Sei Young Kim, Eyeing 1st Major, Leads by 2 at Women’s PGA | Sports News

By DAN GELSTON, AP Sports Writer

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. (AP) — Sei Young Kim has yet to splurge on the $1.5 million she won last year in the richest prize offered at a tournament in women’s golf.

“I’m just saving up for the future,” she said.

Winning the first major of her career just might be priceless. A 10-time LPGA Tour winner, the 27-year-old South Korean has the unwanted title of winningest active player without a major championship.

Kim went on another streaky run of birdies Saturday at Aronimink, shooting a 3-under 67 to hold the lead and positioning herself to put that label to rest at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.

Kim sits at 7-under 203, two strokes ahead of Brooke Henderson and Anna Nordqvist, and will try to win it Sunday on a rare early-morning tee time.

“I wouldn’t say I’m nervous, but I’m also excited about going

Sei Young Kim takes 2-shot lead at KPMG Women’s PGA Championship

Kim went on another streaky run of birdies at Aronimink in Newtown Square, Pa., shooting a 3-under 67 to hold the lead and positioning herself to put that label to rest at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.

Kim sits at 7-under 203, two strokes ahead of Brooke Henderson and Anna Nordqvist, and will try to win it Sunday on a rare early-morning tee time.

“I wouldn’t say I’m nervous, but I’m also excited about going into the final day,” Kim said.

The tournament was delayed three months because of the coronavirus pandemic, landing its final round smack on a packed sports Sunday. The PGA of America had to get creative with the tee times with NBC having other programming commitments on the weekend. Kim, Henderson and Nordqvist tee off at 8:49 a.m. and the last group goes off at 9:16 a.m. The TV window is noon to 2 p.m. on

The beauty of Butler vs. LeBron is that there’s an encore coming

The beauty of basketball comes often from its flow and form, with offensive players moving in unison to create a good shot, the ball zipping from one side to the other until it somehow finds the open shooter, the players on both sides seemingly attached by a string.

It can be a dance and, at its best, it can be a gorgeous thing.

But sometimes it’s boiled down to a basic form, me against you, my best against your best, stop me if you can.

That may be the enduring image of the NBA Finals, now headed to a Game 6 on Sunday night.

Jimmy Butler vs. LeBron James, with a bunch of other guys on the court. Stars being stars, big shots followed by bigger shots and, as James said after Butler and the Miami Heat beat him and the Lakers on Friday, “that’s the beauty of the game.”

Building that houses iconic Tacoma clothing store, barbershop to be razed for apartments

The building that houses two iconic businesses in Tacoma’s Hilltop is scheduled for demolition to make way for new apartments.

The current location of both the clothing store Mr. Mac Ltd. as well as Sam and Terry’s barbershop will be torn down.

Sam and Terry’s nearly packed up shop in 2018 but was purchased by the Tacoma Ministerial Alliance to rescue it from closure. The city’s first Black-owned barbershop was founded in 1958 by Sam Daniels and Larry Terry. Daniels died in 2013.

Sharing the same building on the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Way and Earnest Brazill Street, Mr. Mac Ltd. was run by Morris “Mr. Mac” McCollum for more than 50 years. McCollum died in 2017.

An event is set this weekend to celebrate his life and sell off much of the store’s merchandise, with proceeds going to the Tacoma Ministerial Alliance which also now owns

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. – Sunday should fit all fandom as the leaderboard at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship is both eclectic and intriguing through 54 holes.
