Ha-Neul Kim Wins 2016 AXA Ladies (JLPGA)

more pics on my blog: Ha-Neul Kim Wins 2016 AXA Ladies Golf Tournament (JLPGA)

Ha-Neul Kim

For the third straight tournament, South Koreaís Ha-Neul Kim was either alone or had a share of first place after rounds 1 and 2. Unfortunately for her, she was unable to finish the job at Yokohama or T-Point. But at the 2016 AXA Ladies Golf Tournament, she left the field in her wake with a 9-under 5 shot victory. Kimís 5 birdie, 2 bogey 3-under 69 final round was enough to leave international star Jiyai Shin settling for second. Itís her second JLPGA tournament title, following the 2015 Munsingwear Ladies Tokai Classic. It might be a bit premature to say this, but maybe Ha-Neul is the one to challenge Bo-Mee Lee for JLPGA Player of the Year honors in 2016. Through 4 events, she has finished no worse than T7, with 3 top 5s and a win. An argument could be made that two shaky finishing rounds are all that stand between her having 3 wins in 4 events. With her style and charisma, the 27-year old Kim, an 8-time winner and 2-time Money List leader on the LPGA of Korea (KLPGA), could be an enormous star on the JLPGA if she keeps playing like this. Besides Shin being 5 shots back in second, nobody else was closer than 7 shots off the winning score. Thatís a very impressive win for Ha-Neul Kim.

Don't fear failure. ó Not failure, but low aim, is the crime. In great attempts it is glorious even to fail.
