Enjoyment, not wins the focus for Jang

Ha Na Jang has already reached her target of two wins for the season, and while she plans on adding a few more pieces of silverware to her collection, winning tournaments is not what’s most important to her.

Jang followed up victory at the Coates Golf Championship on February 6, her first on the LPGA Tour, with a win at the HSBC Women’s Champions exactly a month later.

Having risen to fifth on the world rankings on the back of those results, the 23-year-old is enjoying a stellar start to the season, and key to this has been the amount of fun she’s having.

“So this season, my target is like two wins, but right now, two wins very fast,” Jang told the LPGA website. “I don’t want to think about score and another win. I’m just playing every week, so it’s very fun.”

She added: “I try to really enjoy playing. Just not really too much thinking. I just be patient every day.”

Jang joins a top field at the JTBC Founders Cup this week, with 16 of the world’s top 20 players set to battle it out at the Wildfire Golf Club.
