Yoo Hae-ran (22 , Daol Financial Group ) finally won her first victory in the LPGA Tour.

Yoo Hae-ran, who debuted on the LPGA tour this year, recorded an eagle in the final third round of the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship (total prize money of $2.3 million) held at Pinnacle Country Club (par 71, 6,438 yards) in Rogers, Arkansas, USA on the 2nd (Korean time). He hit 5 under par 66 strokes with 5 birdies and 2 bogeys to win with a final total of 19 under par 194 strokes.먹튀검증

On this day, she reduced 7 strokes with 1 eagle and 5 birdies, and was 3 strokes behind Linea Strom (Swarden), who was in second place with a final score of 16 under par 197 strokes.

With this, Yoo Hae-ran enjoyed his first career win in his 20th tour debut.

Yoo Hae-ran became the fourth winner among this year’s rookies, following Grace Kim (Australia), Rose Jang, and Alexa Pano (USA). Yoo Hae-ran, who is in first place in the Rookie of the Year race, is solidifying his performance.

It has been five months since Ko Jin-young’s victory at the Cognizant Founders Cup in May that a Korean player won this year’s LPGA Tour. Additionally, the number of wins by Korean players this year increased to 3, including 2 wins by Ko Jin-young.

Yoo Hae-ran, the silver medalist in the women’s golf team event at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, won the Rookie of the Year title on the Korea Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour and, after accumulating a total of 4 wins, passed the LPGA Qualifying Series last year and entered the American stage.

Hae-ran Yoo, who had consistently performed in the top 10 five times before this competition, but had never won a championship, showed off his excellent shot sense and game management, maintaining the lead for all three days and winning ‘Wire to Wire’.

Yoo Hae-ran, who entered the final round with a two-shot lead, was shaken in the beginning.

He recorded a birdie on the 1st hole (par 4), but made a bogey on the 2nd hole (par 5) and then the 5th hole (par 4). The no-bogey streak for 42 holes, including the previous day, was also halted.

While Yoo Hae-ran was faltering, Kim Se-young, Shin Ji-eun, Hannah Green (Australia), and Strom came forward, creating a battle for the lead.

Yoo Hae-ran, who seemed to be slipping away from the championship race, changed his mood with a birdie on the 10th hole (par 4) and then jumped back into the lead race with a birdie on the 12th hole (par 3).

And on the 14th hole (par 5), he hit a clutch shot that virtually decided the game. He hit the second shot with a 7-iron 1m next to the hole and caught an eagle.

Yoo Hae-ran, who quickly returned to the sole lead, nailed the win by making a 5m birdie putt on the 16th hole (par 4), his most difficult hole.

Kim Se-young, who was once the sole leader by reducing 6 strokes until the 14th hole, was pushed back with a bogey on the 16th hole and ended up tied for 3rd place (15 under par, 198 strokes).

Three Korean players were in the top 3, including Shin Ji-eun, who lost 4 strokes, tied for 3rd place.

Green, Yuna Nishimura (Japan), and Bianca Pagdanganan (Philippines) also tied for third place.
