A full strength JLPGA field, along with some of the world’s best will battle it out for the Japan Women’s Open Championship, just outside Tokyo. Headlining will be 2015 champion In Gee Chun.
Order of Merit leader Ha Neul Kim returns to action after a two week break. Kim, who has won four times in Japan this season, has been the standout player of 2017. A victory this week would cement her position as the JLPGA number one.
Korea’s brightest young prospect Hye Jin Choi will once again try to win a National Open, after coming so close at the U.S. Women’s Open earlier this year. Choi has won twice on the KLPGA Tour, both times as an amateur. Now a full time professional since turning 18, Choi is just another example of the strength in depth that Korea possesses when it comes to ladies golf.
Lets not forget Bo Mee too…she has dominated the JLPGA Tour over the past few years. She is certainly not done yet…
First up, I suppose I better say hello and thank you for visiting my website, whoever you are. I teach, I write, I caddy, I write, I travel, I write. Mostly, about golf if that interests you. Usually interviews for various publications and blog about my caddy adventures.
