‘Defending Champ’ Jung-Min Hong advances to the quarterfinals of Match Play… Aiming for 2 consecutive victories in the tournament

‘Defending champion’ Jeong-min Hong (21, CJ) reached the semifinals at the Doosan Match Play Championship (total prize money of 900 million won) on the Korea Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour, aiming for a second consecutive victory.

In the round of 16 of the tournament held at Ladena Country Club (par 72, 6350 yards) in Chuncheon, Gangwon Province on the 20th, Hong Jeong-min won by 4 holes, leaving 2 holes to Ji Han-sol (27, Dongbu Construction).

In the quarterfinals that followed in the afternoon, veteran Ahn Seon-ju (36, National Beef) left two holes and won three holes ahead, advancing to the semifinals.

Hong Jung-min, who won the first tour championship last year, is aiming for a second consecutive victory. Since 2008, there has never been a case where she has achieved two consecutive victories in this competition.

In the first game of the group stage, Bang Shin-sil (19, KB Financial Group) was caught by the tail, but after two games, he won overtime against Bang Shin-sil and advanced to the round of 16.

In the following round of 16, Hong Jung-min, who took advantage of Ji Han-sol’s hunting difficulties and won an easy victory, continued his momentum in the quarter-finals.

Hong Jung-min took the lead with consecutive birdies on the 2nd hole (par 5) and 3rd hole (par 4), then added a birdie on the 6th hole (par 5) to take the lead by 3 holes.

Hong Jung-min, who maintained the gap, virtually split the game with a birdie on the 12th hole (par 5). The 15th hole (par 4) was given and the gap was 3 holes, but the 16th hole (par 3) ended with a draw.

Hong Jung-min said after the match, “The feeling of putting is getting better. There were a lot of misses in the game on the first day of losing, but I’m gradually reducing the error.” I will play while squeezing my strength,” he said.

Hong Jung-min’s opponent in the semifinals is Seong Yu-jin (23, Hanwha Q Cells). Seong Yu-jin defeated Lim Hee-jung (23, Doosan E&C) by one hole in the round of 16, and won a landslide victory over Yoo Seo-yeon 2 (20, BHC) by 6 holes in the quarterfinals with 5 holes left.

Seong Yu-jin won 5 consecutive wins, including all 3 wins in the group stage, and settled in the semifinals.

Seong Yu-jin, who finished runner-up last month at the Lotte Championships on the LPGA Tour, is aiming for her first win on the KLPGA Tour this season.

Seong Yu-jin said, “I was worried because I had a left thumb injury, but I forgot the pain while playing.” I will work hard,” he said.

Another match in the quarterfinals was narrowed down to Park Hyeon-gyeong (23, Korea Land Trust) and Na Hee-won (29, High1 Resort).카지노사이트

In the round of 16, Park Hyeon-gyeong defeated Park Ji-young (27, Korea Land Trust), who is running the KLPGA Tour Grand Prize and the prize money this season, and beat Noh Seung-hee (22, Yojin Construction) in the quarterfinals.

Na Hee-won beat Madasom (24, Samchully) in the round of 16, and then defeated Han Jin-seon (26, Kakao VX) in the quarterfinals after a third overtime fight.

Na Hee-won, the only one of those who made it to the semifinals and yet to win, was aiming for her first win in her 160th appearance in the event.
