After three days of sunshine, clouds began to gather on the fifth day of the Korean Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour’s Etosha Oil Championship as the final round began.
Light rain fell at Elysian Jeju Country Club from the morning and turned into heavy rain as the tournament got underway.
Even after two suspensions, the rain didn’t let up, causing water to pool on the greens. The tournament organisers eventually cancelled the fourth round and decided to determine the winner based on the results of the first three rounds.
While Sung was lucky to be in the lead after three rounds, others were not so fortunate.
Kim Jae-hee was in the lead before play was suspended for the second time at 2.09pm.
Kim, who hadn’t won since debuting on the regular tour in 2021, 카지노사이트 started the fourth round in a tie for second place, one shot behind the leader.
After back-to-back birdies on the third and fourth holes, she birdied the sixth and seventh. He dropped a shot on the ninth, but was still in sole possession of the lead.
However, the match was cancelled due to heavy rain and he had to pass on his chance to win.
Another player who was disappointed with the cancelled fourth round was Im Jin-hee.
She was in contention for the title with Lee Ye-won, who was second in points. By the time she reached the 11th hole, she was three strokes back with four birdies and one bogey.
With the cancellation of the fourth round, Lim was tied for 11th place after three rounds and was not eligible for the grand prize, which is only awarded to the top 10 finishers.
The gap between her and Lee Ye-won, who finished second on the Order of Merit, widened and her plans for an upset at the final event of the season, the SK Shielders-SK Telecom Championship, were dashed.
“I was in the clubhouse waiting for play to resume when they announced the cancellation of the fourth round,” said Sung, who was lucky enough to win the event, “I couldn’t say anything because my teammates were playing well, so I had to be cautious.” She apologised to the other players.
Meanwhile, this is the fourth time this season that the S-Oil Championship has been shortened due to bad weather. 먹튀검증
