The Korean women’s national team’s golden challenge journey is not going smoothly.
The women’s national team, made up of three amateur high school students, only lost 4 strokes in the second round of the women’s team event at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held at the West Lake International Golf Course (par 72) in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China on the 29th, falling to 5th place (11 under par). . The women’s team, which started in 4th place by reducing 7 strokes in the first round, dropped in ranking with Minsol Kim reducing 4 strokes, Jiyu Lim recording even par, and Hyeonjo Yoo recording 1 over par. In the women’s team competition, the scores of the top two players from each country are combined.
On this day, China recorded a whopping 11 under par, 스포츠토토킹 recording a total of 21 under par, and took the sole lead. Yin Luoning, ranked second in the world and emerging as a golf star, contributed greatly to the national team by reducing 6 strokes. Yin Luoning’s individual performance was 11 under par, tied for second place.
Thailand ranked second in the team event with 20 under par, and India came in third place with 16 under par, putting them within medal range.
Until the second round, the gap with leader China was a whopping 10 strokes. With two days remaining until the competition, it cannot be said that there are that many in the team competition, but it is not a small gap either. However, the possibility of a bronze medal remains, with a 5 stroke gap from 3rd place India.
The only consolation is that Kim Min-sol ranked 7th (7 under par) in the individual competition. She is 5 strokes behind Thailand’s Arpicaya Uball, who has risen to the sole lead. Kim Min-sol, ranked 4th in the world amateur rankings, is 178 cm tall and has an average drive shot distance of 270 yards. She was runner-up at the Women’s Amateur Asia Pacific Championship last March.
