Young Kim shatters LPGA scoring records

Lydia Ko fades late at Thornberry Creek, Sei Young Kim notches record victory

Lydia Ko has plummeted down the leaderboard in a disappointing final day of the LPGA Tour's Thornberry Creek Classic notable for the record-breaking feats of Korea's Sei Young Kim.

With Kim entering the final round holding an eight-shot lead, the only question was whether she would continue to tear up Thornberry Creek's Legends Championship Course to overtake Sorenstam's record.

Kim shot her previous record-equaling effort of 27 under at the 2016 Founders Cup, drawing her level with her childhood hero Sorenstam.

The only blemish for Kim all week at Thornberry Creek at Oneida was a double bogey in the second round Friday. "I thought about how do you handle nerves today".

"Yeah, I'm very happy".

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.

The second-place finish went to Carlota Ciganda, who ended nine strokes adrift of Kim, while Anna Nordqvist, Emma Talley and Amy Yang tied for third.

Defending champion Katherine Kirk (71) ended in a tie for 20th place at 15 under par.

Her performances had thousands of followers on various accounts with her name on them, ranging from 12,000 to 66,000 followers. But more importantly, she is a fearless great warrior against the barbaric regime who took a nation in hostage.

"Front nine, I just couldn't get one to drop, and back nine, hit lots of good putts and, again, nothing happened", Kirk said.

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 hit 43 of 56 fairways and 67 of 72 greens in regulation.

Kim, 25, played the finest four round stretch in the history of the LPGA and shot 63-65-64-65.

DONEGAL, Ireland (AP) - Russell Knox of Scotland holed almost identical putts of 40 feet on the 18th hole, first to get into a playoff, and then to beat Ryan Fox and win the Irish Open for his first European Tour victory.

"I really feel, like, unreal", Kim said. Making two of them from nearly identical positions, I mean, that's a bit of a bonus. "It's unbelievable the way she (Sei Young) played". That victory had propelled her to eighth in the world, although she had slipped to 26th coming into this week. She has yet to win a major title. In addition, the 17-under marks the first time in her career, amateur, college or professional, that she has finished in double figures.

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

During her first season on the LPGA Tour, Kim won three tournaments to earn the Tour's Rookie of the Year award.
