Lee Joo-mi, who started playing golf at the recommendation of her father in middle school, has not yet won a championship while participating in 147 tournaments since joining in 2013. Her tie for 5th at the 2021 Daebo House D Open was her best result, and she barely managed to retain her seed at 58th in the Yen prize money rankings last year.

It was different in her 148th tournament Mediheal Hankook Ilbo Championship, her 10th year as a pro. After leading alone until the second day of the competition, she struggled with a 1-over par in the 3rd round and fell to 4th place. .

Even while Park Min-ji, Park Hyun-kyung, and Jeon Ye-seong climbed in turn, they calmly played their own game. She became the protagonist of the come-from-behind victory by reducing one stroke at the 13th hole, followed by the 17th and 18th holes, respectively.

With her first win, there were many places to say thanks. Lee Joo-mi said, “I am very grateful to the gallery and viewers who supported me a lot on the spot,” and then she thanked the organizers of the tournament, KLPGA officials, as well as her family and sponsors.

Lee Joo-mi, who appeared in an interview after the second round, said, “There are still two rounds left, so rather than being greedy, my goal is to record the top 5 or higher. I’m going to put down my greed and play.” Maybe it’s because I’m still mentally good. This tournament is especially calm.”

Until the end, she kept her composure without being greedy. It was a tournament where you were lucky to win. Last season, it was difficult to protect seed, but now we can enjoy the tour stage without worrying about seed for two years.
