Her success of last year is once again evident this week, as Bo Mee Lee bids to successfully defend her Meiji Cup title. The chances of this happening? More likely that it won’t, but that doesn’t mean it can’t…
Prior to winning this tournament last year, Lee had picked up two victories earlier in the season and went onto win five in total. In 2015 she won seven.
The 20 time JLPGA winner hasn’t won since November last year; her longest drought without a victory in two years. Can she rectify this soon? It’s always possible everytime she tees it up, her talent is undeniably there, but this year has seen Ha Neul Kim take over the reigns.
Kim has been the standout so far this season, notching up three wins, along with a string of top tens. One feels that Sky is not done yet and more victories are not too far away.
Three other Korean contenders this week are – Sun Ju Ahn, who won the season opener and currently has 23 JLPGA titles to her name; Mi Jeong Jeon who won the week after, has a record 25 victories and Soo Yun Kang, who won her third JLPGA title in May.
It won’t be easy again for Bo Mee, but winning never is and hopefully we see that victory smile again soon.
