Kim bests Nordqvist to claim ShopRite LPGA

Posted June 05, 2017

South Korea's Kim In Kyung will be hoping to arrive in Ontario, Canada with a fifth LPGA title to her name.

Lydia Ko's reign as world number one is set to end on Sunday, but it remains unclear just who will replace her atop the summit at Sunday's conclusion of the LPGA ShopRite Classic. Nordqvist is tied for third two shots out of the lead after shooting 64-71 for a 36-hole total of shot a 7-under 135. She fell down a flight of stairs and bruised her tailbone, but Kim said it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. "I have so many good memories here, obviously". It nearly feels like home now with a lot of supporters and a lot of friends here.”. Nordqvist is also trying to join Annika Sorenstam and Betsy King as the only golfers to win three Classics.

"I feel like I enjoy this place, but at the same time, I don't feel like I have anything to prove here", Nordqvist said. "I am going to take off next week". Happy with my start and looking forward to the rest.”.

The leading duo were two strokes in front of two-time defending champion Anna Nordqvist of Sweden, South Korea's Lee Jeong-Eun and Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn - playing as her sister Ariya takes the week off.

May jobs report: 4 things to know
The mining sector added 7,000 jobs in May, adding to a total of 47,000 new jobs since reaching a recent low point in October 2016. The U-6 has declined since January, an encouraging sign that jobless people who had given up hope of working are now being hired.

Jutanugarn, 21, will become the 10th player to hold the No. 1 ranking since the Rolex Women's World Rankings made their debut in 2006.

"I just stuck it in there close today", she said.

Ryu needed to finish third or better at ShopRite to have a chance to move to No. 1, but she shot a pair of 74s to miss her first cut in nearly three years.

However, she missed the cut on Saturday, leaving the top spot to be claimed by Jutanugarn, whose five career LPGA titles and one major were all won past year.

Happy June! The sun is out, the birds are singing, the breeze is blowing, and there's new music to enjoy. The track begins softly with a gently strummed guitar over Dave Grohl's subdued vocals.

With Jutanugarn also skipping the event, Ryu can grab the top ranking if she either wins in New Jersey, finishes in a two- or three-way tie for second or comes outright third.

Runnerup Nordqvist said a cold putter had prevented her from a better run at Kim.

"We just couldn't get a rhythm, especially with some of these pins and the wind and everything", she said. The greens are pretty small and it feels like you have to give yourself quite a few opportunities to make a couple.”.

NOTES: The last player to win the same LPGA event three years running was Inbee Park, who won what is now the PGA Women's Championship in 2013 '14 and '15.
