Seo Yeon-jeong, 28, a 10-year veteran of the Korean Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour, has won her first title after 259 tournaments and 260 starts.

Seo carded five birdies and a double bogey for a three-stroke total of 14-under-par 202 in the third and final round of the KLPGA Tour’s KG Ladies Open at the par-72 Sunny Point Country Club in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province. Seo, who tied with fellow Korean Seung Hee Noh (22) of Yojin Construction Industries, won the first extension on the 18th hole (par-5) to take home KRW144 million.

It was Seo’s first victory in more tournaments than any other player in tour history. Since making her full-time tour debut in 2014, Seo has been unable to break through to the winner’s circle, finishing runner-up five times. Seo, who also tied for second at the E1 Charity Open in May, won her 260th career event. She played 23 more tournaments than Ahn Song-i (33), who reached the top after 237 tournaments at the ADT Caps Championship in November 2019.

In the first overtime, the second shot decided the match. Seo stayed in the fairway to put her third shot on the green, while Noh Seung-hee sent his into the rough to the right of the cart path and ended up in the rough in front of the green. Seo sent her birdie putt to the front of the hole to save par, while Noh shook her head as she missed a par putt from about 2.5 meters. Noh, who was looking for her first win in her 97th Tour event, had to settle for a career-best runner-up finish.

“I’m so happy to win in my 10th year, 토토 but it doesn’t feel real. It’s great to share the joy of my first win with my parents,” said Seo. Seo, who joined the tour with world No. 3 Jin Young Ko (28), said, “I was always saying that I was going to quit golf. I thought I would only play until next year and then stop,” she said. “Now that I’ve gotten over the hump of one win, I’ll work harder to win two or three.”

Seo made headlines in 2012 when she refused to accept a Bentley car for a hole-in-one at the Hanwha Financial Classic, claiming she was an amateur. At the time, organizer Hanwha Financial offered to give her a car worth 270 million won, saying that “a hole-in-one is not the same as a prize,” but she refused, saying it was “against the spirit of amateurism. “There are still people who call me ‘Bentley,'” she said, adding, “This win is better than the hole-in-one.” She smiled broadly.


The tournament has produced a Tour first-time winner six times in a row. Kim Ji-hyun in 2017, Chung Seul-ki in 2018, Park Seo-jin in 2019, Kim Soo-ji in 2021, Hwang Jung-mi in 2022, and now Seo Yeon-jung have all earned their first victories here.
