In-Kyung Kim Opens Her Bag
In-Kyung Kim fired an 8-under 64 Sunday to win the $1.1 million Lorena Ochoa Invitational Presented by Banamex and Corona Light at Guadalajara Country Club in Mexico by three shots. Kim outlasted second-round leader Suzann Pettersen, who closed with a 68 to finish 16-under, and Karine Icher, who holed out for eagle from the fairway on the last hole to finish 15-under. With this win, the third of Kim's career, she'll become the ninth player this year to cross the $1 million mark, making it her second $1 million season in four years on Tour.
"I don't know how to really take this all in," she said. "But it's been a great week. I mean, on the golf course, I played very good golf all week. The putts pretty much kept dropping today…. Yesterday it was missing this way and that way, and today, it started going in, the next started going in, and another one, and I'm like, wow."
Kim seized the lead when Pettersen made double bogey on the fourth hole, and she never let go. She made four straight birdies on holes six-nine to stretch the lead to four. She atoned for a minor hiccup on 17, where she made bogey to drop her lead back to two, with a birdie on 18.
