Last year’s Korean Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour rookie of the year, Lee Ye-won (20), will look for her second win of the season at the Ebercollagen-Dusiena Queens Crown, the final event of the first half of the season, which begins on Wednesday at the par-72 Dusiena Country Club in Jeju, South Korea.
Lee reached the top of the leaderboard for the first time since her debut at the Lotte Rent-a-Car Women’s Open, the season’s domestic opener in April. Since then, she has been searching for a second win, but has been unable to add to her tally despite four top-10 finishes. She also narrowly missed out on the title. In the final round of the NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship in May, she was tied for the lead and had a chance to win, but ended up tied for third. At the Celltrion Queens Masters in June, she had a chance to claim her first two wins of the season, but lost the title to ‘Dae Se’ Park Min-ji (25) in a playoff.
“If I can stick to my routine, I can win two titles,” said Lee, who finished tied for 22nd at the Daewoo Women’s Open at Daewoo Montver Country Club in Pocheon on Monday. Lee, who finished the tournament in a tie for 22nd place, has a routine that she usually follows the night before a tournament round, always practicing empty swings and putts before going to bed. “Recently, I’ve skipped this practice when I was very tired, and it always resulted in a shaky swing and poor putts in the next day’s round,” he said. “For this tournament, I will definitely practice the night before the round no matter how hard it is.”
There’s also the heat to contend with. Lee, who is notoriously susceptible to heat, has been practicing in the heat of the southern hemisphere’s Australian summer, where temperatures can reach 40 degrees Celsius in the middle of the day in January. “When it’s still hot, I often miss iron shots or important putts that require delicacy,” Lee said. Even when she lost to Park Min-ji in a playoff, she said, “The heat made me lose focus and miss a few putts.” Lee’s average putt count increased from 29.7 in the nine tournaments before May to 30.4 in the five tournaments he has played since June. “My drive and irons are somewhat stable, but my putts are still shaky,” he said, adding, 카지노사이트 “I’m confident that I can win if I can focus on my putts in the heat.”
