Jin Young Ko Wins Founders Cup


Jin Young Ko and Minjee Lee battled it out at the Cognizant LPGA Founders Cup, with Ko coming back from 4-shot behind to catch Lee, and then win on the first playoff hole. Ko had a final- round 67 (which was the lowest round of the day) to finish at 13-under par.

Lee had a chance to win on the first playoff hole, but ran her birdie attempt well past the hole and could not make the comebacker, handing the win to Ko.
