Park Min-ji, who is aiming for 3 consecutive wins, “I am everywhere in the competition”

Park Min-ji, a popular player on the Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) tour, got off to a good start toward winning three consecutive victories in a single event.

In the first round of the KLPGA Tour NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship (total prize money of 800 million won) held at the Suwon Country Club (par 72) in Yongin City, Gyeonggi Province on the 12th, Park Min-ji tied 3 birdies and 1 bogey to record 2 under par 70 strokes. She is 4 strokes behind the co-leader Park Ji-young, who recorded 6-under-par 66 strokes.

This tournament is very meaningful to Park Min-ji. It won two consecutive years in 2021 and last year, and if it remains at the top this year, it will be the fifth time in the history of the KLPGA tour to achieve three consecutive victories. It is a record that only the late Ok-hee Guo, Se-ri Park, Su-yeon Kang, and Hae-rim Kim have stepped on.

Moreover, lifting the championship trophy in a competition hosted by NH Investment & Securities, the main sponsor, is very meaningful to the player. This is also the reason why Park Min-ji was particularly happy when he won two consecutive victories last year. Just looking at the atmosphere of this year’s event, the main character is Park Min-ji. Park Min-ji’s face can be easily found on the poster and tickets of the competition, as well as all over the site.

Park Min-ji, who finished the first round, laughed, saying, “There are big pictures of me in everything related to the tournament,” and then said, “I played the game thinking how good it is that the tournament was prepared for one person.” He added, “When I come here, I always feel comfortable because of the good memories, so I knew how to play well on the first day.”

Park Min-ji, who dominated the KLPGA with 6 wins for 2 consecutive years, has yet to win this year. The best result this season was 3rd place at the Mediheal · Hankook Ilbo Championship held in April. Park Min-ji, who diagnosed herself as ‘2% lacking’ prior to this tournament, said, “I kept thinking about the reason for the lack, but it seems that I couldn’t catch the flow.” I think I lost and I’m trying to revive the good feeling.”스포츠토토

Park Min-ji, who tied for 20th at the Salon Perth Cup, a major tournament on the JLPGA tour last week, looked back and said, “I scored a score that didn’t match my castle.” At the same time, he expressed his intention to participate in the US Open and Evian Championship, major tournaments on the LPGA Tour this year. Park Min-ji expressed her confidence, saying, “The major tournaments in Korea, the U.S., and Japan have similar conditions, such as grass,” and “I don’t think it’s a new experience.”
