Langley golfer Sue Kim is the latest Canadian to join the LPGA Tour.
This, following the rain-delayed conclusion of the Symetra Tour Championship on Monday, Sept. 30 in Daytona Beach, Fla.
Kim slumped to a final round 80 on Sept. 29, but her tie for 31st left her sixth on the Tour’s money list, enough to secure her LPGA privileges for 2014.
Kim won once this year and added three more top-10 results, and went into the finale ranked fourth.
The tournament was forced into a Monday finish after rain washed out third round play on Saturday, Sept. 28.
Several players were unable to complete their final round on Sunday due to darkness, meaning a delay in official confirmation of the top 10 LPGA graduates.
Barring any further additions through Q-school, there will be at least five Canadians playing full-time on the LPGA Tour next year.
Kim had a decorated amateur career.
In 2007, she triumphed at the CN Canadian Women’s Tour, becoming the first amateur champion.
She was named the Player of the Year at the Canada Score Awards in 2007, ’08, and ’09.
In 2009, Kim was also the Player of the Year for the BC Sports Awards.
