Park Ji-young attempted a birdie putt with 5.5m left on the 18th hole of the fourth round of the “Medi Hill and Hankook Ilbo Championship (total prize money of 1 billion won, prize money of 180 million won)” held at Ferrum Club (par 72, 6,652 yards) in Yeoju, Gyeonggi Province on the 16th.
The putt ball seemed to be sucked into the hole cup. However, he crossed Park Hyun-kyung’s ball marker in front of the hole cup and stopped right in front of the hole cup. Park Ji-young, who putted a birdie, and the gallery were also exclaimed with regret.
Park Ji-young covered her mouth and looked disappointed. I looked at Park Hyun-kyung, who was wearing a ball marker, with resentment(?) eyes.
Park Hyun-kyung and Park Ji-young are usually close because they have the same main sponsor. The two players in the championship group talked while walking together to the first hole on the practice green. In particular, cute Park Hyun-kyung even showed a special service that shook Park Ji-young’s shoulder.
Park Ji-young recorded a par on the 18th hole, finishing tied for eighth with Jung Yoon-ji with a final total of 7-under 281. Park Hyun-kyung finished second with a total of 10-under 278. 스포츠토토탑
Meanwhile, Lee Ju-mi, who competed in her 148th tournament, won her first regular tour title by beating second place Park Hyun-kyung by two strokes with a final total of 12-under 276. He won 180 million won in prize money.
Lee Ju-mi said, “I never thought I would come back here after interviewing at the media center for the first time in the second round. It feels new to sit here again. I thank my parents for their hard work so far. I think I made a small reward. I can’t believe it yet, but it’s really good,” he said.
