There was a bit of a finally feeling for Hyo Joo Kim on Sunday at The Ascendent LPGA. The 28-year-old from South Korea has had an impressive 2023 season, with eight top-10 finishes in 16 starts. But it wasn’t until signing for a Sunday 69 at Old American Golf Club in The Colony, Texas, that Kim was finally able to close out a win, the sixth of her career.

Fueled by an opening-round 64, Kim finished with a 13-under 271 total, four shots clear of runners-up Bianca Pagdanganan and Atthaya Thitikul and allowing her to become the third wire-to-wire winner on the LPGA in 2023.

With the victory, Kim earned her the $270,000 first-place prize money payout. It also allowed her to pass the $2 million mark in prize money for the season, the first time she’s done that in her nine years on the LPGA Tour. The most Kim has made in a single season on Tour is $1,533,497 in 2022.

The overall purse this week in Texas was $1.8 million. Here’s the prize money payout for every golfer who made the cut.
