10 years went by until Seo finally won on the KLPGA Tour…259 of 260
Seo enjoyed her first win in her 260th career start on the Korean Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) Tour.

She finished tied for the lead with Noh Seung-hee at 14-under par.

Ahn was in tears at the time, but Seo, who won in her 260th career event, was all smiles.
“I thought I wouldn’t be able to win a championship in my 10th year, but I’m so happy to be at the top, it’s unreal,” Seo said, “I wanted to pretend to do a championship interview, and I wanted to make my parents look like ‘winner mom and dad’.”
Born in 1995, Seo’s five runner-up finishes on the regular tour have been her career high. This year, she tied for second at the E1 Charity Open in May.
She had five chances to win the title but failed to cross the threshold. After 260 attempts and 10 years of waiting, she finally won.
“I’ve been talking about quitting golf for a while, and I was actually going to play until next year and then quit,” Seo said.
But the win changed her goals. 카지노사이트넷 “Now that I’ve gotten over a big hurdle with my first win, I’m determined to win two or three more,” she said.
