KLPGA season wrap-up: Park Min-ji “I’ll be back next year with a rookie attitude”

Won twice this season and finished 12th on the money list. Eighth in points and ninth in scoring average.

That’s a pretty successful season on the Korean Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) Tour.

However, it’s a different story if it’s Park Min-ji.

Park won the money list for the second year in a row in 2021 and 2020 and had 12 wins in those two years.

With 18 career wins and nearly 5.7 billion won, he is close to becoming the all-time money winner.

After finishing the final round of the season-ending SK Shields-SK Telecom Championship (total prize money of 1 billion won) at the Laviebel Country Club Old Course (Par 72) in Chuncheon, Gangwon Province on Wednesday in a tie for 50th place (10-over par 226), Park said, “Golf doesn’t always go well for me. I want to give myself the 100 points that I didn’t get last year and the year before,” he said.

“I’ve been whipping myself, and I’ve been hurting myself. It was a meaningful season in that I got a signal to get back on my feet and work harder,” he added.

“Once I got to the top, I had a lot of other things to worry about besides golf,” she said. “It was hard to focus on golf, and there were points where I became lazy.”

“I used to be the one who stayed on the range the longest, but now I’m the one who leaves the range the earliest,” she reflected, and vowed to return with a rookie attitude next year.

Park, who is two wins shy of the KLPGA Tour’s most wins (20), said, “Next year, I want to add three more wins and set a new record,” and added, “I also want to win a tournament in the United States.”

“I’m not going to bet on the odds,” Park said, “I don’t want to go and be just another player. I will go when I am sure that I can be the best player there, and to do that, I need to increase my distance first.” 토토사이트
