Sei Young Kim opens with 2-shot lead
NAPLES, Fla. (AP) Sei Young Kim made a 12-foot eagle putt on the 17th hole to pull away from the pack with a 7-under 65 for a two-shot lead Thursday after the opening round of the season-ending CME Globe Tour Championship.
At stake is the richest prize ever in women's golf, with $1.5 million going to the winner, regardless of her position in the Race to CME Globe standings.
Kim, already a two-time winner on the LPGA this year, was bogey-free on a pleasant, breezy Tiburon Golf Club.
