‘Desert Fox’ Lim Hee-jung will focus on injury treatment for the time being.
Lim Hee-jung withdrew during the second round of the Rainbow Hills CC South and East Course (Par 72-6721 yards) in Eumseong, Chungcheongbuk-do on Saturday. Although she played through the injury, she was unable to show her best and failed to achieve her goal of finishing the tournament.
The injury was more serious than expected. On July 17, Lim’s management company, Sports Illustrated, said, “Her degenerative arthritis pain in her wrist has recently intensified, and the area where she ruptured her anterior cruciate ligament in January 2019 also reappeared during this tournament. ‘She has been taking anti-inflammatory and painkillers until this tournament, and has also been undergoing physical therapy between matches,’ the organization added.토토사이트
In the end, Lim decided to rest for the rest of the first half of the tournament, prioritizing the treatment of her injury. She canceled her participation in the BC Card-Hankyung Ladies’ Cup 2023 from July 23-25 and the EverCollagen-Dersena Queen’s Crown 2023 from July 13-16. As a result, Lim is expected to return to action at the Jeju Samdasu Masters on August 3 at the earliest, depending on the extent of her injury recovery.
