Yoo Hae-ran (22, Daol Financial Group), a ‘proven rookie’, took her first opportunity to win the LPGA tour.
Hae-Ran Ha reduced 4 strokes with 6 birdies and 2 bogeys in the 3rd round of the JM Eagle LA Championship (total prize money of 3 million dollars), which continued at Wilshire CC (par 71) in Los Angeles on the 30th (Korean time). With a median total of 7 under par and 206 strokes, he tied for second place with a two-stroke difference with Cheyenne Knight (USA), the sole leader at 9 under par. Hannah Green (Australia), who has two wins on the LPGA Tour, is also second. The lead knight is a player who has won one tour.
Yoo Hae-ran, who was tied for 8th place by 3 strokes with the leader in the 2nd round, showed off her tee shot accuracy by missing the fairway only once in the 3rd round. Although he missed the green six times, his calm crisis management shone as he did not lose a stroke in both times from the bunker.
After a birdie on the first hole, he wrote a bogey on hole 3 (par 4), but Hae-ran Yoo, who took two birdies afterwards, changed the mood with three birdies after a bogey in the second half. In the 16th hole (par 4), he even made a chip-in birdie.크크크벳
Yoo Hae-ran is a player who drew attention by winning the 2019 Korea Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour Jeju Samdasoo Masters, beating Park In-bi and Ko Jin-young as an amateur. The following year, she won the same event, beating Lee Jeong-eun 6 in second place. After winning a total of five wins on the KLPGA tour, she passed the qualifying series in December last year to win the right to participate in the LPGA tour. She participated in four competitions in her debut season, and her best result was a tie for 7th at the March Drive-On Championship, her first competition. Currently ranked 3rd in Rookie of the Year points. It is alleviating the regret of his tie for 56th at the season’s first major, the Chevron Championship, last week.
India’s Aditi Ashok, who led the second round, lost one stroke and was pushed back to a tie for 5th place at 5 under par, and Annarin, who was in her second year, tied for 7th place at 4 under par. World No. 1 Nellie Corda (USA) is tied for 12th with a 3-under par, and Jin-Young Ko, who is ranked 3rd in the world, is tied for 53rd with a 2-over par. Ko Jin-young lost 4 strokes and fell 41 places in the rankings due to iron shot hunting, which missed the green 11 times.
