‘I endured well’ Seong Yu-jin, Lotte Championship 3R also leads… First U.S. championship challenge

 Seong Yu-jin (23)토스카지노, a ‘domestic wave’, maintained the lead in the third round of the LPGA Tour Lotte Championship (total prize money of 2 million dollars). As a non-member, she is attempting to win her first U.S. championship.

In the 3rd round of the tournament held at Ohakalei Country Club (par 72) in Ewa Beach, Hawaii, USA on the 15th (Korean time), Sung Eugene tied 2 birdies and 1 bogey to hit 1 under par 71.

Seong Yu-jin, who recorded a total of 9 under par 207 strokes until the third round, beat the tie for second place by one stroke and took the lead alone.

Seong Yu-jin, who won her first championship in her fourth year of debut at the KLPGA Tour Lotte Open last year, earned the right to participate in the Lotte Championship due to an injury at the time. She entered this competition on the recommendation of her sponsor.

This is my third LPGA Tour event. It was a situation where there was a lot of pressure as he participated in the 3rd round, where the competition for the championship was in full swing, but Seong Yu-jin calmly handled the game.

If Sung Yu-jin wins the final 4 rounds on the 16th, she will be able to become a member of the LPGA Tour right away and will open the way to promote on the American stage. Lydia Ko (New Zealand), who reached the top of the 2013 Canadian Women’s Open, was the last player who participated on the LPGA tour through sponsor recommendation to win. Sung Yu-jin is the first Korean player to challenge for a non-member championship since A-lim Kim (28), who won the 2020 US Women’s Open.

Seong Yu-jin, who caught a birdie by showing off a perfect wedge shot that almost turned into a shot eagle from hole 1 (par 5), made a long par streak to the 12th hole, but did not lose patience. On the 13th hole (par 4), she hit her second shot with a 56-degree wedge to the pin 1.5m away, then she added a birdie to take the sole lead.

He faced a crisis when his tee shot fell into a bunker on the 14th hole (par 4), but he blocked it well with a 2m bogey. Georgia Hall (England), who was chasing Eugene Seong, also lost at-bats, so Eugene Seong was able to maintain the lead. After successfully paring all of his remaining holes, he will challenge for his first LPGA Tour victory.

Seong Yu-jin showed off a stable performance in the third round as well. The driver shot distance reached 291 yards, the fairway landing rate was 71.43% (10/14), and the green hit rate was 72.22% (13/18). The number of putts was 29.

Georgia Hall (England), Grace Kim (Australia), and Linia Ström (Sweden), who recently finished runner-up in two consecutive tournaments, made a tie for second place with an 8-under-par 208 strokes to chase Sung Yu-jin by one stroke.

In the second round, Natakrita Wongtawirap (Thailand), who tied for the lead with Eugene Sung, lost one stroke and tied for fifth place (7 under par 209 strokes) with Hataoka Nasa (Japan), Brooke Henderson (Canada), Celine Butier (France) was named tied for 8th place (6 under par 210 strokes).
