Nayeon, who also goes by the nickname Laura, is a 27-year-old from Seoul. In addition to the Ladies European Tour Access Series (LETAS), she also has experience playing on the Japan LPGA and Japan Step-Up tours. Eum turned pro in 2013, which was three years before she graduated from university in Korea.

Eum just won the Anna Nordqvist Vasteras Open, a tournament on the Nordic Golf Tour co-sanctioned by the LETAS. It was her first professional win.

Eum carded rounds of 66, 70 and 72. Her winning total was 8-under-par 208. "I never thought this day will actually come," she wrote on Instagram, "but it thankfully did and I don't know how to express my feelings with the trophy in my hands."

The Anna Nordqvist Vasteras Open was her second LETAS start of 2021. She finished ninth in her previous start in the GolfUppsala Open, also in Sweden, one week earlier. In 2020, Neyeon made five starts on the LETAS with two Top 10 finishes.
