Park is proud to see South Korea take the lead in restarting sport


As golf finally resumes when South Korea hosts the Korea Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA), the third largest Park in the world, Sung-hyun, is proud that her country is "leading the way" to sports.

The 42nd KLPGA Championship will start on Thursday and will be the first event on the tour, as the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the calendar. It will be played without spectators at the Lakewood Country Club in Yangju.

"The United States has not begun its games due to coronavirus outbreaks, but I am pleased and also proud that South Korea is leading the way for sport resumption," Park told reporters on Wednesday.

However, Park will not be able to travel to Korea because of the lock-down and restrictions on aviation without her trusted caddy, David Jones.

"My caddie is Irish and over there the situation is not very good. They can't get away from their homes, they 're with their children, "said Park, 26. "I just asked my friend a hurry (to be my caddy) in Korea."

Defending champion Choi Hye-jin said she can't wait to get back on the greens, although it would be surreal to play without fans.

"It hit me most when I heard the news that the games weren't gaming," said Choi. "It feels somewhat uncomfortable when I think about the quietness of the game because it's us players only. It's going to feel that it's not a contest.

Kim Sei-young, who has 10 LPGA Tour wins, said that she still tries to figure out how to "re-establish" her goals after a year of the Tokyo Olympics, and is looking forward to competing in the LPGA Tour when it starts.

"The LPGA is going to resume in the U.S. in July, so I want to prepare for this and show my best."
