The 20-year old American star signed for a final-round card comprised of 15 pars, two birdies, and one eagle en route to a 72-hole score of 13 under, two strokes ahead of Australia’s Minjee Lee (66) who finished solo second at 11 under.

“Truthfully, I cannot put it into words. It still hasn’t hit,” said Korda, who hit 13 of 14 fairways on both Saturday and Sunday.

“It’s definitely one of the best days of my entire life. I can finally check that off of my list, winning an LPGA event, something that I dreamed of ever since I started playing.”
