Employees gathered at YONEX’s front entrance to give Hyo-Joo a spirited greeting. Once inside, an award ceremony was carried out to celebrate Hyo-Joo’s remarkable performance, where she was presented with a gold-plated driver by YONEX president Ben Yoneyama. After the ceremony, the 19-year-old golfer took a look at the YONEX showroom.
“Konnichiwa! Thank you all for the great welcome. I am so happy that I have a wonderful partner like YONEX. I plan to continue doing my best!” commented the golfer at the ceremony.
Amongst her several achievements this season, Hyo-Koo Kim shone the brightest at the USLPGA major, The Evian Championship. On the tournament’s first day, she shot a record-breaking 10-under-61 round, and went on to win the tournament. Along with her five victories on the Korean LPGA tour this year, as well as topping the Korean money list, the young Korean has certainly made herself known this year. At 19 years old, she still has a long career ahead of her; so don’t miss her further achievements!
