Nelly Korda started the final round of the LPGA Drive On Championship with a four-shot lead at Bradenton (Fla.) Country Club. After making eagle on the par-5 17th hole, however, she was one behind Lydia Ko with one hole remaining.

Ko’s steady play combined with a three-hole stretch for Korda in which she was four over were the culprits. (Ko, herself, just moments earlier, nearly made an albatross on the 17th hole but settled for a kick-in eagle.)

However, Korda’s approach on the final hole nearly found the bottom of the cup, ending only inches away for birdie to send the championship into a playoff with two of the LPGA’s biggest stars. It would be decided between Korda, looking for her ninth career victory, or Ko, who would qualify for the LPGA Hall of Fame at age 26 with a victory.

After making pars on the first playoff hole, Ko three-putted from 30 feet the second time around—missing a par putt from four feet—and Korda got up and down from behind the green to win. She collected the $262,500 first-place prize money payout from an overall purse of $1.75 million.

Ko won the season-opening LPGA event last week at Lake Nona, but this week was the tour’s first full-field event. It was Korda’s first LPGA victory win since the Pelican Women’s Championship in late 2022.

Megan Khang finished in third place, while Lucy Li and Ayaka Furue tied for fourth place.
