Hyo Joo Kim is an amateur who began making big noise with her talent as a 14 year old in 2009.
That year, she played brilliantly at two KLPGA Major championships. At the Hite Cup, she was one of the leaders after the first round, and was even fifth as late as the start of the fourth round. At that point she stumbled somewhat, but still compiled an impressive T-13th result. At the KB Star Tour Grand Final, she was again in the top five after the first round, but ended up tied for 34th.
In 2010, she led Korea to a victory at the Queen Sirikit Cup, an important team event. She also won individual honors thanks to a final round 65. She was 8 shots ahead of the next player in the field. Later in the year, she finished tied for third at the Rush & Cash Charity Classic on the KLPGA tour.
Despite her quality amateur results, she was not one of the three golfers chosen to represent Korea at the 2010 Asian Games. That squad won the team gold and individual gold without her, showing just how deep they are.
Hyo Joo continued to be a top junior golfer over the next two seasons. In July of 2010, she won the R&A Junior Open Girls golf title in Fife, Scotland, by three shots; Korean New Zealander Cecilia Cho was third.
In 2011, she was again on Korea's squad for the Queen Sirikit Cup. She finished second, one shot out of the gold medal spot, but Korea won the team gold by four shots. Later in the year, she achieved a major coup by claiming the Callaway Junior World Golf Championship, winning the 15-17 year old division by five shots. She was not able to qualify for the US Women's Amateur later that summer, however, only achieving alternate status.
She had some good results on the KLPGA tour in 2011. In June, she finished tied for 5th at the Woori Investment & Securities Ladies Championship. She led the Korean Women's Open after the first and second round, but a poor weekend reduced her to 15th. She also had a 9th at the Lotte Mart Women's Open.
