‘Founders Cup reverse win’ Ko Jin-young “I was a little more lucky than Lee Min-ji”

Jin-young Ko (28, Solaire), who succeeded in a dramatic come-from-behind victory at the LPGA Tour’s Cognizant Founders Cup (total prize money of $3 million), which ended on the 15th, was ‘lucky’. He lowered his stance.

In the final round of the tournament held at Upper Montclair Country Club (par 72, 6656 yards) in Clifton, New Jersey, USA on the 15th (Korean time), Ko Jin-young recorded 5 birdies without bogey and hit 5 under par 67.

Ko Jin-young, who recorded a final total of 13 under par 275 strokes, tied with Korean-Australian Lee Min-ji and led the game to overtime, showing her back and winning the championship cup.

With this, Ko Jin-young added a victory in about two months after the HSBC Women’s World Championship in March, achieving a total of 15 wins.

Jinyoung Ko won her first win in this event last year in 2019. The following year, the tournament was not held due to the aftermath of the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19), and in 2021, it climbed to the top again and achieved two consecutive victories, but won again in two years and saved good memories in the Pound Cup.

In an interview with the LPGA Tour after the match, Ko Jin-young said, “Actually, it’s not easy to win twice in one event, but I was lucky enough to win the third championship.” I am grateful to be able to give it to you,” he said.

“I think I was a little luckier than Lee Min-ji. All the players, including the two of us, did their best and the tournament ended successfully,” he said, taking care of his teammates.

Regarding the situation카지노사이트 in which he succeeded in a dramatic birdie on the 18th hole, where he was trailing Min-ji Lee by one stroke, Ko Jin-young said, “I thought that I could succeed as long as the speed was good because the feeling of putting was good today. I was confident,” he said.

The course of the Founders Cup has changed frequently recently, and it was also meaningful that Ko Jin-young overcame all other courses while winning the tournament three times.

Ko Jin-young said, “I think it means a lot to win three times in different courses.”

Finally, Ko Jin-young added, “My goal this year is to keep my swing, which was shaken a lot last year, solidly. I am still working hard. I will try to show a better image for the rest of the season.”
