Round 3 - Annie Park claims ShopRite LPGA Classic

June 10, 2018

Annie Park produced a scintillating final round to claim her first career at the ShopRite LPGA Classic on Sunday.

The 23-year-old from New York, who had started the day in the chasing pack at eight under, carded an eight-under-par 63 to claim victory by one shot.

Park's flawless round included six birdies and an eagle, leaving her with a 54-hole aggregate 197, 16 under par for the tournament.

Park, who is ranked 236th in the world, was ecstatic and finally ending her wait for a title at a course close to where she grew up.

"I can't really describe it in words," Park said. "I've been through a lot of struggles, and thank my family for being here.

"There are so many people that supported me. Without them, I can't be here where I am today, so I thank them so much."

The win sealed a dramatic final day at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club course at Galloway, New Jersey.

With weather interrupting play on Saturday, players returned to the course to complete the second round.

The momentum appeared to be firmly with South Korea's Kim Sei-Young, who fired a course record 61 including 10 birdies to take a two-shot lead heading into the final round.

Kim however was unable to muster a challenge in the final round as several players went on a hot streak to surge up the leaderboard.

Kim closed with a one-under-par 70, leaving her at 13 under for the tournament.

Instead, the final round fireworks were left to Park, Japan's Sakura Yokomine and Marina Alex.

Yokomine appeared to be on course to become only the second woman in LPGA Tour history to break 60 in an incredible final round charge.

The 32-year-old reached the 18th tee needing an eagle to match Annika Sorenstam's 59 shot at the Standard Register Ping tournament in Phoenix in 2001.

Yokomine was unable to conjure a grandstand finish however and had to settle for a par, leaving with a course-record equalling 61.

Yokomine's round included an eagle and eight birdies, leaving her 15 under for the tournament, one shot behind Park.

Alex meanwhile finished in third on 14 under after a closing seven-under-par 64, a round which included a hole-in-one on the par-three 17th. She almost followed that up with an eagle on the last, before settling for birdie.

"It was an incredible day," she said. "Got off to a really good start and just tried to carry that momentum the entire day.

"That finish was unbelievable, hole-in-one and then almost eagle on the last. Just a really good round of golf."

Round 2 - Celine Herbin leading as play suspended

June 09, 2018

France's Celine Herbin fired her second straight five-under 66 to take the clubhouse lead in the weather-hit second round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic on Saturday.

Herbin, who matched her lowest round of the season, was tied at 10-under overall with South Korea's Kim Sei-young who was eight-under for her round through 15 holes when darkness halted play for the day.

"It's a good position to be in," said Herbin, the world number 269. "I don't really look at the leaderboard so I didn't really know what was going on today. I was just focused on my game."

Kim was storming up the leaderboard with nine birdies on Friday, including four straight on her opening nine, a run that started at the par-three 15th.

Her only blemish was a bogey on the par-four 14th hole.

Kim will try to overtake Herbin when she completes her round on Sunday morning.

Four players were tied for fourth at eight-under par including South Africa’s Ashleigh Buhai, Aussie Su Oh and Americans Mariah Stackhouse and Annie Park.

This is the fifth consecutive week that inclement weather has struck an LPGA Tour event and the seventh time this season.

The players had to endure an almost three hour mid-round delay because of storms around the Bay Course in Galloway, New Jersey.

When the horn sounded there were still 36 players on the course who will return to finish their rounds on Sunday morning.

Herbin's best result of the season is a tie for 28th at the Mediheal Championship.

In 2015 she won the French Open on the Ladies European Tour in front of her hometown crowd. She has never held a lead before on the LPGA Tour but isn't worried.

"Maybe my age is a positive thing. Maturity definitely helps me," she said. "I've been there. I know how to deal with that.

"Of course I'm going to be nervous tomorrow if I am in the last group. It's part of the game. If you are not, it's very strange."

Herbin is seeking to become the first player from France to win on the LPGA Tour since Patricia Meunier-Lebouc capture the 2003 Kraft Nabisco Championship in Rancho Mirage, California.

Round 1 - Nordqvist, Diaz & Herbin tied for ShopRite lead

June 08, 2018

Two-time champion Anna Nordqvist shot a 5-under 66 on Friday for a share of the first-round lead with Laura Diaz and Celine Herbin in the ShopRite LPGA Classic.

Nordqvist won the 54-hole event in 2015 and 2016 on Stockton Seaview's Bay Course and finished second last year. Teeing off Friday in the afternoon when the wind was stronger, the 30-year-old Swede closed her bogey-free round with a birdie on the par-5 ninth.

''Honestly, I have a lot of good memories from here,'' Nordqvist said. ''It's a place that makes me happy. I seemed to be striking the ball better today than for most of the year, so I was very consistent, gave myself a lot of chances. I was trying to stay patient out there and I'm very happy to post a good round.''

The eight-time LPGA Tour winner is seeking her ninth career victory, has missed the cut in three of her last five events. She is currently 54th on the LPGA money list with more than $132,000 in earnings.

The 43-year-old Diaz made the field as an alternate. She played in the morning when the greens were smoother and the wind more benign and carded five birdies.

Her 12-year-old son, Cooper, was on the bag for her first competitive LPGA Tour round of the year.

''It's more special because I have my son with me,'' Diaz said. ''It was great. He wasn't nervous. He was perfect. So it's a calming influence. I think I spent more time worrying about him.''

Herbin, 35, birdied the final two holes.

Lydia Ko, In-Gee Chun and ANA Inspiration winner Pernilla Lindberg were at 67 with Sandra Gal, Su Oh, Beatriz Recari, Amy Yang and Wayne, New Jersey native Marina Alex. Defending champion I.K. Kim had a 68.

Shanshan Feng, at No. 4 the top-ranked player in the field, shot 69.

Leona Maguire, the former Duke star from Ireland, had a 69 in pro debut.
