In Gee Chun won the 70th U.S. Women’s Open Championship

By: July 13, 2015

In Gee Chun (World #10, became professional in 2012) won the 2015 U.S. Women’s Open Championship held at the Lancaster Country Club, in Lancaster, Pa. This was In Gee Chun's first appearance at the U.S. Women’s Open Championship and becomes just the third player in history to win in her debut joining Birdie Kim (2005) and Kathy Cornelius (1956). She is the 3rd youngest golfer to win the U.S. Women's Championship.

She won by shooting a 4-under 66 in the final round for a one-stroke come-from-behind victory.  Chun began Sunday’s final round four shots off the lead, but birdied three of her final four holes to finish the tournament at 8-under par 272

With the $810,000 first-place check, In Gee has now earned $1,023,011 in her eight career starts as a non-meber on the LPGA Tour. In Gee Chun played Srixon’s new 4th generation Z STAR golf ball, and wore a Srixon glove

I think we should pay more attention to South Korean professional golfers. 10 of the last 17 majors dating back to the 2012 season have been won by South Korean golfers. On the Asian Tour we can find 28 South Korean golfers (vs only 4 Chinese, 35 – India, 46 – Thailand). South Korean golf should be better exploited from business perspective as well.

They are the top professional golfers:

  • Se Ri Pak
  • Mi Hyun Kim
  • Grace Park
  • Hee-Won Han
  • Shi Hyun Ahn
  • Jeong Jang
  • Soo Yun Kang
  • Christina Kim
  • Meena Lee
  • Seon Hwa Lee
  • Gloria Park
