Sei Young Kim has yet to splurge on the $1.5 million she won last year in the richest prize offered at a tournament in women’s golf.

“I’m just saving up for the future,” she said.

Winning the first major of her career just might be priceless. A 10-time LPGA Tour winner, the 27-year-old South Korean has the unwanted title of winningest active player without a major championship.

Kim went on another streaky run of birdies Saturday at Aronimink, shooting a 3-under 67 to hold the lead and positioning herself to put that label to rest at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.

Alabama men, Arkansas women hold Blessings leads entering final round

We’re two rounds through the Blessings Collegiate Invitational, and here’s where things stand entering Wednesday’s final round in Fayetteville, Arkansas:

Men’s team leader: Alabama. The Tide have reentered the chat. Four players shot under par Tuesday as Alabama fired a 6-under 282 to take a two-shot lead over first-round leader Tennessee. Sophomore Tyler Lipscomb led the way with a 3-under 69 that pushed him into a share of 15th individual. Sophomore Thomas Ponder and senior Wilson Furr, the U.S. Amateur medalist two months ago, sit T-4 and T-9, respectively. But the big story this week has been senior Davis Shore, who has missed much of the past two seasons because of a hip injury but fired one of three 1-under 71s for Alabama in Round 2. Shore, who is T-20, had surgery in Summer 2019, missed nearly six months of action and has almost fallen outside the top 2,000

Amy Jones leads England Women to 4-0 series lead over West Indies

Amy Jones ended a lean run of form with a sparkling 55 from 37 balls as England Women inched closer to a clean sweep of the West Indies in their Vitality Twenty20 series with a 44-run win at Derby’s Incora Ground.

Jones’ first fifty in 13 international innings, plus captain Heather Knight’s 42, helped England recover from 45 for three to post 166 for six after they had won the toss and batted first for the fourth time in as many matches.

If England’s highest score of the series was not daunting enough, the Windies lost free-scoring Deandra Dottin to the third ball of their reply, and although the tourists did not throw in the towel they were once more heavily beaten under lights to fall 4-0 down ahead of Wednesday’s finale.

Sarah Glenn took her wickets tally to seven in four matches with two for 15, while Katherine Brunt
