Li Shu-ying (China) tied for first place in the second round of the Korean Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour BC Card and Hankyung Ladies Cup (total prize money of 800 million won).
In the second round of the second day of the tournament held at Pocheon Hills Country Club (par 72, 6,630 yards) in Pocheon-si, Gyeonggi-do on the 24th, Leishuing hit 5 under par 67 with 1 hole-in-one, 7 birdies and 4 bogies.
Lee Shu-ing, who recorded a total of 10 under par 134 strokes in the second round, will start the final round on the 25th with Lee Ga-young tied for the lead.
Heo Da-bin, with 9 under par and 135 strokes, is in third place by one stroke.
Lee Shu-ing, a rookie this season, reduced 6 strokes in only 9 holes in the first half, including a hole-in-one with an 8-iron in the 135m 4th hole (par 3).
Li Xiuying, a Chinese national, is the first foreign player to enter the regular tour through the same process as the Korean players after the KLPGA fully opened the associate member selection event and the jump tour to lower the entry barrier for foreign players in the domestic tour.
Li Shuying, born to a Korean father and a Chinese mother, is from Shanghai, China메이저사이트. She has lived in Korea since she was 8 years old and is fluent in Korean.
In an interview after the game, Li Shuing said, “I hit the hole-in-one at 130m because it was downhill, but I couldn’t see the ball go in because it was covered by trees.” I will show you,” he said.
His best result this season was 8th at the Nexen/Saint Nine Masters in April. Last year, he won twice on the third-part tour, the Jump Tour, and once finished runner-up on the second-part tour, the Dream Tour.
The latest foreign player winning record on the KLPGA regular tour was Hanwha Financial Classic Haru Nomura (Japan) in September 2015.
Nomura was born to a Japanese father and a Korean mother, and her Korean name is Minkyung Moon.
Lee Ga-young, tied for first place with Li Shuing, is a player who won the first victory in his life at the Dongbu Construction Korea Land Trust Championship in October last year.
Lee Ga-young, who won her first victory in the 98th tournament of the regular tour at the time, has never ranked in the top 10 since finishing third at the Mediheal and Hankook Ilbo Championships in April this year.
Lee Ga-young said, “I was worried about my tee shot and had a bad direction, but it got better from last week.”
Park Min-ji, the winner of this event last year, recorded an 8-under par of 136, finishing the second round in a tie for fourth place with Lee Ye-won and Jeon Ye-seong.
Hong Ji-won, the Korean Women’s Open champion who ended last week, tied for 13th with a 5-under 139 strokes.
Lee Je-young, who was tied for first place with Heo Da-bin in the first round, lost 3 strokes and was pushed back to 4-under-par 140, tied for 17th place.
Bang Shin-sil, a ‘special rookie’, cut one stroke that day, but was eliminated from the cut with a 1-over par of 145 strokes and a tie for 65th place. He advanced to the third round even par.
