Yewon Lee’s tee shot.

Lee Ye-won took one step closer to revenge for her Doosan Match Play runner-up finish two years ago.

Ye-won Lee received a bye victory over Jeong-min Lee in the third round of the group stage of the Korea Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour 2024 Doosan Match Play (total prize money of 900 million won) held at Ladena Country Club (par 72) in Chuncheon, Gangwon-do on the 17th.

Lee Jung-min gave up the third game, saying he couldn’t play because his wrist was sore.

Accordingly, Yewon Lee confirmed her advancement to the round of 16 with three wins in the group stage.

Lee Ye-won reached the finals of this competition in 2022 when she was a rookie, but lost to Hong Jeong-min and finished as runner-up.

Lee Ye-won previously expressed her strong desire to win the Doosan Match Play, saying, “I like match play style games. I really want to wash away the regret of finishing second two years ago.” 파워볼사이트

Lee Ye-won, who reached the round of 16 with three consecutive wins, even enjoyed the advantage of being able to rest for a full day ahead of the round of 16.

Lee Ye-won, who had accumulated mental and physical fatigue after winning the final round of the NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship on the 12th despite a strong chase by Yoon Na, was not in very good condition as she suffered from a sore throat during this competition as well.

Lee Ye-won, who decided to rest without practice after returning from the hospital, said, “My throat hurts more than yesterday, but I think it will get better if I take medicine and rest.”

Although his condition was not good, he did not hide his motivation.

Lee Ye-won said, “Last year I didn’t make it to the round of 16, but I will try my best to get there,” and expressed her determination, “Starting tomorrow, if I lose, it’s over, so I will play more aggressively.”

Lee Jung-min, who became the youngest winner of this competition in 2010 and attempted to become the oldest winner this time, swallowed his disappointment as he was hampered by an injury.

Park Hyun-kyung, who is also looking to avenge her runner-up finish, also sat out the third round of the group stage thanks to her opponent Yoo Seo-yeon withdrawing due to a back injury, and advanced to the round of 16 with three wins in the group stage.

Yoo Seo-yeon complained of back pain during the match against Kang Ji-seon the previous day and withdrew midway.

Park Hyun-kyung was concentrating on putting practice on the practice green in the blazing sun while other players were playing.

Park Hyun-kyung, who lost to Seong Yu-jin in the final last year and finished second, said, “I am happy to have achieved my first goal of stepping on the grass of Ladena Golf Course this weekend. The round of 16 is the first gateway to the final, so I want to make a good start. I will do my best. “He expressed his determination to play in the round of 16.

Although it is her first time competing in this tournament, Yoon Ina, who is considered a strong candidate for the championship thanks to her long shots, also advanced to the round of 16 with three consecutive wins.

Yoon Ina, who defeated Kim Su-ji in the first match of the group stage, defeated Lim Hee-jung the day before and defeated Choi Min-kyung by 5 holes on this day.

Yoon Ina expressed her desire to win, saying, “Concentration is important in match play. I want to play like I have done so far without losing focus, shot by shot.” She added, “I have good physical strength, so it is not difficult. I want to play until the last day.” . 한국야동
