Choi Hye-jin shows off her strength on the domestic stage…Hana Financial Group takes the lead by 1 shot

Choi Hye-jin took the lead by one stroke in the KLPGA Tour Hana Financial Group Championship (total prize money of 1.5 billion won).

In the second day of the tournament held at Bears Best Cheongna Golf Club (par 72) in Seo-gu, Incheon on the 22nd, Choi Hye-jin reduced 3 strokes with 5 birdies and 2 bogeys, with an intermediate total of 6 under par 138 strokes, tied for second place with Park Hyun-kyung, Lee So-young, Bang Shin-sil, Lee Ye-won, Madasom, and In Ju-yeon were ahead by one stroke.

Choi Hye-jin won the Lotte Open held last May at the golf course where this tournament is being held. Choi Hye-jin is the only player in this competition to record scores in the 60s for two consecutive days. Hyejin Choi said after the game, “It is a golf course where I won, so I have good memories of it. So, although she hasn’t been feeling well lately, she competed with the expectation that she will get better. “After playing the game, I think she felt a lot better about her shots and putts well,” she said. “I did well for two days, so I will believe in myself and play aggressively for the remaining two days,” she added.

However, the pursuers are also formidable. Mada Som continues her upward trend after winning her first career title at the OK Savings Bank Suitman Open last week. Bang Shin-sil, the long-hitting king of the KLPGA Tour, is also aiming for more multipliers four months after winning the E1 Charity Open last May. In addition, Lee Ye-won, who is first in the prize money rankings and grand prize points, is also a difficult opponent for Park Hyun-kyung, who has been runner-up three times this season, and Lee So-young, who has six wins in total.

Lee Ye-won passed the cut in tied second place, so she will surpass 1 billion won in prize money for the season through this tournament. Currently, we are short of 455,803 won, so if we complete the race, we will build a new monument. So far, only seven players have exceeded 1 billion won in prize money in a single season: Kim Hyo-joo, Park Seong-hyun, Ko Jin-young, Lee Jeong-eun6, Choi Hye-jin, Jang Ha-na, Park Min-ji, and Kim Su-ji.스포츠토토

Su-ji Kim, who was defending her title, reduced her score by one stroke and tied for 8th place with a total of 4 under par 140 strokes, along with So-mi Lee, Lee Da-yeon, Ko Ji-woo, and Patty Tabatanakit (Thailand). These players are only two strokes behind leader Choi Hye-jin, so they are likely to rise to the lead at any time.

World No. 7 Lee Min-ji (Australia), who won the LPGA Tour Kroger Queen City Championship, which ended on the 10th, reduced 3 strokes and tied for 15th with an intermediate total of 3 under par 141 strokes. However, Lydia Go (New Zealand), ranked 10th in the world, was eliminated from the preliminary round with an interim total of 4 over par 148.
