On the 21st, the round of 16 of the fourth round of the KLPGA Tour “2022 Doosan Match Play Championship” (total prize money of 800 million won, prize money of 200 million won) was held at Radena Golf Club (par 72/6,350 yards) in Chuncheon, Gangwon-do.
It is a different form of match play from the previous tournament. It’s a game where I have to beat my opponent to advance to the top game. Moreover, the round of 16 has intensified since the 21st. The players didn’t even meet eyes except for a simple greeting before the play. In other competitions, four players posed together and talked about jokes and simple stories to relax.
Park Min-ji and Hong Jung-min, who will depart at 7:50 a.m. on the seventh day of the round of 16, were different. The previous players took tee shots in a cold atmosphere and continued with a second shot.
After Hong Jung-min’s tee shot, Park Min-ji approached first and talked, and the two players made a refreshing pose toward the reporters and moved for a second shot. It meant that senior Park Min-ji should compete in good faith by relieving the tension of junior Hong Jung-min.
Regarding match play, Park Min-ji said, “Actually, I don’t think it suits me well. That’s too cruel.”I’m a player, so I have no choice but to do it, but the world of victory is so cruel that I’m scared, so I don’t think the ceremony is coming out as well as last week,” he said. 바카라
But the game was fierce. Park Min-ji, who aimed to win her second consecutive tournament as a “defending champion,” led by one hole until the 17th hole, but allowed Hong Jung-min to come from behind on the 18th hole to tie the game. He allowed a turnaround in the 19th overtime to finish the game unfortunately.
Hong Jung-min, who won the extra time against Park Min-ji, beat Lim Hee-jung in the semifinals and Lee Ye-won in the final to lift his first trophy of his life.
Meanwhile, Park Min-ji will rest for physical fitness at the KLPGA Tour’s E1 Charity Open (total prize money of 800 million won) at the South Springs Golf Course (par 72, 6,546 yards) in Icheon, Gyeonggi-do, on the 27th.
