After winning the SK Networks/Seokyung Ladies Classic in 2018, Park Gyeol, who had been silent, took the lead for the first time in a long time and laid the foundation for the victory.
Park Gyeol hit a 2 under par 70 in the second round of the Chris F&C KLPGA Championship (total prize money of 1.3 billion won), the first major tournament of the season on the KLPGA Tour, held on the 28th at the Lakewood Country Club Mountain Road and Forest Course (par 72) in Yangju, Gyeonggi-do.
Park Gyeol, who tied for the lead by hitting 5 under par the previous day, took the lead with an interim total of 7 under par, 137 strokes.
Park Gyeol said, “It feels good to be in the lead for the first time in a while. Last year, I had a lot of trouble with bad iron shots, but today I can send my iron shots in the direction I want and stick well to the pin.” I was nervous, but I feel comfortable because it’s still the second round.”
Park Gyeol, who missed the cut at the Lotte Rent-A-Car Women’s Open in the first tournament this year, tied for 42nd at the Mediheal and Hankook Ilbo Championships, and finished tied for 14th at the Nexen and Saint Nine Masters.
Lee Da-yeon, who won two of her six career victories in major tournaments, and Han Jin-seon, who was on the rise after winning her first career victory at the High1 Resort Women’s Open last year, tied for second place by a stroke (6 under par, 138 strokes).
Lee Da-yeon pulled out 1 eagle and 4 birdies that day and blocked 2 bogeys to reduce 4 strokes, while Han Jin-sun hit 1 under par 71 strokes.토스카지노

Lee So-young, who has 6 wins in total, and Bang Sin-sil, a former national team member, are also poised to compete for the championship in the joint 5th place group.
Park Hyun-kyung, who won two consecutive KLPGA Championships in 2020 and 2021, also hit a 3-under-par 69 and tied for 9th place by 3 strokes (4-under-par 140 strokes).
Park Min-ji, who was sluggish with a 2-over par the previous day, reduced 3 strokes to jump to 24th place (1 under par, 143 strokes).
