  • Social media reacts to 18th hole BACKBOARD at ANA Inspiration

The South Korean deliberately sent her second shot into the fencing, then took her drop before holing out her eagle chip to send her into a playoff.

But Korda, daughter of former Australian Open tennis champion Petr Korda, saw her game become a little ragged around the turn as she mixed three bogeys with two birdies in an up-and-down five-hole stretch, with Henderson matching her two at the 11th to stay tied for the lead.

Korda, who had actually led after every round, had actually looked poised to declare a first major success when she stepped onto the 18th tee with a one shot lead however a couple of minutes later on discovered herself in playoff.

Lee pitched in from long range for par on the 16th, dropped a shot on the next hole and appeared to be out of it until her chip from behind the 18th green rammed against the pin and dropped for eagle and a 5-under 67. Henderson then made birdie to make it a three-way playoff. Lee, 29, admitted that this was her gameplan.

The tournament is normally played in balmy April, but was rescheduled and played without fans because of the pandemic. "And they told me just to go for it and come home soon".

I was really pleased with the energy we had from our sideline, but when that's the only thing you're hearing, it is eerie. Akers, a second-round draft pick, started the game, but it was Brown, a sixth-year pro, who got the most carries.

"When I had practice rounds, I had practiced that shot, so it was a definite for me to use the space there. It must have been a bit of luck that helped me". Henderson and Korda had traded the lead on the back nine, Henderson falling back with a double-bogey at the 13th.

However, unlike the first meeting, when Denis Shapovalov outduelled Sebastian Korda in the first round of the US Open, and despite one or the other being on top of the leaderboard all afternoon, neither Brooke Henderson nor Nelly Korda, Sebastian's sister, were able to win on Sunday. Korda couldn't get close enough with a wedge after having to lay up.

Henderson was one shot behind on the 18th, her ball sitting up in the rough, when she hit 5-wood that came out flat and was running hot until it disappeared under the blue bunting.

Henderson drove into the right rough on the 13th and 6-iron in the wrong place _ right again, with a bunker guarding the front right pin. Both Korda and Henderson could only manage pars in the playoff hole while Lee putted a five-footer to clinch the title. "Today's players are so talented that they would find a way to deal with an island green", she said. "So it took me awhile to kind of get my rhythm going". Lee, who started the final round two shots behind co-leaders Brooke M. Henderson of Canada and Nelly Korda of the United States, got off to a quick start by adding her first birdie of the day on the par-4 second. "I definitely played really well this week, which is a really nice feeling and it gives me confidence moving forward", she said.
