Hong Jung-min and Hong Ji-won jointly lead… Both of them have 2 wins in their career


Hong Jung-min and Hong Ji-won, who have been in their 3rd year on the Korea Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) tour, shared their lead on the first day of the national title tournament, inflating their dream of a personal two-win career.

Hong Jung-min tied 8 birdies and 2 bogies in the first round of the DB Group 37th Korea Women’s Open Golf Championship (total prize money of 1.2 billion won)메이저놀이터 held at Rainbow Hills Country Club (par 72, 6721 yards) in Eumseong-gun, Chungcheongbuk-do on the 15th, and scored 6 under par 66 strokes. and placed his name at the top of the leaderboard. Hong Ji-won tied her shoulders with Hong Jung-min by tying 7 birdies and 1 bogey.

Both debuted on the regular tour in 2021 and won their first win last year. Hong Jeong-min topped the Doosan Match Play Championship in May, and Hong Ji-won won the Hanwha Classic in August, marking her first major title victory.

Hong Jeong-min, who made 5 top-10 finishes in 12 competitions this season, including 2 runner-up, has a chance to win a total of 2 victories with national titles and major titles. After winning the Hanwha Classic, Hong Ji-won, who failed to produce impressive results such as finishing in the top 10 three times, is paying attention to whether he can make a rebound with a major title again.

Hong Jung-min got off to a fresh start with consecutive birdies on the 10th (par 5) and 11th holes (par 3), but finished the first half at 2 under par, bogey and birdie from the 15th hole (par 4). However, by using his concentration in the second half, he cut out 4 birdies and took the lead at once. Hong Ji-won, who was 2 under par until the 10th hole, dropped four consecutive birdies from the 13th hole (par 4), raising her ranking significantly.

National team member Kim Min-sol (2nd year of Suseong Bangtong High School), who will participate in the Hangzhou Asian Games in September, tied 6 birdies and 2 bogeys to hit a 4 under par 68 to form a tie for 4th place, laying the groundwork to jump into the championship competition. Park Min-ji, who is trying to win the championship for two weeks in a row, tied for 4th place.

‘Super Rookie’ Bang Shin-sil showed off her hot long hit by hitting four shots over 300 yards. In the first half, he caught 5 birdies and took the lead, but in the second half his shot faltered and he tied for 10th place (3 under par 69 strokes). In the 7th hole (par 5), the tee shot flew into the forest and hit the provisional ball, so it was regrettable that I made a double bogey.
