Uniform number in golf… “Like Emperor Jordan” Choi Hye-jin No. 23
The LPGA Tour’s “Hanwha Life Plus International Crown,” which will be held at TPC Harding Park (par 72) in San Francisco, California, for four days from the 5th, will feature unique scenes that cannot be seen in other tour events. In this competition, which is a national competition, players compete in uniforms with their uniform numbers engraved on them.ㅋㅋㅋ벳
The jersey numbers chosen by the players participating in this competition have their own stories. Jeon In-ji (29), the eldest member of the Korean national team, chose number 8. Jeon In-ji, who was born in August, put her career number of wins (8) in major tours in Korea, the United States and Japan on her uniform number. Kim Hyo-joo (28) chose number 10 because she likes Lionel Messi, the ‘god of soccer’. Messi wears number 10 for the Argentina national team. Choi Hye-jin (24), the youngest member of the national team, wore number 23 on her back, worn by “basketball emperor” Michael Jordan when he was a player. Ko Jin-young (28), born on July 7, chose number 7.
In Korea’s first group match (four-ball match) against Australia on the 5th, Jeon In-ji and Choi Hye-jin will play against Korean Australian Lee Min-ji (27) and Stephanie Kiriaku (23). Ko Jin-young and Kim Hyo-joo will face Hannah Green (27) and Sarah Kemp (38).
