Sei Young Kim completed a virtuoso four-day performance at the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic with a Sunday 7-under, 65 to win by nine shots.

Including her final round of 63 at this event past year, Kim has now played her last 72 holes at Thornberry Creek in 33 under par and her 7th LPGA Tour title now appears but a formality.

Kim won the 2016 Founders Cup at 27 under, while Sorenstam won the 2001 Standard Register Ping at 27 under, the tournament where the Swede shot 59. 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.

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 the LPGA record in relation to par. After that, I wanted to... really wanted the course record.

"I'm really happy with a dream come true", she said. 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.

AUSTRALIA'S Katherine Kirk, the overnight leader, battled her way to a one-under 71 in the second round to be tied for third at the halfway point of the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic in Wisconsin.

"I had the double-bogey on 17. She had a heck of a week and I'm really excited for her".

Kirk's welcome back to Green Bay was spectacular with that 62 on Thursday but said she just never was able to keep it going.

She was four strokes in front of China's Liu Yu, who posted a career-best score of nine-under par 63 for a total of 132.

Kiwi Lydia Ko has finished tied 23rd at 14-under, after a one-over final round. During the final round, Kim showed outstanding accuracy with her iron shots, with a Greens in Regulation percentage of 94.4. She has yet to win a major title. Sorenstam won by two over Se Ri Pak when she shot her 27 under at Moon Valley at a tournament that no longer exists. "She just kept the foot down". But she dropped two shots at the par-five 15th when she hit one ball in the water and another into a hazard.

"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.

Kim is the 17th different player to win during the 2018 season and is the sixth player from Korea to win.
