3 consecutive victories in a single tournament that only 4 players have stepped on… Park Min-ji writes a new history in the KLPGA

Will there be another Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) 3-winner, which has only been achieved so far? For the 5th time, Park Min-ji challenged herself to win her 3rd consecutive KLPGA tournament.

Park Min-ji will participate in the KLPGA Tour NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship (total prize money of 800 million won) held at the Suwon Country Club (par 72) in Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do for three days from the 12th.

This is why Park Min-ji was noticeably more happy than winning other competitions when she won her first championship in this competition in 2021 and achieved her second consecutive victory last year.

Park Min-ji, who is gradually improving her condition by placing in the top 10 in two of her four tournaments this season, has ambitions to decorate her first win of the season with three consecutive victories in meaningful tournaments.

Park Ji-young, the first in the prize money ranking, Lee Ye-won, the domestic opening match champion, Lee So-young, who ranked first in the grand prize points without a win, and Park Hyun-kyung, the third in prize money, are also candidates for the championship. The same goes for Park Bo-gyeom, who enjoyed the thrill of her first win in her life with a hole-in-one on her final day at the Kyochon Honey Ladies Open, played 36 holes due to bad weather. The rise of the three rookies Min-Byeol Kim, Yu-Min Hwang, and Shin-Sil Bang, who are shaking the game in the early stages of the KLPGA Tour, is also a fun event not to be missed.
