Ko Jin-young, LA Championship sortie… Challenging the first champion in the ‘Heaven-Hell’ course

 Ko Jin-young (28, Solaire) sets out to take revenge on the course where she went back and forth between ‘heaven and hell’ last year.

Ko Jin-young will participate in the JM Eagle LA Championship (total prize money of 3 million dollars), a new LPGA tour tournament held at the Wilshire Country Club (par 71, 6258 yards) in Los Angeles, California, for four days from the 28th (Korean time). sortie

This tournament is the first tournament this year, but the total prize money is high at 3 million dollars. On the LPGA Tour this year, there are only five major tournaments, the CME Group Tour Championship, and the Grant Thornton Invitational with total prize money exceeding $3 million.

Ko Jin-young continues to be in the best form of any Korean player this season.

He won two consecutive victories at the HSBC World Championships last month, putting an end to Korean players’ ‘irrelevance’, and last week at the Chevron Championship, the first major tournament of the season, he tied for ninth, maintaining a good feeling.

Although this event is a new event, the course on which the event is held is not unfamiliar. Wilshire Country Club is where the DIO Implant LA Open was held last year.

Ko Jin-young experienced both ‘heaven and hell’ here last year.

Ko Jin-young, who took the lead in the second round with a 7-under-par 64, made a quadruple bogey at the end of a struggle by dropping the ball into the water twice in the 17th hole (par 4) of the third round the next day.크크크벳

For Ko Jin-young, who has a good sense of shot, this is a good opportunity to shake off the regrets of last year. The 3rd and 4th rounds at the LA Open are memories like a ‘nightmare’, but the ‘course compatibility’ wasn’t bad enough to write a course record before that.

In addition to Ko Jin-young, Kim Hyo-joo (28, Lotte), Yoo Hae-ran (22, Daol Financial Group), and Yang Hee-young (34, Woori Financial Group) are seeking their first championship.
