Park Min-ji, not participating in the LPGA national competition

Korea Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour ‘Jijon’ Park Min-ji decided not to participate even though she was qualified to participate in the US Women’s Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour national competition.

The LPGA Tour announced on the 4th (Korean time) the list of players who qualified for the eight participating countries in the national competition to be held at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco on the 4th of next month. Four players from each country can participate in this tournament, and the players are decided in order of world ranking on the day, one month before the start of the tournament.

Based on the rankings on this day, four Korean players who qualified for the national competition are Jinyoung Ko (3rd), Hyoju Kim (9th), Inji Jeon (11th) and Minji Park (21st). However, Park Min-ji decided that she could not travel to and from the United States during the domestic tournament, so she informed the LPGA Tour that she would give up the opportunity to the next ranked player. An official from Park Min-ji explained, “All other players belong to the LPGA, but Park Min-ji is playing on the domestic stage, so it is not easy to keep up with the schedule.” “I will focus on the KLPGA tour for now.” 안전놀이터

With Park Min-ji giving up the competition, the opportunity seems to go to the next ranked Choi Hye-jin (25th). The LPGA will confirm the final list after confirming the intentions of the players who have qualified for the competition by the 7th. As Choi Hye-jin has shown her will to participate in this tournament, her participation is certain.
