Flawless victory from Sei Young Kim at the LOTTE Championship

South Korean rookie and already winner in this 2015 season, Sei Young Kim, won her second LPGA title on the least expected way. Moments after sinking a sneaky par putt on 17 to stay even with Inbee Park, Kim shot her drive into the water. The 22-year needed to make par at her 72nd hole to force a playoff. Kim chipped her 4th shot from the green’s fringe and hole out her par to force the playoff against her countrywomen Park.

Park and Kim went back to the 18th tee. Rookie girl went on to tee off first; this time she choose to hit an iron shot. Sei Young Kim then shot an approach that barely got over the water again, then bounced twice and dropped into the hole for eagle. Inbee had nothing else to than to smile and greet her opponent in what will be on of the most memorable playoffs on the LPGA.
