Jo Ah-yeon participated in six competitions this season and recorded one top-10. At the KLPGA Championship held last week, she tied for 22nd.
Park Ji-young (27, Korea Real Estate Trust), who currently tops the prize money, is also a strong candidate for the championship.

He said, “I think I’ve been playing well so far. Based on my good performance, I’m ahead of the Rookie of the Year competition, but I’m trying to focus on my play rather than dwelling on the title.”
“It would be great if we even won the championship, but I felt that if the greed for winning increased, it would not help the game,” he said. same,” he added.

Bang Shin-sil, who participates in the KLPGA regular tour for two consecutive weeks, plans to secure a full seed by winning and continue a stable tour life.
Meanwhile, Park Min-ji (25, NH Investment & Securities), the ‘strongest in Korea’, who has been active as the prize money and multi-winner for two consecutive years, is taking a break this week.
Park Min-ji, who finished the KLPGA Championship last week, is preparing for the NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship next week while taking a break this week.

Park Min-ji also gave up participating in the ‘International Crown’, a national golf competition to be held this week, to prepare for this tournament. This is because of concerns that the schedule going back and forth between Korea and the United States could adversely affect preparations for next week’s tournament.
