The finals of the Korea Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour Doosan Match Play (total prize money of 900 million won) became a ‘runner-up revenge battle’.

Ye-won Lee defeated Ina Yoon by 3 holes in the semifinals of the tournament held at Ladena Country Club (par 72) in Chuncheon-si, Gangwon-do on the 19th and advanced to the finals.

Lee Ye-won was runner-up, losing to Hong Jeong-min in the finals of this competition in 2022.

Park Hyun-kyung, who will face Ye-won Lee in the finals, was runner-up last year. In the final she lost to Sung Yu-jin.

Hyun-kyung Park defeated So-young Lee by 2 holes in the semifinals.

The semifinal match between Yewon Lee and Ina Yoon attracted attention because it was a return match one week after the final round match of the NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship on the 12th.

At that time, Lee Ye-won defeated Yoon Ina’s fierce pursuit and won, and Yoon Ina had to be satisfied with runner-up, her highest ranking this season.

The match between Lee Ye-won, who can’t hit long shots but boasts the most accurate shots and precise putting on the KLPGA tour, and Yoon Na-na, who is popular for her aggressive play with long shots, ended with Lee Ye-won winning twice in a row.

The outcome was decided on the green.

They battled back and forth with two birdies each until the 7th hole, but Yoon Ina failed to score a par putt in the 8th hole (par 4), so Yewon Lee took the lead by 1 hole.

Afterwards, Lee Ye-won first put in a 10m birdie putt in the 12th hole (par 5), and Yoon Ina failed to put in a shorter birdie putt, so Ye-won Lee ran away by 2 holes.

In the 16th hole (par 3), Yoon Na’s 4m par putt missed, and Lee Ye-won won by 3 holes.

Although Yoon Ina failed to advance to the finals, she was able to advance to the semifinals in her first time participating in this competition.

Hyun-kyung Park was behind by 1 hole until the 12th hole, but turned the game around by winning the 13th, 14th, and 15th holes in succession.

Park Hyun-kyung, who brought the game back to square one thanks to Lee So-young’s failure to keep par on the 13th hole (par 3), won with consecutive birdies on the 14th (par 4) and 15th holes (par 4).

Hyun-kyung Park tied with So-young Lee with par on the 17th hole (par 3), two holes ahead, confirming her advancement to the finals.

Soyoung Lee had to be satisfied with getting past the quarterfinals, which was her previous best score in this competition.
