Round 4 - Ariya Jutanugarn wins Kingsmill Championship

May 20, 2018

Ariya Jutanugarn birdied the second playoff hole on Sunday to win the Kingsmill Championship for the second time in three years.

''I'm going to say I didn't expect anything this week because I think I have been playing ... very good like the last few tournaments and I'm still not winning the tournaments,'' she said. ''So show up this week, I just tell myself I'm not going to expect anything. I'm going to really focus on the things under my control and make sure I'm going to have good commitment every shot.''

Jutanugarn played a final round 66 to match In Gee Chun and Nasa Hataoka at 14-under 199 and force a playoff. Chun dropped out after the first hole when Jutanugarn and Hataoka both played birdies. Hataoka missed her putt on the second hole while Jutanugarn rolled in hers from 15 feet.

''I couldn't believe I played in a playoff in such an early stage in my career,'' Hataoka said. ''I'm just going to try to keep going for the rest of the year.''

This was Jutanugarn's eighth top-10 finish this season, she is the only player on Tour to have made the cut in every event she started in.

Round 2 - Kingsmill reduced to 54 holes after play washed out

May 19, 2018

Rain washed out play Saturday at the LPGA Kingsmill Championship, forcing tournament officials to reduce the event to 54 holes with hopes of finishing on Sunday.

Sixty players will return to the par-71 Kingsmill layout in Williamsburg, Virginia, with hopes of completing the second round Sunday morning and following with a third round after the cut.

South Korea's Chun In-gee completed a second-round 66, five-under par, before darkness halted the storm-interrupted second round Friday to seize the clubhouse lead on 11-under par 131.

Japan's Nasa Hataoka and American Austin Ernst shared second one shot behind, with Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn and the United States' Angel Yin another stroke adrift.

Jessica Korda , a back-nine starter in round two, was the nearest player to the lead still on the course at eight-under with four holes to finish.

Scotland's Catriona Matthew was on seven-under with four holes remaining and three-under for her second round.

A pack of hopefuls on five-under still on the course included American Mina Harigae with eight holes to play, Spain's Azahara Munoz and Germany's Caroline Masson with four holes to finish and Japan's Ayako Uehara with two holes remaining.

Round 2 - In Gee Chun leading as play suspended

May 18, 2018

In Gee Chun shot a 5-under 66 on Friday to take the lead in the suspended second round of the LPGA Tour's Kingsmill Championship.

Three-quarters of an inch of rain fell overnight on Kingsmill Resort's River Course, delaying the start of play an hour. Storms developed again in the afternoon and play was suspended for more than hour, then finally called for day at 7:25 p.m.

Chun played in the morning. The South Korean star had six birdies and a bogey to get to 11-under 131.

''I felt good,'' Chun said. ''I could see the putting lines very well today.''

Chun's two victories came in major championships in the 2015 U.S. Women's Open and 2016 The Evian Championship.

''I really like this course,'' Chun said. ''I always happy to play here and see all the good people from here. Everything was very comfy. Everything is very comfy.''

Austin Ernst (65) and Nasa Hataoka (66) were a stroke back after bogey-free rounds.

''Just really solid,'' Ernst said. ''Hit a lot of fairways, hit a lot of greens, and then my speed was really good, so I never really had to work too hard all day.''

Ariya Jutanugarn (67) and Angel Yin (66) were 9 under, and Megan Khang (67) was in at 8 under. Jessica Korda also was 8 under with four holes to play.

''Every year here is just like all weather pretty bad,'' Jutanugarn said. ''Just keep changing.''

Canada's Brooke Henderson had a 65 to get to 7 under.

''It was a great day,'' Henderson said. ''I'm happy to move up the leaderboard as much as I did today.''

Defending champion Lexi Thompson (69) and three-time winner Cristie Kerr (68) were 3 under.

Round 1 - Five players tied at 6-under in Kingsmill

May 17, 2018

Annie Park turned a blistering stretch on the back nine into a mistake-free 6-under 65 and a share of the first-round lead on a crowded leaderboard Thursday at the Kingsmill Championship.

Jessica Korda, Azahara Munoz, In Gee Chun and Jaye Marie Green also shot 65. Park, Korda and Munoz played morning rounds in mild conditions, while Chun and Green played in rain that is expected to also be a factor Friday and Saturday on the resort's already-soggy River Course.

Park, playing in just her third tour event of the season and seeking her first career victory, was 2 under when she hit the flag and birdied the par 4 14th hole. She then nearly holed her second shot on the par-5 15th after hitting ''an OK 3-wood'' that left her with a short eagle putt, and also birdied the par-4 16th.

''Overall, I had a great day,'' she said. ''I hit some good shots. Lucky enough, I had some short birdie putts, short eagle putt, and that helps.''

Munoz had seven birdies and one bogey, and Korda and Chun were bogey-free. Green had seven birdies and bogeyed No. 18.

Munoz earned her only tour win in 2012, and settled in after starting with a bogey.

''I hit so many good shots,'' she said. ''Gave myself a lot of opportunities. Made some really nice putts.''

She also chipped in for her final birdie after missing the green to the left on the par-4 eighth hole.

''I made a really nice chip. It was a bit too firm, but it was really nice,'' she said.

Korda, the winner of the Honda LPGA Thailand in February in her return from reconstructive jaw surgery, is making just her seventh start of the season and has finished in the top 10 in four of them. She had three birdies on each nine, including the par-4 18th.

Korda is one of 11 winners on tour this season, and no one has won more than once. The past few weeks, she's been fine-tuning her game to be ready for the Women's U.S. Open at the end of the month in Alabama.

''My transition hasn't been great. A lot of people have asked me why I was hitting it so short in (San Francisco), and I was just trying to hit it into the fairway because I just wasn't feeling great over the ball,'' she said. ''So just trying to tighten up some things before the U.S. Open comes around. Hopefully just keeps going the way that it is.''

Chun is making just her seventh start of the season, and Green has missed four of eight cuts.

Nasa Hataoka and 2016 winner Ariya Jutanugarn were one back. Hataoka's bogey-free round included an ace at the par-3 17th. It was her first as a professional. There were nine more at 67, including 2015 champion Minjee Lee.

Cristie Kerr, whose three victories make her the only multiple winner at Kingsmill, opened with a 71, and defending champion Lexi Thompson, who set a tournament record last year at 20-under 264, was in a tie for 49th with Michelle Wie and numerous others after a 70.
