Kyung Kim wins U.S. amateur event

NESHANIC STATION, New Jersey - Kyung Kim, a Korean-American, won the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links on Saturday, beating Ashlan Ramsey 4 and 2 in the 36-hole final at Neshanic Valley.

The 18-year-old Kim, from Chandler, Arizona, took a 2-up lead with a birdie on the 32nd hole, won the 33rd with another birdie and took the 34th with a par to close out the match.

“I just can’t believe it,” said Kim, who will be a freshman at Southern California this fall.

“It was a long week, but to be finally done and to win, it’s pretty amazing.”

Fighting a wind speed of 20 miles per hour, Kim had 10 birdies in 34 holes.

“I didn’t know I had 10 birdies,” said Kim. “That’s so much.”
