(CARLSBAD, Calif.) – Playing aggressive and confident all week, adidas Golf Tour Staff professional Jessica Korda battled back on the final day of the Women’s Australian Open in Melbourne to take the last spot in a six-person playoff and ultimately capture her first LPGA Tour victory. Korda closed with a 1-over 74 to finish at 3-under, but it was her 25-foot birdie putt on the second sudden-death playoff hole that sealed the win.
