The Jessica Korda team wins the Aramco Team Series – the first Ladies European Tour event held in the United States – .


Comprised of Korda, Karolin Lampert, Lina Boqvist and amateur Alexandra O’Laughlin, her team finished just ahead of Sophia Popov and her team to claim the inaugural title.

The two teams had to be separated by a nerve-wracking playoff after finishing tied with a total of 41 under par.

And under the spotlight at Glen Oaks Club, New York, a par on the 17th hole for Korda against Popov was enough to clinch the title – his second LET title, and a first for Lampert and Boqvist.

“It was nice to be able to share it with the team,” Korda said afterwards.

“It’s such an individual sport and the fact that you can win as a team is so cool. It was a great experience and we had so much fun, being able to pick a player and then we have some big additions. Today we really got together, and it was one of our best days. The first nine were tough but the last six holes were great. “

Charley Hull won the individual title after recording today’s round, including four consecutive birdies to start the day on Sunday.

The 25-year-old posted a seven under par 65 – the tournament’s lowest round – to finish one step ahead of US world number one Nelly Korda.

This victory is Hull’s third LET title, and his first since 2019.

The winning team, Jessica Korda, Alex O'Laughlin, Karolin Lamert and Lina Boqvist, celebrates.

“In 2019, it was my last victory, it’s good to have a victory and as the end of the season approaches, I hope to finish in style,” she said.

“I played well the first few days, but today I really did it. The conditions were tough so this is probably one of the best laps I have ever played. I was very proud of myself and to finish with a birdie, I am very happy, ”said Hull.
