After all, there was nothing like a huge amount of ‘prize money’ to induce players to participate.

Many of the world’s top women’s golf players and Korean players participate in the Ladies’ European Tour (LET), which offers huge prize money with enormous oil money.

LET will hold the Aramco Saudi Ladies International (total prize money of $5 million) at the Royal Greens Golf and Country토토사이트 Club (par 72, 6295 yards) in King Abdullah Economic City, Saudi Arabia for four days from the 16th (Korean time).

The total prize money of this tournament sponsored by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund (PIF) is five times more than last year’s $1 million, and the winning prize is $750,000. The total prize money for general tournaments in the LPGA is between $1.5 million and $2 million.

With a huge prize money at stake, many of the world’s top rankers, whose faces are hard to see in the regular LET, also participate.

First, world No. 1 Lydia Ko (New Zealand) will participate. Lydia Ko, whom she married last December, has not participated in the tournament for more than a month due to honeymoon and winter training. Lydia Ko is also the winner of the 2020 competition.

In addition, world No. 7 Lexi Thompson (USA), No. 10 Hataoka Nasa (Japan), No. 14 Lin Xiyu (China), No. 17 Daniel Kang (USA), and No. 19 Hannah Green (Australia) will also compete.

Many Korean players also participate. In-ji Jeon (#8 in the world), Hyo-joo Kim (#9), A-lim Kim (48th), Hae-ran Yoo (52nd), Eun-hee Ji (#54), and Ji-eun Shin (98th), who are playing on the LPGA Tour, will be making a sortie, and the Korean Women’s Pro Lee Jung-eun (38th), Lee So-mi (43rd), Lim Hee-jung (57th), Hong Jung-min (76th), Jeong Yun-ji (77th), Lim Jin-hee (93rd), Song Ga-eun (107th), Cho Ah-yeon (111th), Seong Yu-jin (119th), Ha Min-song (134th), and Hwang Jung-mi (138th) were also on the list.

A KLPGA official explained, “The LPGA tour is taking a break until the 23rd of this month, and the KLPGA tour starts in April, so it seems that players are participating more actively.”
