Galleries waited for her with umbrellas even in the rain. And the best long hitter in Korea has obtained a full seed for the Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) tour. The future of Korean women’s golf has also been opened. Many golf fans agree that it will be a new vitality for Korean women’s golf, which is struggling alone on the international stage.

Bang Shin-sil recorded two birdies without a bogey in the third round on the last day of the KLPGA Tour 11th E1 Charity Open (total prize money of 900 million won) held at Seongmunan Country Club (par 72, 6520 yards) in Wonju City, Gangwon Province on the 28th. Bang Shin-sil, who shot her final total of 9 under par 207, won her first win in her career by winning the ‘wire-to-wire’, which did not lose her lead from the first round to the last.
What is most remarkable about her is that she broke the 200 million won prize money (278.89 million won) in just five competitions, setting the record for the smallest competition in this category. The previous record was that outstanding players such as Choi Hye-jin, Jo A-yeon, and Park Min-ji exceeded the prize money of 200 million won in six tournaments.
Bang Sin-sil played in the championship group on this day, following the 4th place in the KLPGA Championship last April and the 3rd place in the NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship earlier this month. But she has always been sluggish in her recent final days. She often came out with disappointing short games, and she collapsed at every critical juncture. However, on this day, she played neatly without bogey, and she held the championship trophy in her arms.
Bang Shin-sil won the first championship among rookies this year, and with this victory, he secured the right to participate in the remaining tournaments this year and the regular tour until the 2025 season. It is the 10th time for Bang Shin-sil to achieve his first win wire-to-wire.
Bang Sin-sil, who took the lead by one stroke in the game, which was held in the rain all day, seized the victory at the 16th hole (par 5). He caught a birdie by sending the third shot he tried around the hole green to a distance of about 1m from the hole. On the other hand, Kim Hee-ji, who was chasing by one stroke, missed a par putt of a similar distance, and the gap with Bang Shin-sil quickly widened to three strokes. Kim Min-seon, who was one stroke behind Shi Bang Shin-sil, also lost the championship competition with a similar scene of missing a par putt of about 1m in the 17th hole (par 4). In fact, the game ended with just one shot. Bang Sin-sil managed to catch the par in the remaining two holes with a smooth operation and finished the game.
Bang Sin-sil, born in 2004, is 173 cm tall. He has great distance as well as his great height. He established himself as the best ‘long hitter’ this season, recording an average distance of 264.6 yards. Last year, he ranked 40th in the KLPGA tour seed match, and this year, he was on the second part of the tour, and there was a limit to the number of regular tour appearances, but with this victory, he obtained a full seed on the regular tour at once.
Bang Shin-sil is now almost completely healed, but he also overcame the difficulties of suffering from “hyperthyroidism” in 2019. With this win, Bang Sin-sil jumped up to 6th in prize money and grand prize points, and 3rd in rookie award points. The seed right for the room will be activated from the ‘Celltrion Queen’s Masters’, which opens on June 9th.
Meanwhile, in this year’s KLPGA Tournament, 5 players who won the first regular tour championship in the KLPGA Tour competition, including Lee Ye-won, Lee Joo-mi, Choi Eun-woo, Park Bo-gyeom, and Bang Shin-sil, were born, and are facing an unprecedented spring and autumn era.
