19-YEAR-OLD ROOKIE HYO JOO KIM CAPTURES SECOND LPGA TOUR WIN

Shooting a 5-under 67 to defeat Stacy Lewis by three strokes

Pressure doesn’t seem to faze 19-year-old Hyo Joo Kim. At least that’s the way it seems after the LPGA Tour rookie delivered a masterful display in Sunday’s final round of the JTBC Founders Cup, shooting a 5-under 67 to defeat Stacy Lewis by three strokes and capture her second LPGA Tour win.

Kim burst onto the LPGA scene at last year’s Evian Championship. A member of the KLPGA at the time, Kim outdueled LPGA and World Golf Halls of Fame member Karrie Webb as she sank a 12-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole to defeat Webb by one and capture her first LPGA  win and her first major championship. It was also the first major championship that Kim had ever competed in on the LPGA Tour.

On Sunday, Kim was paired in the final group with another top player in the women’s game – Stacy Lewis – and once again she didn’t seem to flinch when the pressure was on her. After a bogey on the 10th hole, Kim bounced back with three straight birdies and didn’t seem to be affected by the pressure as she made birdie to clinch her victory.
