Seong Yu-jin (Hanwha Q Cells) became the sole leader at the LPGA Tour Lotte Championship (total prize money: $2 million, prize money: $300,000). However, the last 4 rounds are expected to be intense.
At the 2023 LPGA Lotte Championship held at Hoakalay Country Club (par 72, 6303 yards) in Eva Beach, Oahu, Hawaii, USA on the 15th (Korean time)카지노사이트, Sung Eugene reduced one stroke with two birdies and one bogey, with a median total of 9 under par 207 scored a hit.
Although Seong Yu-jin only reduced one stroke, she took the lead by one stroke ahead of Korean-Australian player Grace Kim, Georgia Hall (England), and Linea Strom (Sweden) who were tied for second place.
Seong Yu-jin, who qualified for the LPGA Lotte Championship this season by winning the KLPGA Tour Lotte Championship last year, will become a regular member and will be able to advance to the LPGA if she wins the tournament.
However, Seong Yu-jin’s final 4th round is expected to be formidable. This is because as many as 13 players are tightly packed with a three-stroke difference. She is only three strokes ahead of five other players, including Bailey Tardy (USA) and Brooke Henderson (Canada), who are tied for 9th. In the 4th round, the key is how focused she plays.
Still, the third round was calm for Seong Yu-jin, who had jumped to her co-lead through her last two rounds. She was sorry to miss her birdie opportunities on several occasions, but also made good par saves.
Seong Yu-jin, who made a birdie from the 1st hole, also made a birdie on the par 4 13th hole with a stable shot, reducing her two strokes.
However, in the 14th hole, I had to play hard due to a tee shot mistake and recorded a disappointing bogey. He had a chance to finish the game with a sole lead by two strokes, but unfortunately he was only one stroke ahead. Afterwards, he deviated slightly from the 15th to the 18th hole, but finished with a par and kept the lead alone.
Natakrita Wongtawirap (Thailand), who was tied for the lead with Sung Yu-jin until the day before, caught 3 birdies, but recorded 4 bogeys and lost one stroke, dropping to 5th place with an interim total of 7 under par 209 strokes. However, it is still two strokes behind Seong Yu-jin, so a come-from-behind victory is possible.
Meanwhile, there were no Korean players in the top 10 other than Seong Yu-jin. Choi Hye-jin (Lotte) cut 3 strokes, but tied for 18th place with Hwang Yu-min with 3 under par 213 strokes. Lee Il-hee (Volvik) tied for 32nd with a 1-under par of 215, and Lee Mi-hyang tied for 40th with a 1-over-par of 216.
Kim Hyo-joo (Lotte), who won the tournament last year, reduced one stroke in the third round, but could not make up for the sluggish 6-over performance the previous day, finishing tied with Hong Ye-eun (CJ) for 47th place with a 1-over par of 217 strokes.
