Gina Kim is a sophomore at Duke University from Chapel Hill who plays on the Duke women’s golf team.
As a freshman, she was instrumental in the Blue Devils’ run to their seventh national championship, as she shot a birdie on hole 18 of the NCAA Division I Semifinals against Arizona to send her team to the finals.
Her 2019 opening round card of 5-under 66 is the lowest score for an amateur in U.S. Women’s Open history. She also competed in the first inaugural Augusta National Women’s Amateur, which hosts 72 of the top amateur female golfers from around the world at the same course as The Masters.
