Sei Young Kim retains KPMG Women’s PGA Championship lead after 3rd round

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. — Sei Young Kim had another excellent outing at KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, shooting a 3-under 67 Saturday to hold the lead after three rounds at Aronimink.

LeRae hit the Wicked Stepsister but was unable to get a pinfall because the referee was out of the ring after catching the blowback when LeRae countered a moonsault from Shirai. Johnny Gargano ran down from backstage in an attempt to make an inconsequential count.

The stunned challenger clearly lost her focus as she was shortly the recipient of a Spanish fly and moonsault as Shirai maintained her spot atop the women’s division.
