Waiting for another ‘Major Queen’.
The fourth LPGA tour major tournament of the season will be held. The Amundi Evian Championship (total prize money of $6.5 million) will be held at the Evian Resort Golf Club (par 71) in Evian-les-Bains, France for four days from the 27th. The Evian Championship began with the European Women’s Professional Golf Tour (LET). It was transferred to the LPGA Tour in 2000 and was promoted to a major tournament in 2013.카지노
I also have many good memories with Korean players. In 2010, Shin Ji-ae became the first Korean champion. In 2012, Inbi Park accepted the baton. Kim Hyo-joo participated as a high school student in 2014, the year after being promoted to a major tournament, and demonstrated her potential to win the championship. It’s not over. In 2016, Jeon In-ji, 2019, Ko Jin-young, etc. continued a good trend. Expectations are high this time too.
◆ Ko Jin-young’s
Korean women’s golf corps seeks to restore her reputation. One of the strongest candidates for the championship is, of course, Jinyoung Ko. She is the only Korean player to win (2 wins) trophies on the LPGA Tour this season. Aiming for the top of the Evian Championship once again after 4 years. Winning is desperately needed to turn the atmosphere around. The current trend is not good. Since winning the Cognizant Founders Cup in May, he has failed to enter the top 10 in all four tournaments. In the previous major tournament, the US Women’s Open, she left a regret of missing the cut.
He also wants to defend the world number one spot. Jinyoung Ko is on her 163rd week in the lead and is setting a new record for her in this category. However, the difference with her runner-up Nellie Corda (USA) is only 0.23. Last week she was even chased by 0.02 points. Rankings may change depending on the results of one tournament. According to the LPGA Tour announcement, Ko Jin-young will play against Ayaka Furue (Japan) and Chiara Noja (United Arab Emirates) in the first and second rounds of the Evian Championship. Attention is focusing on whether we can see Ko Jin-young’s unique cool swing.
◆ Kim Hyo-joo thirsty for victory Kim
Hyo-joo is also aiming for the championship cup. This season, he is maintaining steady performance, ranking first in the green hit rate (74.5%) and average at bats (69.62 strokes). He participated in 10 competitions and placed in the top 20 9 times and the top 10 6 times. 9th in prize money ranking. Unfortunately, there is no championship. thirst is great Like Ko Jin-young, he is considered a strong candidate for the championship. According to Golf Week, a professional golf media, Draft Kings, a betting company, gave Kim Hyo-joo the odds for the Evian Championship at +1,200, the lowest among the participating players. That means it has a high rating.
She also scrambles for the ‘major hunter’ Jeon In-ji. Last year, she won the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, her third major (and her fourth on tour). She showed off her strength when she finished runner-up at the last US Women’s Open. Park Min-ji, the country’s No. 1, also threw a vote. Park Min-ji explored her possibility of advancing to the overseas stage through this competition last year. At the time, it was tied for 37th place, but the recent trend is not bad. It is expected that there is a possibility. In addition, Yoo Hae-ran, Yang Hee-young, Choi Hye-jin, Shin Ji-eun, Kim Se-young, Annarin, Kim A-rim, Lee Jeong-eun, Yoo So-yeon, Park Seong-hyeon, Kim Su-ji, and Lee So-mi will go out with their dreams.
