Sun-Ju Ahn Marks Second Consecutive Win at Fujitsu Ladies

Date
20 October 2014

The Fujitsu Ladies tournament on the Japan LPGA tour, held through October 17th - 19th, proved to be a stage for YONEX golfer Sun-Ju Ahn’s latest accomplishments. Not only did she boast an incredible second consecutive win in the close tournament, but this win marked the first time she has ever won five tournaments in a single year. On top of that, she broke a new record, becoming the first golfer to reach 6 hundred million yen in prize money in the shortest period of time. She now only needs one more victory to return to the prized spot of money list leader. We met up with Sun-Ju after the tournament to get her comments on her victory.

Despite the trend of golfers having trouble getting used to new equipment, since changing to YONEX’s clubs and shafts, Sun-Ju has won two titles in a row, and maintains the number one spot in stroke average. “YONEX’s club fitting focuses exactly on the points that I want, and also takes into consideration my condition. It’s a huge help,” commented Sun-Ju. With an injured wrist, YONEX shifted her driver’s loft angle from 9 degrees to 10 degrees, granting her increased stability in her play throughout the tournament. In addition, with an iron shot and approach that are cut above the rest, she managed to get the ball into the fairway with a confident driver shot in the midst of a high-pressure playoff. Hitting an iron shot from the fairway took her ball within 5 meters of the final hole, leading to a birdy, and a victory in the intense playoff.

With six tournaments left and the title of “money list leader” in sight, be sure to keep your eyes on Sun-Ju Ahn and the YONEX clubs and shafts that she’s taking with her on her way to the top.
