Kim finished three strokes clear of second-placed Stacy Lewis to captured her second LPGA Tour title in 13 career starts.
Not only did she have to outdo her fellow competitors, but the teenager was also forced overcome her fear of bees as she was required to play a shot on the 10th from beneath a tree where a beehive was hovering above her head.
After overcoming her fears Kim pushed on in style with birdies on the 11th, 12th, 13th and 15th holes.
Kim ended the day with a 5-under-par 67 after hitting a birdie on the par-4 18th.
Lewis was right on Kim's heels after matching the 19-year-old's birdies on the 12th, 13th and 15th holes and she cut Kim's lead down to one stroke with a birdie on the 16th.
But, all of Lewis' hard work was undone on the 18th hole when she slumped to a bogey.
Meanwhile, world number one Lydia Ko finished six strokes behind Kim as she recorded her third consecutive round of 69.
Ko's form has cooled slightly since she won the Women's Australian Open and the Ladies European Tour's New Zealand Women's Open in consecutive weeks.
