Hyo-Joo made the amazing 154-yard shot on the 14th hole, using a YONEX N1-CB forged iron. The rising star sent the ball launching, with it landing right before the pin, and rolling confidently into the hole. Thanks to this hole in one, Hyo-Joo finished tied for ninth with a score of 8-under 284.
This marks the first year Hyo-Joo Kim is competing primarily on the US LPGA tour. She achieved her first win quickly this past March at the JTBC Founders Cup, and has managed to pass the qualifying rounds for all the tournament’s she’s entered this year. Boasting exceptionally steady play, the Korean golfer is at No. 2 in scoring average (69.723), stands at No. 3 in Top 10 Finishes (58%), and is maintaining a high ranking of World No. 4.
Be sure to keep an eye on Hyo-Joo as she aims for her second victory of the year and an increased world ranking, along with the Yonex clubs that back her up.
