Bang Shin-sil, who has emerged as a blue chip on the KLPGA tour, won two consecutive victories at the Doosan Match Play Championship, raising his chances of advancing to the round of 16.
Bang Sin-sil defeated Lee Chae-eun 2 by a two-hole car in the second round of the group stage that continued at Ladena Golf Club (par 72) in Chuncheon, Gangwon-do on the 18th. Bang Sin-sil, who defeated defending champion Hong Jung-min the previous day by a one-hole lead, earned two points with two consecutive victories and rose to first place in Group 8. Bang Shin-sil is aiming for three consecutive wins against Seo Yeon-jung in the third match of the group stage on the 19th.
Bang Shin-sil, who passed through the national team, has emerged as a ‘blue chip’ that leads the box office of the KLPGA tour in three games despite conditional seeding. Bang Shin-sil, who left a strong impression by competing for the KLPGA Championship last month and the NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship last week, is mesmerizing golf fans by striking a 300-yard tee shot, which seemed impossible for a female player. Bang Sin-sil is receiving even greater support from fans as she collapsed due to an unexpected mistake on the threshold of winning the championship.
Last year’s winner, Hong Jeong-min, who lost to Bang Sin-sil the previous day, won her first victory by defeating Seo Yeon-jeong by 5 holes. As for Hong Jung-min, after winning the last game of the group stage, we have to watch Bang Shin-sil’s match results. If both players score the same points, overtime will be played to advance to the round of 16.
Bang Sin-sil, who started the game on the 10th hole, took a lead by 1 hole with a birdie on the 16th hole (par 3), and then took a 2-hole lead with the opponent’s bogey on the first hole of the second half (par 4). After Bang Shin-sil tee shot with the 3-wood at the 4th hole, a par 4 hole 396 yards away, her second shot with a 9-iron 130m away from the rough was sucked into the hole and led to an eagle. Bang Sin-sil, who escaped by car in the 3rd hole, gave up the 7th hole (par 3), but there was no obstacle to victory.
Bang Sin-sil is benefiting from her trademark slugging power in this tournament. The green at the Ladena Golf Club, the site of the competition, is hard and fast, so you have to attack with a short iron to set the ball. Players with short distances often roll out the ball even if they drop it on the green. If you attack the green with a utility or hybrid club, you have no choice but to struggle. In the case of Lee Chae-eun 2, who lost that day, the driver shot distance was more than 30 yards away, so she had to play a difficult game.
After the victory, Bang Shin-sil said, “It’s my first match play match, but I feel a little more comfortable because I only have to pay attention to the opponent,” and “I can play aggressively, so I can use my strengths.” I will focus on my play like today. If I play aggressively, I think there will be good results.”
Park Min-ji, who lost to lower-seeded Lee Joo-mi the day before, earned one point by defeating powerhouse Kim Ji-young 2 6-5. Park Min-ji, who recorded 1 win and 1 loss, must defeat Jeon Ye-seong, who is recording 1 win and 1 draw in her last match of the group stage, to advance to the round of 16. After the match, Park Min-ji said, “Unlike the previous day, today I got a lot of shots that fit the course strategy and distance calculation I thought of.” I will try to hit my shots well and put all my putts.”
Lim Jin-hee,메이저사이트 who won the NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship last week, defeated Jeong Seul-gi 2&1 and won two consecutive victories. Han Jin-seon, Seong Yu-jin, Lee Ye-won, Park Ji-young, Na Hee-won, Ahn Song-i, Madasom, Park Hyun-kyung, Noh Seung-hee, and Ha Min-song also won two consecutive victories to rise to the top spot in the group. In the four-player group stage, only the first place in each group advances to the round of 16.
