Chae-Yoon Park takes 1st place for the first time in her life, after an extended match.
On the 1st, during the final round, Chae-Yoon Park got five birdies, one double bogey and a three-under-par 69 in the Korea Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) Tour McCol & Yongpyong
Chae-Yoon Park, who finished with a total of 13-under-par 203, shared the lead with Jin-Sun Han, Hye-Jin Kim 3 and Jung-Min Jo until she won the extended match.
At the time, Chae-Yoon Park seemed to be getting farther from her championship, due to her mistakes in her double bogey on the 3rd hole. However, she was not shaken by it and hit continuous birdies in the 6th and 7th holes and ended the first half of the game.
Chae-Yoon Park showed higher concentration towards the final half of the game. After pushing through with her pars, she was able to snatch a birdie on the 14th hole. Soon after, she was able to share the lead after dramatically catching up with continuous birdies during the 17th and 18th holes.
Her spirit continued into the extended game. During the first hole of the extended game, which was the 18th hole, she outmatched her opponents with her pars, and was able to win the trophy.
Jin-Sun Han, Hye-Jin Kim 3 and Jeong-Min Jo tied for 2nd place and Ji-Hyeon Kim, with 12-under par 204, came in 5th.
