The 2023 season of the American Women’s Professional Golf (LPGA) tour will start in earnest from February. Korean players are all over the place preparing for the new season.
The LPGA Tour 2023 season has already begun. The season opener, which ended on the 23rd, was the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions. However, after taking this tournament, the season resumes with Honda LPGA Thailand, which opens on the 23rd of next month after a hiatus of about a month. Korean players who did not participate in the Tournament of Champions will start the 2023 season in earnest from this tournament.
Players for the new season are scattered all over the world. Among the major players on the LPGA Tour, Thailand is the country with the most appearances. Choi Hye-jin, who had been concentrating on building her body in Korea, departed for Thailand on the 24th and started preparing for her new season in earnest. Last year, when his condition deteriorated at the end of the season, he faltered somewhat, but after focusing on improving his stamina in Korea, he set out to improve his shot in Thailand. Previously, Kim Hyo-joo went to Thailand early and is focusing on training. She is sweating in Chiang Rai, Thailand, where her longtime mentor, director Han Yeon-hee, has a training camp. 스포츠토토
Yu Ran, who passed the LPGA Tour Qualifying Series as the top scorer, is also preparing for the new season in Thailand. Departing for Thailand on the 16th, she has been preparing for a successful LPGA debut for about a month. He plans to focus on refining the short game for more sophisticated play.
Ko Jin-young, the world’s highest ranked Korean player (5th), is training in Vietnam. Suffering from wrist pain in the second half of last year, he joined the training camp of his instructor, Lee Si-woo, who helped him a lot in his swing in the past, and is digesting his training. Ko Jin-young, who is concentrating on building her body rather than participating in the Tournament of Champions, is expected to start at the HSBC Women’s World Championship, a ‘defending champion’ competition, in early March at the earliest.
Some players are preparing for the new season in the United States. Jeon In-ji, who won the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship last year, has been preparing for the season for nearly a month in Palm Springs, California, where Park Won’s camp, where she has been teaching for a long time, is located. Park Seong-hyun, who promised to revive this year, goes to the United States on the 20th and devotes himself to preparing for the season for about two months. Park Seong-hyun, who has been focusing on physical strength training in Korea, said, “If I go to the US, I will supplement my technical skills.”
