Gangwon golfers Kim Hyo-joo (from Wonju) and Lim Hee-jeong (from Taebaek), as well as world top players and Korean national players, will participate in the Ladies European Tour (LET) armed with huge oil money.
LET will hold the Aramco Saudi Ladies International (total prize money of $5 million) at the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club (par 72, 6295 yards) in King Abdullah Economic City, Saudi Arabia for four days starting on the 16th (Korean time). 바카라
Sponsored by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund (PIF), this year’s total prize money is 5 million dollars (approximately 6.4 billion won), five times higher than last year’s (1 million dollars). The winner receives $750,000. This is a scale that greatly exceeds the total prize money of 1.5 million to 2 million dollars in general competitions of the LPGA, excluding major tournaments. As a result, a large number of world-class players were mobilized. Initially, 50 of the 120 players in the entry consisted of players within the top 300 in the women’s golf world rankings. The remaining 60 are from LET and the remaining 10 are invited players. Korean players on the LPGA Tour include Kim Hyo-joo (9th), Jeon In-ji (8th in the world), Kim A-lim (48th), Yoo Hae-ran (52nd), Ji Eun-hee (54th), and Shin Ji-eun (98th). Members of the Korea Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour include Lim Hee-jeong (57th), Lee Jeong-eun (38th), Lee So-mi (43rd), Hong Jung-min (76th), Jung Yun-ji (77th), Lim Jin-hee (93rd), Song Ga-eun ( 107th place), Cho Ah-yeon (111th place), Seong Yu-jin (119th place), Ha Min-song (134th place), and Hwang Jung-mi (138th place) will sortie.
Kim Hyo-joo, who has been showing steady results throughout the season, including one win last year, is going to the first tournament of the new season. Kim Hyo-joo missed the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions (total prize money of 1.5 million dollars), the opening match of this season of the LPGA Tour, which opened last month, even though she was eligible. Ahead of the ‘Honda LPGA Thailand’ to be held on the 23rd, it is expected to raise the senses through this tournament.
Lim Hee-jung goes to the mid-season inspection of the battery training that she sweated during the off-season. While the KLPGA Tour domestic opening match was held in April, Lim Hee-jung ranked 6th and 51st respectively in the two competitions of the 2023 season held in December last year.
