When asked about the reason for participating in the KLPGA Tour, Sayaka Kitsuya said, “I had an acquaintance in Korea and came over to Korea last winter to play golf. The person who played the round with me suggested that I try the KLPGA Tour. I am also in Korea. Because I grew up watching the players win in Japan and the U.S., I was interested in the Korean tour and wanted to play in it. So, while learning about the KLPGA Tour, it was stipulated that foreigners could join through the same process as Korean players. Knowing that this had changed, I took on the challenge.”

In 2022, in order to lower the barriers for foreign players to enter the domestic tour, KLPGA opened the ‘Associate Member Tournament’ and ‘Jump Tour’, which only Korean nationals could participate in, and foreigners’ KLPGA tour rush continues.

Through the changed rules, Lee Shuing is the first foreigner to enter the regular tour through the same process as domestic players who go through the jump tour and dream tour. Li Shuing, who participated in the “Lotte Rent-A-Car Women’s Open”, the opening match of the 2023 KLPGA Tour held last week, showed her potential by tying for 16th, catching the attention of golf fans.

Sayaka Kitsuya, who took the first step to join the KLPGA with this victory, said, “Actually, I was trying to decide whether to run the jump tour and see a pro test in Japan or continue the challenge in Korea. But, unexpectedly, I won the first round. “I will do my best to achieve good results in the remaining three games and win the KLPGA International member (I-tour) qualification,” he said with strength.

Han Ji-min B and Bae Seo-yeon finished the game with a final total of 2 under par 142 strokes and tied for second place, and Lee Dong-eun and Kim Ga-hyun D, ​​who served as national representatives in 2022, recorded a final total of 1 under par 143 strokes and placed in a tie for 4th place.
