Aditi, victor of the Hero Women's Indian Open in her Rookie Year as a professional in 2016, has earned a special status on the LPGA. Nordqvist was in position to challenge until a bogey at the par-3 15th, and her 69 put her in second place at 204.
Kim enjoyed a two-shot swing at the 10th with her birdie and Creamer's bogey. "I didn't expect it right away, but I knew my game was better than past year". My caddie was like, 'What are you doing?' I was rushing. "I had a lot of help from my physiotherapist". "I've missed just three greens today".
This was Kim's first LPGA win in the United States since 2009, for her two previous wins had come in Mexico and China. Back-to-back birdies at Nos.
However, Kim extended the margin when she birdied the par-4 12th. Creamer had a disappointing final round, dropping five shots with a 74 that saw her slump to a tie for seventh at 6-under par. "There were some good pins out there that we had to kind of think about a bit".
Nordqvist said she hit "way too much club" as she flew the green and ended up with a tricky lie. "I played solid. I hit some good putts that didn't go in and made some good putts that went in". 16 and 17, but just got a little mucky. "I believe that will get me to number one". She then endured a long dry spell before breaking through in October a year ago. Back-to-back bogeys at 11 and 12 and a third at the 14th took her out of contention.
Kim, who said Saturday she loved coming to this event because of her relationship with Special Olympics New Jersey, needed only 79 putts on the week. "It was just a hard afternoon with the wind".
"I really prepared for this summer and I really didn't expect it right away but I knew my game was better than a year ago, so that's really all I could ask for", she said in a greenside interview, a broad smile on her face after being drenched in champagne.
