Three Korean players, including Sung Yoo-jin and Hong Jung-min, qualify for the Q-Series, the final gateway to the LPGA Tour
Sung Yoo-jin Sung, 24, and Jung Min Hong, 22, have advanced to the LPGA Tour Qualifying event in the United States.
Sung finished in a tie for fourth place with a 10-under-par 278 in the second qualifying round of the LPGA Tour Qualifying event, which concluded on Oct. 21 at the par-72 Venice Platte Golf and Country Club in Venice, Fla.
Sung, ranked 78th in the world, entered the second round of the Q-School, which precedes the qualifying tournament, just three spots lower in the world rankings. The LPGA only allows players ranked in the top 75 in the world to qualify for the Q-Series. Last year, Hae-ran Ha went straight to the Q-Series and won her first LPGA Tour card as a senior.스포츠토토
Sung Yoo-jin Sung, in particular, earned a top-10 finish on the first day of the tournament and maintained her position in the top 10 with a solid performance to earn a ticket to the qualifying event.
Along with Sung, Hong Jung-min, 22, who plays on the Korean Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) Tour, also earned a spot in the qualifying tournament. Hong finished tied for eighth place with a four-day score of 7-under par 281. The top 40 finishers after four days of play in the second qualifying round of the 188-player field will advance to the Q-Series.
In addition, three South Koreans qualified for the main event in the second round of the Q-Series, including Myung Shin, who made her debut on the Epson Tour, the LPGA Tour’s second tier, this year and is ranked 97th in the world. The qualifying tournament will be held from Nov. 30 to Dec. 5 at Magnolia Grove Golf Course in Mobile, Alabama, USA.
