‘Trendy’ Minji Park, 5th in KLPGA history to win 3 consecutive victories in a single event
Korea Professional Women’s Golf (KLPGA토토사이트) ‘trend’ Park Min-ji (25‧ NH Investment & Securities) aims to win 3 consecutive championships in a single tournament for the 5th time in history.
Park Min-ji will participate in the 2023 NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship (total prize money of 800 million won) held at Suwon Country Club (par 72, 6586 yards) in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do for three days from the 12th.
Park Min-ji has a good memory of winning consecutive championships in 2021 and 2022 in this competition hosted by her sponsor, NH Investment & Securities. If Park Min-ji wins this year as well, he will become the 5th player in the history of the KLPGA Tour to achieve “three consecutive victories in a single event”.
Previously, the late Ok-hee Gu, Se-ri Park, Su-yeon Kang, and Hae-rim Kim achieved great records. The most recent three-game losing streak was Kim Hae-rim at the Kyochon Honey Ladies Open from 2016 to 2018.
Park Min-ji is aiming for his first win of the season with his record. Park Min-ji, who achieved the most wins on the KLPGA tour with 6 wins in the past 2 years in a row, participated in 4 tournaments at the beginning of this season, but has yet to win. However, his form is not bad, with two top 10 finishes.
Park Min-ji also gave up participating in the Hanwha International Crown, a national competition held in the United States last week, in order to participate in this competition in optimal condition.
Instead, Park Min-ji took part in the Salon Pas Cup, a major tournament on the JLPGA tour, to adjust her condition.
Park Min-ji said, “It is an honor to be able to challenge the record of three consecutive victories in a single competition. Especially, since it is held by NH Investment & Securities, the main sponsor, I am more greedy.” We are continuing our efforts to fill the .”
In order for Park Min-ji to achieve a great record, she must surpass her competitors. Park Ji-young (27, Korea Real Estate Trust), first in the prize money ranking, and Lee So-young (26, Lotte), who ranked first in target points, are the first to be alerted.
Park Ji-young claimed her first win of the season early last year by reaching the top at the Hana Financial Group Singapore Women’s Open held in Singapore last December. She has consistently performed well all season, including a runner-up in the Lotte Rent-A-Car Women’s Open.
Lee So-young has not won this season, but has been named in the top 5 four times. She additionally skipped her Kyochon Honey Ladies Open last week to replenish her stamina and complete her competition preparations.
Hwang Yoo-min (20, Lotte), who made his professional debut this season, is determined to shake off the disappointment of last year’s runner-up. Hwang Yoo-min, who competed last year as a recommended amateur player, missed the championship by one stroke behind Park Min-ji.
Hwang Yu-min said, “I want to lift the championship trophy this year by recalling the good memories of last year,” and promised, “I will focus on the short game around the green and get better results.”
In addition, Lee Bo-mi (35), a permanent seed on the KLPGA tour, is attracting attention after a long time since last season’s final match, ‘SK Shielders-SK Telecom Championship 2022’. Lee Bo-mi, who was active on the Japanese stage, has decided to end her life on the JLPGA tour by the end of this year.
