South Korea's Kim Sei-young fired a second-round 65 on Friday to charge into the weekend at the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic with a four-shot lead on 16-under par 128.

AUSTRALIA'S Katherine Kirk, the overnight leader, battled her way to a one-under 71 in the second round to be tied for third at the halfway point of the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic in Wisconsin.

The 25-year-old, who won her last LPGA title in May 2017 at the Lorena Ochoa Match Play in Mexico, secured the victory with seven birdies in the final round on Sunday, reports Efe.

Kim actually has a 27 under par total for 72 holes which she recorded when winning the JTBC Founders Cup in 2016. She finished at 31-under, 257 to shatter the 72-hole scoring record, which she previously owned along with Annika Sorenstam, who totaled a 27-under in 2001. But after the major tournament, I realised, 'OK, I can do that.' If I imagine, it comes true.

Spain's Carlotta Ciganda came in second at 22 under after shooting a 64, while Anna Nordqvist, Emma Talley and Amy Yang tied for third place on 20 under.

"First hole, my second shot was nearly a tap-in birdie, so (I) started really solid", said Kim, who is seeking a seventh LPGA title.

There were 31 birdies in Kim's round, also a LPGA record for 72 holes.

"Sei Young was playing unbelievably", said Ciganda, who notched her best result since 2016. She obviously knows how to win. Her only blemish all week came in round two, when she made a double bogey at the 17th. In addition, the 17-under marks the first time in her career, amateur, college or professional, that she has finished in double figures.

Kim began the final round with an eight-shot lead and played magnificent golf all day.

Torres made seven birdies against just one bogey for her 66 on Sunday. But she dropped two shots at the par-five 15th when she hit one ball in the water and another into a hazard. Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., closed at 14 under.

"I made a really good up and down on 17 and then to stick it close on 18 to give myself an opportunity was great", said Law.

During her first season on the LPGA Tour, Kim won three tournaments to earn the Tour's Rookie of the Year award.
