Lee wins ANA Inspiration play-off, Maguire shares 18th

Major affair After brother makes U.S. Open tennis debut Nelly Korda leads ANA

Ko finished in sixth place with $160,000 on Monday (NZT) as South Korea's Mirim won a three-way play-off with Canada's Brooke Henderson and American Nelly Korda for the title.

Lee Mi-rim poses for a photo with her trophy after winning the ANA Inspiration in a sudden-death playoff at the Dinah Shore course at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California on Sunday.

The South Korean's third chip-in of a remarkable round was enough to force extra holes when Korda missed a tricky putt for birdie and the outright win as she signed for a three-under 69, while Henderson was another to take advantage of the wall at the last and got up and down for birdie. With a victory, Lee took home prize money of $465,000 and her first-ever major title on the LPGA Tour.

Back on 18th for the first playoff hole Lee once again relied on her wedge chipping to within five feet and making a nervy putt for birdie with Henderson and Korda both carding pars. Korda, the daughter of former Australian Open victor Petr, hit her third bogey of the day on the 12th, giving Henderson the overall lead at 15 under. American Lexi Thompson (69) finished outright fourth at 13 under, a shot ahead of Stacy Lewis (68).

"I think he let me cool off a little after that hole", Korda, who is seeking her first career major, told reporters of her caddie's response after the double-bogey. She parred the next four holes before getting hot again with birdies on Nos.

With the latest feat, South Korea has produced an LPGA major champion for the tenth straight season.

Apple unveils 8th generation iPad and all-new iPad Air
Apple CEO Tim Cook said the company has sold more than 500 million iPads over the past 10 years since the first iPad debuted. Coming to the star feature, the new A14 Bionic chip, which is clearly going to make an appearance on the new iPhone 12 .

Having surged back into contention on Saturday by tying the tournament record with a 30 on the front nine and finishing with a seven-under 65 for a share of the lead, she had 30 putts on Sunday - six more than Lee - despite hitting 16 of the 18 greens.

Lee chipped in for birdie on No. 6. Henderson's second shot came up just short, and she used putter for her eagle attempt that rolled out some 7 feet pasts.

It was talked about all week, and the chalet in a normal year has blocked shots hit too hard.

Henderson, who passed Sandra Post a year ago with her ninth LPGA title to make her the most successful Canadian golfer, had only played two tournaments since her sport resumed in late July. Korda, forced to lay up, came away with a par. "I felt like I missed a lot of putts". But Mirim and Nelly played great, and I really fought my way around, so I'm happy.

With the tournament taking place behind closed doors this year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, officials took the unorthodox step of replacing the grandstand behind the green on 18 with a blue wall bearing the logo of the event sponsor, Japanese airline ANA. But she birdied the 16th and 18th to at least give herself a chance.
