Kim and Webb defy wild Scottish weather

31 July 2017

A closing 66 some how pushed her past Webb and Mi Jung Hur by one stroke to win the championship, an official LPGA stop for the first time in 2017 after being previously being exclusively a Ladies European Tour event.

Lee shot a six-under-66 with seven birdies and one bogey in the final round at Dundonald Links in North Ayrshire, Scotland on Sunday. She chipped in for eagle on the par-5 14th and bogeyed the par-4 16th before losing the lead on 17.

Lee, playing in the group ahead of Webb, increased the margin to two with a birdie on the par-5 18th. "When I stood up, I went to tell Johnny that I absolutely knotted my 3-wood exactly how I wanted and he said it kicked into the bunker", Webb said after her round. "It was really tough to focus on each shot, but I kept focused for a few seconds". She managed birdie, but missed out by a shot. "I'm trying not to get ahead of myself in this weather", Kerr said.

Lee-Anne Pace made five bogeys on her way to a 77, Stacy Bregman pencilled in a lone birdie at the second to go with a double bogey at the third and five further drops for a 78 and Nicole Garcia also added five bogeys to a double at the par four eighth.

She won the last of her 41 LPGA Tour titles in 2014 at the Founders Cup.

After training spat, Barca pals asking Neymar to stay
The pair were immediately separated when it started and Semedo walked away immediately, something which Neymar didn't want to do. Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer? Hello.

She tied for second place with Mi Jung Hur of South Korea at five-under.

Hall of Famer Webb, now 42 and in her 23rd season as a professional, made two bogeys and some sensational saves on the back nine.

An eagle putt was needed on the final hole to force the tournament into a play-off - but after shooting into the bunker, Webb could not regain her composure. "I still have lots to learn, but I'm having fun and I'll try my best tomorrow". "So, I'm very pleased with the score", Kerr said. Obviously there were nerves there, but there was a good calmness.

Kim has held the 54-hole lead three times, winning the last two at the Lotte Championship and the Blue Bay LPGA in 2015. But Lee cooled on the back, with eight consecutive pars and was unaware of what was happening behind her with Webb. Fellow Korean Sun Young Yoo also finds herself at three-under par for the tournament.

Lee said she had no idea where her ball was going during her Tuesday practice round in the high winds that she played with rental clubs featuring irons with regular shafts, instead of the stiff shafts she is accustomed to. "Then just really started swinging at it well and hitting it quite close and had some good birdie chances and made the a lot of them".
