Langley's Sue Kim took top spot over the weekend at the 2015 Florida's Natural Charity Classic golf tournament.

Sue Kim seized the lead midway through the final round and never looked back.

Kim, who is from Langley and golfed out of Redwoods, made a 25-foot birdie putt on the ninth hole to win Florida’s Natural Charity Classic at the Lake Wales Country Club.

The 24-year-old, who now lives in Florida, finished the tournament at five-under par with a 211 to win the Symetra Professional Golf event over the weekend in Lake Wales, Fla.

She pocketed $18,750 in prize money.

“It feels great,” Kim said on the Tour website.

“I’ve had some great finishes at the Florida’s Natural Charity Classic and it feels great to finally win it.”

Kim beat out sisters Brittany and Brooke Henderson, who finished tied for second at two-under par.

Kim was three shots off the lead heading into Sunday’s final round, and after making a bogey on the third hole, she carded four birdies over the next six holes to make the turn at five-under, one shot up on Brittany Henderson.

“It was a great tournament for me from the first day forward,” Kim said.

She was the lone golfer to shoot below par on all three days.

This was her second win on the Symetra Tour. She spent 2014 on the LPGA Tour, but struggled, missing the cut in 11 of 19 events.
