Jutanugarn takes No. 1 spot; Creamer, Kim lead in New Jersey

ShopRite renews LPGA tournament sponsorship for five years

Moriya Jutanugarn - whose sister Ariya official took over the No.1 spot in the Rolex Rankings at the conclusion of the tournament, ending Lydia Ko's 84-week run at the top - struggled Sunday to a 1-over-par 72. Ko, also skipping the event, was guaranteed to lose the top spot to Ariya Jutanugarn or Ryu, and Ariya Jutanugarn got the position when Ryu failed to finish solo third or better.

Sandra Gal, of Germany, tees off on the fourth hole during the second round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic golf tournament, Saturday, June 3, 2017, in Galloway Township, N.J.

"It could be a little bit of a distraction, but I kind of welcome everything because people want me to do well", said Kim, from South Korea.

"It felt good today to go out there and crush all of it and keep building momentum", Wie said.

However, she missed the cut on Saturday, leaving the top spot to be claimed by Jutanugarn, whose five career LPGA titles and one major were all won previous year. Last week: Shanshan Feng won the LPGA Volvik Championship.

"I really prepared for this summer", she said.

"I really didn't expect it right away, but I knew my game was better than a year ago". It's been really windy the last two days. "We'll continue. Whatever happens tomorrow happens, but I feel like my golf game is in a good place".

Sweden's Anna Nordqvist got off to a hot start in her bid for a third straight LPGA ShopRite Classic crown on Friday with a seven-under-par 64.

But, as the Kaiser poll shows, changing something people are used to - even if they don't love it - is far harder than it looks. Others, however, want to hew to a tough line on state flexibility, as well as Medicaid spending reductions and other issues.

The 28-year old Kim was making just her sixth start since returning from injury.

"I just love coming here", Kim said. "That's all I can really ask for". Anna Nordqvist has won the last two years and will try to join fellow Swede Annika Sorenstam as the only three-time victor.

She's trying to join fellow Swede Annika Sorenstam as the only three-time victor. "I'm still in it".

"We just couldn't get a rhythm, especially with some of these pins and the wind and everything", she said.

Brooke Henderson is the only Canadian to make the cut and is tied for eighth. U.S. Solheim Cup captain Juli Inkster shot a 2-under-par 69 on Sunday to finish at par 213, tied for 46th.

However, the group with Kim, Creamer, and Moriya Jutanugarn also had to deal with being put on the clock for falling too far behind the group in front of them.

Swede Annika Sorenstam was the first player to have the honour and was subsequently followed by Lorena Ochoa, Shin Jiyai, Ai Miyazato, Cristie Kerr, Tseng Ya-ni, Stacy Lewis, Park Inbee and Ko.

But healthy again, she pulled away with a closing two-under 69 for a comfortable victory at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club in Galloway.
