Lee Ye-won, from ‘OK Scholarship Student’, records ‘Audi Buddy’ and lays the foundation for 3rd win

 “I was active as an OK scholarship student. So I really want to achieve good results this year.”

Ye-won Lee, who won twice on the Korean Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour this season, was a 5th-generation scholarship recipient of the OK Assignment Scholarship Foundation presented by OK Financial Group during her junior year. At the time, she received scholarships worth about 20 million won per year. 

At the media day of the KLPGA Tour OK Financial Group Shotman Open (total prize money of 800 million won) on the 14th, Lee Ye-won recalled her relationship as a junior and said, “Last year, I participated as a rookie and unfortunately did not pass the threshold of winning. This year, I definitely want to repay you with good results.” He did not hide his desire to win. Yewon Lee took second place in this competition last year.

Yewon Lee hit a ‘good shot’ towards her goal. He made two bogeys in the first round of the tournament held at the Club 72 Sky Course (par 72) in Yeongjong Island, Incheon on the 15th, but made eight birdies.

Lee Ye-won, who recorded a first-round total of 6 under par 66, had her name adorned with the highest spot on the leaderboard as of 3 p.m. 

Yewon Lee, who made her debut on the KLPGA tour last year, won the Rookie of the Year award for the first time in her life. However, since it was ‘glory without winning,’ I felt deep regret after the season.

Ye-won Lee, who recorded her long-awaited first win at her domestic opener, the Lotte Rent-a-Car Women’s Open last April, is now a multi-winner at the Doosan Construction Weave Championship in August.

Yewon Lee said, “I had birdie chances in all three holes at the beginning of the game, but I missed them all, which was disappointing. On the 13th hole, I hit about 14 steps with the intention of putting a birdie putt, but it led to a birdie, which gave me confidence, and I was able to play smoothly from then on.” 

Lee Ye-won, who started from the 10th hole, rose to the top by making four consecutive birdies, the so-called ‘Audi birdie’, starting with a birdie on the 13th hole and continuing through the 16th hole. 

She recorded her first bogey on the 5th hole in the second half, but made up for it with a birdie on the 6th hole, and also made up for a bogey mistake on the 7th hole with a birdie on the 8th hole, returning to the clubhouse in good spirits with the sole lead. 

Lee Ye-won, who had the chance to win her third win of the season following Park Ji-young, said, “I didn’t do it first when she won her second win, so I wasn’t too disappointed when Park Ji-young got her third win. All I have to do is get three wins in the remaining competitions.” 

Rain was forecast for the second round of the competition scheduled for the 16th. Regarding this, Lee Ye-won said, “A player who can make good decisions when it rains or is windy is a good player. I choose clubs carefully and try to target in a way that does not result in losing many at-bats even if a mistake is made.”
