Sung Hyun Park’s return to the KLPGA Tour was well and truly overshadowed by the outstanding performance produced by Jeong Eun Lee.
Lee opened up with a pretty routine round
Lee created history in round two, as she ripped the course to shreds. Ten birdies and an eagle elevated Lee to the top of the leaderboard, a position she was never going to relinquish.
Heading into the final day, Lee “only” held a three shot lead over Ji Hyun Kim. Kim, also with three victories this season, fired a stunning 65 on Saturday, which was overlooked by many, due to her playing partners incredible round.
Kim was unable to mount a challenge on Sunday and slipped back into T-3rd, alongside the ‘other’ Ji Hyun Kim and Shi Hyun Ahn. Seon Woo Bae grabbed the runner up spot with a final round 64.
Sung Hyun Park finished off the week in T-34th, which was somewhat irrelevant, as she has much bigger events ahead of her in the coming weeks.
This victory for Jeong Eun Lee will go down in the KLPGA history books as one of the most impressive ever. Player of the Year? Quite possibly, unless Ji Hyun Kim or Jin Young Ko grab a couple of more victories between now and the end of the season.
