Jessica Korda claimed a dramatic play-off victory to win the LPGA Tour’s Tournament of Champions in Florida.

Kang was the overnight leader by two shots and hit a final round of 68.

Korda then sank a 25-foot putt birdie on the first play-off hole to beat fellow American Kang to the victory and claim her sixth LPGA title.

“It’s amazing,” said Korda. “It’s been a crazy week.”

Korda and her sister Nelly, who was third on 22 under, are the daughters of Czech former tennis player Petr Korda.

England’s Georgia Hall shot a 66 to finish on 11 under, while compatriot Bronte Law’s 63 helped her to eight under.

Mel Reid, Hall’s compatriot, shot a final round 70 to end the tournament on seven under.
