Former Maui resident Kim takes Public Links championship

By Associated Press

POSTED:



NESHANIC STATION, N.J. » Kyung Kim, who grew up on Maui, 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, who now lives in Chandler, Ariz., 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 20 mph wind, Kim had 10 birdies in 34 holes.

"I didn't know I had 10 birdies," said Kim. "That's so much."

The 16-year-old Ramsey, from Milledgeville, Ga., had eight birdies.

"Kyung, obviously, played better than me, but I think the difference was she made more putts than I did," Ramsey said.

The tournament is limited to players who don't hold privileges at any course that doesn't extend playing privileges to the general public.
