Sei Young Kim holds on to lead heading into final day

Round 1, Round 2, Round 4



Sei Young Kim shot 3-under 67 on Saturday to hold on to at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. She sits at 7-under 203, two strokes clear of Brooke Henderson and Anna Nordqvist, for another chance at her first major win.


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

She came second at the 2015 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and was runner-up at the Evian Championship in 2018 as well as holding the 54-hole lead at the 2015 ANA Inspiration before finishing fourth.



Henderson, who won the Women’s PGA Championship in 2016, tied her career-best 18-hole score in a major with a 65 to stay in contention.

“Sometimes it’s hard to believe that I’m a major champion. But definitely in times like this it gives me a little bit of confidence, and I’m excited to try to do it again tomorrow.”


Three-time former champion Inbee Park is only three shots behind the leader. A win on Sunday would put her in a tie with Mickey Wright for the most in a career with a win.

“I’d be lying if I said I don’t think about it, but it’s just too crazy to think something big like that, in the history of golf, history of this championship, is going to maybe have a slim chance of happening to me,” said Park.



Laura Davies is playing this event (formerly the LPGA Championship) for the 32nd time this year. Only Marlene Hagge has played it more with 35.

She made the cut for the 23rd time on Friday, for the first time since 2015 at Westchester Country Club in New York.

Davies, who turned 57 on Monday, Cristie Kerr and Angela Stanford are the only players 40 or older to make the cut this week.

The scheduling of tee times for Sunday was tricky this year. Because of the delay caused by the pandemic the final day is taking place on a packed sports weekend for NBC. Kim, Henderson and Nordqvist will tee off at 8:49 a.m. and the last group will start at 9:16 a.m.

“The only thing I have to keep in mind is that earlier tee times will be a little chillier temperature wise, so I’ll make sure I have my hand warmers and be ready to play tomorrow,” said Kim.
