Hyo-Joo Kim Achieves 6th Win of Season; Reaches Top Spot on Money List

Date
27 October 2014

Continuing her string of victories this season, YONEX golfer Hyo-Joo Kim won her latest title at the KLPGA KB Finance Star Championship held through October 23-26. This marks her sixth title of the season—among those her Evian Championships title.

Hyo-Joo is proving to be an unstoppable force on the course ever since she started using YONEX’s golf gear. Boasting unparalleled proficiency on the court with six wins among her 25 tournament-appearances this year (at both US and Korean LPGA tours), she has achieved an incredible 24% winning percentage. Once again boasting a stable driver shot, she was able to pull through for a victory over the world No. 2 player behind her on the leaderboard.

Even with tournaments still left in this season, Hyo-Joo has already secured the top spot on the money list, closing off this 2014 season on an incredibly high note. “Becoming the Korean LPGA money list leader is like a dream! Thanks to YONEX’s precise fitting which takes my current condition and swing into consideration, I was able to make stable shots and end 2014 with amazing results,” commented the 19-year-old golfer. Furthermore, she has reached the No. 10 spot in the Rolex Women's World Golf Rankings. She continues to be known around the world as one of the top names in women’s golf.

Meanwhile, at the Nobuta Group Masters GC Ladies tournament held through October 23-26, YONEX golfer Sun-Ju Ahn made it to second place, and maintains her ranking as the money list leader. On both the Japanese and Korean LPGA tours, YONEX’s golf gear continues to impress. There’s not much of the season left, but be sure to keep your eyes on YONEX’s golfers and the gear that keeps delivering them amazing results.
