Sirak Sei Young A Major Champion | LPGA

The thing about history is that it never gets old. Once recorded, achievements live forever. Sei Young Kim arrived at Aronimink GC as a footnote in the legacy of the LPGA but left as a boldface name in the chapter on greatness after winning the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.

 

No longer will Kim be known as the best player without an LPGA major. Now, the only modifier that matters before her name are these words that will be spoken the next time she’s introduced on the first tee and at every event after:

 

“From Seoul, South Korea, winner of the 2020 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, Sei Young Kim.”

 

She is – now and forever – a major champion.

 

Kim’s near-flawless performance as she mastered Aronimink in a tournament-record 14-under-par 266, five strokes better than Inbee Park, was not so much validation of an already brilliant career, or even the culmination

Cha Eun Woo, Moon Ga Young, And Hwang In Yeob’s Upcoming Drama “True Beauty” Holds First Script Reading

On October 12, tvN’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama “True Beauty” released photos from their first script reading.

“True Beauty” is a self-esteem building romantic comedy surrounding Joo Kyung (Moon Ga Young), who uses makeup to battle insecurities about her appearance. She meets Su Ho (ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo), who has wounds of his own, and they grow as they share their secrets with one another.

The drama is based on a popular webtoon of the same name and will feature Moon Ga Young, Cha Eun Woo, and Hwang In Yeob. It will be directed by producer Kim Sang Hyub, who was recognized for his work on “Extraordinary You.”

These members were in attendance at the script reading, along with Park Yoo Na, Park Ho San, Jang Hye Jin, Im Se Mi, Kim Min Ki, Park Hyun Jung, Oh Eui Sik, and Kim Byung Choon. Even though it was only their first

Sei Young Kim wins Women’s PGA Championship

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. — Sei Young Kim lined up for the putt on the 18th hole that would seal her first LPGA major championship and somehow missed by inches. One member of the gallery — in this instance, roughly 75 officials, photographers and course stragglers — even said “she made it.”

Not quite.

The 27-year-old South Korean laughed off the rare misstep, tapped in the winner and shed the unwelcome label of winningest golfer on the tour without a major. Kim raised her arms “Rocky” style, hugged her caddie and, at last, was a major champion.

Kim chewed up Aronimink Golf Club in record style, tying a tournament record by shooting 7-under-par 63 on Sunday to win the Women’s PGA Championship. She was five strokes better than runner-up Inbee Park.

“I’m actually really hiding my tears at the moment,” Kim said as she stood next to the trophy.

Sei Young Kim wins Women’s PGA Championship, her first major

Kim chewed up Aronimink Golf Club in record style, shooting a 7-under-par 63 on Sunday to win the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. She was five strokes better than runner-up Inbee Park, never seriously challenged on the arduous course in suburban Philadelphia.

“I’m actually really hiding my tears at the moment,” she said, standing next to the trophy.

Her dominance was in plain sight. She finished at 14-under 266. Her final-round 63 tied a tournament record, and her 266 set the championship scoring record.

Kim, who earned her 11th LPGA victory, got the championship push rolling when she matched a tournament record with a 29 on the front nine on Friday. She never really slowed down.

About the only surprise Sunday came when her father appeared on a video chat toward the end of her press conference.

“See you soon,” Kim said with a smile and a wave.

She was, Park

Sei Young Kim fires 63 to seal KPMG Women’s PGA, first major win

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. — Sei Young Kim shot a 7-under 63 on Sunday to earn her first major title at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.

The 27-year-old South Korean finished at 14-under 266 at Aronimink Golf Course, winning the major that had eluded her so far in her career. Kim had 10 wins entering the tournament, which made her the winningest active player without a major championship.

Her 63 was the best round of the tournament. She finished 5 shots ahead of runner-up Inbee Park, who shot a solid 65 on Sunday.

“Sei Young was just really untouchable,” Park said.

Kim, a 2016 Olympian, was runner-up at the 2015 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and tied for second at the Evian Championship in 2018. Kim held the 54-hole lead at a major once, at the 2015 ANA Inspiration, where she finished in a tie for fourth.

She sealed the championship with

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.

Sei Young Kim takes 2-shot lead at KPMG Women’s PGA Championship

Kim went on another streaky run of birdies at Aronimink in Newtown Square, Pa., 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.

Kim sits at 7-under 203, two strokes ahead of Brooke Henderson and Anna Nordqvist, and will try to win it Sunday on a rare early-morning tee time.

“I wouldn’t say I’m nervous, but I’m also excited about going into the final day,” Kim said.

The tournament was delayed three months because of the coronavirus pandemic, landing its final round smack on a packed sports Sunday. The PGA of America had to get creative with the tee times with NBC having other programming commitments on the weekend. Kim, Henderson and Nordqvist tee off at 8:49 a.m. and the last group goes off at 9:16 a.m. The TV window is noon to 2 p.m. on
