Kim Sei-young wins Thornberry crown in historic style

Lydia Ko moved to third with a 66 in her third round on the LPGA Tour

Sei Young Kim has the great Annika Sorenstam's LPGA Tour tournament scoring record within reach after turning the Thornberry Creek Classic into a procession.

But Aditi's total of 12-under was 19 shots behind Sei Young Kim, whose final round seven-under 65 saw her post a record total of 31-under 257. 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.

Kim had just one blemish in her four rounds, a second round double bogey that took little shine off a score that included 31 birdies. The only mistake she made in the tournament was a double bogey on the 17th hole in the second round. "This is a dream come true".

Spain's Carlotta Ciganda came in second at 22 under after shooting a 64, while Anna Nordqvist, Emma Talley and Amy Yang tied for third place on 20 under.

When defending champion Katherine Kirk opened the 2nd annual Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic with a mind blowing 10 under par 62, the question on everyone's mind was how low can these women go?

"Sei Young was playing unbelievably", said Ciganda, who notched her best result since 2016. After that, I wanted to... really wanted the course record. 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.

Rescue begins to pull remaining boys, coach from Thai cave
The most touching note came from one whose name was not clear: "I'm doing fine, but the air is a little cold, but don't worry". The four boys who were rescued Sunday had to travel about 4 km (2 1/2 miles) with oxygen tanks .

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. During the final round, Kim showed outstanding accuracy with her iron shots, with a Greens in Regulation percentage of 94.4.

The Thornberry first-place check of $300,000 pushed Kim's career earnings past $5 million, making her the 61st player to reach that plateau in LPGA history. "This gives me a lot of confidence, but I still need to keep working hard because next week is a new tournament".

"Well, after last week I was disappointed because I prepared a lot with my caddie for the major". That victory had propelled her to eighth in the world, although she had slipped to 26th coming into this week. Sam Saunders lost out with bogeys on the 16th and 17th holes to miss by one.

No one had a chance Sunday.

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.
