While the KLPGA Kyochon 1991 Ladies Open (total prize money of 800 million won) was reduced to 36 holes due to rain and wind in the southern region, Park Bo-gyeom (25), who has been on the tour for 3 years, is thrilled with his first win. enjoyed
Park Bo-gyeom recorded 4 under par 68 strokes with 4 birdies and 2 bogeys including 1 hole-in-one in the final 2nd round of the tournament held at Asiad Country Club (par 72) in Busan on the 7th.
Park Bo-gyeom, who recorded a final total of 7 under par 137 strokes, enjoyed the thrill of winning the KLPGA Tour for the first time since his regular tour debut in 2021. His winning prize is 144 million won.
Above all, the most gratifying thing is securing seed rights. Park Bo-gyeom, who passed the KLPGA Tour seeding match held in November last year in 33rd place, started this season as a partial seed. He was only able to compete in 132 or 144 garden competitions. There were 132 entries for this tournament.
By winning this tournament, he obtained a 2-year seed to stably play the KLPGA tour until 2025.
The tournament, which was originally scheduled to be held in three rounds instead of four rounds, was further reduced due to strong rain and wind. Inclement weather continued from the first day, making normal progress difficult, and the same was true on the 6th. In the end, the tournament was decided on a 36-hole scale.
Park Bo-gyeom, who finished the second round in a tie for second place, one stroke behind the leader Kim Woo-jung in the first round, made a bogey at the 10th hole, but immediately made up for the number of strokes with a birdie.
The 16th hole (par 3) was the highlight. In the 153-yard par 3 hole, a shot with an 8-iron was sucked into the hole cup, and I enjoyed the thrill of a hole-in-one. The prize hung in this hall is a luxury bed worth about 50 million won.
Park Bo-gyeom, who took the lead by two strokes, caught birdies on both par-3 holes 3 and 6 in the second half, widening the gap with his competitors. And he kept his lead on the remaining holes and confirmed the championship.스포츠토토
