He was four under through 13 holes but dropped shots on 14, 15 and 17 and bounced back for his last-hole heroics.

The 17-year-old Korean, who started his final round with a commanding 11-shot lead ensured he would become only the third player in the ADT history to win three times in a single season when he signed off with a one-over-par 73 to clinch the title by nine shots.


Korda, Kang lead the way in Shanghai

After 54 holes at the 2019 Buick LPGA Shanghai, two Americans have pulled clear of the field. Playing in the final group, Jessica Korda and Danielle Kang both returned rounds of 6-under 66 on Saturday at Qizhong Garden Golf Club. Korda leads the field at a tournament-record -15, with Kang just one stroke behind at -14.

Korda carded eight birdies on Saturday, including sticking her approach for birdie at No. 18 to 3 feet, to pull one stroke ahead of Kang. Despite the low numbers on her scorecard, Korda said she’s been battling through some swing issues since arriving in Shanghai.

Thai star Kiradech Aphibarnrat birdied three of his closing five holes for a third straight 3-under 69 to move into tied seventh place at the US$9.75 million THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES on Saturday.

After dropping bogeys on 10 and 13 which erased his gains on the third and fourth holes, the burly Kiradech bounced back strongly to finish his round with birdies on the 14th, 15th and 18th holes, missing a putt for eagle on the last.


Nelly Korda wins Lacoste Ladies Open de France

Nelly Korda shot a four-under 67 to win the Lacoste Ladies Open de France for her first Ladies European Tour title.

“Conditions were tough, but I tried to stay level headed and I tried to keep my head down and make as many birdies as possible,” said the 21-year-old from Bradenton, Florida, whom, together with her sister Jessica, was the joint leading points’ scorer for the United States Solheim Cup team at Gleneagles last weekend.
