SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - In-Kyung Kim finished with a flourish, sinking birdies on two of her final three holes to capture the State Farm Classic by a stroke over Hall of Famer Se Ri Pak.

Kim fired a 7-under 65 on Sunday to finish at 17 under, giving the South Korean her second Tour victory along with a big momentum boost heading into the LPGA Championship next week at Bulle Rock. In the process, she denied Pak (66) her first win in two years.

Hee-Won Han (65), Jee Young Lee (66) and Angela Stanford (67) finished two shots behind Kim.

Third-round co-leader Cristie Kerr (70) finished at 14 under along with Eun-Hee Ji (63), Paula Creamer (65), Suzann Pettersen (68), Ai Miyazato (68), Amy Hung (68) and Jiyai Shin (70).
