‘Oops! Local rules.’

Korea Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour Jeon Woori was disqualified for not paying attention to local rules.

Woori Jeon packed her bags after receiving a notice of disqualification from the 3rd hole tee box in the first round of the DB Group Korea Women’s Open held at Rainbow Hills Country Club (par 72) in Eumseong-gun, North Chungcheong Province on the 13th.

The reason is because it violates local rules prohibiting the use of distance measuring devices.

Local rules refer to golf rules that apply only to specific competitions.

This will be announced to players in advance during the competition. Players must carefully check the local rules at each competition.

This tournament, hosted by the Korea Golf Association, does not allow the use of distance measuring devices, believing that players measuring distances by looking at a yardage book is part of their performance. 스포츠 토토사이트

If you use it once, a 2-stroke penalty is imposed, but if you use it a second time, you are immediately disqualified.

However, the KLPGA tour allows the use of distance meters according to local rules.

Of the nearly 30 tournaments played each year, only one, the Korea Women’s Open, bans the use of distance measuring devices, which can be confusing.

Jeon Woo-ri, who started the game without thinking using a range finder, remembered the local rule prohibiting the use of range finders before the tee shot on the 3rd hole.

Jeon Woori called the competition committee member and confessed to using the distance measuring device, and when asked by the competition committee member how many times he used it, Jeon Woori answered that he used it continuously in the 1st and 2nd holes, so he could not avoid being disqualified.

Lee Jung-min, who won the Chris F&C KLPGA Championship, the first major tournament of the KLPGA Tour season, withdrew after injuring his wrist during the first round.

Choi Ye-rim, who shot a 5-over-par 77 in the first round, also withdrew from the second round due to illness. 성인웹툰
