Junior golf competition under Pak Se-ri name to be held in the U.S.
A golf competition under the name Pak Se-ri, the legendary Korean golfer, will be held in the U.S.

 

Starting in August 21, Pak Se-ri Junior Championships will be held for four days at the Butte Creek Country Club in Chico, California. The Pak Se-ri Hope Foundation and AJGA are the hosts, and 96 players aged 12-19 around the world, including from Korea, U.S., Canada and China, will participate, engaging in 54 holes for a stroke play to determine both boy and girl winners.

The female winner will be given the chance to compete at the KEB Hana Bank Championships, the only competition in Korea that belongs to the LPGA Tour. Pak Se-ri will join various programs including golf lessons with the junior players after each round.

“I hope this event serves as a valuable chance for junior players share many things here to learn and upgrade their capability," said Pak who grabbed 25 wins in the U.S. LPGA Tour.
