A final round of 65 including a final nine of 30, has given Jessica Korda her second victory of the 2014 season and her third LPGA Tour event overall at the Airbus LPGA Classic in Mobile in Alabama.
Korda’s round was the best of the final day and swept her past Anna Nordqvist who she defeated by one with a further shot back to Charley Hull, Catriona Matthew and Michelle Wie.
It was the 7th win by an American in 13 events in season 2014, reversing the trend of recent years where Internationals have been the dominant force.
Katherine Kirk finished as the leading Australian in 26th position.
The LPGA Tour will now play the Shoprite LPGA Classic in New Jersey beginning this Friday.
