When the tee shot hit with a 6-iron landed on the front of the green and rolled in, Hong Ye-eun shared her joy with her father, Hong Tae-sik, who served as her caddy, and the players she played with. 안전놀이터

Hong Ye-eun, whom we met after the second round, smiled and said, “I did it in the practice round, but I’m even happier because it’s the first time I’ve made a hole-in-one during a competition.”

Regarding the hole-in-one situation, he said, “Normally, I would have hit it with a 7-iron, but it got a little cold and the ball didn’t seem to go out, so I tried a control shot with a 6-iron. The ball rolled so well that I thought it was going to go in, but it actually went in.” “At that time, I just thought, ‘Oh,’ and I immediately turned around and checked for injuries.”

Regarding the Deoksiana bed worth 40 million won he received as an injury, he said, “I’m going to discuss it with my mom and decide what to do with it.”

Hong Ye-eun is a ‘rookie’ on the KLPGA tour this season, but she is a familiar name in the golf world.

After excelling as an amateur by winning the 2019 Australian Women’s Amateur Championship, she began her professional career in the United States. 슬롯사이트

After playing in the Symmetra Tour, the second division tour of the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA), she has also been active in the LPGA regular tour starting in 2022.

However, due to health problems last year, she decided to move to Korea and debuted on the KLPGA tour this season after going through the seed rankings match.

As of now, I am going through a harsh adjustment period.

After placing 72nd in the first competition, the Doosan We’ve Championship in April, he suffered the bitter taste of missing the cut in six consecutive competitions.

Last week, she achieved her best result of the season by tying for 17th place at the Sh Suhyup Bank MBN Women’s Open, but it is not easy to pass the cut again in this tournament.

He finished in the 80th place with 2 over par in the first round, and despite reducing one stroke including a hole-in-one in the second round of the day, he remained in the 70th place as of 1 p.m.

Looking back on the tournament, Hong Ye-eun said, “I’m disappointed. I had a good feel for the shot, but the putt didn’t go in very well. I had the most birdie opportunities yesterday and today among recent tournaments, but the green was slower than expected. After today’s hole-in-one, I had opportunities in two holes as well.” “I was there, but I think I was conscious of the cut,” he pondered.

Still, he said, “I don’t have to worry about food and accommodations because I’m on tour in Korea. The best thing is that the travel time is short.” He added, “It’s been about a month since I changed my coach, and my confidence in my shots and swings has improved.” “I think I need to let go of my impatience and just think about each shot and hit it,” he said, pledging to bounce back in the next season.

Next week, the DB Group Korea Women’s Open, a major tournament, will be held at Rainbow Hills in Eumseong, North Chungcheong Province, which is famous for its difficult course.

Hong Ye-eun said, “I heard a lot about the course, so I tried it. It was just as I heard,” but emphasized, “Now, I have to stop making excuses and play really well. I will prepare well according to the course.” 토토사이트 추천
