Pepper Savings Bank Wins E1 Charity Open Team Ranking for the First Time

Pepper Savings Bank won the KLPGA Tour’s E1 Charity Open to claim the Korea Professional Golf Club Ranking title. It is the first title of the season and the first title in the Korean Professional Golf Club Ranking, which began keeping track in 2021.

The Pepper Savings Bank Golf Team (Kim Hee-ji, Park Seo-hyun, Hwang Jung-mi, and Yoo Soo-yeon) had all four players make the cut, including Kim Hee-ji, who has been playing an ace role this season, tied for fourth place, and earned 113.25 team ranking points, beating second-place COSSBALL by 0.75 points.

Second place went to COSSBALL Golf Team (Lee Se-hee and Choi Ye-bon). With both players performing evenly, including Choi Ye-bon tying for 11th and Lee Sae-hee tying for 16th, COSSBALL Golf improved on their best performance of the season with 112.50 team ranking points. COSSBALL Golf’s highest ranking this season was third place at the Crisp&C 45th KLPGA Championship, which concluded on April 30.

Meanwhile, third place went to the ‘traditional powerhouse’ Korea Land Trust. The Korean Land Trust Golf Team (Park Ji-young, Park Hyun-kyung, and Cho Ah-yeon), which has one win this season, accumulated 108.67 tournament points with Park Ji-young tying for fourth place. Korea Land Trust last topped the team standings at the Nexen St. Nine Masters 2023, which concluded on April 23.

Three wins already, KB Financial Group gets even stronger as it secures seeding in Bangsinseoul

KB Financial Group, the strongest team in women’s professional golf with three wins this season, is ranked fourth. The KB Financial Group Golf Team (Bang Shin-sil, Ahn Song-i, and Lee Ye-won) had a strong showing with ‘rookie’ Bang Shin-sil winning her debut title, but Ahn and Lee tied for 34th place and only accumulated 108.00 team ranking points 토토사이트.

While they failed to add to their team ranking multiplier, it was a great achievement. With the ‘youngest’ Bang Shin-sil securing her seeding as the champion of the KLPGA Tour event, she will be able to establish herself as the team’s one-two punch alongside Lee Ye-won. The low-seeded Bang has only played in five KLPGA Tour events this season, but her three top-five finishes, including one victory, have helped her climb to sixth on the money list ($278.9 million).

In fifth place is Lotte. With Choi Hye-jin tied for seventh, the Lotte Golf Team (Lee So-young, Choi Hye-jin, Hwang Yoo-min) earned 106.33 points in the team standings.

A total of 45 companies sent players to the tournament, with 29 companies sending two or more players. Meanwhile, 35 athletes competed as independents without a main sponsor.
