It is Ji Eun-hee’s second consecutive challenge for the ‘eldest sister’.
Ji Eun-hee won the Bank of Hope Match Play (total prize money of $1.5 million) on the LPGA Tour, which kicks off on the 24th (local time) for five days at Shadow Creek Golf Course (par 72, 6804 yards) in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Aim for Like the World Cup in soccer, a total of 64 players are divided into 16 groups, and the first place in each group advances to the round of 16, and then the winner is decided in a one-on-one match.

Ji Eun-hee is a veteran who made her LPGA Tour debut in 2007 and has won six career victories, including her first major.

It was a thrilling victory achieved in three years and four months after the Diamond Resort Tournament of Champions in January 2019.
Ji Eun-hee passed the group stage with 2 wins and 1 draw, then beat Choi Hye-jin in the round of 16, Madeleine Sakstrom (Sweden) in the quarter-final, Andrea Lee (USA) in the semi-final, and Ayaka Furue (Japan) in the final. Ji Eun-hee appeared in eight competitions this season and advanced to the finals four times. Her best result was a tie for 11th at the HSBC Women’s World Championship in March. At her most recent competition, the Cognitive Founders Cup two weeks ago, it’s a ‘cut off’. Ji Eun-hee is determined to achieve a reversal of the atmosphere in the ‘Promised Land’.
World No. 4 Lilia Boo (USA) is likely to win. She is in her high spirits, picking up two victories last month, including winning the Chevron Championship in a major tournament. She is first in money ($1,113,878) and Player of the Year (94 points), second in CME Globe Race Points (1347), and fourth in batting average (69.33).
