DALY CITY, Calif. (AP) Known for an attacking style that has led to two of three lowest 72-hole scores in LPGA Tour history, Sei Young Kim had to adapt to win the LPGA MEDIHEAL Championship at tight and tricky Lake Merced Golf Club.

Already playing through a back injury that forced her to alter her swing, the 26-year-old South Korean overcame a rough start Sunday in cold and windy conditions, then fended off Bronte Law and Jeongeun Lee6 with a birdie on the first extra hole. She won for the eighth time on the LPGA Tour, improving to 4-0 in playoffs.

"I think that this win very hardest to win in my life, ever," Kim said. "Last seven wins, I played really well final round. But today I wasn't good final round. So I think that playing style, little tough to win. It means a lot."
