Bang won the Korean Ladies Golf Association (KLPGA) Tour E1 Charity Open on 28 April. Starting with the KLPGA Championship last month, she captivated golf fans by playing in the final-round championship group on three occasions. It was her first win in five tournaments.메이저놀이터
She stands at 6-foot-2 and is known for her powerful long game, which can reach over 300 yards. This, coupled with her delicate short game, has made her one of the hottest players on the KLPGA Tour this season. She currently leads the KLPGA Tour in stroke average (70.08), driving distance (259.6 yards) and greens in regulation (79.6 per cent), and is sixth on the money list and third on the Rookie of the Year list.
For the second week in a row, Ko retained the world No. 1 ranking, while Nellie Koda (USA), Lydia Ko (NZL), Lilia Boo (USA) and Minjee Lee (AUS) held on to second through fifth.
