Nelly Korda shot a 5-under 67, on Saturday at La Reserva Club de Sotogrande, to overcome a seven-shot deficit on her sister Jessica Korda (77) and claim victory at the Aramco Team Series on the Ladies European Tour.
Nelly Korda made two bogeys but offset those dropped shots with seven birdies to finish on 13 under, three shots clear of her older sister, Jessica Korda, and Spain’s Ana Pelaez Trivino and France’s Pauline Roussin.
“I haven’t won this year, so it feels nice to get a win under my belt but I’m also very sad as it wasn’t the day Jess was expecting,” said Nelly Korda. “I guess we were hoping for a bit more of a battle going down the stretch, but it’s golf and that sometimes happens.”
Jessica Korda opened with consecutive birdies Saturday but struggled the rest of the way, making seven bogeys and a double, in addition to two other birdies.
The Korda sisters also won the Team portion of what’s being called the “Ladies LIV” event.
