Sei Young Kim completed an historic win at the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic on Sunday, smashing several tour records on her way to a nine-shot victory.
Sei Young Kim shot an 8-under-par 64 in the third round of Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic on Saturday to tie Annika Sorenstam's 54-hole record of 24 under and take a commanding eight-stroke lead. Kim won the 2016 Founders Cup at 27 under, while Sorenstam won the 2001 Standard Register Ping at 27 under, the tournament where the Swede shot 59. Kim's performance included 31 birdies, one eagle and - proving she is human after all - one double bogey on the 17th in the second round.
Kim teed off on the 10th hole on the par-72 course in Oneida, Wisconsin, and birdied her first four holes. "So I had a lot of birdie opportunities and I putted really well today".
"When I came they told me that you have to shot a low score here, so I tried my best, tried to fire at all the pins and make as many putts as I could", said Ciganda.
The result never looked in doubt as Kim began Sunday's round with an eight-shot lead, and it proved to be the case as she tore up the course for the fourth successive round.
Carlota Ciganda finished in second at 22-under while Anna Nordqvist, Emma Talley and Amy Yang tied for third at 20-under.
Kirk's welcome back to Green Bay was spectacular with that 62 on Thursday but said she just never was able to keep it going. In the men's PGA Tour, Jordan Spieth and Ernie Els are the only two golfers to finish a 72-hole event at 30-under or better.
