Will attempt to defend her three titles in one season, 41 years after the late Koo Ok-hee in 1982, at the Heineken
Championship, the final major of the Korean Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) Tour season. Park is

Park Min-ji, 25, will attempt to break a waiting list at the final major of the Korean Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour season.
Park will defend her title at the Hite Jinro Championship at Blue Heron Golf Club (Par 72) in Yeoju, Gyeonggi
Province, starting on May 5. Park, who defeated Jung Yun-ji (23) in a double-extended playoff in the final round
last year, will become the first player since 1982 to defend three titles in one season in 41 years if she wins the
event. Only the late Koo Ok-hee defended three titles in one season twice (1981, 1982) in KLPGA Tour history.
Park, who defended her title at the BC Card and Celltrion this season, will tie Koo’s record if she finishes on top.
“I definitely want to defend my title at the last major of the season,” said Park, “and green hit rate will be an
important factor because the greens are getting harder as the temperature drops. I will focus on my tee shots to
improve my fairway percentage, 카지노사이트랭크 which is crucial for hitting greens,” said Park.

Is also looking to turn things around. Until last year, Park was known as the “big thing,” winning six titles for the
second straight year and dominating the money list, but this season she has two wins, fourth place on the money
list and seventh place on the money list (623.21 million won). She was also the first to post two wins this season,
but hasn’t added a trophy since July. In the meantime, Park Ji-young (27) has three wins, while Lee Ye-won (19),
who has two wins, took the grand prize and first place in prize money (KRW 1,044.54 million). With three wins,
Park is in a “two-way tie” with Lee for the grand prize and second place (KRW 947.1 million).
If Park wins, she will tie for first place on the all-time wins list with her first major title of the season. With the
added prize money of KRW 216 million, she will also be able to claim the top spot on the money list, depending
on the results of the remaining five events. Here’s why Park is so determined to win this tournament.
Park will be joined in the first round by “mom golfer” Park Joo-young, 33, who won her first title in 14 years at the Daebo Howdy Open last week. 고스톱
