Kim breaks win wait

In-Kyung Kim claimed her first win in six years as she triumphed at the Reignwood LPGA Classic on Sunday.

The 28-year-old fired an eagle and a birdie on the two late par 5s at Pine Valley in Beijing to eventually sign for a final round of 66.

Kim's last victory came at the 2010 Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Mexico, with her victory topping a clean sweep in the top three for South Korea, finishing a stroke ahead of third-round leader Mi Jung Hur and 2014 winner Mirim Lee.

It also gives her a flying start to the start of the LPGA Tour's six-event Asian Swing.

Speaking afterwards, she admitted her decision to focus on her own game rather than those around her paid dividends in China.

"I just wanted to play my game. I can't control anyone else's game," Kim said. "I feel good that I was able to play how I wanted to play.

"Even the result, I really try not to focus on result so much. Then I wouldn't be able to perform the way I wanted. I chose to play my game and kind of paid off."
