Kim A-lim (28), who is getting stronger in major tournaments, challenges her second consecutive victory in major tournaments on the Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour.
Kim A-lim will participate in the first major tournament of the KLPGA Tour season held at Lakewood Country Club (par 72) in Yangju-si, Gyeonggi-do for four days from the 27th. She comes out as the defending champion of the tournament.
He participated in the KLPGA Championship last year and won the come-from-behind victory by three strokes while reducing the number of strokes while competitors such as Kim Hyo-joo (28) faltered in the final round.
Kim A-rim, who entered the LPGA tour by winning the 2020 US Women’s Open as a surprise, reached the top on the domestic tour after a long time. He was delighted that he had seen the fruits of his tireless efforts, such as taking many lessons in the United States and watching many play videos of friends of the same age, such as Kim Hyo-joo and Ko Jin-young, who entered the LPGA tour first.
The momentum is good this time too. At the Chevron Championship (total prize money of $5.1 million), the first major tournament of the LPGA Tour season that ended on the 24th (Korean time), she recorded a final total of 8 under par 280 strokes and tied for 4th place.
Kim A-rim said, “I’m really sorry about the last day. I feel like I didn’t do everything I prepared, so I have regrets. I think it will be a good flow for me, and I will try to grow more with this opportunity.”
From winning the 2020 US Women’s Open and the 2022 KLPGA Championship to this year’s Chevron Championship, Kim A-lim is active in each major tournament with her long hit, an advantage. He explained, “I think the major course fits a little better due to its nature. It fits well with the major course in that it allows for a variety of shots.”
He continued, “I felt a lot through this competition that the practice I am currently doing is going well. As much as I felt in this competition, I will try to push a little more on the path I am going now.”
As Alim Kim came to the domestic competition, there was one more thing to see. It is a confrontation between Kim A-lim and rookie long hitters. On the LPGA Tour, Kim A-lim, who belongs to the long hitter, will also be watching the long-hit competition with super rookies such as Hwang Yoo-min (20), who is second in driving distance, and Kim Min-byeol (19), who is 9th. 토토사이트
