Sei Young Kim won her second LPGA Tour title this season at the Marathon Classic on Sunday, firing five straight birdies in a 6-under 66 for a two-stroke victory over Lexi Thompson.


She started her birdie run on No. 7 and finished at a tournament-record 22-under 262 at Highland Meadows Golf Club. The 26-year-old has nine tour titles and also won the LPGA MEDIHEAL Championship in May in California.

“I really wanted another win, especially this week, because the last two weeks I play really bad,” Ki said.

Thompson, who was a stroke behind Kim at the start of her round, closed birdie-eagle for a 66.


“She played some amazing golf,” Thompson said. “I didn’t have my best ball-striking day, but 5 under, finished well. She played amazing. It’s very well deserved.”

Kim was six shots ahead of Thompson after her birdie run and played the final seven holes in even par, offsetting a birdie on 15 with a late bogey. Kim broke the event mark of 263 set by In-Kyung Kim in 2017.

She’s focused on winning her first major title, with The Evian Championship and Women’s British Open coming up.

“I haven’t had a win the major tournament yet,” Kim said. “I think I try too much when I play the major tournament. I just play the same as regular tournament, even major. … Just let it go. Let it happen.”

Toledo born Stacy Lewis was third at 16 under after a 66.

“It was a lot of fun,” Lewis said. “More putts have gone in this week than in the years past. It was nice to give my family something to cheer for.”
