Lydia Ko wins LPGA CME Group Tour Championship, record payday of $2 million

NAPLES – Tears welled up in Lydia Ko’s eyes on the 18th Green Sunday as she wrapped up a monumental comeback season. Moments later, she wrapped her arms around a tall, slim man in black and khaki who was wiping tears. This was the first time Jun Chung saw his bride-to-be personally win. Most of their golf together is casual, with dinner on the line or a fun challenge.

Chung, son of Ted Chung, Vice Chairman and CEO, Hyundai Card, Hyundai Commercial, works in Hyundai’s finance division and is based in San Francisco. Because of the pandemic, they were pen pals for six months before they first met. Shortly thereafter, Ko broke a three-year victory drought in Hawaii. Friends called him their lucky charm. However, his presence in her life brought much more than happiness.
