Kim’s killer instinct earns her the British Open

Kim In-kyung held her nerve and was ruthless on Sunday as she claimed a first major title by winning the Women's British Open.

South Korea’s Kim took a six-shot lead into the final round but a course record-equalling 64 from England's Jodi Ewart Shadoff took her to within two shots of the summit.

However, Kim maintained her composure and posted a workmanlike 71 to win by two clear shots.

She was extremely patient on Sunday, her 71 contained only two birdies, one bogey and 15 pars.

The victory will be especially welcomed after Kim missed a one-foot putt to win the Ana Inspiration fve years ago.
