The season of ‘Autumn Queen’… Kim Soo-ji challenges to defend her title for two weeks in a row
‘Autumn Queen’ Kim Su-ji (27) will participate in the competition as the defending champion for two consecutive weeks.
Suji Kim will participate as the defending champion in the OK Financial Group Shotman Open (total prize money of 800 million won) of the Korea Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour held at Incheon Club 72 Country Club (par 72) starting on the 15th. He will also compete as the defending champion at the Hana Financial Group Championship (total prize money of 1.5 billion won) to be held at Bears Best Cheongna in Incheon next week.
He won the OK Financial Group Pak Se-ri Invitational held at the Serenity Country Club in Cheongju, Chungcheongbuk-do last year, and immediately took the top spot at the Hana Financial Group Championship held the following week, winning for two weeks in a row. The OK Financial Group Pak Se-ri Invitational will be held this year under a new name, the Short Man Open.
Su-ji Kim won her first win at the 2021 KLPGA Tour KG E-Daily Ladies Open, and then won the Hite Jinro Championship, taking her second win in one go. They won 2 games last year and are recording 2 wins for 2 years in a row. This year, attention is being paid to whether Kim Su-ji, who won the trophy at the Hanwha Classic, a major tournament, can continue her record by winning two more tournaments as the defending champion.
Suji Kim said, “I am preparing for the tournament with even more excitement as it is my first time participating in the tournament as the defending champion in a long time. My shooting feel and physical condition have improved a lot since my first win this season, so I will try to play with confidence.”토토사이트
The Short Man Open moved the name and location of the competition to Club 72 Country Club. Suji Kim pledged, “It’s a good course, but I remember that the strategy was difficult. When I practice, I will check the attack points carefully and pay a lot of attention to course management.”
Emerging as Kim Su-ji’s opponent is Lee Ye-won (20), who is currently leading the target points and prize money rankings. Yewon Lee was runner-up at last year’s Ssotman Open.
Yewon Lee said, “It was a tournament I wanted to win as an OK Golf scholarship student, but I was disappointed that I finished runner-up last year. This year, I am working hard to make up for the shortcomings so that I can shake off last year’s disappointment. I have to focus a little more when competing for the championship. “I’m going to try to play with it,” he said emphatically.
In addition, ‘Hot Six’ Jeong-eun Lee and So-yeon Ryu (33), who are playing on the LPGA Tour, and Sakura Morikawa (Japan), a legend on the Japan Ladies Professional Golf (JLPGA) Tour, are expected to participate and captivate golf fans.
