Lee Ga-young won her first career title at the 98th tournament with seven birdies and one bogey in the final fourth round of the 2022 KLPGA Tour Dongbu Construction-Korea Land Trust Championship (total prize money of 1 billion won) at Iksan Country Club (par 72, 6,641 yards) in Iksan, Jeollabuk-do on the 16th.
This tournament is a way to give higher scores to players who play aggressively in a modified stableford way. 스포츠토토탑
Albatross 8 points, Eagle 5 points, Buddy 2 points, Par 0 points, bogey -1 points, and double bogey -3 points were given to determine the ranking by the combined score of the 4th round. Lee Ga-young added 15 points in the fourth round to win with 49 points.
Lee Ga-young, who had been consistent until July without a single cut, withdrew from the August and September tournaments and was eliminated from consecutive cuts.
The reason for the slump is that he lost 6kg due to the stress of winning, poor physical strength, and the aftermath of Corona.
However, it was not the case that it would collapse like this. He regained his mind, gained 2kg of weight through exercise and diet, and tried to stay in normal condition.
Lee Ga-young’s fan club also played a part in that part. In particular, in the fourth round of the 22nd Hite Career Championship on October 9, Lee Ga-young’s fans impressed Lee Ga-young by singing a birthday song to Lee Ga-young, who moves the second shot after the tee shot.
Lee Ga-young, who won the championship, said, “I’m happy to win the championship that I’ve really dreamed of, and I’m still incredibly happy.”
As for my future goal, I would like to think more about the present I face rather than next season or the far future. There are only a few tournaments left this season, so I will aim to add more wins with confidence and finish the season,” he said.
