2022 is an unforgettable year for Lee Ga-young (23). Lee Ga-young, who debuted on the Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) tour in 2019 as a former member of her national team, has always been at the top, but has not been able to lift the championship trophy. Last year, she played in the championship group 5 times, but only finished in the top 3 3 times, including 1 runner-up. . At one time, she was even told that she was ‘lack of support’ and ‘specialized in runner-up’.

Her ordeal was another. In the first half of this year, she showed steady and stable skills without missing a single cut, but suddenly she was infected with Corona 19 ahead of her first tournament in the second half of the year, the Jeju Samdasoo Masters. She took a week off and returned to the field, but due to her aftereffects, she lost 8kg in weight and was unable to regain her condition for a while. After her return, in eight contests she failed to pass the cut three times, and even withdrew on one occasion. Some even said, “I think winning this year will be difficult.”

He did not lose his smile despite experiencing setbacks at the summit every time and quenched himself, saying, “I have a stronger desire to compete than anyone else,” and finally won the first victory in his life at the ‘2022 Dongbu Construction Korea Land Trust Championship’ last October. kissed on It was the first win she was thrilled to have ‘won’ in a difficult situation both physically and mentally.

The last tournament of this year’s KLPGA tour, which opened on the 16th at Twin Doves Golf Club (par 72) in Binh Duong, southern Vietnam, and the second tournament of the 2023 season, ‘PLK Pacific Rings Korea Championship with SBS Golf’ (total prize money of 700 million won ¤ prize money 1 26 million won), Lee Ga-young, whom I met at the event, said, “I heard that I was always only in second place, but this year I finally won the championship, so I think it will be a year I will never forget.” It seems that this year has been eventful. I am still satisfied,” he said, looking back on the year.

“I want to add more wins next year, and I hope to be in the top 10 in all indicators rather than winning a specific title,” he said. In the first round of the PLK Championship, Lee Ga-young recorded 2 birdies and 3 bogeys and shot a 1-over-par 73 to tie for 52nd place. It seemed that my ankle was caught in the hot weather, well over 30 degrees Celsius. 토토

He also revealed plans for the offseason. “After the tournament in Vietnam, I want to play golf clubs for a while. After confessing her honest heart, “I want to go to glamping and meet my friends,” he said, “I scheduled the winter battery training to go to Bangkok on January 15 next year and return home on March 3.” I felt that I lacked a lot. I think I need to build a lot of body,” he added.
