‘Zero points (0) shock’..Korean team failed to advance to the semifinals of the International Crown

The Korean team, which was trying to defend their title, failed to advance to the semifinals without getting past the group stage.

The Korean team, featuring Ko Jin-young, Kim Hyo-joo, Jeon In-ji and Choi Hye-jin, took part in a four-ball match against Thailand on the second day of the Hanwha LifePlus International Crown (total prize money of $2 million) held at 스포츠토토TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, California on the 6th (Korean time). They lost all of them and didn’t get any points. 

In this tournament, 1 point is awarded for a win, 0.5 points for a draw, and no points for a loss. Following the two losses the previous day, Korea lost both games on this day, so Korea could not accumulate points. 

Ko Jin-young and Kim Hyo-joo lost to Ataya Titikun-Pati Tabatanakit by a three-hole car with two holes left.

Jeon In-ji and Choi Hye-jin also failed to turn around as they were 2 holes behind the last hole to Thailand’s Ariya-Moriya Jutanugarn sisters.

In Group B, which Korea belongs to, Thailand took 2 points and rose to first place with a total of 4 points, while Australia is in second place with 3.5 points. 

The top two teams from each group advance to the semifinals. Therefore, even if Korea wins all matches against Japan on the 7th, it is confirmed that Korea will be eliminated from the group stage because it cannot surpass second place Australia. Japan also scored only 0.5 points and was eliminated from the group stage.

The title defense was also canceled. South Korea won the tournament held in Incheon in 2018. The 2020 tournament has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In Group A, Sweden advanced to the quarterfinals with 4 points. The United States is in second place with three points, but China is chasing with a two-point lead, so we have to wait and see the results of the final group stage match. England has been eliminated.
