The competition to win the OK Financial Group Shotman Open (total prize money of 800 million won) is expected to be fierce.
Park Bo-gyeom (24) made seven birdies and no bogeys in the second round of the Korea Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour Shotman Open held at Club 72 Country Club (par 72) in Incheon on the 16th.
Park Bo-gyeom, who recorded an intermediate total of 13 under par 131 strokes, maintained the sole lead. Starting from the first round, there were ‘no bogeys’ for two days in a row.
As soon as Park Bo-gyeom started from the 10th hole (par 5), he made consecutive birdies until the 11th hole (par 4). He also caught birdies in the 13th hole (par 4) and the 15th hole (par 4)스포츠토토, and boasted flawless play in the second half, making only 3 birdies and no bogeys.
Park Bo-gyeom, who won her first career win at the Kyochon 1991 Ladies Open last May, is aiming for her second win in this tournament in about four months. He said, “As my first win was in a shortened competition, I thought I wanted to prove myself a little more. Even though I won, I practiced more strictly to myself. I really hope to get good results in this competition.”
The competition, which was held under the name of the OK Financial Group Pak Se-ri Invitational until last year, was held this year as the Shitman Open. The venue for the competition was also moved to Club 72 Country Club. Park Bo-gyeom is aiming for his second win in the changed competition, but it appears that the competition for the championship will not be easy. There are many competitors. Lee Ji-hyeon (27), who won the E1 Charity Open in 2017, tied for second place with a total of 12 under par and 132 strokes, and is challenging for the top spot for the first time in six years.
Ji-Hyeon Lee said, “Overall, everything went well. I had a hard time with a hamstring injury last year. It’s still not perfect, but it’s gotten a lot better. Because I had a hard time with the injury, I’m setting a goal to finish each competition without injury. I’ll do my best until the end tomorrow as well.” “I will do my best and accept the results,” he said.
Following Madasom (24), who tied for second place with Ji-Hyeon Lee, Ye-rim Choi (24) took sole 4th place with 11 under par 133 strokes, and Se-hee Lee (26) ranked 5th with 10 under par 134 strokes, creating her first opportunity to win.
Lee Se-hee said, “I had a hard time with my shots for a while. This time, I had a new club fitting, and the change was helpful because it matched well with my current body condition. There were many cases where I missed shots because I was too motivated on the last day. Each situation required it. “I think it will be okay if I just focus on what it is,” he said.
