‘3 players with 9 under par including Yang Hee-young’ LPGA course is ‘hot field’

On the moving day of the LPGA Tour Drive-On Championship (total prize money of 1.75 million dollars), three players, including Yang Hee-young (33), recorded a whopping 9 under par.

On the 26th (Korean time), in the third round of the tournament held at the Superstition Mountain Golf & Country Club (par 72, 6563 yards) in Arizona, USA, Yang Hee-young tied 10 birdies and 1 bogey to record 63 strokes and tied for 10 at 8:30. He rose to the top (13 under par, 203 strokes).

Yang Hee-young, who made a birdie from the 2nd hole, reduced 5 strokes in the first half to the 4th, 6th, 7th, and 9th holes. In the second half, he recorded a bogey on the 10th hole, but after catching a birdie on the 12th hole, he again birdied three consecutive holes on the 14th hole and also caught a birdie on the last hole.

In addition, Arya Jutanugarn (Thailand) caught 9 birdies without a bogey, reducing one stroke from the previous day’s 8 under par, and rose to a tie for 5th place (14 under par). Rookie Celine Borge (Norway), who advanced through the Epson Tour in the second part, tied for 5th place by hitting 9 under par with 8 birdies and 1 bogey, including an eagle on the last hole. 안전놀이터

This year’s rookie Yoo Hae-ran (23) also tied for the lead (15 under par) by hitting an 8-under-par 64, including an eagle on the last hole. There are also four players who hit 7 under par.

On this day, there was no wind and the competition continued on a hot day, so the distance of the players approached 270 yards. The average score on the first day was 70.503, and the second round was 70.6.

If you say the moving day course was difficult, it is absolutely not. If you look at the hole pin position that day, it is stuck on the edge of the green. The 1st hole has the pin 5 yards from the left edge, and the 2nd and 7th holes are 4 yards from the right edge. While the 1st hole is 5 yards from the back, the 4th hole is pinned to the front end, 6 yards from the front and right.

The reason why the players play such a good game is that there was no wind at all in the morning. Even in the afternoon, there is no strong wind, so the players’ competition for under par sparks.
