Danielle Kang is a certified golf pro, and her celebratory meal seals that deal, pho sho.

On Sunday, 24-year-old Kang, ranked 43rd in the world, won the LPGA Championship, her first ever senior golfing title.

She also managed to cinch the title for most badass at eating pho. Also, the title for most badass use of a championship trophy. Ok, just give her all the badassery titles while we’re at it.


Yep, Kang decided to break in her trophy by breaking bread—well, noodles.

Along with this not-at-all-intimidating hunk of metal, Kang won $525,000. Which is worth, ya know, somewhere in the ballpark of tens of thousands of bowls of pho—maybe even hundreds if she gets her money’s worth.

Man, just look at how deep that trophy basin is.


So much glorious space for all that steaming pho.
