KLPGA: 2010 Lotte Mart Open Rd 3

Round three started with Hyun Joo Lee holding a slim one shot lead over Hee Kyung Seo, Soo Jin Yang and rookie Yoon Kyung Hur.  But as the round developed, a surprising new player vaulted over those players into contention.  The golfer was Bo Bae Kim.  Kim started the day at 3 under, tied for fifth.  But a 4 under par 32 on the front nine moved her to 7 under and the lead.  She wound up finishing with a 67 and posted an 8 under total that would be tough to beat.

Hyun Joo Lee and Soo Jin Yang both struggled.  Lee was even par on the front nine, but made three bogies early on the back to fall out of contention.  Yang was four over on the front nine and fell right out of the top ten.  But rookie Hur and superstar Seo were in contention to the bitter end.

Both were a shot behind Kim when they reached the par 5 18th hole.  Amazingly, it was Hur who made the birdie to tie Kim; Seo made par and had to settle for solo third.

Hee Kyung Seo

So the playoff was between two players each seeking their first win on tour.  They were both doubtless nervous, but didn’t show it, both making birdies on the par 5 18th, the first playoff hole.  But the second time through, Bo Bae again made a birdie, while Hur settled for a par.  So congratulations to Bo Bae Kim on her win!!!

Soo Young Moon also had a nice move, going from a tie for 15th to solo fourth thanks to a final round 68.  Bo Mi Lee, last week’s winner, launched a spectacular charge – thanks to her final round 65 – to vault from well back to a tie for 8th.

  1. […] 2 (3:45 am): Nice 1st win for Bo Bae Kim upon a KLPGA. Final-round 67 as well as a span of birdies in a 2-hole playoff is not as well […]
