SWISS TALENT TO BLOOM IN AMERICA

“I am Kim Métraux, 23-year-old coming from Switzerland. I have been selected to represent my country on several occasions since in 2012 at the most important international championships. I turned Pro in May 2018 after a very successful amateur career, including winning the team silver and the individual bronze medals at the 2016 World Amateur Team Championship in Mexico.
Representing Switzerland at such a high-end level was already very special, but being able to do so with my younger sister Morgane (see the other side of this release) also in the team was unforgettable. I have also been medalist at the European Team Championships, achieved fifteen Top 10s in my European amateur career and collected ten Top 10s in NCAA Division I Women’s Collegiate Tournaments.
These achievements, despite starting to play golf quite late at 12- year-old, signalled that it was time to move onto the next level and the Pro ranks. So, in June 2018, I have joined the Ladies European Access Series (LETAS), playing just six tournaments out of thirteen in the full schedule. However, my results were good enough to rank 30th on the Order of Merit for my rookie season, thanks to two Top 5 finishes. This shows – and I am glad to point it – that I am already on the right track to collect many more.
I have qualified for the 2019 Symetra Tour in 2019, and now also for the Ladies European Tour thanks to a good result at the 2019 LET Tour School on last December. With my sister Morgane, I’m now looking to getting my LPGA playing right for 2020″.
