‘Queen of the Wind’ Lee So-mi took the lead in the second round of the KLPGA Tour Nexen Saint Nine Masters (total prize money of 800 million won).
In the second round held on the 22nd at the Gimhae Gaya Country Club in Gyeongsangnam-do, Somi Lee shot a 4 under par 68 to take the lead with an intermediate total of 7 under par 137.
Lee So-mi, who beat last season’s grand prize winner Kim Su-ji by one stroke, seized a chance to win six in five months after winning the S-Oil Championship in November last year.
At Gaya Country Club, where the tournament was held, strong winds of up to 11 meters per second continued to blow from the day before until today.먹튀검증
When the players took an address stance, their collars slapped their cheeks and the flagpoles vibrated violently.
Lee So-mi broke through the strong wind and pulled out 7 birdies. Lee So-mi, who recorded 5 wins in total, won 3 wins at a golf course in Jeju Island, where the wind is strong.
Although not Jeju, she showed a strong wind side by winning once in Yeongam, Jeollanam-do, where the sea breeze blows as strongly as Jeju.
Lee So-mi said, “It’s important to play my shots and putts even in the wind. You have to know how to ride the wind, and you have to know how to wait and hit if it blows too hard.”
Lee So-mi suffered the humiliation of being eliminated from the cut in both previous competitions.
Before the final round, Lee So-mi said, “I’m grateful for passing the cut rather than greedy for winning, and I won’t overdo it.”
Kim Su-ji, who pulled out 5 birdies that day and hit 4 under par, said, “I made good judgments from moment to moment.”
Kim Min-byeol, who leads the Rookie of the Year race, endured well with 3 birdies and 3 bogeys, and faced the final round in 3rd place (4 under par 140 strokes), 3 strokes behind Lee So-mi.
Choi Eun-woo and Jo Ah-yeon tied for 4th place (3 under par, 141 strokes).
On the first day, Jung Yeon-ju, who took the lead by hitting a 5-under-par 65, lost 5 strokes and was pushed out of the championship race.
