Golf-Chun defeats suspicious people to end the title drought in majors

Article author:



Chun In-gee said at the Women's PGA Championship in Bethesda on Sunday, South Korea was urged to retire from golf with a three-and-a-half-year title drought that snapped on its third major.

The 27-year-old Wire-to-Wire victory at the Congressional Country Club was her first title since winning the Hanabank Championship in October 2018 at home ground.

"When I was in a slump, some people said,'Insey, the game isn't good right now, so I should retire,'" she recalled.

"But no matter what they say, I believed I could win again. I'm very proud now ... I stick to it I kept playing. That's the way I won this week. So I'm very grateful. "

The sizzling course record of Par 8 Under 64 opens. We dropped Chun to the flyer in the round, but 75 in Round 3 was able to get the tracking pack closer to within 3 shots. Four bogies in the front nine of Sunday's final round wiped out her advantage, and she looked back at American Lexi Thompson, who was lagging behind with two shots at the top of the leaderboard.

"I want to tell the truth," she said. "I couldn't control all the pressure. That's why I had four bogies.

" At the same time, this course is never easy. Congressional Country Club Was a hard golf course and the pin position was tough. Sometimes my golf isn't perfect. "

Two birdies with one bogey when Thompson was frustrated by the back nine. However, Chun proved to be enough to win the title at the Purper Finish.

"I believed that if I stick to my game plan, I have a chance in the back nine," Chun added.

"So I tried to hang there. I'm very happy to be there, but my body is still shaking."

With this victory, Chun I won a check for $ 1.35 million. This jumped significantly from the $ 487,500 she brought back from her last big win at the 2016 Evian Championship. (Report by Nick Mulvenney, edited by Peter Rutherford)
