Kim Still singing’ in the rain

Christina Kim won’t be going home empty-handed from her trip Down Under.

The popular US golfer has three LPGA wins to her name, and three Solheim Cup victories, but the highlight of two weeks in Australia this year won’t be golfing related.

She finished T81 at the Australian Open in Adelaide and was T32 here at Bonville after the third round. Kim’s three rounds have been 74, 71, 74.

“It was a challenge out there, we had a lot of humidity, and a bit of rain that came down on my last hole (18th).

“The wind swirls through the channels up and down on the fairways of this golf course, so it provides an incredible challenge.

“The greens have definitely got me this week, so hopefully tomorrow I can go out there and get ‘em.”

Kim’s golf has not been near the standard the world has come to expect, but there has also been the welcome distraction of the incredible Coffs Coast.

“I actually love being here in Oz, but this year my love has been unrequited,” the 33-year-old Floridian said.

“This is my first visit to Coffs Harbour, and it’s been absolutely breath-taking.

“My first day here I’m like ‘Are we playing golf here in Jurassic World?’ It’s so cool, I saw a koala yesterday, a wallaby in the wild.

“It’s been an incredible week, it really has.”

Although she flies out to the US tomorrow, her sight-seeing isn’t done.

“I’m hoping to check out the Big Banana before I leave though.”
