Ryu So-yeon and Kim Su-ji who won the fight against the cutoff … Park Min-ji and Kim Min-byeol missed the cut for the first time this year￼
- on May 27, 2023
At the end of the tournament, the expected number of strokes based on the cutoff was a total of 1 over par for the 2nd round.
Ryu So-yeon, an “LPGA veteran,” who had been playing on the domestic stage for a long time, was in a terrible shot hunting situation. On the first day of the tournament, Ryu So-yeon, who tied for 4th place at 3-under par, made 6 bogeys until the 14th hole and went down to 3-over par in total. He was in a crisis where he could not escape the cut if he could not reduce 2 strokes in the remaining 4 holes. Ryu So-yeon, who also recorded a par on the 15th hole, now needed two birdies on the remaining three holes. Fortunately, two of the remaining three holes were par 5 holes. Finally, the first birdie of the day came out on the par 5 16th hole. I did not miss the 3m birdie opportunity. Ryu So-yeon, who safely passed the difficult par-4 17th hole, also made a birdie on the par-5 18th hole with her third shot to the pin 1m, and dramatically won the fight against the cut-off.
The second round of the E1 Charity Open was held on the 27th at Seongmunan CC (par 72) in Wonju-si, Gangwon-do. Ryu So-yeon, who shot a 4-over par 76 with 2 birdies and 6 bogeys, tied for 54th with a total of 1-over par 145 to advance to the final 3 rounds.
Kim Soo-ji, who had a round with Ryu So-yeon, had to fight a close fight with the cutoff. Suji Kim, who started bogeying the 1st hole, made a birdie on the 3rd hole, but bogeyed the 6th hole and was pushed to 1 over par. He could lose his concentration due to the steady rain, so he could not cross the cutoff. In addition, Kim Su-ji has continued to pass the cut in 32 competitions after missing the cut in the season opener last year. He was, of course, making the cut in the most tournaments of any current KLPGA player. Kim Su-ji did not even catch a birdie after the 7th hole, but she was able to avoid the cutoff by recording a 1-over-par 145 after par for 12 consecutive holes while overcoming the bogey crisis. It is a record of 33 consecutive cuts.
Unlike Ryu So-yeon or Kim Su-ji, there is also a top ranker who tasted the pain of the cut-off for the first time in this tournament. Min-ji Park, who has won 6 wins each for the past 2 years in a row, and Min-ji Kim, who is the top player in the rookie rankings this year, is Min-byul Kim.
Park Min-ji, who started in the lower ranks with a 75 on the first day, lost one stroke in the second round and failed to pass the cut with a total of 4-over-par 148 (tied for 89th). It was his first cutoff in only his seventh appearance of the year.
Rookie Kim Min-byeol, who had never had a cutoff in 8 tournaments, could not reduce the number of strokes on the day and could not make up for the sluggishness on the first day after hitting 76 and failed to cross the cutoff line with a total of 4 over par.안전놀이터
Rookie long hitter Bang Shin-sil maintained a joint lead spot on the first day, and this year alone, she is already challenging for the first win in her third championship group. Bang Shin-sil, who cut 3 strokes that day, recorded a total of 7 under par, 137 strokes, and tied for the lead with Kim Hee-ji and Park Ji-young.
