Golfer Ha-Neul Kim

There are two famous Koreans named Ha-Neul Kim. One is an actress, one is a golfer. It's easy to confuse photos of the two, because the golfer is just as beautiful as the actress. The golfer Ha-Neul Kim is also very, very good at her job. In fact, she just won again. Kim won the MBN KYJ Golf Ladies Open on the KLPGA Tour, which concluded August 25. It was her first win of 2013, and the eighth of her career on the KLPGA. But it's Kim's second overall victory of the year; she also teamed with Inbee Park to win the Mission Hills World Ladies Championship in China. Kim's win at the MBN KJY was particularly impressive because she shot a final-round 63 to earn it.
