Aditi Ashok Tied-26th at Thornberry LPGA Classic

Sei Young Kim at the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic

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.

Sei Young Kim shot an 8-under-par 64 in the third round of Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic on Saturday to tie Annika Sorenstam's 54-hole record of 24 under and take a commanding eight-stroke lead.

She can now overhaul Sorenstam's 72-hole record of 27-under par, set at the Standard Register Ping in 2001 in Phoenix, if she shoots a 68 or better.

Kim actually has a 27 under par total for 72 holes which she recorded when winning the JTBC Founders Cup in 2016. A birdie on 15th saw her still at 13-under, but a double bogey on par-3 17th dropped her down before she finished with a birdie on 18th.

"I set my goal today for a bogey-free round", Kim was quoted by saying to LPGA.com.

"I made a really good up and down on 17 and then to stick it close on 18 to give myself an opportunity was great", said Law. No one, and I mean no one ever dreamed there would be this many birdies but the Oneida Nation is a generous bunch and there was nothing wrong with witnessing golf history this week, re-written by one Sei Young Kim.

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 on a course that was a par 71, while Karen Stupples shot 258 at the Welch's/Fry's Championship in Arizona in 2004 but that course was a par 70. "Even if I break (the record), I'll keep (making) the challenges higher". During the final round, Kim showed outstanding accuracy with her iron shots, with a Greens in Regulation percentage of 94.4.

Liverpool have opened talks with Stoke City over a potential transfer for Xherdan Shaqiri , a source has confirmed to ESPN FC. The winger, who scored seven goals for the newly-relegated Potters last season, has a release clause of £13.5m.

"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.

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.

I caught up with Talley after her career best finish on tour.

"I had the double-bogey on 17".

Torres made seven birdies against just one bogey for her 66 on Sunday. Making two of them from nearly identical positions, I mean, that's a bit of a bonus.

Kim and Brooke Henderson are the only players to have registered LPGA wins in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
