Biography

Kang Ji-min (Korean: 강지민, born 28 January 1980) is a South Korean professional golfer who plays primarily on the LPGA Tour.

Kang had a distinguished amateur career including finishing runner-up in 1999 U.S. Women's Amateur. She attended Arizona State University. She turned professional in 2002.

Kang played on the Futures Tour from 2002 to 2004, winning three times. In 2004, she won the Player of the Year honors and the money list title to earn her LPGA Tour card for 2005.

Kang won the 2005 LPGA Corning Classic, which included a hole-in-one at the short 15th hole in the final round.

In 2013, Kang was forced to take time off from golf after her immune system shut down and played the 2014 on the LPGA Tour and 2015 seasons on the Symetra Tour. She returned to Arizona State for her degree and earned her LPGA teaching certification in 2018. Kang qualified for the 2019 Women's PGA Championship via a qualifying tournament reserved for LPGA teaching and club professionals and finished T78, the only one to make the cut.
