On the first day of the tournament, ‘3 consecutive birdies’ came from a total of 7 people. Unfortunately, no more than ‘4 consecutive birdies’ included in the official consecutive birdie statistics. However, at the ‘December KLPGA Tournament’ held in Vietnam, a hot buddy fight took place from the first day.
The first to catch ‘3 consecutive birdies’ in the first round of the PLK Pacific Rings Korea Championship (total prize money of 700 million won), the second tournament of the 2023 season of the Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour held at Twin Doves Golf Club (par 72) in Vietnam on the 16th. The main character was ‘returned Ahn So-hyun’. After playing on the Dream Tour for two years, he earned a ticket to the 2023 KLPGA Tour through a seed match. Since he is more popular because of his fashion sense and star quality rather than competition results, his surprise lead was enough to attract great attention.
Starting with the morning group, she made a series of birdies on holes 2, 3, and 4 (above par 4), and Ahn So-hyun’s name rose to the top of the leaderboard. For a while, his name took the sole lead, but his hardship began when he made his first bogey at the 5th hole (par 3). A bogey called a bogey, and a double bogey called a double bogey. In the 8th and 9th holes (par 4 above), he made consecutive bogies and forgot all the number of strokes he had made with 3 consecutive birdies. Even par in the first half wasn’t a bad score. 메이저놀이터
However, in the second half, the shot faltered more. The continuous bogey that started at the 8th hole in the first half continued to the 10th (par 4) and 11th hole (par 5), and I was able to catch my breath with the birdie on the 12th hole (par 4), but the joy of the birdie was short-lived, and this time the double bogey continued. Double bogies came out on holes 13 and 15 (above par 4). Ahn So-hyun, who started with 3 consecutive birdies but suffered from a lot of bogeys and double bogeys, took comfort with a birdie on the last 18th hole (par 5) and finished the 18th hole like a roller coaster. In the end, Ahn So-hyun, who recorded a 4-over-par 76 and tied for 82nd, could not be relieved of passing the cut in her first competition of the new season.
After Ahn So-hyun, ‘three consecutive buddies’ followed, and Kim Min-byeol, Kim Ji-hyun, Park Hyun-kyung, Hwang Yeon-seo, Choi Ye-rim, and Madasom caught ‘three consecutive buddies’ in the order. Except for Ahn So-hyun, all other three birdie players were in the lead.
Park Hyeon-gyeong, the protagonist of the fourth “three consecutive birdies” in the middle of the seven, recorded a 5-under par 67 and tied for third place with Lee So-young. Park Hyeon-kyung and Lee So-yeong are both in a position where they can resolve the regret of finishing runner-up at the Hana Financial Group Singapore Women’s Open last week, as the final round was canceled due to bad weather. Park Hyun-kyung, who made a par streak to the 6th hole and caught birdies in a row on her 7th to 9th holes, reduced her 2 strokes with 3 birdies and 1 bogey in the second half. Lee So-young caught 5 birdies without bogey.
Kim Min-byeol, the top passer of the seed match who is raising expectations as a ‘large rookie’, made a successful debut with a 4 under par 68 by making 5 birdies, including 3 consecutive birdies on holes 5 to 7, and 1 bogey. paid Kim Ji-hyun and Choi Ye-rim were also listed in the group tied for 5th with a 4 under par 68 strokes. Lee Seung-yeon, Kim Min-seon 7, and Lee So-mi also tied for 5th with a 4 under par 68 strokes. Hwang Yeon-seo spent the first day with a tie for 16th place (2 under par, 70 strokes).The protagonist of the last ‘three consecutive birdies’ is Madasom, who ranked third in the rookie rankings last season. She started with the 10th hole and caught birdies on the 13th, 14th and 2nd holes as well. Madasom, who caught only 6 birdies without a bogey, finished the first round in a tie for the lead with Ko Ji-woo after hitting a 6-under-par 66.
