Sei Young Kim wins Pelican Women's Championship for second straight victory

Sophia Popov surges to first-round lead at Pelican Women's Championship

Kim's level-par 70 was enough to earn her 12th LPGA Tour title in her first start since capturing her maiden major title at the KMPG Women's PGA Championship last month.

A lot of the holes it seemed like it was a left-to-right wind, which being a draw player was just really messing with my swing, Lincicome said.

England's Mel Reid, who won her first LPGA event earlier in the season, finished in a share of 12th - 11 off the pace - with her compatriot Jodi Ewart Shadoff a further stroke back in 14th. "I was hitting it really well. When I [got] to three-shot lead I was like, 'Oh, my God, she can't be like chase me.' I was like, 'OK, Sei Young, focus, keep going.' Yeah". Meadow birdied four of her last five holes, finishing on the front nine, for a 65. I hung in there, made some great up and downs.

Women's British Open victor Sophia Popov left top-ranked playing partner Jin Young Ko and everyone else behind Thursday in the Pelican Womens Championship.

"After the tournament I just want to relax and then feel fresh, make myself feel fresh, so don't think about golf, " Kim said.

"I wasn't really getting anything out there on the front nine but definitely nice to finish strong on the back", Ko said.

"After I made that birdie it was a little more comfortable and then I felt back, had a good feeling back".

In a four-way tied for sixth place were a trio of Americans including Jessica Korda (64), Angela Stanford (65) and Jennifer Song (65), as well as Canadian Brooke Henderson (69). "That's kind of my strategy, because I wasn't looking at the hole, but then it went in".

Her commanding, overnight five-shot lead remained intact for much of the final day as none of her closest rivals were able to sustain a prominent challenge over the final 18 holes at the picturesque Pelican Golf Club.

The Northern Irishwoman recovered from two immediate bogeys as she battled for second with U.S. player Ally McDonald.

The first-year tournament was originally to be held the same week as the PGA Championship in May.
