Kim keeps her nerve to claim Women's PGA Championship title

South Korea's Kim Sei-Young won her first ever Major title at the Women's PGA Championship, beating compatriot Inbee Park by five shots.

Kim's fourth round 63 was the lowest final round ever recorded at the event - as well as equalling the lowest-ever round - and left her with a total of 14-under-par.

England's Charley Hull finished in a tie for seventh place on one under, five shots better off than Mel Reid in 30th.

"This golf course is really challenging," said Kim. "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."
