PGA to bring Ryder Cup, other top events to Congressional
The PGA of America is bringing its biggest championships to Congressional over the next two decades.
Nearly three months after the PGA Tour ended another run outside golf-rich Washington, the PGA of America announced an agreement for the club to host the Women's PGA Championship twice, the Senior PGA Championship twice, the PGA Championship (2031) and the Ryder Cup (2036).
ONEIDA, Wis. (AP) — Katherine Kirk hadn't won a tournament in seven years until capturing last year's inaugural Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic. Now, she's back to defend her title and end another slump.
In her last six tournaments, she missed the cut five times and tied for 61st in the other. At last week's KPMG Women's PGA Championship, she shot a second-round score of 11-over 83 to miss the cut. It was the worst round of her professional career.
KILDEER, Ill. (AP) — Sung Hyun Park raised her arms and placed her hands on her head before hugging her caddie and wiping away tears.
She simply could not contain her emotions after winning her second major championship — and doing it in such dramatic fashion.
Park beat So Yeon Ryu on the second hole of a playoff Sunday in the KPMG Women's PGA Championship.
KILDEER, Ill. (AP) — So Yeon Ryu sees another major championship in reach and a spot in history in sight. She knows what she has to do, and she took a big step Saturday.
Ryu broke away on the closing holes at Kemper Lakes to take a three-stroke lead in the KPMG Women's PGA Championship.
KILDEER, Ill. (AP) — Lydia Ko birdied the first hole and just kept rolling from there — all the way into contention for another major victory.
Ko shot a 6-under 66 on Friday in the second round of the KPMG Women's PGA Championship to move two strokes off the lead.
The 21-year-old New Zealander shook off an opening 74 at Kemper Lakes to reach 4 under and give herself a shot to win her third major.
KILDEER, Ill. (AP) — Sung Hyun Park sees herself rounding back into form.
Winning a second major sure would be a good way to prove it, and to that end, the 24-year-old South Korean player is off to a good start.
Park shot a bogey-free 6-under 66 on Thursday to take the first-round lead in the KPMG Women's PGA Championship. The 2017 U.S. Women's Open Champion birdied three of the four par-5 holes at Kemper Lakes in the third of the LPGA Tour's five majors.
KILDEER, Ill. (AP) — Inbee Park is energized and ready to take aim at her eighth major.
The thumb and back that bothered her in recent years are fine. Though, one thing is weighing on the LPGA Hall of Famer entering the KPMG Women's PGA Championship. Someone broke into her house in Las Vegas last week, and she's still not sure exactly what was taken.
CHICAGO (AP) — It has been almost a year since Danielle Kang won the KPMG Women's PGA Championship, and her life looks pretty much the same.
Kang still has the same friends, everyone from fellow LPGA star Michelle Wie to hockey Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky. She remains active on social media, delighting her Instagram followers with a peek at her life on and off the course. She continues to work on her game.
SINGAPORE (AP) — The distraction of a chipped tooth proved to be no problem for Danielle Kang as she shot an 8-under 64 to take a four-stroke lead at the halfway stage of the Women's World Championship on Friday.
Kang, who won last year's Women's PGA Championship for her first major title, equaled the course record at the Sentosa Golf Club to lead the LPGA tournament at 12-under 132.
"Never too bad to tie a course record," Kang said. "That's interesting to hear. I like that."
Danielle Kang recovered from a bizarre mishap that left her nursing a broken tooth to be among the leaders on the opening day of the LPGA Singapore tournament on Thursday.
The reigning Women's PGA Championship champion, Kang said she fell asleep while exercising ahead of her opening round, and woke up feeling pain in her mouth.
ONEIDA, Wis. (AP) — Elected officials and pageant royalty from the Oneida Nation signaled the official start of the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic with a ceremonial blessing of the golf course on the first tee of Thornberry Creek at Oneida.
The inaugural tournament includes a practice day on Tuesday, a pro-am on Wednesday and competition Thursday through Sunday.
Danielle Kang wins KPMG Women’s PGA Championship
OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. (AP) — From a young age, Danielle Kang's parents instilled in her the belief that anything was possible.
Even major championships.
Kang birdied the final hole to win the KPMG Women's PGA Championship on Sunday for her first LPGA Tour title, edging defending champion Brooke Henderson.
OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. (AP) — Danielle Kang got a text message from Wayne Gretzky on Saturday morning. Caitlyn Jenner called Friday, and four-time major winner Hollis Stacy also reached out.
Lots of high-profile support for Kang as she goes for her first major championship.
The 24-year-old Kang and Chella Choi shared the lead heading into the final round of the KPMG Women's PGA Championship. Kang won the U.S. Women's Amateur in 2010 in 2011, but she has never won an LPGA Tour tournament.
OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. (AP) — Danielle Kang won back-to-back majors as an amateur yet she's never cracked the winner's circle in her half-dozen years as a pro.
The 24-year-old Californian took a big step in the right direction, grabbing a share of the second-round lead in the morning wave Friday at the KPMG Women's PGA Championship. Her biggest hurdle could well be co-leader Sei Young Kim, the LPGA Tour's 2015 Rookie of the Year and already a six-time winner on tour.
OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. (AP) — Michelle Wie launched a 3-wood into swirling gusts and toward the 18th green, wondering if the shot had enough steam to get there. A shift in the wind took the guesswork out of the equation.
"It died down and I got a little surprise," Wie said. "I got all the way there."
A major week for the LPGA and the seniors
So Yeon Ryu goes into the LPGA Tour's second major on quite a roll.
By winning last week in Arkansas, the 26-year-old Ryu became the first player to win multiple times on the LPGA Tour this year. It also was enough for the South Korean to rise to No. 1 in the world. And now she has a chance to become only the fourth woman in the last 50 years to capture the first two legs of the Grand Slam.
OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. (AP) — So Yeon Ryu wants to halt what has resembled a game of musical chairs on the LPGA Tour this season.
SAN MARTIN, Calif. (AP) — There is very little separating the top two women's golfers in the world in Lydia Ko and Brooke Henderson.
The two teenage sensations have won the past three majors heading into this week's U.S. Women's Open with the 19-year-old Ko taking two and the 18-year-old Henderson following last month with a thrilling playoff victory over Ko in the KPMG Women's PGA Championship in Washington that could set the stage for a heated rivalry for years to...
