Despite it being her first LPGA major tournament of the season, Hyo-Joo played with confidence and demonstrated adept performance. On the first day she broke the record for lowest round in a major tournament with 10-under-61. She maintained good concentration and demonstrated stable form to the very end, snatching a come-from-behind victory at the 18th hole on Sunday’s final round.
Hitting with her i-EZONE clubs and REXIS KAIZA shafts, Hyo-Joo had outstanding stability on her tee shots at this tournament. Her driving accuracy percentage throughout the four days marked at 82.69%—the highest score of the top 10 players.
“Thanks to my YONEX driver with their shaft, I was able to have good stability on my tee shots and play with big confidence at such a major stage for the victory,” Hyo-Joo said.
We are very proud of Hyo-Joo's sensational win at The Evian Championship. Be sure to keep your eyes on Hyo-Joo’s further achievements and the YONEX clubs and shafts that help her out along the way.
