From a hole-in-one car injury to a chance to win… Han Jin-sun co-leads

 On the first day of the KLPGA Championship, the first major event of the KLPGA Tour season, Jin-sun Han made a hole-in-one and tied for the lead.

On the first day of the tournament held on the 27th at the Lakewood Country Club Mountain Road and Forest Course (par 72) in Yangju, Gyeonggi Province, Han Jin-sun hit a hole-in-one with three birdies and 5-under-par 67 without a bogey, and tied for the lead with Park Gyeol and Bang Shin-sil.

Han Jin-sun made a hole-in-one on the 17th hole, a par 3 hole 170 yards away. He teed off with an 8-iron due to a tailwind, but after falling on the green, he rolled and was sucked into the hole. Han Jin-sun received a Mercedes-Benz electric car worth 92 million won as a hole-in-one injury. 안전놀이터

This hole-in-one is Han Jin-sun’s third hole-in-one. He recorded a hole-in-one in the first round of the 2020 Lotte Cantata Women’s Open and the first round of the 2022 Mediheal Hankook Ilbo Championship, and this is the first time he has received a car due to a hole-in-one injury.

This gave Han Jin-sun her second chance at a major tournament, following her first win at the High1 Resort Women’s Open last year. Jin-sun Han said of her after the match, “She faltered on the last day of last year’s Hite Jinro Championships, and she didn’t win. From then on, she dreamed of winning a major championship.” I feel like I’m one step closer to that dream today, so I’ll do my best for the remaining three days,” she said. Han Jin-sun entered the final round as the lead at the Hite Jinro Championship last October, but she allowed a come-from-behind defeat to Park Min-ji.

Park Gyeol, who is called ‘the Barbie doll of the field’, reduced 5 strokes to 6 birdies and 1 bogey to join the lead. Park Gyeol committed a bogey on hole 2 (par 3), but caught 6 birdies on the remaining holes. With this, Park Gyeol is looking forward to his second career victory after winning the SK Networks Seoul Economy Ladies Classic in 2018.

Rookie Bang Sin-sil lost 3 strokes due to bogey and double bogey on holes 1 and 2, but finished the first round with a tie for the lead with 8 birdies, including 5 birdies in a row from holes 14 to 18. Bang Shin-sil said, “After finishing the Dream Tour, I went straight to the regular tour, so I didn’t seem to be able to adapt well to the fast green speed at the beginning of the game.” .

Song Ga-eun walked in place until the 10th hole, exchanging two bogeys with a birdie, but caught only four birdies in the remaining holes and tied for 4th place with a 4 under par 68 strokes with Si-woo Jeong, Woo-ri Jeon, and Do-young Park.

Kim A-lim, who started defending the title, returned home immediately after finishing the Chevron Championship, the first major tournament of the LPGA tour season, and was in a difficult situation due to jet lag, but scored a 3-under-par 69 with 4 birdies and 1 bogey, and tied with Lee So-young, Kim So-i, Kwon Seo-yeon and Lee Je-young. Started 8th.
