The record on everyone's mind is the lowest score in relation to par. That score is -19, and the record is held by five different women:
- Dottie Pepper, 1999 Kraft Nabisco Championship
- Karen Stupples, 2004 Weetabix Women's British Open
- Cristie Kerr, 2010 Wegmans LPGA Championship
- Yani Tseng, 2011 Wegmans LPGA Championship
- Inbee Park, 2015 KPMG Women's PGA Championship
That's the one everybody's buzzing about... but there's more.
The winning score can also be an aggregate score, which simply means it's the total of strokes taken, regardless of what par is. That record is 267 and is held by only one woman:
- Betsy King, 1992 Mazda LPGA Championship
This definitely counts as a powerplay performance.
And of course, with a win In Gee would be only the second player to make both of her first two LPGA wins majors. The other woman is none other than Se Ri Pak, who did it as a rookie in 1998 (US Open and LPGA Championship). In Gee wouldn't break that record, but that's heady company -- and she's already got Rookie of the Year pretty well locked up, just like Se Ri did.
Of course, making history is never a sure thing. The weather predictions for the final round aren't looking that good and, as tight as the Evian Resort Golf Club is, In Gee could have her hands full just holding on to her lead, which is four shots to start the day.
The coverage is split -- from 8am-noon ET on GC, then from noon-1:30pm ET on NBC. I have trouble believing it will be live, since the prudent thing to do is send them out early in threesomes off split tees. But even if it isn't live, we could see history today.
That's certainly worth watching in either case.
