Charley Hull three shots behind at Lake Merced

May 02-05
Lake Merced Golf Club, Daly City, California
$1,800,000
Round 1, Round 2, Round 4

Charley Hull produced a second consecutive round of 70 to sit three shots off the lead heading into the final round of the LPGA Mediheal Championship.


The Englishwoman entered round three two shots off the lead and despite her two under par effort, she could not keep pace with Sei Young Kim, who fired an excellent 68 to get to 10 under overall.

Puerto Rico’s Maria Torres sits in third at five under, a shot clear of a group of five players including world number two Minjee Lee.

Hull bogeyed the second but recovered well with birdies on the sixth, eighth and 15th as she goes in search of a second LPGA Tour title.

Kim also made a poor start with a bogey on the first but bounced back with an eagle on the par-five fifth and gains on the 11th, 15th and 18th.

With a Win

Sei Young Kim would earn her eighth career victory and visit the winner’s circle for the fifth consecutive year

With her eighth career victory, Kim would tie Mi Hyun Kim for the fifth most wins by a Korean player in LPGA history; only Se Ri Pak (25), Inbee Park (19), Jiyai Shin (11) and Na Yeon Choi (9) have more wins

Kim would become the season’s fifth winner from the Republic of Korea, joining Eun-Hee Ji, Jin Young Ko, Sung Hyun Park and Amy Yang

With the $270,000 winner’s check, Kim would project to move from 44th to 41st on the All-Time Money List with $6,402,923


Charley Hull would earn her second career victory and first since the 2016 CME Group Tour Championship

With the $270,000 winner’s check, Hull would project to move from 116th to 108th on the All-Time Money List with $3,147,459 and become the 110th player to LPGA history to break the $3 million threshold in career earnings
