“I take pressure well and enjoy it” before going for a grand slam

Jeon In-ji, 29, is aiming for a Grand Slam in the remaining majors this year.

Jeon will compete in the U.S. Women’s Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour’s Dana-Farber Open ($1.75 million purse) at Highland Meadows Golf Club (par 71) in Sylvania, Ohio, starting on Thursday (July 14).

After this tournament, she will take a week off before heading to Europe. The European schedule is important for Jeon. Starting with the Amundie Evian Championship on July 27, she has a string of majors, including the AIG Women’s Open on August 10.안전놀이터

With four career wins on the LPGA Tour, Inji Jeon has three of them in majors. She won the 2015 U.S. Women’s Open, the 2016 Evian Championship and the 2022 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. If she wins the final major of the season, the AIG Women’s Open, she will complete a “career grand slam” by winning four of the five majors.

He finished tied for 18th at the Chevron Championship, his first major of the season, with a final total of 2-under-par 286. Last year, he finished runner-up in a playoff at the AIG Women’s Open. This year, he’ll be hoping for a podium finish.

“I hope I can do well in the majors,” said Inji Jeon. The Evian Championship is where I have my lowest score, so it motivates me to set myself a different challenge every time I go. The AIG Women’s Open is another motivator because it’s a Grand Slam. I will prepare well and repay my supporters with a good performance.”

She also enjoys the pressure of achieving a career grand slam. “I played under pressure at the Chevron Championships this year. I accepted the pressure better than I thought and enjoyed it. I think it makes me more motivated than if I didn’t have any motivation or goals. As a player, I want to prepare by focusing on how I can play well and how I can finish with better shots.”

“I’m tired from traveling from the West Coast to the East Coast after the US Women’s Open. I didn’t sleep well last night, but I’m trying to be as fit as possible. I hope the good momentum from the hole-in-one will carry over to the rest of the tournament and I can do well.”
