Lee Ye-won is on the verge of winning her first career on the Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) tour.
Lee Ye-won lost two strokes in the third round of the KLPGA Tour Lotte Rent-A-Car Women’s Open (total prize money of 800 million won) held at Lotte Skyhill Jeju CC (par 72) in Seogwipo, Jeju on the 8th, but maintained the lead for two consecutive days with an intermediate total of 7 under par and 209 strokes. She is six strokes behind Jeon Ye-sung and Park Ji-young in second.
Lee Ye-won, who ran away with a difference in strokes, which was not easy for her turnaround in the final round, had a golden opportunity to win the first championship in her life, which had been difficult to catch. Lee Ye-won was named in the top 10 13 times, including three runner-up finishes last year, in her first season of debut, but her winning luck did not follow.
Lee Ye-won, who intensively refined her short game during the two-month off-season training in Perth, Australia, maintained her batting average with a calm short game on the day when most players lost at-bats because the cold and strong wind blew the ball on the green properly. 메이저놀이터
In the third round, when the temperature was better than the previous day, he missed the green 11 times, but recorded only 4 bogies. In hole 14 (par 3), the tee shot fell into the water, but after receiving a penalty, I blocked the third shot by putting it close to the hole.
It was regrettable that I missed short par putts on holes 16 (par 4) and 17 (par 3) at the end of the game, but I finished the third round happily with a 2m birdie on hole 18 (par 5).
Park Ji-young, who has 5 wins in her career, lost only 1 stroke and rose to 2nd place (total 1 under par), while Jeon Ye-seong, who wrote a 2 over par with a birdie on the last 18th hole, also won the Evercollagen Queens Crown in 2021. Aiming for 2 wins in a row. Ahn Seon-ju and Lee So-young challenged for a come-from-behind championship with a tie for third place (even par).
Of the 61 players who played that day, 60 scored over par. Lee Ga-young, who hit an even par 72, became the main character of the daily best score. Park Min-ji, who lost 8 strokes on the day and hit the 80s for the first time since his debut, goes to the final round with a tie for 41st place (11 over par).
