"On behalf of Hana Financial Group, I'm very pleased with signing these two players and being a part of their development on and off the course. Both have shown not only good performance on the course, but they are great individuals and role models off the course." said Paul Park, a deputy general manager of sports marketing at Hana Financial Group.
Their leadership resulted in raising a considerable amount of money to donate to Smile Microcredit Foundation, and led players like Cristie Kerr, Paula Creamer, Michelle Wie, and Suzann Pettersen to participate in the donation campaign during the LPGA Hana Bank Championship in 2010.
Hana Financial Group signed a three-year contract with LPGA and IMG last year to host the LPGA Hana Bank Championship, which will be held October 6-9, 2011 at SKY72 golf course.
