Minji Park's tee shot on the 3rd hole of the final round

Park Min-ji achieved the record of winning four consecutive single competitions for the first time in the history of the Korea Ladies Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour.

Minji Park hit 2 under par 70 with 3 birdies and 1 bogey in the final 3rd round of the Celltrion Queens Masters (total prize money of 1.2 billion won) held at The Legend Course (par 72, 6,563 yards) in Seolhaewon, Yangyang, Gangwon-do on the 9th.

Park Min-ji, whose final total was 13 under par 203 strokes, won the championship by three strokes over Lee Je-young, Jeon Ye-seong, and Choi Ye-rim (10 under par 206 strokes), who were tied for second place.

Minji Park, who took the lead in rounds 1 and 2 and maintained the top of the leaderboard in round 3 to win wire-to-wire, received a prize of 216 million won.

In particular, Park Min-ji reached the top of the Celltrion Queen's Masters in 2021, 2022, and this year as well last year, achieving 4 consecutive wins in this competition, setting a milestone by becoming the first player on the KLPGA Tour to win 4 consecutive wins in one competition.

Previously, the record for the most consecutive wins in a single tournament on the KLPGA tour was 3, held by the late former KLPGA Chairman Ok-hee Koo, Se-ri Pak, Soo-yeon Kang, Hae-rim Kim, and Min-ji Park.

In addition, Minji Park maintained her Celltrion Queen's Masters crown until this year, surpassing her seniors and recording a record of 4 consecutive wins.

Minji Park has become the main character in the history of tying the record for most wins in a single tournament on the KLPGA Tour, regardless of whether it is consecutive or not. He stood shoulder to shoulder with Go Woo-soon, who won the KLPGA Championships in 1990, 1992, 1994, and 1996.

Park Min-ji, who was the top prize money winner for two years in a row with six wins in 2021 and 2022, added the multiplier in about a year after the BC Card and Hankyung Ladies Cup in June last year, gaining 19 wins in total on the tour and getting close to 20 wins.

In addition, Park Min-ji also collected 300 million won as a special prize that Celltrion, the organizer of this tournament, offered as a special reward for winning for the fourth time in a row. In addition to the winning prize, she took home 516 million won in this tournament alone. Special prize money is not reflected in KLPGA official records.
