At 12:25, after the previous group started, around 12:30, Kim So-yi and Ahn So-hyun climbed into the tee box and stretched to adjust their condition.
One minute left at 12:40, the tee-up time, not a single player was seen. The players also looked at the large clock behind them, and the KLPGA officials also looked at the clock with a nervous expression.
At that moment, the caddy and Jo Eun-hye were running to the tee box with a golf club. It started with a difference of 10 minutes from the previous players, but there was a gap of 15 due to the intermediate break time, so it seemed that they went to the clubhouse to exchange golf clubs.
Fortunately, Cho Eun-hye, who arrived a minute before tee-up time, took a sip of water and hit her tee shot right away. Cho Eun-hye’s tee shot flew 265.8 yards and landed safely on the fairway. Cho Eun-hye returned to her caddy bag, took a break, and headed for her second shot until her other colleague hit her tee shot.
