Sei Young Kim leads KPMG Women’s PGA, but unusual Sunday awaits all

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.

There’s a multiple major champion, a leader in search of her first, popular players, top-10 players and fringe players. You’ve got a 7-time major winner who ranks 143rd in driving distance and the longest hitter on tour – who happens to be ranked 712th in the world.

You also have a pristine venue in Aronimink Golf Club that hasn’t allowed anything lower than a 5-under round this week and hasn’t receive a single complaint.

Sei Young Kim (67) holds a two-stroke lead over Brooke Henderson (65) and Anna Nordqvist (68) through three rounds in the women’s third major of the season. With a bogey at the last on Saturday, Kim stands at 7 under par.

Stock markets aren’t really out of line in any direction, to hear one strategist tell it.

“We haven’t got a big qualm with the market at this point in time. I don’t see really significant, anomalous valuations in the market, and that takes me to this idea of staying invested, being diversified, but not being too tactically adventurous,” said Joseph Little, global chief strategist at HSBC Global Asset Management.

Little added the Nasdaq Composite (COMP) isn’t as stretched as it was during the dot-com bubble. HSBC is overweight global stocks, particularly for Northern Asian emerging markets that are leveraged to China’s recovery.
