What is the reason why Seong Yu-jin (23, Hanwha Q Cells), who won her안전놀이터 first win of the season at Doosan Match Placer, became so confident?

On the 17th, in the third round of the ‘DB Group 37th Korea Women’s Open Golf Championship’ held at Rainbow Hills CC located in Eumseong, Chungcheongbuk-do, Seong Yu-jin recorded 2 under par and 70 strokes.

Seong Yu-jin, who is recording an interim total of 1 over par 217, is tied for 40th, up 11 spots from the previous day, and she is challenging to enter the top ranks in the final round.

“The pain in the fingers of her left hand is improving a lot,” Seong Yu-jin said in her Mixt Zone interview after completing her third round. She breathed a sigh of relief, saying, “It’s gotten to a level that doesn’t interfere with her playing the game.”

On this day, Seong Yu-jin seemed to rise in the rankings by catching four birdies in the early stages, but in the second half, she recorded consecutive bogeys on the 14th and 15th holes. However, she said, “I don’t think it’s regrettable. It was a mistake she could have made, so she doesn’t really care,” she said flatly.

Sung Yu-jin said her win at Doosan Match Play last month definitely helped her gain confidence.

He said, “I tried to play with confidence even before the fact. I think it’s good that she shines more like that after winning,” she smiled.

Above all, the most different part of this season is that the average number of strokes, fairway landing rate, and green hit rate have increased compared to last year. Regarding this part, Seong Yu-jin said, “It is still early in the season, and it may be that the number has gone up because of good grades. I think I will return to the average after about 30 competitions,” he said with a smile. There, I realized that I could play more freely,” he continued.

Seong Yu-jin is making progress in this tournament where the national title is at stake, placing 20th in 2020, 13th in 2021, and 11th last year.

In this tournament, she is tied for 40th with a 1-over par of 217, but has a good chance of rising in the rankings. This is because, except for the top ranks, the number of players is tightly packed.

Seong Yu-jin said, “I plan to play hard. The difference in number of strokes with the top players is not large, so if you aim for a birdie, you will be able to catch up.”
