Hi, my name is Nuny Kham-One Khamken, and I am from West Jordan, UT. I'm originally from Laos. My family came to America when I was 2 years old. I currently live in West Jordan, UT, and have two daughters and a son. My oldest daughter is currently in the Air Force in Japan.

I previously worked for UPS in the Field Support Group for 25 years. However, I am currently semi-retired due to business reduction.

I picked up golf in 2008, when I was 35, and played competitively in 2010. I love the sport so much that it has become a passion. I then joined the Ladies League at Stonebridge GC to improve my game and to meet and make new friends. I won the Club Championship there for 7 years and have also had 3 holes-in-one.

After turning 50 in June, I won my very first Utah Senior Women's Amateur Championship tournament at Wasatch Lake GC. Along with the win, I received an exemption into the 2024 LPGA Senior Championship at Copper Rock GC.

I love golf and enjoy playing competitively. Although I may be a little quiet at times, I do love to travel to compete in different states, as well as meeting and making new friends along the way.
