Miami, (APP – UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News – 21st Nov, 2022 ) :New Zealander Lydia Ko won the season-ending LPGA Tour Championship on Sunday, holding on for a two-stroke win over Ireland’s Leona Maguire that also secured her the player of the year award.

Ko, who also won the tournament in 2014, bagged the record $2 million prize money for the win at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Fla., with his two last-16 finishes in stormy conditions.

The 19th win of the tour for Ko also secured her back-to-back Vare Trophy awards, given to the player with the lowest scoring average of the season.

It’s been a real return to form this year for Ko, who started the season with a win at Boca Rio in January and then took the BMW Championship in South Korea in October.

“This year has been an amazing year. I could never really ask for more to win so early in the season and then to have won in Korea and then to win the last event of the year,” said Ko, who plans to get married during the off season.

“I couldn’t have drawn it better. There have been so many exciting things in my life that have happened.” Ko’s second Player of the Year award follows her triumph in 2015 and the 25-year-old could now secure her place in the LPGA Hall of Fame next season.

“This will be my last win as a single lady. So I wanted to do this for my family,” she said. “This has been one of the most consistent and solid years I’ve had.” South Korean Ko finished the tournament at 17-under 271 for the week, with Maguire’s even-par round of 72 leaving her 15 under.

Maguire entered the final round with Ko on the back of a superb round of 9-over 63, but could not reproduce that form.

Bogeys on the fifth and 14th ultimately cost the Irishwoman and her birdie on the 17th proved to be too little, too late.

“It was an amazing week, a really good way to round off the season and if you had offered me second at the start of the week I would have taken it with both hands,” Maguire said.

“It would have been nice to have played a little better today, but it was really tough out there. The wind was strong, it was cold, the greens were tricky. I didn’t play as well as I did on Saturday, but I grafted and had some key ups and downs to keep me in him.” Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist finished third after shooting 67 on Sunday.

England’s Georgia Hall also shot 67 to share fourth place along with South Korea’s Lee6 Jeong-eun.
