No matter what happens at this week's LPGA Tour event in New Jersey, either Ariya Jutanugarn or So Yeon Ryu is projected to move to the top of the rankings. She almost won this tournament as an amateur in 2004 but missed a putt on the final green and wound up tying for second behind Cristie Kerr.

"I really prepared for this summer and I really didn't expect it right away but I knew my game was better than past year, so that's really all I could ask for", she said in a greenside interview, a broad smile on her face after being drenched in champagne.

South Korean Kim In-kyung has won for the fifth time in her LPGA career.

India's Aditi Ashok got off to a fine start with a one-under 70 that put her at tied-28th in the first round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic golf here. The winds picked up in the afternoon and the greens started to get bumpy with a lot more people walking around.

But Creamer faltered Sunday.

She's played just half a dozen tournaments in 2017, but says she has recovered well.

She had three birdies and one bogey in her two-under par effort for an 11-under par total of 202.

"I definitely want to become number one at some point, and I'm working really hard for that as well". "Of course, like everybody, want to win the first tournament and it's still my big goal, but I just want to focus what I have to do out there". "I hit it a lot closer today, which felt good". "I am going to take off next week".

She closed out her round with back-to-back birdies and said she's feeling "even stronger" after a winter spent rehabbing injuries suffered in a freak fall down some stairs.

But things did not go well for her on the Bay Course at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club, and Ryu, saw her streak of consecutive made cuts end at 64 on Saturday when she shot her second straight 3-over-par 74. 16 and 17, but just got a little mucky. "Was really tricky and challenge out there, but I gave my best".

Kim, now a five-time victor on the LPGA, said she didn't know where she stood until the 54th hole. Korda, 18, is the younger sister of four-time LPGA victor Jessica Korda.

Stacy Lewis followed an opening 67 with a 72 to drop into a tie for 19th at 3 under.

However, she missed the cut on Saturday, leaving the top spot to be claimed by Jutanugarn, whose five career LPGA titles and one major were all won previous year.
