The Korean women's golf team won a silver medal in the team event at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.
Korea, with its national team consisting of three amateur high school students including Hyeonjo Yoo (Cheonan Central Bangkok High School), Minsol Kim, and Jiyu Lim (Suseong Bangkok High School), won the tournament held on the 1st at the West Lake International Golf Course (par 72, 6,597 yards) in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China.
By the fourth round on the last day, the final total 스포츠토토 was 29 under par, 547 strokes.
Although she was behind Thailand's 34 under par 542 strokes, which ranked first, she stood in the second highest position on the podium, ahead of China's 26 under par 550 strokes, which featured three LPGA tour players.
As a result, Korea ranked second in the women's team golf event at the Asian Games for the third time in a row, following the 2014 Incheon and 2018 Jakarta-Palembang competitions.
The most recent gold medal was won at the 2010 Guangzhou Games.
Korea also added a bronze medal in the individual competition on this day, with Yoo Hyeon-jo scoring a final total of 16 under par and 272 strokes.
Yoo Hyeon-jo hit a hard hit in the 4th round, reducing 7 strokes, raising his ranking from a tie for 9th the day before to 3rd and winning two medals in this tournament.
In the individual competition, Park Gyeol won the gold medal at the 2014 Incheon Games, and at the 2018 Games, no Korean athlete was in the medal range.
The individual gold medal in this tournament was won by Arpicaya Ubol (Thailand), who hit 19 under par 269, and the silver medal was won by Aditi Ashok (India), who hit 17 under par 271.
Uball, who won two gold medals in the individual and team competitions, was born in 2002 and became the top prize money winner by winning five consecutive competitions at the Thailand Women's Professional Golf Tour in 2018 when she was 16 years old.
She entered the LPGA Tour this year and has appeared in 14 tournaments, with her best result being a tie for 13th at the Scottish Open in August.
Yin Luoning (China), ranked 2nd in the women's golf world rankings and considered a strong candidate to win this tournament, finished the tournament with 8 under par 280 strokes and a tie for 8th place.
In addition to Yin Luoning, China was selected as a strong candidate for the championship in both the individual and team events, as top ranking players on the LPGA tour, including Lin Siyu and Liu Yu, participated, but was satisfied with a bronze medal in the team event.
