Frame and Kang push however can’t pass triumphant Kim in Naples
NAPLES, Fla. – Sei Young Kim’s triumph Sunday at the CME Group Tour Championship wouldn’t have been as sensational without all her co-stars.
Charley Hull, Danielle Kang, Nelly Korda and Brooke Henderson all helped assemble the strain until Kim’s conclusive 25- foot birdie putt to win fell toward the end.

Body’s performance runner up finish was worth $480,000, more than the champ’s check in 28 of the LPGA’s 33 occasions this year.
Body, 23, got hitched the week after the Solheim Cup in September, yet she and her significant other, blended hand to hand fighting victor Ozzie Smith, still haven’t taken their special first night yet.
“Going on my special first night next Friday,” Hull said.
They’ll have some additional going through cash.
“Going to Dubai for two days and Maldives,” she said.

Korda, probably the best driver in the game, struggled to give herself chances notwithstanding a uniquely wayward ball-striking round. She hit two balls in punishment territories and thumped three crashes into the trees however figured out how to confine that harm.
“I was hitting it downright terrible today, particularly with my driver,” Korda said. “I think I had three punishment strokes. I hit it twice in the water, and afterward I took an unplayable on one of different gaps.”
She mixed to give herself chances until the end.
“I was blurring my ball, and I never blur my ball,” Korda said.
Henderson shot an intruder free 67 to complete independent fifth, three shots back.
