Na Ri Kim Wins 2013 Studio Alice Ladies

Na-Ri Kim, 2013 Studio Alice Ladies Open winner

“I hadn’t won in about 2 years, so this makes me happy. My goal is to win 3 tournaments this year.” – Na-Ri Kim

1 down, 2 to go for Na-Ri Kim. The South Korean golfer won the 2013 Studio Alice Ladies, her 2nd win on the JLPGA Tour and first in nearly 2 years.  It’s a good start on her goal to win 3 tournaments. Her 2-under round and 4-under overall was enough to edge Yuki Sakurai by 1 stroke. I felt a bit badly for overnight co-leader Ah-Reum Hwang who plummeted down the leaderboard with a final round 6-over 78. Hate to see it all fall apart like that. With the victory, Kim 10.8 million yen (roughly 109,703 USD at rates on 4-14-2013). Rikako Morita leads the overall money list. Low amateur at the 2013 Studio Alice Ladies was Minami Katsu.

  1. Unrelated to this post for the JLPGA. Ariya Jutanugarn has qualified for the Lotte Championship in Hawaii. Look for her to have a strong week on a wet, slow golf course.
