At the KLPGA Yongpyong Open, the tee shot hit the tree twice and went to the fairway.

“After hearing the sound of the tree being hit, I thought, ‘Oh, I’m screwed’ for two seconds.”

Park Hyun-kyung, who won the McCall-Mona Yongpyong Open on the final day of the Korea Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) Tour held at the Birch Hill Golf Club (par 72) in Pyeongchang-gun, Gangwon-do on the 30th after an extension, was lucky enough to have her tee shots heading into the forest hit the trees twice and land on the fairway.

Park Hyun-kyung hit her tee shots to the right repeatedly in the first extension on the same hole as the 18th hole (par 5) in the third round. Both times, the ball hit a tree and came in to a place where there was no problem with the next shot.

In the overtime, this luck led to a 5m birdie opportunity, and Park Hyun-kyung, who made a birdie putt, set a new record of winning the overtime for two weeks in a row and her third win of the season.

Park Hyun-kyung said, “Originally, for the 18th hole, you have to hit the tee shot to the right side of the fairway. But strangely, today I wanted to hit it straight to the right.” “But the first time, I hit it open, and the second time, the wind suddenly blew strong and I hit the ball to the right.” I looked back and said, “I was pushed back.”

“I was lucky both times,” said Park Hyun-kyung, laughing. “At first, I heard the sound of hitting a tree and thought, ‘Oh, I’m screwed,’ but two seconds later I saw the ball.”

Park Hyun-kyung, who won the BC Card-Hankyung Ladies Cup on the 23rd after going into overtime for a total of four rounds, said with joy, “I never imagined winning two weeks in a row. It was something I only dreamed of. I received a miraculous gift.”

He smiled brightly, saying, “After winning 3 times in the first half of the year, I remembered the time when I was only runner-up 9 times. Back then, it was difficult to win like that, but I won despite playing comfortably and enjoying the game.” 슬롯사이트

“I feel like my efforts were not in vain,” said Park Hyun-kyung. “I feel like it was worth it because I increased my driver distance by about 10 yards by building up my strength through weight training every day for six weeks during the winter training camp.”

Park Hyun-kyung, who tied for first place in prize money and target points, explained that the driving force behind her stellar performance this year was the increase in driving distance, saying, “Thanks to the increased distance, I was able to hold a shorter club, which increased my green hit rate and created more (birdie) opportunities.”

Until last year, she was the player with the best putting on the KLPGA tour, but when it was pointed out that she was making more putting mistakes this year, Park Hyun-kyung claimed, “It is an optical illusion that it looks like many birdie opportunities are missed because the green hit rate has increased.

“I can handle missing putts now,” he said, adding, “the damage from missed putts has been reduced.”

Park Hyun-kyung, who was anxious after a three-putt bogey on the third hole (par 5) in the third round that day, said, “I made a bogey because the short putts in the beginning didn’t go in, but I thought it was a tonic,” and “I also got the ball on the green in two tries on the par 5 10th hole, but the flow of the game was affected by a three-putt par.”

Park Hyun-kyung, who fell behind Choi Ye-rim by one stroke after continuing her par streak from the 10th to the 15th hole, said, “I looked at the leaderboard in the middle. I wasn’t nervous or impatient at all. I believed that my chance would come soon because there was only a one-stroke difference.”

Park Hyun-kyung, who became tied for the lead with a birdie just a short distance away on the 16th hole, was sent to overtime because she failed to make a 3m birdie putt on the 18th hole, but in the overtime, she made a 5m birdie putt and confirmed the win.

Park Hyun-kyung said, “I wasn’t confident in the birdie putt on the 18th hole in the third round because it was a downhill slice line. However, I was confident in the birdie putt in the extension from the moment I marked it. It was the distance I’ve made the most of this year and my favorite. If you agree with your dad (who is my caddie), you have a very high chance of making it in, and this time, our opinions were exactly the same. That’s why I was confident in the putt.”

Park Hyun-kyung, who recorded a winning percentage of 4 wins and 1 loss in overtime with this win, said, “I didn’t think I was strong in overtime, but after winning in overtime in the last tournament, I felt I had grown a lot mentally and technically.” She added, “Winning in overtime for two weeks in a row is the KLPGA’s best.” “It’s my first time on tour, so I think it will be helpful to bring back good memories during the next overtime period,” he said.

He explained why he is strong in overtime, saying, “When it goes into overtime, I tend to relax and think that whether I win or lose, it’s a 50-50 decision,” and “I enjoy even that moment.”

Park Hyun-kyung laughed, saying, “It would be better to hit the last hole with a 5-shot lead than to win in overtime, but it doesn’t work out the way I wanted.”

Park Hyun-kyung, who was only one of three players with two wins in 2020 and has never won a notable individual title, repeatedly expressed her desire to win the grand prize, saying, “I definitely want to win the grand prize rather than the prize money king.”

Park Hyun-kyung, whose season prize money exceeded 880 million won and total prize money exceeded 3.9 billion won, said, “My goal was to achieve 10 wins before retirement, and to exceed 1 billion won in prize money this year and 4 billion won in total prize money, but I think I need to adjust it slightly upward.” “It’s the same,” he expressed his hope. 토토사이트
