South Korean Kim A Lim birdied her last three openings to dig out from a deficit and win the U.S. Ladies’ Open by one stroke and guarantee her first significant title in Houston on Monday.
Kim began the last cycle five strokes back and was following pioneer Amy Olson by two shots through 15 openings when she got shoot on a bug morning to complete the last round with a 67.
Kim tied the record for the greatest rebound in the competition. The last round of the occasion, which was rescheduled from June to December because of the COVID-19 pandemic, was deferred by a day because of awful climate.
“I’m truly happy,” said the 25-year-old Kim, who was making her competition debut.
“Through COVID-19 we had a lot of difficulties, but I’m glad we had the U.S. Women’s Open in Houston. It was a great win.”
Kim said she knew she was following heading into the last three openings and said she realized she would need to venture up her game to acquire the prize and the $1 million in prize cash.
“I’d been peering toward the leaderboard all through the round and I knew the number of shots I was back,” she said.
“That is likely the motivation behind why I attempted to hit more forceful, attempted to more assault the pins.”
The result was a sad for Olson, who was grieving the death of her dad in-law, who kicked the bucket out of the blue on Saturday.
“Coming out toward the beginning of today I had no clue about what’s in store,” said Olson, who completed her round of 72 with a birdie.
“It was only a unique little something I felt extremely feeble and powerless the last couple days, and likely a similar went today on the green.
“I truly accept the Lord just brought me through. It just causes you to acknowledge how much greater life is than golf. In any case, I’m satisfied with my completion by and large.”
It was the third top 10 completion at a significant for Olson, who is as yet looking for her first success on the LPGA Tour.
World number one Ko Jin-youthful of South Korea birdied two of her last three openings to complete tied for second close by Olson.
“I had an extraordinary round today,” she said.
“I had a couple missed putts, but I finished good.”
South Korea is a significant power at the competition, having delivered 10 of the last 16 champs.
Japan’s Hinako Shibuno and American Megan Khang gathered together the best five at the Champions Golf Club, which had no observers because of the pandemic.
