Meghan Duggan, a champion across women’s hockey, retires

In the midst of the U.S. women’s hockey national team fighting for better wages and equitable support, Meghan Duggan got on the phone with every player to explain what it was all about.

With the world championships on home ice weeks away and the stakes high, Duggan thought it was her duty as captain.

“When you think of a captain on your team and a leader on your team, you want someone that’s willing to do things that no one else is willing to do,” teammate Monique Lamoureux-Morando recalled.

The thing about history is that it never gets old. Once recorded, achievements live forever. Sei Young Kim arrived at Aronimink GC as a footnote in the legacy of the LPGA but left as a boldface name in the chapter on greatness after winning the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.

 

No longer will Kim be known as the best player without an LPGA major. Now, the only modifier that matters before her name are these words that will be spoken the next time she’s introduced on the first tee and at every event after:

 

“From Seoul, South Korea, winner of the 2020 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, Sei Young Kim.”

 

She is – now and forever – a major champion.

 

Kim’s near-flawless performance as she mastered Aronimink in a tournament-record 14-under-par 266, five strokes better than Inbee Park, was not so much validation of an already brilliant career, or even the culmination
