YONEX’s new 18-year-old phenom, Hyo-Joo Kim of Korea, finished at T4th at the LPGA Tour’s LOTTE Championship Presented by J Golf at Ko Olina Golf Club in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Hyo-Joo played consistently throughout the tournament. Her 360yard drive during the second round on Ko Olina Golf Club’s fifth hole was a tournament highlight. The shot made such a big impact that her competitor expressed doubts that Hyo-Joo’s driver conformed to USGA and R&A rules and requested to have the club tested. After having her i-EZONE TX driver was tested and deemed to conform to USGA/R&A rules, Hyo-Joo showed that she deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as world’s best players!
Armed with her YONEX clubs and the all-new, Ultra-thin Multi-layered carbon graphite REXIS KAIZA Tour Shaft, Hyo Joo looks to make a breakthrough on the LPGA Tour!
Hyo-Joo also finished T4th at the KLPGA’s Lotte Mart Ladies Open two weeks prior to the LOTTE Championship Presented by J Golf in Hawaii.
Keep your eyes on both Hyo-Joo and YONEX Golf in 2014!
