Nanna Koerstz Madsen Breaks Scoring Record in Third Win to Earn Promotion to LPGA

Nanna Koerstz Madsen (Copenhagen, Denmark) completed her dream season on the Symetra Tour with an emphatic third victory that will send her to the LPGA Tour on a “Battlefield Promotion” on Sunday at Brook-Lea Country Club. She fired a 6-under, 66 to break the 72-hole Symetra Tour scoring record and finished the weekend at 22-under, 266. The previous scoring mark was 19-under, set by Jennifer Song in 2010, so Koerstz Madsen is the first player in Tour history to crack 20-under.

Koerstz Madsen posted rounds of 66-67-67-66 to win by seven shots. She made 26 birdies and just four bogeys on the week. The first-place payout of $22,500 moves her from second back into the top spot on the Volvik Race for the Card money list with $85,456 earned in ten starts.


Rookie Nelly Korda takes shock lead at Marathon Classic

Rookie Nelly Korda has a chance to do what her older sister Jessica hasn’t been able to do since 2015: win on the LPGA Tour. Korda leads heading into Sunday’s finale at the Marathon Classic presented by Owens Corning and O-I after a 5-under-par 66. Korda was 4-under par through her first seven holes before bogeying the par-4 9th and running off a string of pars.

She birdied her final two holes of the day (the back-to-back par 5s on No’s 17 and 18) to pull ahead by two heading into Sunday.


Nanna Koerstz Madsen Builds Five-Shot Lead with LPGA Promotion in Sight at Danielle Downey Credit Union Classic

Nanna Koerstz Madsen (Copenhagen, Denmark) moved 18 holes away from a third Symetra Tour win, which gets her a “Battlefield Promotion” to the LPGA, on Saturday at Brook-Lea Country Club. A victory could also improve her chances of receiving a captain’s pick (from Annika Sorenstam) to play for Team Europe in the Solheim Cup. Koerstz Madsen also has a chance to break the Symetra Tour all-time 72-hole scoring record, which is held by Jennifer Song, who posted a 19-under at the Tate & Lyle Players Championship in 2010. Koerstz Madsen has made 19 birdies and just three bogeys through 54 holes with rounds of 66-67-67.

Koerstz Madsen already has wins at the Symetra Classic and the Fuccillo Kia Classic of NY.

Trish Johnson Completes Wire-to-Wire Victory at Senior LPGA Championship

Trish Johnson (Bristol, England) completed a wire-to-wire victory at the inaugural Senior LPGA Championship on Wednesday on the Pete Dye Course at French Lick Resort. She turned in a final-round 73 to finish at 4-under, 212 for the 54-hole event, three shots clear of Michele Redman (Minneapolis, Minnesota).

“I’m often asked what my favorite course in the world is and I always say St. Andrews, but I think this place (Pete Dye Course at French Lick Resort) has taken over,” said Johnson, who has now won twice on the course. “It feels fantastic, this is the reason you play golf to try and win something like this. It is going to be a very, very fun evening.”


Trish Johnson Posts 67 to Build Four-Shot Lead at Senior LPGA Championship

The first time Trish Johnson (Virginia Water, Great Britain) pulled up to the Pete Dye Course at Frech Lick Resort, she knew instantly that the place was special. Johnson posted a 5-under, 67 on Monday in the first-round to build a four-stroke lead at the inaugural Senior LPGA Championship. On a day that featured wind gusts peaking at 33-miles-an-hour, Johnson handled the difficult conditions masterfully and made seven birdies.

Carolyn Hill (Saint Petersburg, Florida) is in second place at 1-under, 71 and Marilyn Lovander (Punta Gorda, Florida) is in third place at even-par. World Golf Hall-of-Famer Betsy King is in a three-way tie for fourth. 


Katherine Kirk squeezes out long overdue win at Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic

After a 2-under-par 70 Sunday, Australian Katherine Kirk put the finishing touches on her third LPGA Tour victory at the inaugural Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic. Kirk, who went 152 LPGA Tour starts between her last victory and Sunday, birdied the 72nd hole to finish at 22-under par, the lowest four-round tournament total in her career.

“To make that putt (on 18) was huge,” said Kirk. “All wins are good. Winning out here is hard, and it’s gotten a lot harder out here since I first did it, that’s for sure. There is so much talent out here now and it makes it so much harder to win. I think I’m the 15th-oldest player on Tour, so if you’re looking at age it’s more in favour of the younger generation these days… but hard work pays off. I’m grateful for the opportunity to still be playing, and I still love it.”

Golf Channel will have live coverage all three days from 4:00-6:00 p.m.

By making par on the third playoff hole, Lee pockets the second largest winner’s payout on Tour of $30,000 to move from 23rd to fourth on the new Volvik Race for the Card money list. She has now earned $47,990 in 13 starts.
