The South Korean star finished on 11-under par at Hoakalei Country Club in Hawaii to land a fifth LPGA Tour victory.

She also lost a play-off with Ariya Jutanugarn in the 2018 US Women’s Open.
Kim won the 2012 Swinging Skirts TLPGA Open on the LPGA of Taiwan and 2012 Suntory Ladies Open on the LPGA Tour of Japan as an amateur before graduating to the LPGA Tour of Korea.
In her home tour, Kim won the 2012 Lotte Mart Women’s Open as an amateur, the Hyundai China Ladies Open in 2012 and the Kia Motors Korea Women’s Open, Kumho Tire Ladies Open, Hanwha Finance Classic, Hite Jinro Championship, KB Financial Star Championship and Hyundai China Ladies Open in 2014.
