- Kim’s second consecutive LPGA Tour victory came on the back of a solid all round performance from arguably the women’s game’s best ball striker. Kim was a perfect three for three for sand saves for the week, and as is typical of her play, found plenty of greens. A rare Tour player who carries just two speciality wedges, with a highest loft of 56˚, Kim also employs a combination set of Mizuno irons.
- In addition to leading the LPGA’s greens in regulation statistic for the year, the now 12-time winner also ranks No.1 in putts per GIR, an impressive combination. The 27-year-old opts for a Scotty Cameron blade model putter that features an insert made of Teryllium, a cooper material known for its soft feel.
Kim continues Titleist’s dominance of the LPGA Tour of late, her victory the 10th win from 10 events since the circuit returned from its COVID-19 hiatus.
