Bouncing Back WOMEN'S PROFESSIONAL GOLF Sei Young Kim overcame a rough start to win May's LPGA MEDIHEAL Championship at Lake Merced Golf Club, outlasting Bronte Law and Jeongeun Lee with a birdie on the first hole of a playoff. Three strokes ahead entering the final round, Kim opened with a double-bogey and bogey and dropped another stroke on No. 8. The 26-year-old South Korean came back with a birdie on the 15th to regain a share of the lead, dropped back with a bogey on the 17th but birdied the 18th for a 3-over 75 and a spot in the playoff at 7-under 281. "It was really tough," said Kim, who won for the eight time on the LPGA Tour. "It was really frustrating, because the beginning holes, I try to keep going and focus. ... That taught me a lot."
