Kim donates $100,000 to tornado victims

During her interviews after winning the SemGroup Championship Sunday, Mi Hyun Kim mentioned that she was probably more nervous about the tornado watch than the playoff. Yesterday, she donated nearly half of her winnings from that tournament to the United Way Greensburg Disaster Fund to aid the victims of a tornado that struck that small Kansas town last Friday.

"I never expected to win," the 30-year-old Kim said. "I thought a long hitter would win. Last week was a surprise for me because I am not a long hitter. God gave it to me as a special present. He used me to help those people."

God bless Mi Hyun Kim.
