Ji wins US Women's Open

Posted July 12, 2009

BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) - Eun Hee Ji (un hee jee) of South Korea made a 20-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole, finishing off an even-par 71 to win the U.S. Women's Open.

Ji recovered from a double-bogey at the 10th hole and finished at even-par 284 Sunday, outlasting struggling third-round leader Cristie Kerr.

Kerr struggled from the outset and shot a 4-over 75 for a 2-over 286 in her failed bid for a second Women's Open title in three years.

Candie Kung of Taiwan continued a charge up the leaderboard she started in the third round when she vaulted from 37th to a tie for fifth. She finished before the pairing of Ji and Kerr and appeared headed for a playoff after a 2-under 69 left her at 1-over 285.
But Ji made the putt and Kung settled for second.
