Ahn Sun-ju, last year's JLPGA money-list leader, belatedly revealed Sunday that she officially tied the knot late last year with a former fellow golfer, Kim Sung-ho. Speaking to local media at the Japan Golf Fair in Tokyo alongside her husband, the 28-year-old golfer said she and Kim had agreed she would retire from golf at age 30, at which time the couple will have a formal wedding ceremony. The pair only registered their marriage in Korea.
Ahn had her most successful season last year since she debuted on the JLPGA in 2010. She was named Player of the Year after setting a JLPGA record for fewest strokes in a Tour event with 70.1324, collecting the most wins with five, and topping the money list with 153.08 million yen. This year, Kim will serve as her coach.
