South Korean golfer Jin Young Ko received a pair of cowboy boots for winning the Volunteers of America Classic on Sunday.
She won with a 2-under 69. She closed with seven straight pars for a one-shot victory over Matilda Castren of Finland at Old American Golf Club.
“I was thinking these boots is good size for me,” said Ko. “So yeah, I just bought a house and then I want to get new trophy because my old trophies is in Korea but this new one is special.”
In four of her previous five starts on the LPGA Tour this year, Ko failed to finish in the top 10. On Sunday, however, she finished at 16-under 268 for her eighth career LPGA victory a week after dropping to No. 2 in the world.
“I was thinking I had a lot of pressure with the No. 1 ranking,” said Ko “But I made it this week. I’m very happy. I was thinking I couldn’t win this week because like Matilda, she played really well today and yesterday, too.”
