Kang Jae-min-Park Jo-eun Win Boys’ and Girls’ High School Second Qualifier at PLK Cup Junior for AJGA

The second qualifying round of the PLK Cup Junior for AJGA, organized by Pacific Links Korea (PLK), has come to a successful conclusion.

The tournament was played over 18 holes of stroke play at Gunsan CC in Gunsan, Jeolla Province, with 69 male and female players participating.

Kang Jae-min (junior at Jeju Jeilbangtong Telecommunication High School) won the men’s high school division with a 2-over par (72) and Park Jo-eun (freshman at Mankyung Girls’ High School) won the women’s high school division with a 1-over par (71).

In the boys’ and girls’ secondary school division, Lee Jung-woo (3rd grade, Sincheon Middle School) and Esther Kwon (8th grade, Apex Learning Virtual School) took the top spots with 2-over par (72) and even par (70), respectively. The winners were awarded the PLK Cup Junior Qualifying trophy, a scholarship of KRW 300,000, and ranking points.

Secondary school boys’ winner Lee Jung-woo repeated his victory from the previous edition of the tournament, while secondary school girls’ player Esther Kwon was the top performer in the entire secondary school division.

Following the success of last year’s tournament, Pacific Links Korea officially launched the PLK Cup Junior for AJGA and decided to hold the tournament year-round to further foster golf dreams.

The junior players participating in the year-round PLK Cup will compete in the finals later this year, and the winner will receive a ticket to the Choi Kyung Joo Foundation Texas Junior Championship by Pacific Rings Korea next year in the United States, as well as an all-expenses-paid trip, including airfare and accommodation.

The AJGA is the world’s leading junior golf association with nearly 7,000 youth players (ages 12-19) and organizes junior competitions in various 사설토토 formats across the United States.

Many of the top players on the PGA Tour and LPGA Tour, including Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Inbee Park, Jordan Spieth, and Lexi Thompson, who won this year’s Masters Tournament, have come through the AJGA.

The AJGA is where junior golfers prove their skills, and if they excel in the AJGA, they can be recruited by U.S. college golf teams and have an easier and faster path to the U.S. PGA.

Pacific Rings Korea is actively involved in the development of junior golfers and has recently sponsored the AJGA tournament with the Choi Kyung Joo Foundation to help develop junior golfers in Korea and across Asia.
