Kim Wins In Sensational Style!
South Korea’s Sei Young Kim (pictured) once again demonstrated that she’s a player with that extra something that she can draw on when faced with a serious challenge.
She hade a tough time in round four of the LPGA Mediheal Championship and was forced to surrender her lead. Right up towards the end of the final round, she looked like she was going to have to struggle to be in with a chance. Struggle she did and like the champion that she is, she fought her way into a three-way play-off.
Kim together with England’s Bronte Law and South Korean Jeong Eun Lee were tied at 7-under par, forcing the sudden death play-off.
All that Kim needed was one hole, the finishing Par 5 on the 18th hole and she birdied while the other two were eliminated.
What a win! Another big one for the raging Asian Tsunami on the LPGA Tour.Read More
