MOBILE, Alabama (AP) ― Jessica Korda won the Airbus LPGA Classic on Sunday for her second victory of the year, birdieing four of the last five holes to break out of a tight pack.
Korda made a breaking 15-foot birdie putt on the par-4 18th for a 7-under 65 and a one-stroke victory over Anna Nordqvist.
Also the winner in the season-opening event in the Bahamas, Korda played the back nine in 6-under 30 to finish at 20-under 268 on The Crossings course at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail’s Magnolia Grove complex.
Scott takes Colonial
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) ― Adam Scott was a late entry into Colonial because he wanted to play while ranked No. 1 in the world.
Scott will stay on top after a comeback victory at Hogan’s Alley. He made a 7-foot birdie putt on the third hole of a playoff Sunday to beat Jason Dufner.
“It’s so satisfying in so many ways to get it done,” Scott said. “It’s a good feeling, and maybe some validation.”
