Kim holds off Nordqvist for ShopRite win

ShopRite renews LPGA tournament sponsorship for five years

A year ago, Anna Nordqvist shot a final-round 64 to tie the tournament scoring record set by Annika Sorenstam (-17) and held off Haru Nomura by one shot to defend her title at the 2016 ShopRite LPGA Classic Presented.

Tied with Paula Creamer overnight on nine-under par after 36 holes, Kim fired a final round 69 for a total of 11 under and a two-stroke victory over Nordqvist.

She closed out her round with back-to-back birdies and said she's feeling "even stronger" after a winter spent rehabbing injuries suffered in a freak fall down some stairs.

NOTES: The last player to win the same LPGA event three years running was Inbee Park, who won what is now the PGA Women's Championship in 2013 '14 and '15.

After deleting prior tweet, Trump asks world to find out 'covfefe' meaning
There is nothing unusual about this, given Trump's penchant for late-night tweets that often result in widespread controversy. After deleting the tweet , Trump , sphinx-like, wrote , "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe"??? ".

"I feel like I'm hitting the shots I need to hit", Nordqvist said.

Michelle Wie had a 65 to tie for third at 7 under with Jenny Shin (69), Jacqui Concolino (70) and Jeong Eun Lee (71).

Now that Ryu has missed the cut, Ariya Jutanugarn will move up to No. 1 in the world, supplanting Lydia Ko, who has held the spot for 84 consecutive weeks.

According to LPGA projections, Ko's reign will end this week with either Ryu or Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn taking over. Ryu's failure to finish solo third or better meant that Jutanugarn took over at the top.

"I feel really pleased with how I played today".

"The biggest difference this year is I've been happy on and off the course", Nordqvist said. I was kind of frustrated after my first round. "I hit it a lot closer today, which felt good". I was hoping I would play better, but I couldn't. Ive been playing good for a long time now, so just tying get everything to click at once.

The 26-year-old Ryu thrust herself into the race for number one with a victory in the year's first major, the ANA Inspiration - where her playoff victory came after American Lexi Thompson was controversially penalized in the middle of the final round for an infraction on the previous day.
