    SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Northwestern incoming freshman Hannah Kim (Chula Vista, Calif./Otay Ranch) had a unique opportunity on Jan. 23, as she hit the ceremonial first tee shot at Torrey Pines Golf Course to officially kick off the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open (Jan. 23-26).

    Kim, along with 10-year old Jonas Appel, represented The San Diego Junior Golf Association and Pro Kids/First Tee of San Diego. Some of the top golfers on the PGA tour, including Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, competed at this year's Farmers Insurance Open, which was won by Scott Stallings.

    The incoming Northwestern freshman is ranked No. 9 nationally and third in the state of California by Junior Golf Scoreboard. Fellow incoming freshman Sarah Cho (San Diego, Calif./Torrey Pines) will also join head coach Emily Fletcher's squad for the 2014-15 season. Both incoming freshmen recently placed in the top 25 at the Arizona Silver Belle Championship in early January.

    The 2013-14 Northwestern squad tees off its spring season in Rio Mar, Puerto Rico, playing at the Lady Puerto Rico Classic from Feb. 16-18.
