The Open Championship captured the attention of the golf world this week, but there were other events taking place in the world of golf. The Marathon Classic took place on the LPGA Tour, while the other event on the PGA Tour for those not in the Open, The Barbasol Championship, took place.

In-Kyung Kim wins the Marathon Classic

At the start of the final round of the Marathon Classic, In-Kyung Kim was two-strokes behind Kelly Norda. However, Norda was never a factor as she shot 3-over par 74 and finished at 12-under for the tournament in a tie for eighth place. Kim started the tournament on fire, birding six of the first nine holes, never looking back as she shot an 8-under par 63.

She won the tournament at 21-under, 4-shots better than Lexi Thompson who came in second place for the fifth time this year.

This was Kim's second victory of the season on the LPGA Tour as she won the ShopRite LPGA Classic last month. This also put her with fellow South Korean So Yeon Ryu as the only players to win twice on tour this year. It was also Kim's sixth career LPGA Tour victory.

Rookie Grayson Murray with the Barbasol

Rookie Grayson Murray was on the green of the 18th hole with a one-shot lead over veteran Chad Collins at the Barbasol Championship. He had to two-putt from nearly 50 feet away in order to win his first PGA Tour event.

Murray hit it five feet away from the hole and then proceeded to make the clutch five-foot par putt to win.

Both Murray and Collins shot 3-under 68s in the final round with Murray edging him 20-under par to 19-under par for the tournament. This victory capped off a difficult stretch for Murray who only had one top-20, 6 missed cuts, and a withdrawal in the 19 events he has played in since January.

Nanna Koerstz Madsen earns LPGA Tour card

Nanna Koerstz Madsen won the Danielle Downey Credit Union Class on the Symetra Tour to earn her LPGA Tour card. Maden shot a course record 22-under par, shattering the previous record of 19-under par set by Jennifer Song back in 2010. The 22-year-old Dane easily won the event by seven-strokes in what was her third victory on the Symetra Tour this year.

Sam Ryder earns his PGA Tour card

Sam Ryder won the Pinnacle Bank Championship for his first win on the Web.com Tour and in the process earned his PGA Tour card. On the third day of the event, he set a course record 9-under par 62 and easily won the event shooting a score of 21-under par for the tournament, 8-strokes ahead of anyone else.
