PHOENIX (AP) Sei Young Kim matched Annika Sorenstam's LPGA Tour scoring record of 27 under, closing with a 10-under 62 on Sunday at Desert Ridge for a five-stroke victory in the JTBC Founders Cup.

Sorenstam set the mark in 2001 at nearby Moon Valley, shooting a record 59 in the second round. Kim also matched the tournament record of 62 set Thursday by Mi Hyang Lee.

Kim missed a chance to break the marks when her 18-foot birdie try on the par-4 18th slid left.

After two late bogeys Saturday left her a stroke behind third-round leader Eun-Hee Ji, Kim played the first 11 holes in 7 under. The South Korean player eagled No. 11, hitting a 5-wood from 241 yards to 3 feet to take a six-stroke lead.

Ko shot 65.
