Kim sets LPGA mark with 31-under total at Thornberry

Ko started the final day at Thornberry Creek in Wisconsin, if not with high hopes of catching runaway leader Kim, certainly with ambitions of a high-end finish to continue her promising recent form.

She can now overhaul Sorenstam's 72-hole record of 27-under par, set at the Standard Register Ping in 2001 in Phoenix, if she shoots a 68 or better. Her only blemish all week came in round two, when she made a double bogey at the 17th.

But the 25-year-old knew setting out on Sunday that she was within striking distance of the record, giving herself a goal of playing the final round without a bogey. I was very patient.

"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.

Kim began the final round with an 8 shot lead and wound up winning by nine in collecting the unique Sky Woman trophy. Hee Young Park won a playoff after she and Angela Stanford each finished at 258 in the Manulife Classic in Canada in 2013 on a course that was a par 71, while Karen Stupples shot 258 at the Welch's/Fry's Championship in Arizona in 2004 but that course was a par 70. "She just kept the foot down". The 32 holes under par is another record, breaking the mark of 30 set by Brittany Lincicome, Gerina Pillar and Lexi Thompson at the 2017 Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic.

Though Kim has earned seven trophies in her four LPGA Tour seasons, she has yet to win a major tournament.

Trump has chosen his Supreme Court nominee, source says
President Donald Trump has nominated Brett Kavanaugh to be the next justice to join the Supreme Court of the United States. He is now a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit and previously served in both Bush administrations.

The New Zealander took 33 putts for the round and hit only five of 14 fairways and 14 greens in regulation. After that, I wanted to - really wanted (the LPGA) record.

The Thornberry winner's cheque of US$300,000 pushed Kim's career earnings past US$5 million, making her the 61st player to reach that plateau in LPGA history. "I used to watch Annika on television and it was my dream to play on the LPGA with her".

Kim won for the first time this year and joined Brooke Henderson as the only players on the LPGA Tour with at least one victory in each of theist four seasons. "When someone plays that good, she deserves to win".

But she dropped shots on eighth and ninth before a stretch of pars.

The affable Kim is the 17th different player to win during the 2018 season and is the sixth player from Korea to win. Amy Yang is a distant second at 16 under after shooting a 5-under 67.

England's Bronte Law finished alone in 6th at -18 which included a birdie on the 18th.
