Here’s a better pic of Birdie’s sand shot on 18 (taken by Jack Dempsey of AP, via SJ Mercury). As the San Jose Mercury reports, Birdie is not usually a good bunker player:

“Actually, I am not a real good bunker player,” said Kim, who entered the Open at just 32.6 percent in sand saves this season. “Also, I changed my sand wedge about two weeks ago. That club is not used to me yet. So I had a lot of misses this week with bunker shots. Finally, I made it.”

Kim was asked to guess how many tries it might take her to duplicate that shot if she went out to that bunker and just kept dropping balls in the same spot. She laughed.

“I think more than 50,” she said.

My take: how about 100? But, hey, it only matters when it counts.
