South Korea’s women’s golf team’s quest for an Asian Games medal just got a little tougher.
Kim Min-sol (Soosung Bangtongo) carded seven birdies and a quadruple bogey to shave three strokes off her score in the third round of the women’s individual golf competition at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games on Tuesday at the West Lake International Golf Course (Par 72) in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China, and is tied for fifth place at 10-under par 206. She is 12 strokes off the lead with Aditi Ashok (IND) at 22-under par 194.
Kim was disappointed to drop four strokes on the par-5 eighth hole, where she had birdied the previous two days. Her gold medal chances are effectively over, but she is still four shots behind third-place Lin Shiyu (CHN – 14-under 202) and could make a dramatic run for the medals on the final day.토토사이트
Ashok, the overwhelming leader of the women’s field at the Asian Games, made her LPGA Tour debut in 2017 and has five top-10 finishes in 16 events, including a runner-up finish at the JM Eagle LA Championship in April this year. She is currently seven strokes ahead of second-placed Arpichaya Yubol (Thailand – 15-under 201) and has virtually booked the individual gold medal. Women’s World No. 2 In Ling, who is objectively the best player in the field and has the home course advantage, was tied for ninth at 9-under 207 after three rounds.
Thanks to Ashok’s performance, India will also go for gold in the team event, where the top two scores of the three competitors are combined to determine the standings. After three rounds, India leads the team competition at 29-under par. In second place is Thailand at 28-under par. China, which has three LPGA Tour players in the field, is third at 26-under. South Korea is tied for fourth with Japan at 20-under par in the team competition, led by Yoo Hyun-jo (Cheonan Jungang Bangtongo), who is tied for ninth at 9-under 207.
