Lim Jin-hee (25) got her first thrilling win of the season with consecutive birdies on the 17th and 18th holes.
In the final round of the Korea Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship (total prize money of 800 million won) held at Suwon CC (par 72, 6586 yards) in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province on the 14th, Lim Jin-hee scored 4 under par 68 with 5 birdies and 1 bogey. He recorded a total of 15 under par and 201 strokes, beating Park Ji-young (14 under par and 202 strokes) by one stroke to win the championship.

It was a wire-to-wire victory that kept the joint lead in the first and second rounds to the end, but the double electrode at the end shone. She was two strokes behind in the lead until the 16th hole, but tied for the lead with a birdie on the 17th hole (par 5), and ended the game with a birdie on the 18th hole (par 4).
Even up to the 16th hole, it seemed certain that Bang Shin-sil (19), a rookie from the national team, would be born as a new star by winning her first championship in her life. Bang Shin-sil, who started in 3rd place by 2 strokes behind co-leaders Lim Jin-hee and Lee Ye-won, caught 6 birdies without a bogey with an average 270-280 yard long drive and accurate putts, and scored 15 under par in the middle, 1 stroke to Park Ji-young, who finished the game first. drove the car
However, on the 17th hole, the atmosphere changed drastically as Bang Shin-sil made a bogey with an OB driver shot and Lim Jin-hee made a 2m birdie putt. With Park Ji-young and three players tied for the lead, Lim Jin-hee finished the game with a 4m birdie putt on the 18th hole.

Lim Jin-hee, who won the championship in front of over 20,000 spectators on the final day, said, “It’s different and I feel better to win in front of so many galleries.” “I looked back at the match. She continued, “I’m aiming for two wins this season, and I’m also planning to go overseas later.”
Bang Sin-sil competed for the championship in the championship group at the KLPGA Championship, the first major tournament of the season last month, but ended up in 4th place due to a last-minute search. Lee Ye-won, who won her first debut win at the Lotte Rent-A-Car Women’s Open in Korea, cut 3 strokes and took the lead until the 13th hole, but allowed a turnaround after committing the first bogey of this tournament at the 14th hole.
Park Min-ji, who challenged for a third consecutive victory in the tournament, reduced 3 strokes and finished in a tie for 9th place (8 under par, 208 strokes).
