“Ogu Play” Yuna returns to the field…KLPGA to reduce disciplinary action to 1 year and 6 months

The KLPGA held a board meeting on Tuesday and announced that it has decided to reduce the ban on Yoon from three years to one and a half years. As a result, regular disciplinary action against Yoon will end on March 19. This means that Yoon can participate in all KLPGA tours that will start in Korea from April.

Yoon made her KLPGA tour debut in 2022. She enjoyed immense popularity thanks to her powerful long hit that flew more than 300 yards and displayed good performance. In July, her first year as a rookie, she garnered her first career win at the Ebercollagen Queen’s Crown, emerging as a star player of the KLPGA tour. 안전한 파워볼사이트

However, she was found to have played “Ogu” in the tournament belatedly one month before her victory, and her activities were suspended. In the first round of the Korean Women’s Open in June 2022, Yoon had a rough tee shot at Hole 15. She searched for the ball and continued playing, and finished the tournament. However, a month later, she voluntarily reported that she played with her second shot that was not her ball.

For this reason, she was banned for three years by the Korea Golf Association (KGA), the organizer of the Korean Women’s Open, in August of the same year. Then, a month later, she was given the same three-year ban in the KLPGA. Until September 2025, she will not be able to participate in all competitions hosted or hosted by the KLPGA (tour, seed match, selection match). Practically all competitions held in Korea are banned.

In September last year, the KGA suddenly announced that it would ease the ban on Yuna to one year and six months. The reason is that more than 5,000 petitions were filed to rescue Yuna, and she showed remorse by donating all of her prize money from 13 tournaments in the U.S. minor league.

The KLPGA held discussions on disciplinary reductions and exemptions for Yuna at its board meeting on June 14, but failed to reach a conclusion and postponed its decision to the next board meeting. Then, the board of directors held a vote and decided to reduce the suspension period to one and a half years.
