On the morning of the 26th, the first round of the 11th E1 Charity Open (total prize money of 900 million won, winner’s prize of 162 million won) was held at Seongmunan CC (Par 72-6,662 yards) in Wonju, Gangwon-do.
Park Min-ji, who has 16 career wins on the KLPGA, Kim Soo-ji, who has four career wins on the 2022 Grand Prize, and Yoo So-yeon, who has 18 career wins on tours around the world, including 10 on the KLPGA, six on the LPGA, one on the LET (European) Tour, and one on the JLPGA Tour, played together in a group of 22 on the 10th tee.
The three players greeted each other and stretched lightly before teeing off. Park Min-ji and Kim Soo-ji hit their tee shots hard. The third player, Yoo So-yeon, took a light swing and hit her tee shot hard. However, Yoo’s shot went into the left rough. The distance was 244 yards. Yoo watched her shot for a while with a disappointed look on her face. Park Min-ji and Kim Soo-ji also stared at the ball.
As they left the tee box for the second shot, Park Min-ji and Kim Soo-ji took a step forward to invite Yoo So-yeon to pose for a photo with them, but Yoo So-yeon’s momentum carried her downhill and her steps quickened.
As the distance between them grew, Park Min-ji and Kim Soo-ji, who didn’t have time to say anything, looked at each other in embarrassment, smiled, and headed for the second shot.먹튀검증
