeom (25, Angang Construction), who tasted a hole-in-one and first victory in his career at the Kyochon Honey Ladies Open three years after his tour debut, aims to win for two weeks in a row.

Park Ji-young (27, Korea Land Trust), 1st in prize money ranking, Lee Ye-won (20, KB Financial Group), champion of the opening game in Korea, Lee So-young (26, Lotte), 1st in grand prize points without winning, and Park Hyun-kyung (23, Korea Land Trust), 3rd in prize money ranking They are also formidable contenders to stop Park Min-ji from losing three consecutive games.메이저사이트

The activity also attracts attention.

Lee Bo-mi (35), a permanent seed on the KLPGA Tour, will appear in a domestic competition after a long time since last season’s final SK Shielders-SK Telecom Championship 2022.
