Han Jin-sun took the lead with two eagles to defend his title for the first time in his career.

Han Jin-sun shot a 2-under-par 20 in the final round of the Korea Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour Hai-One Resort Women’s Open (total prize money of 8 million won) held today (7th) at Hai-One Country Club in Jeongseon-gun


to win with a four-round total of 65-under-par 4.

After winning the tournament for the first time in 14 games last year

Han Jin-sun enjoyed the joy of winning the tournament for the second time in a row and his second individual victory this year.

The prize money for the championship is 144 million won.

Han Jin-sun jumped to 14th place in the prize money ranking (349.8

million won).

Han said

I didn’t feel it after winning my first championship 먹튀검증사이트

which I was looking forward to so much

last year

and I don’t feel it this time either.

Now that I’ve achieved one of my two goals this year

defending my title and winning a major

I’m going to try to win a major next.

This year’s 12th edition of the Hai One Resort Women’s Open is Han Jin-seon’s second consecutive title after Lim Hee-jung

but it is the first time Han Jin-sun has won two consecutive years.

Lim Hee-jung won her second consecutive title in 2020 due to COVID-19 and 2021 after winning the tournament in 2019.

He is the third player to win this tournament twice

after Yoo So-yeon (2009 and 2015) and Lim Hee-jung.

Ahead of the tournament

he said

So far this season

we are in the process of preparing for the second consecutive Women’s Open at Hai One Resort.

I looked forward to this competition.

When I come to this course

I feel good and comfortable

said Han

who was confident in defending his title

and pulled off a thrilling comeback victory with two shot eagles on the day.

This is the third time he has won on the KLPGA Tour with two shot eagles.

Kim Se-young won the 2013 Hanwha Financial Classic and Choi Hye-jin won the 2017 Chojeong Carbonated Water Yongpyeong Resort Open by hitting two shot eagles in the final round.

Han Jin-seon

who entered the final round tied for third place

two strokes behind leader Lee Je-young

had a frustrating game in which he was unable to drop one stroke until the fifth hole.

However, a 5-meter birdie putt on the par-3 sixth hole put Han in the lead, as his second shot from 161 yards on the par-4 seventh hole caught an eagle that was sucked into the hole.

Han said

I didn’t even think about the eagle because the pin position was difficult.”

With the momentum rising

Han made a birdie on the 10th hole (par 4) and then shot eagle on the 11th hole (par 5).

The ball, hit with a wedge from 100 yards away

disappeared into the cup.

I think it was a lucky day.

When the second eagle came out

I thought

This is my golf course.

Trailing with a five-stroke lead

Han Jin-sun holed a 3-meter birdie putt on the par-3 16th hole to drive a wedge.

Han, who won the final round by three strokes last year

overturned the lead by two strokes this time to win both times with come-from-behind wins on the final day.

Lim Jin-hee, who started the final round tied for third place with Han Jin-seon, chased down by one stroke

but could not stop Han’s momentum and had to settle for tied second place (8-under-par 280) by six strokes.

The two-time winner finished in the top 10 for the eighth time this season

making her the most frequent top-10 player alongside Park Ji-young.

With this runner-up finish

Jin Hee Lim moved up to the joint lead with Park Ji Young in the grand prize points.

Lim Jin-hee also rose to third place in the prize money ranking (584.28 million won).

Mada Som, who dropped three strokes

Lee So-mi

who shot 2-under-par

and Lee Ga-young

who shot an even-par 72

are also tied for second place (8-under-par 280) with Im Jin-hee.

Park Min-Ji shot a 3-under-par 69 to move up to tied for sixth place (7-under-par 281).

Lee Lee Young

who entered the final round in the lead

lost four strokes and slipped to tied for 12th place (5-under-par 283).

Lee Ye-won finished tied for 31st (even-par 288) but retained his No. 1 spot in the money rankings.

Yoo So-yeon, who entered as a featured player

shot a 2-over-par 74 to finish tied for 39th place (1-over-par 289).
