2009 World Archery Championships - Women's Individual Recurve
The women's individual recurve competition at the 2009 World Archery Championships took place from 3–9 September 2009 in Ulsan, South Korea. 97 archers took part in the qualification round on 3 September. As there were fewer than 128 entrants, all archers qualified for the 7-round knockout round on 6 September which was drawn according to their qualification round scores. The semi-finals and finals then took place on 9 September.
Like the men's competition, the final was an all-Korean affair, with third seed Joo Hyun-Jung defeating first seeds Kwak Ye-Ji by just one point. It marked the last World Archery Championships in which 12 arrow shoot-offs were used for the individual recurve competition elimination rounds; from 2011 the Olympic Round scoring system was adopted.
The top 31 qualifiers received byes to the second round.
