I.K. Kim Wins the Ladies European Masters

In-Kyung Kim - better known these days simply as I.K. - is a winner again on the Ladies European Tour. Kim scorched the golf course for a 63 in the final round to run away with the 2016 edition of the Ladies European Masters.

The LEM has been played seven times since 2000, and Kim is the first golfer to win it twice. She previously won in 2014.

Kim carded eight birdies - four on the front nine, four on the back nine - against zero bogies in her final round of 63. She finished at 17-under 271. That was five strokes better than the runner-up, Belen Mozo, and six ahead of the golfers tied for third place, Sandra Gal and Camilla Lennarth.

This is I.K.'s third overall victory on the LET; in addition to her previous win in the LEM, she also won the 2009 Dubai Ladies Masters. Kim also has three wins on the LPGA Tour, but none since 2010.

But recently on social media, she started spelling it "Hyunju Yoo." And we figure she knows better than anyone how to translate the Korean spelling of her name into an English spelling.
