‘First win in 8 years’ Lee Joo-mi “Winning prize money? I want to use it to buy a house”

Joo-mi Lee (28, Golden Blue), who enjoyed the thrill of winning her first championship after 8 years of debut, smiled widely. Having received more prize money (180 million won) than last season’s prize money (145 million won) as the winning prize, he smiled and said, “The house contract period is over, so I want to use it to find a new house.”

Lee Joo-mi added 4 under par in the final 4th round of the Korea Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour Mediheal-Hankook Ilbo Championship (total prize money of 1 billion won) held at the Ferrum Club (par 72, 6652 yards) in Yeoju-si, Gyeonggi-do on the 16th, and the final total was 12 under par. With 276 strokes, Park Hyeon-kyung (23, Korea Real Estate Trust, 10 under par, 278 strokes) was beaten by two strokes and climbed to the top.

Lee Joo-mi debuted on her 2015 regular tour and had not won any of her previous 147 events. He recorded’Top 10’ for the first time only in 2021, and was close to’unknown’ last year, finishing in the top 10 twice in 30 competitions.

However, in this tournament, he showed off his steady skills by taking the lead in the second round, and on the last day, he won the championship trophy of his dreams with a come-from-behind victory. 스포츠토토

After the game, Lee Joo-mi said, “I feel good because I gave my parents a small reward for their hard work.”

He said, “I get angry when my play doesn’t go well, but it was the same today.”

Lee Joo-mi, who has not been able to show off her skills since her debut, suffered a lot, including losing her 2020 tour card. Even her parents encouraged her to take another path, saying, “Let’s find a second life for her.”

She went into the season with the ‘humble’ goal of retaining her regular tour seed, but a win in her fourth tournament ensured her full-time tour status for the next two years.

He said, “I have two more years that I hadn’t even thought about,” and “I haven’t set any goals right now, but I think I need to revise my existing goals.”

At the same time, he smiled, saying, “There are many fans who always follow the players on the KLPGA tour, and I also have a small wish to have a fandom.”

Having obtained a huge amount of 180 million won as his winning prize, he recalled what he needed right away, even though he was “happy trouble”.

Lee Joo-mi said, “My hometown is Busan, and I’m living in a room in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do, but the contract period is coming to an end. I think I’ll use it to find a new room.”
