On Sunday, 26-year-old Sei Young Kim from South Korea sank a 25-foot birdie putt on No. 18 to win the largest check in women’s golf history, taking the $1.5 million at the CME Group Tour Championship at Tiburón Golf Club.
Kim was the LPGA Rookie of the Year in 2015. She broke Annika Sorenstam’s tour scoring record, having shot 31 under at the 2018 Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic. The win Sunday at the CME marks her 10th on the LPGA Tour, and her third of the 2019 season.
