- 26 May 2014
YONEX Golfer Sun-Ju Ahn claimed her second JLPGA title of the year at the Chukyo TV Bridgestone Ladies Open, which was held in Toyota, Aichi from May 23rd to 25th.
On the third round of the final day, Sun-Ju maintained her solid form from the previous two rounds. Her three birdies in the last 8 holes were especially strong scores, granting her a significant lead over her rivals for the crown.
With this 15th JLPGA Tour title under Sun-Ju’s belt, her ranking rose from 4th to 2nd on the money list. In just 108 games, she has amassed over 500 million yen in prize money, breaking the record for most amount of prize money won in the least amount of games.
As a result of the victory, Sun-Ju secured a place at one of the most prestigious major golf tournaments, the Women’s British Open in July.
“It became a big advantage for the win that I had a stable performance on my tee shots thanks to YONEX’s club fitting for my swing, condition and head speed,” Sun-Ju commented after her victory. She also mentioned the superiority of YONEX clubs and REXIS Shafts in this interview; http://youtu.be/V8tqstDBl0A.
Additionally, in another interview featuring Hyo-Joo Kim, she comments on how much trust she has in her YONEX clubs and shafts.
