  • Sei Young Kim at the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic

Sei Young Kim completed an historic win at the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic on Sunday, smashing several tour records on her way to a nine-shot victory.

After a blemish-free third round, the 25-year-old followed up with another faultless day, mixing 11 pars with seven birdies.

Kim shattered the 72-hole scoring record, which she previously owned along with Annika Sorenstam, who totaled a 27-under in 2001. But after the major tournament, I realised, 'OK, I can do that.' If I imagine, it comes true.

Three players tied for third at -20 including Amy Yang who played with her fellow South Korean in the final group. Hee Young Park won a playoff after she and Angela Stanford each finished at 258 in the Manulife Classic in Canada in 2013 (par 71), while Karen Stupples shot 258 at the Welch's/Fry's Championship in Arizona in 2004 (par 70).

"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.

South Korean golfer Kim Sei-young broke several Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) records as she won her seventh career LPGA title. "It's unbelievable the way she (Sei Young) played". "She had a heck of a week and I'm really excited for her". During the final round, Kim showed outstanding accuracy with her iron shots, with a Greens in Regulation percentage of 94.4. She obviously knows how to win. The answer was yes, her tee shot on the par 3, 17th on Friday which led to a double bogey, the only hole she played above par in four rounds. She had just one sub-par hole all tournament. Her second shot put her on the green but her birdie try was never close and she had to make a tough putt coming back to save par. Sam Saunders lost out with bogeys on the 16th and 17th holes to miss by one.

Fox, who shot a 68, earned one of three spots to the British Open in two weeks at Carnoustie.

Kim posted an eight-under 64 on Saturday to get to 24-under and will have an eight-shot lead with 18 holes left on Sunday. But she dropped two shots at the par-five 15th when she hit one ball in the water and another into a hazard.

Knox closed with a 6-under 66 to set the clubhouse target at 14-under par. "I did today, so I'm very happy with another good round".

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.
