Nelly Korda closed with a 69 on Sunday at Lake Nona Golf & Country Club to claim a three-shot win at the Gainbridge LPGA. The win gives the Korda sisters back-to-back victories on the LPGA, as Jessica won the season-opening Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions.
The Sorenstam sisters were the last to pull off such a feat, back in 2000; Annika won the Welch’s/Circle K Championship on March 13, and Charlotta won the Standard Register PING on March 19.
The win was the fourth of Nelly’s young career, but first on home soil. For the victory, Korda earned $300,000 and will move to No. 1 in the Race to the CME Globe.
