스포츠토토World-class players playing on the LPGA Tour sent love calls to Jiyoung Park and other Korean Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) players.
Lee Min-ji, an Australian Korean who is ranked 7th in the world in women’s golf and winner of the previous LPGA tournament, the Kroger Queen City Championship, recommended Ji-young Park to challenge the American stage at the Hana Financial Group Championship press conference held at the Hana Global Campus in Seo-gu, Incheon on the 20th.
Lee Min-ji said, “If I were a player like Ji-young Park who won 3-4 times a year on the Korean Tour, I would be curious about how well I would perform on the world stage and what level I would be at.” “It’s the same,” he said.
He added, “It takes a lot of sacrifice to play on the LPGA, but Choi Hye-jin and Yoo Hae-ran are adapting well. If they overcome those difficulties, the LPGA tour will be fun, make friends, and I think they will be able to adapt well.” .
Patty Thavatanakit (Thailand), ranked 80th in the world and winner of the 2021 major tournament ANA Inspiration, also recommended the Korean player take on the challenge. He said, “The LPGA has the best players in the world, so the competition is fierce,” and “I think the LPGA is a true international tour as it is broadcast a lot and has good players from each country. There are many famous players and the competition is fierce. “The prize money is big every week,” he explained.
Tabathanakit said, “There are many difficulties to play in the LPGA. It is not easy to think of home and adjust to the food, but if I can overcome those and continue my career as a player and professional, I think I will become a really great player.” .
The Korean players did not immediately respond, but expressed their intention to learn by watching the LPGA Tour players play.
Park Ji-young, who is the top winner with three wins on the KLPGA Tour this year, said, “I hope this will be a tournament that will help me gain more confidence for the remaining tournaments,” and “I hope this will be a tournament that will allow me to be a little more relaxed about my play and see things from a broader perspective.”
Kim Su-ji, who won the Hanwha Classic, a major tournament last month, said, “This week’s tournament is actually a domestic tournament with many prominent players from overseas, but it feels like an overseas tournament.” She added, “Playing with overseas players like Lee Min-ji and Lydiago “I hope it will be a week of learning and feeling,” he said.
Last year’s Rookie of the Year Yewon Lee, who stands out with two wins, including her first win of her career, said, “I’m so happy to be able to play with Lydia Go for the first time. I always watch it on TV, but just watching her play from the side has taught me a lot. “I think it will be helpful,” he said.
Kim Min-byeol, who is trying to win the Rookie of the Year title, said, “This match will feature a lot of other overseas players, so it seems like it will be a match with a new atmosphere. I think it will be a good experience and learn a lot.”
