With Kim entering the final round holding an eight-shot lead, the only question was whether she would continue to tear up Thornberry Creek's Legends Championship Course to overtake Sorenstam's record.
The 25-year-old from South Korea opened with a 63, followed with a 65 and shot a 64 on Saturday to reach 24 under, which tied Sorenstam's 54-hole record in 2003 at the Mizuno Classic in Japan, a 54-hole event.
Kim actually has a 27 under par total for 72 holes which she recorded when winning the JTBC Founders Cup in 2016. No one, and I mean no one ever dreamed there would be this many birdies but the Oneida Nation is a generous bunch and there was nothing wrong with witnessing golf history this week, re-written by one Sei Young Kim.
Katherine Kirk rallied back from a disappointing opening ten holes to birdie four holes late in her round and although ten shots from the leader she is just two shots out of second place and in a share of 6th place and so a good round tomorrow could yield another great finish at Thornberry Creek.

For all the birdies, Kim set the LPGA Tour record with a par on the final hole to finish at 257. "When someone plays that good, she deserves to win". She obviously knows how to win. Kim earned her full time status card on the LPGA Tour after finishing tied for ninth at the 2014 LPGA Qualifying Tournament.
The New Zealander took 33 putts for the round and hit only five of 14 fairways and 14 greens in regulation. "Then I set my goals, just kept relaxed - except the last three holes I couldn't control the nerves because it was nearly done, but I finished really good". The only mistake she made in the tournament was a double bogey on the 17th hole in the second round.
Torres made seven birdies against just one bogey for her 66 on Sunday.
Kim began the final round with an eight-shot lead and played magnificent golf all day. She couldn't keep pace, however, and made a double bogey on the par-5 15th by hitting one shot in the water and another in a hazard. I was very patient.
During her first season on the LPGA Tour, Kim won three tournaments to earn the Tour's Rookie of the Year award.
