Kimberly Kim decides she's going
to Denver University

FROM THE GOLFWEEK.COM WEBSITE
By BETH ANN BALDRY, Senior Staff Writer
Kimberly Kim has made up her mind. The 2006 US Womens Amateur champion called Denver (University) coach Sammie Chergo on March 5 and gave a verbal commitment.
I really liked the team a lot, said Kim, pictured above. I liked all the courses we saw on the visit, too.
Kim, 17, previously had committed to Oklahoma State, but changed her mind when head coach Laura Matthews left the programme.
Kim was set to join Jane Rah and Sue Kim in Stillwater, Oklahoma, this fall. Now both Sue and Kimberly will join the Pioneers.
Kims college decision was a hot topic on the Golfweek discussion boards, with more than 15,000 page views and 150 postings. With so many rumours flying around, Kim even got on the boards herself to try and set the record straight.
I felt like I got insulted a lot over not being able to decide (on college), Kim said. Isnt it a tough decision? Im glad its over and I can look forward to (high school) graduation.
