It is the beginning of the 2024 season, but Korean female golf players who have not yet won the championship are heading to China this week.

The Blue Bay LPGA, held for four days starting on the 7th at Zen Lake Blue Bay Golf Course (par 72, 6,675 yards) in China with a total prize money of $2.2 million (approximately 2.93 billion won), is being held due to the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) pandemic. It is a competition that has been hit directly by .

The competition was held from 2014 to 2018, but due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the competition was held again this year, four years later.

There were four tournaments held on the LPGA tour this year, but Korean players did not win.Since Korean women’s golf has outstanding skills, news of a victory can be announced at any time, but this year is the year when the Paris Olympics are held, so golf fans are nervous.

In order for Korea to have as many as four players participate in the Olympics, four players must be ranked in the top 15 in the World Golf Rankings as of June 24.

At the beginning of this year, there were four people in the top 15, but in the world rankings as of the 4th of this month, only two remained.

Jin-young Ko and Hyo-joo Kim maintained their positions in 9th place, but Hee-young Yang was pushed to 16th place and Ji-ae Shin was pushed to 18th place.

With the current world ranking, only two players can participate in the Olympics, so Korean athletes must raise their world rankings to the top 15 before the Olympics.

Jin-young Ko, Hyo-joo Kim, and Hee-young Yang are not participating in this week’s Blue Bay LPGA, but World No. 33 Hye-jin Choi and No. 39 Kim Se-young are on the roster.Seyoung Kim is also the winner of this competition in 2015.

World No. 1 Lilia Bou (USA) and No. 3 Celine Boutier (France) will also participate and compete with Korean players for the championship.

Lydia Go (New Zealand), who will be inducted into the LPGA Tour Hall of Fame with just one more win, also has her sights set on winning again after taking a month-long break and following her participation in the HSBC Women’s World Championship last week. 토토사이트
