There is No Difference in Skill Between Korean and American Golf Queens
"K-Proud" Park Hyun-kyung, Lee So-yeon, Song Ga-eun, the leading group LPGA Tour player, has no difference in the skills of the Korean-U.S. golf empress
"Korean players play solidly."
The players of Hana Financial Group, who are active in the LPGA Tour, were not wrong. "There is a clear difference between the KLPGA Tour players in terms of the way they play and short game capabilities. Park Ji-young 27, Korea Land Trust, who said, "If you compete in the full season, you will be more likely to win multiple wins." has also been proven since the first day.

On the first day of the Hana Financial Group Championship total prize money of 1.5 billion won, which was held as an international competition, the Korean-U.S. golf empresses competed fiercely.
KLPGA Tour players Park Hyun-kyung 23, Korea Land Trust, Lee So-young 26, Lotte and Song Ga-eun 23, MG Saemaul Geumgo tied for the lead with a 5-under 67.

It was followed by Patty Tabatanakit 24, Hana Financial Group, the 2021 LPGA Tour rookie and Thailand's second-generation jockey, tied for fourth with Madasom 24, Samchully, the winner of the OK Financial Group Uttman Open, which ended on the 10th with a 4-under 68.
Choi Hye-jin 24, Lotte, a former KLPGA Tour "majority," who is active in the LPGA Tour, kept her pride with a 3-under 69 joint sixth. Lydia Ko 26 and Lee Min-ji 27, Hana Financial Group both shot 1-under 71 each, showing that they were more focused on figuring out the course than their performance.

Lee Min-ji said, "Players who have experienced multiple wins in the KLPGA Tour can compete for the title even if they advance to the LPGA Tour," adding, "There are many factors to adapt, such as course, distance, and time difference, but when it comes to skills, there is no significant difference from LPGA Tour players."
"Golf is a probability game," Lydia Ko also said. "Golf is a sport with many variables, so even the top ranker cannot always win." This means that it is not as easy as it sounds to participate in the KLPGA Tour once or twice a year and show off his skills. This is the same reason why KLPGA Tour players often go on the LPGA Tour but do not easily win.

Psychological stability from familiarity is a variable that cannot be ignored in golf. If their skills are similar, it means that they can win or lose by maintaining their condition and composure on the day.
The results of the first day match also reflect this. Song Ga-eun, who was named at the top of the leaderboard early on, said, "The fairway is wide and the rough is not long, so the burden of tee shots is low," adding, "If you keep the green well and create a lot of birdie opportunities, you can score well. The second shot is important. The second shot went well today," he said.

Park Hyun-kyung, who climbed to the top of the leaderboard with her wonderful chip, birdie, said, "I recently participated in the round with the mindset that I may fail to make the cut because I am correcting my grip. Fortunately, good shots came out, such as two chip-ins, he said. "I often doubted myself, but I'm pulling myself together with a pledge not to be swayed by the surrounding situation."
"I think it's going to be very windy, but it's not something I can control either. I will play with courage," he said, expressing his desire to win.
