Interview with Ha rang Lee
The Cantabrian Ha rang Lee has managed to win the trophy thanks to a spectacular return of 66 strokes (-5) and has thus achieved her first victory as a professional at the age of 24. Lee started the second round four strokes behind the leader, but it was no impediment to quickly get to the top, thanks to four birdies in the first nine holes.
The classification underwent constant changes thanks to the number of birdies and eagles that were seen throughout the second round. Luna Sobrón, second with a result of minus five total, and Silvia Bañón and Marta García Llorca third with minus four total, constantly stalked the leadership.
For the second nine holes, the fight for the lead was still very much alive. Silvia Bañón took the lead thanks to three consecutive birdies on 10, 11 and 12. Luna Sobrón recovered from the errors of the first round with three birdies, but the strength and solidity of Harang Lee, with another three birdies for the nine seconds holes, decided the triumph for the player of Korean parents but born in Cantabria.
At the end of the test, Ha rang claimed to have been very comfortable throughout the tour: “I felt super comfortable, I had not competed for a long time and the truth is that I had a great time on the field, I had two very good games and I was very happy and that was the key ”.
In addition, she was very happy to achieve her first victory as a professional and nothing more and nothing less than in one of the courses that has seen her grow: “I feel super happy, because it is one of my favorite courses, it is super beautiful, greens perfect and it’s great to be able to win my first title here ”.
All the players highlighted the good condition of the field, and especially of the Pedreña greens, “fast and very homogeneous”.
The Santander Golf Tour ranking after this first round of the year is headed by the Cantabrian Harang Lee, followed by Luna Sobrón.
The next stop on the Santander Golf Tour will be at the Lerma Golf Club, where the Santander Golf Tour Letas Burgos will be held from October 15 to 16.
