Ko Jin-young was delighted with her third LPGA Tour Cognizant Founders Cup victory, saying, “It’s an honor.”
In the final round of the LPGA Tour Cognitive Founders Cup held at Upper Montclair Country Club (par 72) in Clifton, New Jersey, USA on the 15th (Korean time), Ko Jin-young recorded 5 birdies without a bogey and hit 5 under par 67.
Ko Jin-young, who recorded a final total of 13 under par and 275 strokes, played an overtime match with Korean-Australian Lee Min-ji. Ko Jin-young, who recorded a par on the first hole of his extension, defeated Lee Min-ji, who wrote down his bogey, and lifted the championship cup.
After the game, Ko Jin-young lowered his stance, saying, “I think I was a little luckier than Min-ji Lee,” and said, “All the players, including the two of us, did their best to finish the tournament successfully.”
On this day, Ko Jin-young succeeded in a dramatic birdie on the last 18th hole and finished the game with Lee Min-ji on a tie. Lee Min-ji, who started the final round later than Ko Jin-young, failed to make a birdie on the last hole, and eventually the winner was eclipsed in overtime.
Regarding the birdie situation in the 18th hole, Ko Jin-young explained, “I thought that I could succeed if the speed was good because the putt feeling was good today.” .메이저사이트
On the first hole of his extension, Ko Jin-young put a birdie putt over 10m into the hole and caught the par. On the other hand, Lee Min-ji missed the 5m birdie putt and the 1.5m par putt.

In particular, all of them have won three times on different courses. Regarding this, Ko Jin-young said, “It seems that winning in all different courses has a deep meaning.”
With this win, Jinyoung Ko achieved her 2nd win of the season and 15th of her career. Ko Jin-young said, “My goal this year is to keep my swing, which was shaken a lot last year, firmly.”
