Why KLPGA Doosan Match Play for 5 days

It is Doosan Match Play (total prize money of 900 million won) of the Korea Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA). This year, the event will take place at the Nature Garden course (par 72, 6384 yards) of the Radena Golf Club in Chuncheon, Gangwon Province from May 15 to May 19. The event marks the 16th anniversary since its launch in 2008. Ryu So-yeon and Choi Hye-yong won the title after nine holes of extra time in 2009, giving a strong impression, and Park In-bee, dubbed “Golf Empress” in 2018, also won the title for the first time in Korea.

Doosan Match Play had to play for five days due to the new method. There were four matches until 2016. 64 players immediately clashed with each other in a tournament to determine the winner. However, red light was turned on in the box office as the top ranker was caught up by the bottom ranker in the early days of the tournament. A group league was introduced to minimize unexpected events in 2017. It is a desperate measure to enhance discrimination and protect stars in the tournament.

A total of 64 players will be divided into 16 groups. Four players from each group will play three match plays, and the first place finisher will advance to the round of 16. A player who scores the most points will qualify for the round of 16 teams. The player who scores the most points will qualify for the round of 16 teams. After that, the team will play the matches of the round of 16, the quarterfinals, the semifinals, the finals and the third-place match. With the introduction of the group league, the team has changed from six rounds to seven rounds. The first winner of the group league was Kim Ja-young 2.

The method of selecting a group league is also interesting. The event will take place on the eve of the event. Among the 64 players, 16 players who have been allocated A-seed (top seed) will directly draw to select a player from Group B, C, and D who will compete with them. Depending on the result of the draw, the “Group of Death” or “Group of Fortune” will be presented. This year, Lee Jung-min, the winner of the previous event, and Lee Ye-won, the winner of the season, will participate. In particular, players ranking within 60th in the prize money list last year and top rankers ranking this season will take the mound to determine the “match queen.”
