Beatriz Recari Wins 2013 Kia Classic In Playoff With In-Kyung Kim

Beatriz Recari, 2013 Kia Classic winner (click to enlarge)

Beatriz Recari won the 2013 Kia Classic on the 2nd hole of a sudden death playoff with In-Kyung Kim. The leader after 36 and 54 holes, Recari held on after a 1-over final round left her in a tie with Inky at 9-under overall. While Kim had a 1-under round, she could have won this event were it not for a stretch of 3 straight bogeys on 11, 12 and 13. She also had a costly bogey on the 18th hole. However, so did Beatriz…and Pornanong Phatlum, too, who was in contention for the win. Honestly, I thought the hole position was a little tricked up as I thought there was a quirky little break at the hole that really doesn’t reward the read. Be that as it may, both Recari and Inky played well enough to win. The separation was a sensational putt through the fringe on the 2nd playoff hole by Beatriz. Maybe the speed needed to get through the fringe took the quirky breaks around the hole out of the equation. It was also great because it was a birdie putt, which were scarce Sunday on 18. Both Beatriz and Inky bogeyed not only 18 in regulation but also on the first hole of the playoff. With the win, Beatriz notches her second LPGA career win.
