Seung Hyun Lee will be hoping for more of the same at the MY Championship, which starts on Friday in Paju. Lee missed the cut at the U.S. Women’s Open Championship, but that will be quickly forgotten at the second edition of this KLPGA tournament.
Lee also won the Seokyung Ladies Classic last season, but has yet to build on her two victories, over the first half of this year. Two 4th place finishes are her best results so far.
The Korean summer heat will undoubtedly be a factor in Paju, but Lee had no problem dealing with it last year, so it shouldn’t be a major issue for her.
Shinae Ahn will return to KLPGA action for the first time since missing the cut at the Korea Women’s Open a month ago. Ahn, whose sponsors are also sponsors this tournament, has been in good form recently on the JLPGA Tour, with three top 20 finishes, but her best finish in Korea is T-29th, which came at the E1 Charity Open back in May.
After a very satisfying T-15th finish at the U.S. Women’s Open Championship, Jin Young Ko will also return to domestic action for the first time since her withdrawal from the Korea Women’s Open, last month. It will be interesting to see how Ko performs after an indifferent year so far.
Coming off her T-5th finish in America, Jeong Eun Lee will be oozing with confidence and with one win under her belt already this year, she will a strong contender once again.
With last week’s win on the JLPGA Tour, Hae Rym Kim has now won three times this season. It still remains unclear whether Kim will take up full status in Japan, but for now, she will be looking for win number four in 2017.
