11 July, 2018, 22:17
South Korea's Sei Young Kim shattered the LPGA's scoring record Sunday while winning the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic in Oneida, Wis., by nine strokes.
Kim closed with a seven-under-par 65 for a nine-shot victory to break the record she had shared with Annika Sorenstam. The previous LPGA 72-hole record was 27 under par, set by Annika Sorenstam at the 2001 Standard Register Ping and tied by Kim herself at the 2016 JTBC Founders Cup. Els set the PGA Tour's 72-hole score record of 31 under par at the 2003 Mercedes Championships.
"After the Founders Cup, I got new goals", Kim said.
"I thought about, 'How do you handle nerves today?' Then I set my goals, just kept relaxed - except the last three holes, I couldn't control the nerves because it was nearly done but I finished really good". "I'm very happy. A dream come true".
Even with an eight shot lead entering the round, Kim never let her foot off the gas pedal.
Defending champion Katherine Kirk, who has been unable to follow up on her 10-under 62 from Thursday, is one of five players at 14 under. For the tournament, she never recorded a bogey, with her only misstep being a double bogey at No. 17 on Friday. Her 32 holes of birdie or better were yet another record - improving on the 30 sub-par holes in a tournament achieved previously by three players. "She had a heck of a week and I'm really excited for her".
England face Croatia for a place in the final Few more problems for the Croatian side to sort out, they are sweating on the fitness of their full-back Sime Vrsaljko. England have not been in the semi-finals of the World Cup since 1990 when they lost on penalties to then West Germany.
Kim Sei-young reads the line of her putt during the final round of the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic at Thornberry Creek at Oneida, Wisconsin on Sunday. "When someone plays that good, she deserves to win".
In case there was any question mark about Kim's control of this event she soon put it to bed with an eagle at her 3rd hole and an outward nine of 33 before all but putting the result of the event to rest with a homeward nine of 31. "She just kept the foot down".
South Korean Amy Yang was Kim's closest pursuer after a 67 for 200. Kim earned her full time status card on the LPGA Tour after finishing tied for ninth at the 2014 LPGA Qualifying Tournament.
With a win, Kim took home a total prize of $300,000 and became the 61st player on the LPGA Tour history to exceed $5 million in prize money. She couldn't keep pace, however, and made a double bogey on the par-5 15th by hitting one shot in the water and another in a hazard.
The win was the seventh of Kim's LPGA career, her first since she captured the Lorena Ochoa Match Play in May 2017.
