Ko Jin-young powers to LPGA Founders Cup title

Ko Jin-young powers to LPGA Founders Cup title

Ko, who seized the tournament lead with birdies at 14, 15 and 16, was on the practice green keeping warmed up for a possible playoff with Liu, who arrived at the 72nd hole at 22-under but made her only bogey of the day to cap a two-under par 70 for a 21-under total of 267.

Jessica Korda's 64 was tied for the day's best round, as Australia's Su-Hyun Oh also shot an 8-under round, finishing the tournament tied for 18th at 14-under 274.

Nelly Korda, victor of the women's Australian Open in February, joined the group sharing second with a final-round 66.

"It was unbelievable week for me", Liu said.

"I'm not very comfortable and not very used to playing in the last group", admitted 23-year-old Liu said. "Just wasn't as control with my putting on the last few holes, so I didn't make any putts at the end".

"Obviously, playing pain-free. It shows", Jessica Korda said.

The win is Ko's third career LPGA victory and second since becoming an LPGA Member in 2018. "I'm so grateful and thankful to be back that whatever I did this week I'm just going to be happy with". "Really good for third win in the States, so I'm really happy".

She was then required to wait close to 30 minutes before the title was officially hers as the closing two groups finished their rounds. I just tried (to play) shot by shot and not thinking about the future, just, like, now.

Ko gained access to the LPGA Tour by winning a jointly-sanctioned event on the Korean LPGA Tour in 2017 but it was her win at the 2018 Australian Open at Kooyonga Golf Club in Adelaide that brought her worldwide attention. Also my manager and my parents, my caddie, all people say, You can. So I got lots of confidence for this year.

English rookie Charlotte Thomas finished tied for sixth on 19 under par in her first LPGA event in the United States, the Founders Cup in Arizona. "Always special here in Phoenix, but I couldn't today".

The LEADERS Top 10 competition awards a $100,000 bonus to the LPGA player with the most top-10 finishes through the completion of the event held immediately prior to the CME Group Tour Championship.
