Kim, healthy again, wins Shoprite LPGA Classic by two shots

General views from the Shop Rite LPGA Classic Presented by Acer

Ryu had four straight bogeys in a 74 that left her tied for 98th — and in danger of missing the cut.

Kim won the Reignwood LPGA Classic late a year ago in China for her fourth tour title.

She is the 13th different player and seventh from South Korea to win in 13 LPGA events this year.

"Just having the honor to back-to-back defend is quite fantastic", Nordqvist said. The biggest difference this year is I've been happy on and off the course. 16 and 17, but just got a little mucky.

This week's ShopRite LPGA Classic in New Jersey will mark a historic moment in Indian women's golf as Aditi Ashok and Sharmila Nicollet will be teeing up at the event for the first time. She spent the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017 recovering after falling down the stairs.

"I just couldn't really make the puts yesterday and today when it mattered", Nordqvist said. "My trainer, my coach, they had to change so many plans for me because so many things happened last winter".

"I feel good. I feel prepared", Creamer said.

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.

And as for being No. 1, she replied, "I'm going to have a week off next week".

"Fifteen kind of killed us", she said. That's unfortunate, because I said early on to the girls we got to try to keep up. She pointed to her wedge play as the key for her success Sunday. "I just need to regroup, and then I'll be OK after that".

"Feel like I had a good putt on".

Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn has seized the number one world ranking from New Zealand's Lydia Ko with neither lifting a club in the LPGA ShopRite Classic - where Ryu So-Yeon missed the cut Saturday to cement the shift.

Creamer was happy to be tied for the lead after taking a penalty stroke at her final hole, before getting up-and-down to save par. In-Kyung Kim, of South Korea, places her ball before putting on the third hole during the final round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic golf tournament Sunday, June 4, 2017, in Galloway Township, N.J.

It's the first of two tournaments in Canada, as the LPGA Tour will return in late August for the CP Canadian Women's Open in Ottawa, Ontario.
