Champion: Birdie Kim chipped in from the sand on No. 18 to make birdie and finish at 3-over-par 287 for the victory.

Trailing: Amateurs Morgan Pressel (75) and Brittany Lang (71) finished two shots back at 289.

Shot of the Day: Like anyone needs to ask: Kim’s tournament-winner from a greenside bunker about 30 yards from the hole

Sorenstam Watch: Annika Sorenstam made seven bogeys en route to a round of 77 that left her 12-over par, tied for 23rd.

Amateur Hour: Michelle Wie shot 82 to fall out of contention early and end up tied with Sorenstam.

Key Statistic: Kim’s chip was just the fourth birdie of the tournament on the 459-yard 18th hole.

Noteworthy: Because two amateurs tied for second and can’t accept prize money, Lorie Kane and Natalie Gulbis, who finished tied for fourth, got the second- and third-place money, a windfall of $132,697.

Quoteworthy: “It was like, “I can’t believe that actually just happened.”‘ -Morgan Pressel, on her reaction to Kim’s sand shot going in.
