Kim chasing LPGA dreams

After spending her teenage years honing her game on the Redwoods Golf Course, the local club is helping the local golfer work towards one more dream.

The golf course is hosting a fundraiser tournament on Friday, May 6, with the money raised going towards helping Kim cover travel costs of getting to the tournaments.

Kim is currently competing as a rookie on the LPGA Futures Tour, finishing 13th on the tour’s first stop at the El Tigre Golf and Country Club in Mexico.

She is working towards earning her LPGA membership in December.

Kim already has an impressive golf resume.

Kim, 20, also captured two B.C. junior girls titles, two bantam girls championships, a Pacific Future Links title, two runner-up finishes at the Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship and received the 2008 Player of the Year Award on the CN Canadian Women’s Tour.

She has also competed on the Canadian national team for five years.
