Guadulajara, Mexico (AHN) – In-Kyung Kim won for the first time this season on the LPGA Tour Sunday at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational.

She’s taking her $220,000 first place money and giving it away.

Kim announced that she’s donating half of her winner’s check to the Lorena Ochoa Foundation and she’ll give the rest to a charity in the United States, perhaps in her hometown of San Diego.

“I went to Lorena’s party and I saw the kids and how she is helping kids with her foundation. I decided if I win, I will be giving all the money to people who need help,” Kim said of her generous decision.

Kim shot a final round 64 and beat Suzann Pettersen by three shots.

This was her third career win on the LPGA Tour.
