Kimberly Kim Leads Jr. Girls Championship

Hawaiian Kimberly Kim set a lot of records on Monday in a round deemed by one golf official as "amazing."

The 15 year old shot a 62 at the national championship at Tacoma Country and Golf Club. Her closest competitor is six strokes behind her. Kim had 10 birdies and no bogeys in perfectly played golf. The score tied the lowest score by a US Junior Girls player. She set a new record, by three strokes, for a Tacoma women's competitive course. Kim tied the men's casual course record. Kim recorded her best score to date (by 3 strokes).

Bob Holister, Overlake Golf and Country Club general manager and former manager of Tacoma, walked all 18 holes of Kim's record as a rules official. He said, "I don't remember a round of golf this good in my life. It was incredble. I've never seen a man or woman do that."

Cheyenne Woods, Tiger Woods' 17 year old neice, shot a 77 and is in danger of not making the cut.
