Park Min-ji, who took a short break after participating in two competitions in March of this year, said, “My shot wasn’t good today, but when the ball went up to the green, almost all of my putts passed or went into the hole, so I got a good score.” She added, “It’s been a long time since I’ve been in a competition and I got such a good score.” “I feel like it’s too much to finish the first round,” he said.

He said he has been suffering from neuralgia recently and explained, “It’s a disease that only hurts the upper right part of the head. They say this disease affects only 5 to 6 people out of 100,000, but they say a lot of young people are getting it these days, too.”

“I think it’s because of the fatigue of Korean society,” Park Min-ji self-diagnosed, adding, “I think it’s because I live too negatively, I’m obsessed with golf, I have a hard time every day, and I frown every time I play golf.”

Minji Park, who has a total of 18 wins on the tour, won six wins each in 2021 and 2022, and won two wins last season.

He, who has not yet won a championship this year, acknowledged the recent slowdown, saying, “I think I played in a random group today for the first time since 2019 (a group other than the group the main players belong to).”

However, Park Min-ji said, “I can’t help but be thankful for this disease.”

In order to overcome this disease, he said, “I try to pay attention to food and lead a regular life,” and accepted it positively, saying, “As a result, the pain disappears and I feel better.”

Park Min-ji was famous for her strong desire to win, but she confessed, “I became a 100% different person,” and “I was so focused on golf, but I hated golf.”

Minji Park looked back and said, “Before I got sick, I had to play well to have fun playing golf,” and added, “It was only after I got sick that I realized that being on the golf course was healthy and happy.”

He said, “Since then, I have never made a frown while playing golf except for the moment of impact. In the past, I said I would stop playing golf after I was 30, but now that I have gotten better at golf, I want to play until I am 40.”

He also said that he felt a lot after seeing Tiger Woods, the ‘Emperor of Golf’, continuously trying to make a comeback after a car accident, and joked, “Woods does that too, so even if I die, I will die on the golf course.”

Minji Park was eligible to participate in the Chevron Championship, a major event on the LPGA Tour, last week, but canceled the event due to neuralgia.

He said, “The U.S. Open was also canceled,” and “It’s unfortunate, but my goal is to live hard every day while preparing for the tournaments I can participate in, and I will look at the situation with the LPGA again when my physical condition improves.”

Park Min-ji, who has not won the KLPGA Championship or Hanwha Classic among the five majors on the KLPGA Tour, said, “I would like to win in any tournament,” and added, “I would be very frustrated if I did not achieve my goal of a Grand Slam, so I don’t want to focus too much on that.” .

Park Min-ji, who also changed her hairstyle to a shorter hairstyle, said about the remaining 2nd to 4th rounds, “I wish I could play haphazardly like I did today,” and “That doesn’t mean I’ll play sloppily, but it means I want to be lenient on myself even if I make a few mistakes. If I play like that, good results will come.” “It will come,” he said. 온라인 슬롯
