The KPGA season ends with a battle of the best. According to Korean sports news reports, the LG Championship will feature several KPGA title winners, including Jung Chan-min. Also, it is the last tournament trophy of the season.
With a total prize pool of $198,000 and no cut in sight, 61 players are expected to compete for the championships on the line. Also, the LG Championship will determine golfers competing for the KPGA’s Genesis Point Award and Money List.
One of the prizes in the Genesis Open is the Genesis Point Award, awarded to the golfer who accumulates the most Genesis points. KPGA points are awarded based on a golfer’s final tournament place.

The golfer who finishes the KPGA season with the most significant prize money earns the “Money List” title. Any top five finishers in the LG Championship can theoretically win the grand prize of 1,000 Genesis points. No. 1 Ham Jung-woo may be surpassed by No. 4 Kang Kyung-nam or No. 5 Koh Gun-taek.
Two other competitors, Lee Jung-hwan with 5,164 points and Park Sang-Hyun with 4,896 points will also be participating.
The 2023 KPGA season will conclude with the LG Championship after eight months and 22 tournaments. Two golfers won more than one tournament this year. Jung has two – Golfzon-Toray Open and GS Caltex Maekyung Open. On the other hand, Koh has three – the DB Insurance Promy Open, the Honors K Sollago CC Han Jangsang Invitational, and the Shinhan Donghae Open.
Sports betting pick experts say both golfers will be on the course this weekend. Also, they hope to make a solid final statement for the year. Both golfers may look back on this season as their most successful to date, thanks to winning their first KPGA championships and going on to win further tournaments.
