Golf: Recari edges Kim for second Tour win

Spain's Beatriz Recari rolled in a birdie on her second playoff hole to edge Kim In-kyung and capture the Kia Classic Sunday for her second career LPGA Tour victory. The 25-year-old Recari, who started playing golf at age 11, earned her only previous LPGA Tour title at the 2010 CVS LPGA Challenge. "It was hard down the stretch," Recari said. "I had a birdie on 16, then after that this (18th) green was tough. "I really, really have to thank my family and my coach. It's really special to get my second win."
