((HT: Golfer's World/Golf Channel/LPGA))We've all done this before on our cow pasture courses we play on...Now, we've seen it in a major...IK Kim had the chance to clinch the Dinah Shore with the following putt at 18...Sun Young Yoo would win the tourney on the first playoff hole for her first major title. Kim was asked about the putt: "Sometimes things happen, and it's kind of tough because it's Nabisco, and hopefully I'll have better or more chances."
BEST OF MAXIM
Sun Young Yoo won the Kraft Nabisco Championship with an 18-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole Sunday, earning her first major title after I.K. Kim missed a 1-foot putt on the final hole of regulation.
Yoo won the LPGA Tour's first major of the season with steady play down the stretch, but she got to make the traditional leap into Poppie's Pond only after Kim'...
On Sunday afternoon at the Kraft Nabisco Championship women's golf tournament, I.K. Kim had a one-shot lead at the 18th hole of the final round. All Kim had to do was make a one-foot putt, and everyone, including the announcers, assumed that it was only a formality that she would make the putt and win her first major championship.
Yet, somehow, inexplicably, Kim blew it....
