Hyemin Kim Gives Her Very First Winner’s Check ( $15,000 in total) to Girls Golf
Women who play golf professionally dedicate their lives to competing at the highest level, and it could take years for them to win their first big tournament and payout, if at all. For Symetra Tour player Hyemin Kim, donating her entire winners check to support the dreams of young girl golfers made her victory even sweeter. She donated the entirety of her $15,000 winner’s check to LPGA USGA Girls Golf. When asked about her gift, Hyemin said, “I just want to help the next generation of girls and my hope is that this donation helps bring more girls to golf that don’t have the means on their own.” Watch our interview with Hyemin Kim here.
