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.”
