Soo Yun Kang fell just shy of her fourth JLPGA title at the Meiji Cup earlier today. Kang had to settle for second, finishing just one shot behind Haruka Morita- who claimed her first professional victory.
41 year old Kang has already won this season at the Resorts Trust Ladies back in May. This result, which included three sub par rounds, proves that Kang can be a threat any week on Tour. She will be back in contention a few more times this year.
At the age of 41, and especially playing ladies golf in Asia, some may have begun to believe that Kang’s career is drawing to a close- nope.
Mi Jeong Jeon was the next best Korean finisher, five shots behind Kang, which still secured Jeon a T-7th finish.
Order of Merit leader Ha Neul Kim finished one shot worse off than Jeon, in T-12th. Is that going to please Sky? It should. Even her off weeks are producing decent results this season.
Ji Hee Lee finished alongside Kim, which should give the JLPGA veteran and multiple winner a much needed boost of confidence. Having won twice last year, Lee is yet to back that success up this season and would probably need to win at least once to make it a satisfactory season.
Jae Eun Chung also secured a T-12th finish, which was her best result of the 2017 season. Chung has been very much in the shadows of her fellow Koreans on the Japan Tour, but maybe this result will be a catalyst for her to build upon. Only time will tell…
