Jeon In-ji, AIG Women’s Open 3R tied for 2nd place… Leading Budae and 5 strokes

Jeon In-ji (28) lost the lead in the third round of the AIG Women’s Open (total prize money of $7.3 million), the last major tournament of the LPGA Tour season, causing a setback in her ‘Career Grand Slam’ challenge.

In the third round of the tournament held at Muirfield (par 71, 6,728 yards) in East Lodian, Scotland on the 7th (Korean time) on the 7th (Korean time), Jeon In-ji hit a 1-under-par 70 with 3 birdies and 2 bogeys.

Jeon In-ji, who was the sole lead until the second round, recorded a total of 9-under 204 for three days, falling down to tied for second place, 5 shots behind Ashley Buhui (South Africa, 14-under 199), who cut a whopping 7 shots that day.

In June of this year, Jeon In-ji, who won the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and won three major tournaments, was aiming to achieve a ‘career grand slam’ by winning this tournament as well.

There are currently five major women’s golf tournaments: Chevron Championship, US Women’s Open, KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, Evian Championship, and AIG Women’s Open.

Jeon In-ji won the US Open in 2015 and the Evian Championship in 2016.

In the second round, Jeon In-ji, who took the lead by hitting 66, the lowest batting average in her career at the AIG Women’s Open, made a pleasant start with birdies on the 2nd hole (par 4) and 5th hole (par 5).

However, after that, as the number of putts increased, he could hardly record a birdie, but rather recorded bogeys on the 9th hole (par 5) and 15th hole (par 4).

The number of putts from only 26 each in the first and second rounds increased to 33 on that day.

Fortunately, he caught the third birdie in the third round on the 17th hole (par 5) and laid the foundation for a comeback victory in the fourth round.

Jeon In-ji said, “I have a wish to do (a career grand slam), but rather than thinking about the future that hasn’t happened yet, I want to focus on what I want to do now, and then I want to meet that moment.” “I try to do the best I can in my position,” he said.

Park In-bee (34), the winner of this competition in 2015, maintained a tie for fourth place in the third round following the second round with a total of 7-under 206 for three days.

Park In-bee, who lost cuts in a row at the Evian Championship last month and the Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open last week, is aiming for lust with her top score in this tournament.

Park In-bee said, “It’s important to keep a calm mind at the AIG Women’s Open.

I don’t know what the weather will be like tomorrow, but I try not to give up and focus.”

After debuting on the LPGA in 2008, Bukhay, who has not yet won a championship, continued his birdie streak, showing his culmination of his putt sense, catching birdies four consecutive times from the 4th hole (par 3) to the 7th hole (par 3).

Shibuno Hinako (Japan) reduced five strokes only in the third round and placed in a tie with Jeon In-ji with a total of 9-under 204 for three days.
