Kim Wins in Symetra Tour’s Return to Northern California
The Symetra Tour, which is the stepping stone to the LPGA Tour, made its return to Northern California this past weekend with the POC Med Golf Classic on at Windsor Golf Club.
Winning her first Symetra Tour title was South Korea’s Hyemin Kim, who captured the rain-shortened event with a total of 7-under 137.
Among Kim’s prized, along with a check for $15,000, was an engraved bottle of Kendall Jackson wine.
“I am so happy. I think I need to empty that whole bottle,” Kim said. “That would be a great celebration for me.”
The last time the Symetra Tour had been in the region was in 2001, when Beth Bauer won the California FUTURES Classic in Patterson at Diablo Grande.
