Mi-Jeong Jeon Leads After 3rd Round Of 2011 JLPGA Tour Championship Ricoh Cup

Mi-Jeong Jeon

In the final Major of the JLPGA season, South Korea’s Mi-Jeong Jeon fired a 5 birdie, 2 bogey 3-under 69 to lead the 2011 JLPGA Tour Championship Ricoh Cup at 7-under overall after round 3. MJJ is a true superstar on the JLPGA. She won her first event on the Japanese tour in July of 2006 at the Meiji Chocolate Cup. Since then the wins have kept on coming, as MJJ has amassed an impressive 16 JLPGA victories. However, she has not won in 2011. If she is to earn win #17 on the JLPGA this year, she will need to hold off a group of players with champion pedigree, including Bo-Bae Song, Chie Arimura, Jiyai Shin and JLPGA legend Yuri Fudoh. This is a video from the 2nd round (photos are from the 3rd round):

Also, the pictures of 2008 JLPGA Money List winner Miho Koga are from on-course commentary. Due to chronic wrist pain, the 12-time JLPGA winner is retiring. Here is her last hole from the 2011 Elleair Ladies Open last week, her final professional hole.
