Bang Shin-sil already created a stir even before this tournament and showed a strong presence as a player who won’t be surprised when he wins.
With a height of 1m73 and a long hit exceeding 260 yards, she competed for the championship by placing 4th in the KLPGA Championship in April and 3rd in the NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship earlier this month. The championship group experience at that time served as a stepping stone to this championship.
From beginning to end, he outperformed his pursuers with a safe and calm game operation. Bang Shin-sil, who took the lead by one stroke in the rain, made a birdie in the 16th hole (par 5) and put a wedge in the game.
Kim Hee-ji of the same group, who was chasing by one stroke, made a bogey at this hole and moved away by three strokes. Kim Min-seon, who was also chasing by one stroke, also made a bogey at the 17th hole (par 4) and fell away from the championship.
Bang Shin-sil, who won the first championship among rookies this year, secured the right to participate in the remaining tournaments this year and the regular tour until the 2025 season. It is the 10th time in his career that Bang Shin-sil has achieved his first win wire-to-wire.

“I had a cold, so I had a stuffy nose, cough, and deafness. I endured with mental strength,” Bang Shin-sil said, “I had a lot of regrets about missing the championship in the last two tournaments, but it turned out to be a good experience, so I think I was able to win today.” He revealed the secret of the high-caliber No. 1 Mercury.
Regarding the secret to becoming the best long hitter on the KLPGA tour, he explained, “I was on the long hit side even when I was in the national team, but I did swing speed training three times a day for an hour and a half for two and a half months in winter training this year. So I gained about 20 yards more.” Nevertheless, when asked if he had any plans to increase the flight distance, he resolutely said, “No. Now, I’m thinking of increasing the accuracy here.”

“My friends and older sisters who played the national team together are all playing on the regular tour, but I had a lot of trouble because I wanted to go up together,” he said with a laugh, saying, “It’s amazing as if I became a celebrity.” .
Selecting “Senior Jinyoung Ko, who has a good mentality and has a lot to learn from his sincere efforts,” he said, “I want to consistently be in the top 10 in the remaining competitions, and I want to win the sponsored KB Financial Competition.”
