Nelly Korda Returns To World No. 1 After Fir Hills Seri Pak Championship Win

America’s Nelly Korda delivered a stunning playoff victory over Ryann O’Toole at the Fir Hills Seri Pak Championship. Korda drained a 12-foot putt for a birdie at the first extra hole at Palos Verdes Golf Club in California to take the title and return to No. 1 in the world rankings. 

Korda, aged 25, closed with a 2-under 69 to reach 9-under. It her second victory this season after claiming the Drive On Championship in January and 10th career LPGA TOUR title.

O’Toole poured in a par putt from 20 feet at the final green in regulation play to sign for a 5-under 66 on Sunday. The American grazed the lip of the cup with her birdie attempt from 15 feet in the playoff.

Australia’s Gabriela Ruffels took a share of third place with Alison Lee at 8-under. Ruffels became the first ever Australian to win the coveted US Women’s Amateur Championship in 2019. Last year, Ruffels staked three victories on the Epson Tour to earn her full LPGA TOUR card this season.
