Kim ends near decade long drought with Mexico win

MEXICO CITY - Christina Kim snapped one of the longest winless droughts on the LPGA Tour with a wire-to-wire victory at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational on Sunday.

The 30-year-old American claimed her first victory in almost a decade as she made a par on the second playoff hole to beat China's Feng Shanshan at the Club de Mexico Golf course.

Kim finished regulation tied with Feng at 15-under-par 273. Kim fired a final-round, one-under 71, while Feng posted a six-under 66.

Feng used four birdies on the back nine to catch Kim. But after both players made par at the first playoff hole, Feng stumbled to a bogey on the second playoff hole, giving Kim her first title since the 2005 Tournament of Champions.

The next closest golfer was world number one Park In-bee, who shot a four-under 68 to finish alone in third at 11-under 277. Brittany Lincicome (69) and Ryu So-Yeon (71) ended tied for fourth at nine-under 279.

Defending champion Lexi Thompson shot a one-over 73 to finish tied for 15th at three-under 285.
