‘It’s not possible for anyone to contact’ South Korean star S.Y. Kim


NAPLES, Fla. – Sei Young Kim might be the most underestimated South Korean star.

With her 7-under 65 Thursday, she took the first-round lead at the CME Group Tour Championship, situating herself right on time for a run at the $1.5 million victor’s check, the most extravagant throughout the entire existence of ladies’ golf.

Kim, 26, is hoping to guarantee her third LPGA title this year, the 10th of her profession.

How great is that among South Korean stars who have played the American-based visit?

Just Se Ri Pak (25), Inbee Park (19) and Jiyai Shin (11) have won more LPGA titles than Kim.

Pak, Park and Shin all won significant titles. Kim is as yet searching for her first. She’s viewed as the best player in the ladies’ down today who hasn’t won one.

“I believe she’s going to wind up winning every one of the majors,” said Paul Fusco, her caddie. “We talk about it a great deal. Perhaps she doesn’t win them all, however it’s simply a question of time until she begins winning them. She accepts she can.”

The current week’s occasion is certainly not a significant, however it’s the following best thing with that victor’s bonanza. Kim won the LPGA’s Mediheal Championship at Lake Merced Golf Club outside San Francisco in May on a course set up like a significant.

She won in single digits (- 7), indicating how her game is fit to any sort of arrangement, regardless of whether standard’s a decent score or birdies are required in bundles. Kim crushed the LPGA’s 72- gap scoring record winning the Thornberry Classic a year ago. Her 31- under aggregate there was four shots superior to anything the past visit record, which Kim imparted to Hall of Famer Annika Sorenstam.

“Definitely, I’m one-sided, however when Sei Young is on, it’s not possible for anyone to contact her,” Fusco said.
