Six groups set to tee off after the leaders in final round of KPMG Women’s PGA

NEWTOWN SQUARE, PA. - Leader Sei Young Kim will start the KPMG PGA Championship on Sunday at 8:49 am with Brooke Henderson and Anna Nordqvist. It's an exceptionally early start time for any professional tournament, regardless of a major. But that's not even the strangest part.
Six groups will actually tee off after Kim, three behind her on the top nine and three more on the back nine. The unusual setting is due to a network TV window that ends at 2 p.m. ET, before NASCAR on NBC.
"It's definitely going to be a bit strange," said Nordqvist, "but I have a feeling we started the horseshoe early for the final laps because of daylight all year round."
RESULTS: KPMG Women's PGA Championship
Kim, a 10-time LPGA winner seeking her first LPGA title, leads the tournament by two strokes at 7 under 203. All three players in the 9 o'clock group who follow her are 11 over for the tournament. Of those who tee off after the leaders, 8 over is the next score for Kim.
The seven-time major winner Inbee Park starts at 8:38 a.m. She is three behind Kim and looking for a fourth women’s PGA title.
"I'm not really a morning person," said Park, "so it's always very difficult to get up in the morning ... I probably won't get much sleep."
Famer Laura Davies' World Golf Hall is in the last group of number 1 at 9:22 am. Earlier this week, Davies recalled winning the Evian Masters on the ninth green, which is a shuttle ride from the clubhouse.
"It's happened before and it's definitely not ideal," said Davies. "I'm not sure how this will work if someone takes a run and ends up in ninth place."
The ninth and 18th green sit next to each other at the Aronimink Golf Club. It would have to be a monumental run for someone to win it in ninth place as the top-scoring players who tee off of the last nine are 4 over 11 strokes behind Kim.
It looks like the game will continue long after a champion is decided.
