Korean Dominance at Haikou
Kim Hae-rym captured the SGF 67 World Ladies Championship with SBS on Sunday when the Korean beat compatriot Bae Seon-woo on the second hole of a play-off under wet conditions in Hainan Island. With Kim (70) and Bae (69) deadlocked at 14-under 205 through 54 holes on the
Mission Hills Haikou Blackstone Course, both players made par at the first extra hole, the 371-yard first. At the next, the veteran made a birdie four at the 524-yard par-five for her third career title as Bae missed an eight-foot putt. Going into the extra session, Kim said she felt confident as she had played in play-offs twice last year in a season where she earned her first two professional wins. On the first extra hole, however, her drive went into the lava rocks prevalent around the Blackstone Course. After finding her ball she had to take a penalty for an unplayable lie and then proceeded to get up-and-down for par.
