Seong Yu-jin (Hanwha Q Cells) caught her debut motive and rival, Park Hyeon-gyeong (23 years old, Korea Land Trust), and became the 15th ‘Match Queen’ of the Korea Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour.
Seong Yu-jin won the KLPGA Tour Doosan Match Play Championship (total prize money of 900 million won) held at the Ladena Golf Club (par 72, 6350 yards) in Chuncheon, Gangwon-do on the 21st, defeating Park Hyun-kyung by 4 holes to reach the top.
Seong Yu-jin, who stood at the top for the first time at the Lotte Open in June of last year, followed the runner-up at the LPGA Lotte Championship last month as an invited player, and achieved her second career title in less than a year.
Seong Yu-jin, who never lost in the group stage including three matches, captured Hong Jung-min (21) in the semifinals and defeated Park Hyeon-gyeong to win the championship with seven consecutive victories. She won 225 million won in prize money and 60 grand prize points.
Seong Yu-jin has been compared to Park Hyun-kyung since her debut. Although they are the same age as her debut motive, Park Hyun-kyung showed potential from her first year, and she won 3 wins only the following year. She was also overshadowed by other members of her age, Lim Hee-jung (Doosan Engineering & Construction) and Cho Ah-yeon (Korea Land Trust). In her rookie season, Lim Hee-jung took 3 wins, and Jo Ah-yeon won 2 and earned her Rookie of the Year honors.
Compared to them, the speed was slow. However, after winning the championship last year, it was confirmed that he had definitely grown a notch. The flow of this season was also good. After last month’s LPGA Lotte Championship, she entered the top 10 in two consecutive tournaments, and in this tournament, Lim Hee-jung in the round of 16 and Park Hyun-kyung in the final reached the top for the second time in her career.토토사이트
