Yul Lin Hwang is one of the lesser known KLPGA golfers that to me seems to stand out a little from the crowd. She's one of those gals who usually has an interesting outfit from Elle Golf, her clothing sponsor, and her name itself is somewhat unusual. This week she started the SK tournament with a strong 66, good for solo 2nd after the first round.
Another interesting player who has started showing up on leaderboards is 22-year-old Se Ro Mi Kim.
Kim is unique not only for having one of the few four syllable Korean names, but also for having an identical twin sister, Ah Ro Mi, who is also a professional golfer. They are the first identical twins in KLPGA history. The Sisters began playing golf in 4th grade, and both joined the Dream Tour in 2018.
Ah Ro Mi has caddied for her twin sister from time to time, like last week @ the KB Star Championship:
Se Ro Mi Kim is a rookie this year on the KLPGA, having finally made it off the Dream Tour after two years. Interestingly, her sister was the first to win professionally when she claimed a title on the Dream Tour in 2018, and Ah Ro Mi played on the KLPGA last year, only to lose her card at the end of the season. But then Se Ro Mi earned her card, and this year it is she carrying the mantle on tour for the twins! At least, I think that's what happened; it's hard to tell with those two!
Se Ro Mi is currently 92nd on the money list and will need to step it up to maintain her KLPGA status for next year. Would be great to see both twins make the big tour together! And if they do, I hope they mess with people's minds by always dressing identically at every event. Good luck to them!
