Meet Woo Ri Chun. The 19-year-old recently came through KLPGA Q-School and will be on tour next year.
She has an interesting pedigree. Her dad is Kyu Jung Chun, a former KPGA pro, and her mom is Yoo Rim Noh, a KLPGA pro on the tour in the 80s and 90s.
Chun is nearly 5'10" tall and hits the ball well over 260 on average; people are already comparing her to Sung Hyun Park, who coincidentally is her main role model. Should be interesting to see what she can do next year!
Woo Ri Chun has signed a three year deal with Nefs for an undisclosed total. Chun, 19 years old, will be a rookie on the KLPGA next year. As mentioned above, she is a long bomber who considers Sung Hyun Park her hero. She is also 176 cm tall, which makes her 1 cm taller than In Gee Chun, who is no relation.
Golf Digest Korea has a profile this month of 19-year-old rookie Da Been Heo. Based on the text, it sounds like she finished 49th at Q-School, which will probably put her on the Dream Tour to start the year. But she just turned pro in October, so she has some time to work her way up to the big leagues.
