Lee Jung-min is the 14th and the 8th active player to record a double-digit multiplier in his personal career on the KLPGA Tour. Lee Jung-min had a sluggish season this year, finishing in the top 10 only once. However, with the victory on the day, the regret was washed away at once. In particular, on this day, unlike the first and second rounds, only four players, including Lee Jung-min, recorded under par due to strong winds. It was such a difficult course. However, the heat and strong winds of Vietnam were not a big obstacle for Lee Jung-min. Until the 13th hole, Lee Jung-min managed a perfect game with 11 under par. Lee Jung-min, with accurate iron shots, won comfortably with a generous score.
Meanwhile, Choi Ye-rim, who has only been runner-up four times since her professional debut, missed the opportunity to win this tournament as well. Choi Ye-rim lost 3 strokes with 1 birdie and 4 bogeys, and had to be satisfied with the runner-up with a final total of 6 under par 210 strokes. On this day, Seo Jin-jin, the only one who cut 2 strokes, took 3rd place at 5 under par. Ko Ji-woo collapsed with a quadruple bogey in the last 18 holes and lost a whopping 5 strokes on the day and fell to 7th place with a 3-under par.
