A glimpse into Jimmy Choo x Malbon Golf collaboration at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club 2024

Grateful to be a part of this moment, shooting one of the world’s hottest brand partnerships right now, #JimmyChoo X #MalbonGolf. The intimate affair was hosted at Australia’s #1 golf course, the Royal Melbourne Golf Club, by Kathy Gaurnat, with special guests Todd Woodbridge, Natasha Woodbridge, Rebecca Harding, and Elliot Gaurnat.

What I love about the Jimmy Choo x Malbon partnership is that it gives golf a renewed perspective on luxury, comfort, and style. Honestly, everything a golf fashion-conscious person would WANT. This collaboration merges the timeless elegance of Jimmy Choo with the innovative and playful spirit of Malbon Golf, resulting in a collection that’s both sophisticated and sporty.

The event itself was a perfect reflection of the collection’s ethos. Set against the stunning backdrop of the Royal Melbourne Golf Club, attendees were treated to an exclusive preview of the limited-edition pieces. From sleek golf shoes adorned with signature Jimmy Choo embellishments to stylish accessories that elevate any golf ensemble, the collection effortlessly combines high fashion with functional design.

After a delightful lunch, guests were treated to an hour-long golf lesson with RMGC senior teaching professionals, Ryan McCarthy and Richard Blake. This session provided invaluable golf swing insights and tips, making the day not only about fashion but also about learning the game we all love.

One of the highlights was witnessing how seamlessly the products integrate into both on-course performance and off-course lifestyle. Whether you’re hitting the fairways or enjoying a post-round social gathering, the Jimmy Choo x Malbon collection ensures you do so with unmatched style and confidence.

However, be quick because the last time I checked, most golf accessories and shoe sizes are gone!!!! 😭 The buzz around this collaboration is palpable, and it’s no surprise that these coveted items are flying off the shelves.

In essence, the Jimmy Choo x Malbon partnership is a game-changer for golf enthusiasts who refuse to compromise on style. It brings a fresh, luxurious twist to golf fashion, making every round of golf not just a sport, but a fashion statement.

Anyway, until next post… happy golfing!

AS SEEN IN: Women’s Golf Magazine 2024

Who would’ve thought I’d GOLF, let alone venture into GOLF PHOTOGRAPHY? I’m still learning the ropes but honestly it’s the best mental and physical sport I’ve come to embrace. It’s truly become a part of who I am! If you have been following me for while, I want to extend my gratitude for being a part of my golfing journey and for perhaps inspiring you to give it a try!

I’m grateful for the mini feature in WOMEN’S GOLF MAGAZINE, a publication dedicated to women into golf where I lean into my experience and learnings and share my top 5 tips for shooting golf tournaments. And, as always, a big thank you to Nikon Australia Pty Ltd and Havas Red AU for recognising and embracing my newfound passion. Their support instils in me the confidence to continue pushing out of my comfort zone and, in my own way, inspiring women to pursue sports photography.

Enjoy reading and exploring a few of my unpublished works.

Our Future Stars: The Athena Golf Event at Peninsula Kingswood 2024

Thrilled to be back covering and showcasing our future generation of Australian Women Golfers over the weekend at Peninsula Kingswood Golf Club. Their high energy, technicality and camaraderie was a real pleasure to watch, especially when they keep sinking their 9 foot putts, dang!⛳️

Congratulations to our mega star, Kelsey Bennett who defeated Amy Chu for winning the overall Athena Golf event. It was painfully close but it was spectacular to see Kelsey getting the job done after three attempts. As the saying goes, “three times the charm” ✨ Also congratulations to Cassie Porter for winning Saturday’s Athena Golf Day 1 Combine Challenge ✨

Enjoy the highlights which were captured for the PGA of Australia (WPGA Tour) shot on the Nikon Z6 camera.

Adrian Meronk, Ashleigh Buhai & Kipp Popert are the winners of ISPN Handa Australian Open Golf Championship 2022

If you have been paying attention to my journey on Instagram (@heykarenwoo), you probably noticed that I’ve taken a serious liking to learning the game of golf. Golf has been the biggest highlight of this year, so I couldn’t contain my excitement when Golf Australia invited me to the ISPN Handa Australian Open Golf Championship 2022 event.

This Australian Open event was one for the history books where Men, Women and All Abilities golfers play in the same golf tournament.

The atmosphere was electrifying, the crowd turned out in droves, and I am enthralled by each player’s immaculate golf swing technique, style and form. So much to learn from these Pros!

Although I was rooting for the Aussies to take out the title, I have to say, our international guests Adrian Meronk (Poland), Ashleigh Buhai (South Africa) & Kipp Popert (England) were unbelievably talented and highly deserving of taking out the ISPN Handa Australian Open Championship 2022.

So without a du, here is a running photo commentary of the action that unfolded today starting at hole 8 with Adam Scott, Min Woo Lee and Adrian Meronk. I also followed Grace Kim, Min Jee Lee, Ashleigh Buhai, Hannah Green, Jiyai Shin and Jenny Shin at the final 18th hold.

Thank you Golf Australia for all the incredible support and for giving me the honour to be a special part of Australian golfing history!
