The 78th U.S. Women’s Open (total prize money of 10 million dollars), the highest peak of women’s golf in the world, will be held for four days from the 6th of next month at Pebble Beach Golf Links (par 71, 6546 yards) in Pebble Beach, California, USA. Ahead of the most prestigious major tournament to be held following last week’s KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, local heat is soaring early.먹튀검증
A total of 156 players, including strong players from the LPGA, professional tours in Korea, Japan, and Europe, as well as pros and amateurs who have passed preliminary rounds in and outside the U.S., will participate, and 22 Korean players will participate. LPGA players such as world No. 1 Ko Jin-young, Ji Eun-hee, Ryu So-yeon, Jeon In-ji, Lee Jeong-eun 6, Kim Hyo-joo, Kim Se-young, Choi Hye-jin, and Yu Hae-ran, as well as Shin Ji-ae, who plays in Japan, and KLPGA signboards Park Min-ji, Da-yeon Lee, and So-mi Lee, challenged. .
The attention of domestic fans is focused on the 12th championship of a Korean player. The US Women’s Open is a major tournament with a special relationship in which Korean players have been crowned a total of 11 times since Pak Se-ri first won in 1998 in a ‘barefoot fighting spirit’.
The expectation for Park Min-ji, Lee Da-yeon, and Lee So-mi, who received the right to participate as players within the world’s top 75, is to write a myth of reaching the world’s highest peak and advancing to the American stage as a member of the KLPGA, just like Ryu So-yeon, Jeon In-ji, and Kim A-rim in the past. In 2011, Ryu So-yeon also won after an overtime match against KLPGA leader Seo Hee-kyung, and Jeon In-ji defeated Yang Hee-young of the LPGA by one stroke in 2015 to win the championship. Kim A-rim won the surprise championship in 2020, which was held in December due to the Corona 19 pandemic, and moved to the US stage the following year like the two seniors before him.
Park Min-ji, who has 18 wins in the KLPGA, will be participating in the US Women’s Open for the first time. Park Min-ji, who did not participate in the competition last year despite her domestic schedule, is leaving for the United States this year with a big dream amidst the will to actively participate in overseas competitions. Park Min-ji, who is leaving the country on the 1st after recharging after winning 2 wins last week, expressed her motivation, saying, “I want to let the world know that there is a player like me, and I want to compete for the championship with the goal of becoming the top 5.”
Lee So-mi dreams of a rebellion using the experience of her first appearance last year (tied for 44th), and Lee Da-yeon, who won three majors in Korea, is going to hunt for a bigger major title using the bitter cup of missing the cut in her first appearance in 2021.
