Korean women’s golf, 2 losses to Australia

In the 17th hole, Hannah Green-Sera Camp lost by 2 holes, and Jeon In-ji-Choi Hye-jin went to the 18th hole with Lee Min-ji-Stephanie Kiriaku, but also lost by 2 holes.
Korea aims to win the match against Thailand on the 6th and Japan on the 7th.

Thailand, featuring sisters Eriya-Moriya Jutanugarn and Patty Tawatanagit-Ataya Titikkun, won two games over Japan to lead Group B with Australia on the first day. In Group A, Sweden took the lead by winning both games against England, and the United States and China exchanged one win each 토토사이트.
In the group stage, two four-ball matches are played, with 1 point awarded for a win, 0.5 points for a draw and 0 points for a loss. From the semi-final tournament, there will be one foursome match and two single match play matches in which two players from the same team alternately hit the same ball. In the tournament, the first team to score 2 points wins.
The International Crown, a women’s golf national competition founded in 2014, resumed after 5 years as the corona crisis overlapped after the 3rd tournament held in Incheon in 2018. Spain became the first winning team in 2014, the United States in 2016, and Korea in 2018. Choi Hye-jin said, “It has been a long time since I played as a national team, so she was very nervous. She had a few holes early, and it’s a pity she missed them,” she said. She said Jeon In-ji, “It is the result that has already ended, so it is important to accept it rather than regret it. After today, if I do well, I will write a drama, and I think that is the beauty of golf,” she said, adding, “I will do my best without giving up until the end.”
