This competition was disrupted for two days in a row due to fog.
There was a two-hour delay from the start of the first group of the first round the previous day, and 15 players did not finish the game by sunset, and the remaining matches of the first round this morning also started 1 hour and 20 minutes later than scheduled.
The match continued until well past 7 p.m. on this day, but three players were unable to complete the second round and had to play the remaining matches the next day.
Seo Yeon-jeong, who was ranked in the top 20 at 2 under par in her first round, rallied in the second round and opened up the possibility of her first win in her 260th event on the regular tour.
He has been active on the regular tour since 2014, but has placed second 10 times and has yet to win.
The player who has played the most tournaments on the KLPGA tour in history, including her first win, is Song Ahn, who reached the top in her 237th tournament. If Seo Yeon-jeong wins, she will break this record.
On this day, Seo Yeon-jeong started the second round at the first hole and showed consistent performance by sweeping five birdies in the first and second halves. He made the only bogey at the 13th hole (par 4).
Seo Yeon-jeong, who was one stroke short of the course record of 10 under par, said, “I knew that 10 under par was the course record, but I thought that recording more than 10 under par was impossible, so I put my mind down and played, so I was able to finish with a good score.” .
He expressed his determination, saying, “Winning isn’t something you can do just by thinking about it, so I’m going to put my mind at ease and try to be comfortable. I played a lot passively to protect myself in the final round, but I’ll try to change that to be more aggressive.”
‘Super Rookie’ Hwang Yu-min, who ranks first in Rookie of the Year points (1,818 points), reduced 5 strokes on this day and recorded an interim total of 10 under par 134 strokes, putting pressure on the lead by one stroke.
Hwang Yu-min had an opportunity to add more wins about two months after reporting her first win on the KLPGA tour at the Daeyu Winia/MBN Women’s Open in early July.
Noh Seung-hee, who took the sole lead with 7 under par in the first round, reduced 3 strokes without a bogey and rose to second place, continuing his challenge for his first win on the regular tour.
Somi Lee followed in 4th place (9 under par, 135 strokes) and Yerim Choi in 5th place (8 under par, 136 strokes).
Defending champion Jeong-mi Hwang and Soo-ji Kim, winner of last week’s major tournament Hanwha Classic, were tied for sixth place with Ko Ji-woo (7 under par, 137 strokes).
Park Min-ji, Park Ji-young, and Lim Jin-hee, who won two games this season, were ranked high with a midterm total of 6 under par 138 strokes, and Kim Min-byeol and Lee Ga-young were ranked high with a 5 under par 139 strokes.
