The victory at the 2017 Shoprite LPGA Classic is the fifth on the LPGA Tour for In-Kyung Kim, who most recently won the 2016 Reignwood LPGA Classic. She spent the better part of the end of 2016 and beginning of 2017 recovering from falling down the stairs. Her start in New Jersey was only her sixth of the year.

Hole Description

Hole01
A short but tough opening hole. A lengthy bunker and O.B. protect the right side with native grasses and mounds protecting the left side. A cautious approach to the green will need to be negotiated since the green slopes away from you.
Hole02
Be careful not to get distracted by the views of Reeds Bay and the Atlantic City skyline. A lengthy par 4 that can play like a par 5 with the prevailing wind in your face. The tee shot must avoid O.B. and fairway bunkers on the right. The approach shot must negotiate a waste environment sensitive area to the left. Don't overshoot the green here with trouble to the right and behind the green.
Hole03
A relatively short par 5 that is a great birdie opportunity with a good drive. Favor the right side of the faily off the tee. Lay up to the left to leave a short approach or go for the green with a long iron or fairway utility. The green is undulating so keep an eye on the daily pin position.
Hole04
A tricky par 4 that requires a tee shot in the fairway left of the center. The approach is to a small two tiered green so accuracy is a premium on this hole.
Hole05
A short par 4 that doesn't require you to use a drive off the tee, but puts a premium on accuracy. Get it in the fairway and you have a short approach to a very generous green that is well guarded by greenside bunkers.
Hole06
A long par 4 playing downhill into the prevailing wind off of Reeds Bay. The tee shot should favor the right center of the fairway as the fairway slopes to the left. The approach shot is played to a pronounce two tiered green with bunkers and the bay protecting any errant shots.
Hole07
This lengthy par 3 plays uphill and is much harder than it appears. An accurate tee shot is a must to this well guarded green to the right, left and rear of the green.
Hole08
A short par 4 requiring an accurate tee shot to the right center of the fairway. Marshland guards the entire right side and behind the green. The approach shot is a delicate shot to an elevated green that slopes from front to back.
Hole09
A par 5 with a generous fairway awaits your tee shot. Be careful with the second shot, deep cross bunkers guard against errant or short shots. Once you have negotiated your second shot, a deep bunker guards the right side of the green, while the left and back side is protected with natural grass mounds. The green slopes severly to the right and away from you. Par is a good score here.
