Weekly Reader Poll: What Would Make You Quit Golf?

I.K. Kim has come a long way since her heartbreaking missed putt at the 2012 Kraft Nabisco.
Would you be capable of recovering from missing a 14-inch putt that would have given you victory in the biggest golf competition of your life?

That’s what South Korean In-Kyung Kim did when she captured the Women’s British Open in Scotland on Sunday to claim her first major championship and vanquish the painful memories of the stunningly short putt she missed that would have handed her victory at the 2012 Kraft Nabisco Championship.

I.K. Kim poses with the Women's British Open trophy.

Kim admitted after her breakthrough win at Kingsbarns that she's had to lean on the support of many people in the five years since.

It took her four-and-a-half years to win again but her ascent in 2017 has been profound, not only becoming a major champion but the only three-time winner so far this LPGA Tour season.

Not bad after a horror event that may have left some contemplating walking away from the game.
