The ‘R&A Women in Golf Forum’ hosted by the Royal Golf Association of England (R&A) was held at Tanah Merah Country Club in Singapore on the 9th.
At this forum, with the theme of women’s golf, which is rapidly growing in Asia, presentations were made on the importance of increasing women’s golf population and various women’s golf leadership for an inclusive golf culture, followed by in-depth discussions.
A total of 80 golf officials from 18 countries attended the forum, and after each speaker’s presentation, discussions were held for the development 메이저놀이터 of women’s golf and international exchange. Key speakers included ‘Women’s Golf Legend’ Se-Ri Pak, R&A Director Jackie Davidson, R&A Asia Pacific Regional Director Dominic Wall, Gachon University Professor Soon-Young Kim, and AGLF Secretary General Paul Park.
Pak Se-ri was her first speaker. Having been inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame, she presented on the theme of her experience gained through her 20 years of touring and overcoming challenges and crises.
Pak Se-ri said, “I participated in a tournament when I was active, and a person who contributed a lot to Malaysia’s golf came and told me that he was very proud of me. I am Korean, but I still remember his words that he was proud as an Asian.” It became an opportunity for me to think that I want to further develop my golf.
“Currently, there is a lot of focus on the professional tour, but the process of finding gemstones and making jewelry is very important and I think it’s an assignment that we need to solve,” he said. We must focus on. In particular, we must introduce a curriculum and systematic system for junior golf education, and we must be able to experience a lot as a life sport. To that end, we will continue to work hard to develop R&A and youth golf.”
The forum was also attended by KLPGA Senior Vice President Soonmi Kim and Vice President Youngmi Lee, as well as Pro Aesook Kim, who was active on tour at JLPGA and KLPGA.
AGLF Secretary General Paul Park said, “It is very encouraging that KLPGA members such as coach Se-Ri Pak, Soon-Mi Kim, Young-Mi Lee, Ae-Sook Kim, and Soon-Young Kim attended the forum and exchanged opinions together on the world women’s golf stage.” In 2018, not only the existing 5 tournaments of the LAT series, but also New Zealand, Thailand, Philippines, Hong Kong, etc., are making great efforts to create new women’s golf tournaments. We are trying to build a platform for the Tour (LAT) series.”
