“I hope the tour veterans win a lot.”
Lee Jung-min (30) showed off her “veteran’s dignity” in the second tournament of the 2023 season of the Korea Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour and stepped on the 10-win tally.
On the 18th, at the KLPGA Tour ‘PLK Pacific Rings Korea Championship with SBS GOLF’, which ended at Twin Doves Golf Club (par 72) in Binh Duong Province, northern Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, Lee Jung-min recorded a final total of 9 under par, 207 strokes, and received the championship cup.
Lee Jung-min, who debuted on the KLPGA tour in 2010 and recorded 10 wins, smiled broadly, saying, “I had a difficult day because of strong winds and difficult pin positions. I played with a strategy of persevering as much as possible, and I was able to achieve good results.”
Lee Jung-min, who is in his 13th season since his debut, reached the top in a year and two months after the Dongbu Construction Korea Land Trust Championship in October 2021.
Lee Jung-min said, “I feel that it is increasingly difficult to win. I wondered if I could win 10 times because of the skills of the young players, the lengthening course, and my stamina gradually declining.” “I wonder how far I can go now. I hope the two remaining friends and seniors on the tour will win a lot.”
On this day, Lee Jung-min once led the 2nd place group by 6 strokes. However, from the 14th hole in the second half, he committed bogey on three consecutive holes and climbed to the lead by two strokes at the teeing ground of the last hole 18 (par 5).
It is common to choose safety rather than unreasonable attack as it is two strokes ahead, but Lee Jung-min hit the second shot toward the green. He barely passed the water hazard, but it was a dangerous moment. 토토사이트
Lee Jung-min said, “I couldn’t see the leaderboard because it was covered by the gallery. So I couldn’t tell how many strokes the difference was. Also, I don’t look at the leaderboard very often.” Because it can be more difficult,” he explained.
Lee Jung-min, who ended the year in a good mood, will go to Thailand for field training in mid-January. Until training, he said, he intended to immerse himself in the skiing he normally enjoys.
Lee Jung-min said, “I like skiing, but I haven’t been able to do it often. I won the championship, so I plan to enjoy it this time.” You have to build up your stamina,” he said.
