Kim Sei-young claimed her first major title at the 2020 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at Newtown Square.

The South Korean, who had 10 LPGA tournament victories without a major, shot a seven under final-round 63 to take the title by five strokes, finishing on 14 under par.

Kim took a two-shot lead over Brooke Henderson and Anna Nordqvist into the last round.

She extended her advantage with seven birdies in a bogey-free round as she beat compatriot Inbee Park Inbee to the title.

Park finished on nine under after a final-round five under 65.

England’s Charley Hull finished in joint seventh after a one-under 69 elevated her from 11th place.

"This golf course is really challenging," said Kim after clinching victory. "I tried to keep the focus on my job. It was really tough.

"Sometimes I'm shaking my head and my legs were shaking but I was able to keep my focus and I was able to reach my big goal, so I'm very happy about that."
