In the first round of the Chris F&C KLPGA Championship (total prize money of 1.3 billion won), the first major tournament of the KLPGA Tour season held on the 27th at the Yangju Lakewood Country Club forest path and mountain path course (par 72, 6570 yards) in Gyeonggi-do, Bang Shin-sil made 8 birdies and 1 bogey, He tied one double bogey and recorded a 5-under-par 67.
Bang Sin-sil impressed golf fans with a tie for 8th at the Augusta Women’s Amateur Golf Tournament last year. However, she is playing on the Dream Tour (part 2), not on the KLPGA Tour, as she was ranked 40th in the KLPGA Tour seed match. She was originally scheduled to play on the Dream Tour this week as well, but as the number of players in the tournament increased from 120 to 132, she decided to participate. 토토사이트
