Yoo Hyun-joo, 29, the sexy queen of Korean women’s golf, participated in the “Doosan Construction Weave Championship” of the Korean Women’s (KLPGA) Tour as a hostess professional for her company. Since she is mainly competing on the second division Dream Tour this season, this will be her first appearance on the first division tour in about a year and two months, since last June.
Since it has been a long time since her last public appearance, many media and photographers followed her from the first day. Yoo Hyun-joo looked surprised at the number of photographers, but she appeared to be relaxed as she waved to the cameras when they were filming her.
She was not consistent with her shots from the first day, and although she made two birdies, she had three bogeys and three double bogeys for a 79 and a 7 over. He had hoped to regain his honor on the second day, but he shot a 76 with one birdie and five bogeys, finishing the day 11 over and failing to qualify.
I’ve done a lot of preparation, but I can’t play the kind of golf I played today,” he told Korean media in an interview.
I’ve done a lot of preparation, but I can’t play like I did today,” Yoo said in an interview with the Korean media. She was wearing a tight pink outfit that accentuated her body line, but her expression was stiff because she couldn’t show her results.
I have been working on my swing for the past two months, but it is far from complete.
Determination after the match
He is known for his tee shots and says he has rarely hit an OB. He even said, “I rarely hit OBs.” He reflected on the match in harsh terms after the latest debacle.
He said, “It is a good experience to play on the regular tour (for second-division tour activities), but I shouldn’t have played like I did today. I am in the process of modifying my swing so that I have better face control when I swing, but I am still in the process of making it, so I tend to make mistakes.”
Nevertheless, he does not appear to be in that bad of shape, with chip-ins from his approach shots and long putts on the birdie scene.
I was getting the distance right on my putts, and I was making a lot of short putts to save par. I am spending more time practicing now than ever before, and I am going to three fitness gyms to prevent injuries and improve my physical fitness.
In 2008, she competed on the first division KLPGA Tour, but failed to earn a seeding after finishing 109th in the money ranking, and since then she has continued to play on the second division tour. At 29 years old, she is already a veteran player, but she has not given up on “fighting” yet.
This will be my last appearance on the regular tour this season. From the second half of the season, I will concentrate on practicing to perfect my swing. Swing modification takes about a year to start with, but I will do my best to complete 80% of it by the end of the year.
Yoo Hyun-joo said that this is the last tournament she will play on the regular tour this year as a hostess pro. She was also asked to participate in other tournaments with a recommendation, but she turned them all down. She has been playing on the second-division tour this season, and she has been winning prizes on the top tour.
If she finishes in the top 20 in the money ranking on the second-division tour this season, she will qualify for the first-division tour next season, but she is in a tough situation, ranked 99th (as of August 13). If that happens, he will have to go through the qualifying round to be held in November. We look forward to the success of Yoo Hyun-ju, who has many fans in Japan.
