LPGA Founders Cup report: What happened at Wildfire Golf Club?

South Korean Jin Young Ko shot a flawless 7-under-par 65 on Sunday to finish ahead of the likes of the Korda sisters and Carlota Ciganda.

Three front-nine birdies and four on the back saw her reel in 54-hole leader Yu Liu and claim top spot.

There were several players in with a chance of victory coming down the stretch, with bothΒ Korda siblingsΒ finishing tied-2nd and almost forcing a play-off.

Jessica recorded two eagles and two birdies in her final eight holes and, while her 64 was the round of the day, it wasn’t quite enough.

Ciganda meanwhile picked up her second top-5 finish of the season and collected more valuable Solheim Cup points as she also finished T2, while England’s Charlotte Thomas finished 6th.

LPGA Founders Cup report: Talking point

Last week, the LPGA Tour launched their #DriveOn campaign which is aiming to help grow the female game.

It will look to encourage girls to take up the game whilst drawing on the sport’s history and looking to the future.

The move has received a lot of support and is a wonderful initiative that could massively benefit the ladies game.
