Sue Kim leaves Denver after one semester

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Add Sue Kim’s name to the list of college freshmen who lasted only one semester. Kim, 18, left Denver in December and moved with her parents to La Quinta, Calif.

“I couldn’t adjust to the whole college thing,” said Kim, who plans to compete on the Canadian National Team this summer as an amateur before going to LPGA Q-School.

Kim played in all four tournaments for the Pioneers. Her best finish was T-12 at the Ron Moore Intercollegiate. Kim was a two-time junior Canadian Order of Merit winner and was 26th in the Golfweek/Junior Rankings when she signed with Denver.

The Pioneers finished the fall ranked 18th. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
