Kim wins US Women’s Open on debut


World number 94 A-Lim Kim claimed her first major title with a stunning final round at the US Women’s Open.

Kim, 25, started five strokes behind leader Hinako Shibuno but closed with three straight birdies in a four-under 67 to finish three under overall.

The South Korean was making her US Women’s Open debut and this is only her third professional victory.

World number one Ko Jin-young and American Amy Olson tied for second, one shot back, with Japan’s Shibuno fourth.

The tournament was completed on Monday after rain forced play to be abandoned on Sunday.
