  • Sei Young Kim cruised through three rounds of the LPGA Tour's Thornberry Classic 2018 this week

SEI YOUNG KIM destroyed the LPGA Tour scoring record when she won the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic with a staggering total of 257 - 31 under par.

Ko started the final day at Thornberry Creek in Wisconsin, if not with high hopes of catching runaway leader Kim, certainly with ambitions of a high-end finish to continue her promising recent form. Kim had a four-day score of 27-under at the 2016 JTBC Founders Cup, while Sorenstam posted that same score at the 2001 Standard Register Ping in Phoenix.

"This is a dream come true", said Kim, the world number 26, whose only blemish was a double bogey on the par three 17th hole on Friday.

Including her final round of 63 at this event previous 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.

"I was thinking even not playing this tournament, going home and rest, so I'm happy the way I played", Ciganda said.

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. Kim is eight shots ahead of second-placed fellow Korean Amy Yang (67-66-67), who is 13-under and T-second.

"In a word, phenomenal", said defending champion Katherine Kirk, who finished 15 under and tied for 20th. "Then I set my goals, just kept relaxed - except the last three holes I couldn't control the nerves because it was nearly done, but I finished really good".

Those getting the chance to watch Kim and Yang in tomorrow's final round either live or via the television coverage should take note of two of the best swings on the LPGA Tour.

Following a successful first year, Kim notched two additional titles in the 2016 season, and in 2017, she added another win - the Citibanamex Lorena Ochoa Match Play in Mexico City.

Though Kim has earned seven trophies in her four LPGA Tour seasons, she has yet to win a major tournament.

Kim had rounds of 63, 65, 64 and 65 as she made no race of a relentless march to her seventh career victory, and first of 2018. "When someone plays that good, she deserves to win".

"I really feel, like, unreal", Kim said. Sam Saunders lost out with bogeys on the 16th and 17th holes to miss by one.

"I just ask to somebody but that's not right answer, so I getting to the YouTube, how to make the mind stronger".

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.
