Sei Young Kim - 2015 LOTTE Championship Champion
Sei Young Kim holed out her second shot, an 8-iron from 154 yards, on the first playoff hole to defeat Rolex Rankings No. 3 Inbee Park and claim her second-career LPGA victory and a $270,000 winner's check at the LOTTE Championship Presented by HERSHEY.
"I don’t know what happened," Kim said with a huge smile in the media center following her round. “There was 140 meters, so I think about between 7 or 8. And so I chose 8 normal, and it was good choice."
Playing first, Kim sent her ball skyward and it took two hops before nestling in the bottom of the cup. Kim seemed to be in disbelief before finally throwing her hands
in the air and high fiving her caddie. When Park was unable to match the feat, Kim got to take a champion’s walk to 18 to retrieve her ball from the bottom of the cup.
