Sunrider Teams Up with Rising Golf Star Jun U Ree
Korean professional golfer shoots for success with Sunrider’s high-performance products.
Jun U Ree, age 23, a female professional golfer sponsored by Sunrider Korea and Korea Real Estate Investment & Trust Co. Ltd, tied for second place at the 2020 SK Networks Seokyung Ladies Classic, a major event of the KLPGA (Korea Ladies Professional Golf Association) tour. The tournament was held October 29–November 1, 2020, at the prestigious Pinx Golf Club, in Seogwipo City, Jeju Island, Korea.
Jun U Ree shot a double bogie on the second hole (par 3) during the final round, but she regained her focus and finished strong by shooting 4 birdies on the subsequent holes. By finishing second, Jun U Ree raised her overall prize-money (approximately 130 million won) ranking to 31st place.
By rising in rank, Jun U Ree has secured the right to participate in next season’s KLPGA tour without having to qualify in a seed match. And even though she didn’t win first place, she ended the tournament with a bright smile and renewed confidence.
Jun U Ree’s golf prowess is hard to express in words. Harnessing the power of her 176-cm tall, athletic physique and guided by her laser-like focus, she routinely hits accurate shots over 260 meters with a swing that's the envy of other tour players.
Described by her mother as a “Sunrider fanatic,” Jun U Ree said, “Sunrider® products are a must-have in my professional life. Managing my condition is paramount, so it’s essential I take Sunrider® products with me wherever I go.”
