Korean Women’s Professional Golf 안전놀이터(KLPGA) Tour Lee Seung-hyun (32) retires after 14 years of professional life. His team, NH Investment & Securities, prepared a special retirement ceremony for Lee Seung-hyun.
The NH Investment & Securities Golf Team announced on the 12th that Lee Seung-hyun, the chief member of the team, will have a retirement ceremony on the 14th. The retirement ceremony will be held before the awards ceremony at the 18th hole of Suwon Country Club (par 72, 6586 yards) in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province, where the KLPGA Tour NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship is being held.
Lee Seung-eun, nicknamed ‘put master’ for her accurate putt, worked as a member of NH Investment & Securities for 8 years from 2013 to 2020. Lee Seung-hyun, who made his KLPGA debut in 2009, has won 7 wins in his career, 6 of which were affiliated with NH Investment & Securities. However, Lee Seung-hyun lost his seed from 2021, making it difficult to see his face on the KLPGA regular tour.
An official from NH Investment & Securities explained, “I haven’t played as a member of the team since 2021, but I couldn’t forget his performance in the meantime.” It means that he valued loyalty to the players.
NH Investment & Securities also produced a special gift for Lee Seung-hyun, who is retiring. To match his nickname of ‘Putter Master’, he prepared a golden putter with a head made of pure gold.
After his retirement, Lee Seung-hyun plans to run a practice field to nurture juniors. Meanwhile, Lee Seung-hyun is also a member of the Honor Society, which donated more than 100 million won to the Community Chest of Korea.
