Four Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) players (Stacy Lewis, Nicole Smith, Beatriz Recari and Cristie Kerr) are now proud owners of brand new 2014 Kia Cadenza premium sedans. These women were honored during the Second Annual Kia Performance Awards in Naples, Florida for their achievements both on and off the golf course during the 2013 LPGA season.

During the event, we caught up with Percy Vaughn, Executive Director of Regional Operations, Kia Motors America for Kia’s southern region. Vaughn was on site to hand out the awards to the following players.

Stacy Lewis earned her second-consecutive Kia Drive to the Top award, which is given to the player with the most top-10 finishes of the season. LPGA Tour rookie Nicole Smith won the Kia Power Drive, which is awarded to the player with the longest driving average in 2013. Beatriz Recari earned the Kia Most Compelling Performance, awarded to a player with an exceptional performance as chosen by golf fans who vote on and the LPGA Facebook page. Cristie Kerr was the winner of the Kia Community Assist award, which recognizes a player who makes exceptional contributions to charity organizations or community programs—Kerr’s charity event, Birdies for Breast Cancer, has raised more than $2.5 million for cancer research.

“The Kia Performance Awards are an integral part of the relationship between Kia and the LPGA as they recognize outstanding achievements by some of the best golfers in the world,” said Michael Sprague, Executive Vice President, marketing & communications, Kia Motors America.
