“I feel like I’m going to cry at the under par for 4 days in a row…” Ko Jin-young, who found the feeling, now challenges to defend the title

Ko Jin-young (28) will challenge to defend her title in Singapore this week.

In the final round of the LPGA Tour Honda LPGA Thailand held at the Siam Country Club (par 72) in Pattaya, Thailand on the 26th, Ko Jin-young scored 8 under par 64, eliminating 1 eagle and 6 birdies.

Ko Jin-young, who recorded a final total of 16 under par 272, finished the tournament in a tie for 6th place. She started the season on a good note, finishing in the top 10 in her first event of the year.

In July of last year, she recorded under par for four consecutive days, about seven months after the Amundi Evian Championship. It’s the first time since the Evian Championship that she’s even finished in the top 10. She also achieved a score of 8 under par or less in 1 year and 3 months after the final round of the CME Group Tour Championship (9 under par), which was the final match of the season in November 2021.

The 2022 season was the worst year for Ko Jin-young. The season started off well. In what was her first appearance of the season, she won the HSBC Women’s World Championship and recaptured the world number one ranking. 

But she started to tangle from the AIG Women’s Open in August. She was held back by her wrist injury, which was a chronic disease. Jin-Young Ko, who took a break for about two months, accepted her worst record of 80 strokes at the BMW Ladies Championship held in Korea in October, and she eventually withdrew. She wasn’t in good shape at the time, so she couldn’t practice her shots properly while she was resting.

Ko Jin-young tightened his shoelaces again ahead of the new season. He reunited with coach Lee Si-woo again, and also withdrew from participating in the Hilton Grand Vacations of Champions, the opening day of the LPGA Tour in January, which was scheduled to appear to recover his wrist. Ko Jin-young, who prepared meticulously for the season, received a top 10 report card in the first tournament of the season. 안전놀이터

He said, “I think it’s been a few months since I hit under par for all 4 days, but honestly it seems like it’s been over 5 months. That’s why I’m going to cry. I can’t help but talk about last year. It was also a year that I will never forget because it was so difficult in terms of golf. I am grateful that I finished even better because it was my first tournament after a difficult time last year, and there is nothing to be regretted. My swing on the course was better than I thought. It came out well, and there are still some shortcomings, but I think I’ve improved a lot.”

Ko Jin-young will participate as the defending champion at the HSBC Women’s World Championship, which will be held in Singapore from March 2nd. This is the place where she defeated Lee Jung-eun (27) last year and won a thrilling come-from-behind victory.

He replied, “I feel new, and when I always play defense, I want to do a little better, so I actually put more effort into it. I wonder how well I can get rid of that power.
