Grace Kim wins Lotte Championship with full bag of Srixon/Cleveland Golf equipment

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., April 16, 2023 – In just her third start on tour, LPGA rookie Grace Kim, wins the Lotte Championship in a three-way playoff to capture her first LPGA Tour title with 13 Srixon/Cleveland Golf clubs in her bag and the Z-STAR golf ball. 

Heading into the final round, Kim was T-2, and one back of the leader after opening rounds of 71-67-70. Making the turn at 1-under, Kim made four birdies on the back nine, two of them coming on the tough 17th hole, and the par-5 18th to force her way into a playoff. Playing the 18th hole again, Kim made a 5-foot birdie to win on the first playoff hole, finishing the tournament at 12-under par.

“I really didn’t have high expectations going in, I just tried to play my own game and I didn’t force anything, I’m still speechless,” Kim said in her post-round interview. “I tried my best and it came out to be a good result.” 

From tee-to-green, Kim was dialed in, hitting 48 of 56 fairways for the week using the Srixon ZX7 Mk II Driver and 54 of 72 greens in regulation using Srixon ZX5/ZX7 Irons. Kim will look to keep her positive momentum going, as the LPGA Tour heads to Texas next week for the first major of the year.
