Hannah Green wins in the play-off, new top 20 for Perrine Delacour

In a completely crazy end to the tournament, Australian Hannah Green pocketed her third career LPGA title in the play-off. Perrine Delacour kept her place in the top 20 despite a roller coaster-like day.


The first edition of JM Eagle LA Championship will be remembered. Leader with two moves ahead before the last lap, Cheyenne Knight failed to hold its position. Despite a difficult start to the game, the American came back in par after the 14th. However, she destroyed her chances on the next one with a crippling double and a last card of 73 (+2).

Conversely, the mid-term leader Aditya Ashok And Xiyu Lin returned a very good 67 (-4) to take the lead of the tournament. The two Asian players both recorded a birdie on the difficult par 3 of 18 to conclude their day. It was without counting on the runner-up after the Moving Day, Hannah Green. Very patient for 14 holes with as many pars, the Australian got her first birdie on 15 before signing a second too on 18 to snatch a play-off with three.

And it was the latter who won the bet thanks to a new birdie on the second hole of sudden death. The winner of KPMG Women’s PGA Championship in 2019 thus achieved its third success on the LPGAthe first since September 2019 and his victory at Cambia Portland Classic.

Ayaka Furue and will have believed

Other players were not far from hanging the play-off. behind in the standings, Ayaka Furue signed a magnificent 65 (-6) including three consecutive birdies to finish. But the Japanese finally fails at one point in fourth position in the company of Ruoning Yin. The 20-year-old Chinese was not far from winning a second title this season, but she scuttled herself with her two bogeys at 17 and 18.

The world number 1 Nelly Korda took sixth place with Hae Ran Ryu And Cheyenne Knight two head lengths.

Perrine Delacour 17th

Perrine Delacour will have known everything in this fourth round. At +2 after 11 holes including an ugly triple on 10, the Habs completely reversed the trend with five consecutive birdies. But the 29-year-old golfer conceded two new bogeys on the last two holes for a final card recorded in 70 (-1). 17th, Perrine Delacour signs his third top 20 in the last four tournaments.
