Sei Young Kim’s Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic Victory Recognized by World Golf Hall of Fame

Posted on Aug 24, 2018 by

The 2018 Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic will forever be remembered in the LPGA’s history books – and now at the World Golf Hall of Fame – following a record-setting performance by South Korea’s Sei Young Kim.

Kim posted the above photo (courtesy World Golf Hall of Fame) to her social media this week that revealed an exhibit at the St. Augustine, Florida-based museum showcasing her four scorecards and a signed glove used during the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic. She included a caption that read: “Glorious History!”

Kim’s 31-under-par 257 at the 2018 Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic was the lowest 72-hole score in relation to par in the LPGA’s seven-decade history. “I’m very happy… (my) dream came true,” said Kim.

“We share the excitement with Sei Young and her world record performance,” said Josh Doxtator, Chief Operating Officer, Oneida Golf Enterprise Corporation. “It’s an honor to be forever captured in the World Golf Hall of Fame and we look forward to seeing what our defending champ can do in 2019.”
