Sunday Five Things at Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic

Aditi, who had rounds of 68-69 on first two days, is however 13 shots behind the runaway leader, Sei Young Kim, whose rounds of 63-65-64 put her at a record 24-under 192.

Kim added yet another birdie, closed with a 7-under 65 and wound up her historic week Sunday in Wisconsin at 31 under for a nine-shot victory.

Kim shot her previous record-equaling effort of 27 under at the 2016 Founders Cup, drawing her level with her childhood hero Sorenstam. She had 31 birdies and one eagle, another record for most sub-par holes in a tournament.

The only blemish for Kim all week at Thornberry Creek at Oneida was a double bogey in the second round Friday. "So I had a lot of birdie opportunities and I putted really well today".

Kim began the final round with an eight-shot lead and played magnificent golf all day. She was streets ahead of the field as she won by nine shots with Carlota Ciganda in second spot at 22-under while Anna Nordqvist, Emma Talley and Amy Yang were tied for third at 20-under. 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.

"Sei Young was playing unbelievably", said Ciganda, who notched her best result since 2016.

"I really feel, like, unreal", Kim said.

Leading by eight to eight to start the day, Kim signalled her intentions with a birdie at the first.

"First hole, my second shot was nearly a tap-in birdie, so (I) started really solid", said Kim, who is seeking a seventh LPGA title.

The Australian veteran hit 16 of 18 greens in regulation but needed 33 putts and made just two birdies.

England's route to the semi-finals at the 2018 World Cup
Belgium finally showed on the pitch why so many rate them so highly and have tipped them to do well in this tournament. We had the chance to win the final of the Euros, but we missed a wonderful thing and we must not let this chance pass.

Kim, 25, authored the greatest four round stretch in the history of the LPGA. "I used to watch Annika on television and it was my dream to play on the LPGA with her".

The affable Kim is the 17th different player to win during the 2018 season and is the sixth player from Korea to win. "When someone plays that good, she deserves to win". "This gives me a lot of confidence, but I still need to keep working hard because next week is a new tournament".

Torres made seven birdies against just one bogey for her 66 on Sunday.

Kim won for the first time this year and joined Henderson as the only players on the LPGA Tour with at least one victory in each of the last four seasons.
