From the most powerful prize money queen of all time to a super rookie, the battle has begun in earnest!
The Korean women’s professional golf tour started on April 6, and the “Tsuyokawa” golfers have begun their heated battle across the ocean. In addition to the record-high prize money of over 30 billion won (approximately 3 billion yen), the “KLPGA PR Models” are also attracting the attention of fans.

The players are the “faces” of Korean golf, selected by the association based on the results of fan voting and their past performance. They participate in events sponsored by the association, have calendars and postcards produced, and are at the forefront of the association’s publicity activities, acting as a bridge to the fans,” said Kim Myung-woo, a sports writer and expert on Korean golf.
Twelve PR models have been selected for this season. The most notable player is Park Gyeol (27).
She is so good-looking and has such a great style that she could work as an actress. Of course, she is also a top-class golfer, and her greatest weapons are her consistent driver and her putting, which ranked 15th among all players last season. This off-season, she has been working hard to strengthen her lower body and renewing her clubs.
Other popular and talented players include Park Min-ji (24), the absolute queen who has been ranked No. 1 in the money ranking for two consecutive years, and Lee Ye-won, a 20-year-old rising star who won her first domestic tournament this season,” said Kim.
The first domestic major tournament to be held in Ibaraki Prefecture in May has an invitation limit for overseas players, and there is a possibility that these girls will come to Japan. Their brilliant play is sure to entertain many fans, not only in Korea.
