KLPGA career 7 wins Lee Seung-hyun retirement ceremony… A fresh start as a putting coach

Lee Seung-hyun (32), who won 7 wins in the Korean Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) tour, had an official retirement ceremony prior to the final round award ceremony of the NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship held at Suwon CC on the 14th.

On this day, at his retirement ceremony, Chung Young-chae, CEO of NH Investment & Securities, handed him a ‘golden putter’ to commemorate his retirement, and Lee Seung-hyun ended his career with warm applause from many colleagues and fans.

Lee Seung-hyun made his debut on the KLPGA regular tour in 2010 and maintained a full seed on the regular tour for 12 years until 2021, recording a total of 7 wins, including 2 major wins. He could have extended his seeding rights with a pregnancy in 2021 and childbirth in 2022, but decided to retire last season.

Since his debut, Lee Seung-hyun has been consistently ranked within the 30th place in the KLPGA money list for 9 consecutive years until 2018 and within the 5th place in average putting, earning the nickname ‘God of Putting’. In particular, he won the Hite Jinro Championship, a major tournament in 2017, by winning the most strokes with 9 strokes and won the 5th ‘no-bogey’ play in the 2018 S-OIL Championship, gaining great popularity among fans.

Lee Seung-hyun said, “I am deeply grateful to NH Investment & Securities for their support. I thought a lot about retirement while taking a break from the tour early last year due to childbirth, and I am grateful for preparing such a meaningful retirement ceremony.” He also added, “I want to focus on nurturing juniors so that I can give back to my juniors the much support and love I received during my career as a player.”카지노사이트
