Golfer Ko Jin-young once again won the Cognizant Founders Cup in New Jersey on Sunday.
It was her third time winning the tournament after 2019 and 2021 and her 15th career victory on the LPGA Tour.
In the fourth and final round of the tournament at the Upper Montclair Country Club, Ko shot a 5-under with five birdies and no bogey and tied with Korean-Australian Lee Min-jee at 13-under 275.
The two players then advanced to a playoff, where Ko posted a par to beat Lee, who only made one bogey.
Ko had been in a slump since she suffered a wrist injury last summer and lost the world No.1 spot when she was forced to miss some tournaments.
But with the two victories of this season at Sunday's event and the HSBC Women's World Championship in Singapore in March, she seems to be back on track.
She ranked third in last week's Rolex Women's World Golf Rankings.
