Kim Sei-young breaks LPGA 72 hole record

Incredible 72-hole score of -31...

Wowzers. Just wowzers. -31. South Korea's Kim Sei-young broke the LPGA Tour's 72-hole record as she won the Thornberry Creek Classic with a 31-under-par score.

The 25-year-old carded a seven-under-par 65 in the final round, following consecutive rounds of 63, 65 and 64.

"This is a dream come true," said Kim, the world number 26, whose only hiccup was a double-bogey 5 at the 17th on Friday.


It breaks the previous record of -27 set by Sweden's Annika Sorenstam in 2011 and then equalled by Kim in 2016.

Kim's nearest challenger in Wisconsin was Spain's Carlota Ciganda at a relatively tame -22.

Sweden's Anna Nordqvist, American Emma Talley and Korean Amy Yang were tied for third on 20 under.


There were 31 birdies in Kim's round, also a LPGA record for 72 holes.

England's Bronte Law achieved a best ever finish of sixth as she carded a final round 67 to finish on 18 under.

Compatriot Georgia Hall was a shot back on 17 under alongside Jodi Ewart Shadoff, while Charley Hull was on 13 under.
