In-gee Chun sparkles in the first round of the 2022 Women’s PGA Championship

In-gee Chun of Gunsan, South Korea is the first round leader at the 2022 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship from the Congressional Country Club in Pontomac, Maryland. On Thursday, Chun shot a score of eight-under-par 64, and has a five stroke lead over Pornanong Phatlum of Khon Kaen, Thailand, and Hey-jin Choi of Gimhae, South Korea.

Chun was in the morning session and started on the back nine. She had nine birdies and one bogey. She birdied the 11th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 7th holes, and bogeyed the first hole. Of Chun’s nine birdies, two of them came on par threes–the second and seventh holes.

Currently ranked 33rd in the world, Chun is a two-time major champion. She previously won the 2015 United States Women’s Open and the 2016 Evian Championship. Both of these majors were dominated by South Koreans. At the 2015 United States Women’s Open, Chun defeated Amy Yang of South Korea by a stroke after shooting a four-round score of -8 at the Lancaster Country Club in Pennsylvania.

Then at the 2016 Evian Championship, Chun beat fellow Koreans Sung-hyun Park and So-yeon Ryu by four strokes. Chun had a four-round score of -21, and was the wire-to-wire winner, as she had the lead after every round in the tournament. One must also realize Chun’s score of -21 is the best score ever in a women’s major golf tournament. Now after the first round of the Women’s PGA Championship, Chun might just have the capability of even breaking that magnificent women’s golf record.
