Mi-Jeong Jeon shot -4 to finish the first round of the Evian Masters being played this week at the Evian Masters Golf Club in Evian-les-Bains, France. Her 35-33 (68) put her in a tie for sixth with Jeong Jang, Meena Lee, Yani Tseng, Mika Miyazato, Michelle Wie and Na Yeon Choi. Morgan Pressel share’s the lead with Melissa Reid and Sun-Ju Ahn at -6.
Mi-Jeong worked with George Pinnell at the George Pinnell Golf Academy for 2 day’s last week prior to departing to France for the Evian Masters. Pinnell is not surprised with her first round showing, saying “Mi-Jeong is in a good place with her golf swing. She understand’s what she is doing with her club throughout the swing. Couple that with her #1 ranking in putting on the Japan LPGA Tour and you have the recipe for good play.”
Mi-Jeong is currently ranked #17 in the Rolex World Rankings.
