Hyo-Joo Kim Claims First LPGA Major Title at The Evian Championship

Rising star YONEX golfer, Hyo-Joo Kim won the fifth major tournament of LPGA Tour, The Evian Championship held at the Evian Resort Golf Club in France from September 11th to 14th. Claiming her first LPGA Tour and major title at the tender age of 19 marks another fantastic achievement for the young golfer.



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.
