Lydia Ko in sensational finish at ANA Inspiration

Korda and Henderson share lead heading into final day of ANA Inspiration

Mirim Lee won a three-way play-off against Nelly Korda and Brooke Henderson to clinch Ana Inspiration title, while Ireland's Leona Maguire claimed a top 20 finish. Korda regained her touch.

Canada's Henderson, who celebrated her 23 birthday last Friday, started the day six adrift of overnight leader Korda but got things going early with a 15-foot eagle at the second hole at Mission Hills in Rancho Mirage, California.

After almost undoing all of two days of work in the span of two holes, American Nelly Korda on Saturday regrouped with a sold back nine to hold on to a share of the lead after three rounds of the ANA Inspiration in Rancho Mirage, Calif.

Henderson was 1 shot behind with her ball sitting up in the rough on the 18th in regulation.

She had actually previously cracked in for birdies on the 6th and 16th holes, the latter from 80-foot variety, however her only error of the last day at the 17th sought to have actually cost her up until she produced her thrilling finish which battled the clubhouse lead away from 2014 champ Lexi Thompson (69 ).

She was never in the lead at any point until she calmly holed a five-foot birdie putt on the 18th to beat Nelly Korda and Brooke Henderson, who each had the lead on the back nine.

"There are a lot of great players on the leaderboard", she added. That was her last birdie of the round. "And hopefully, tomorrow I can post a similar round".

Lee pitched to 7 feet and, after her 2 competitors both missed their birdie opportunities, the 29-year-old held her nerve to hole the left-to-right putt for the win and her very first significant title.

But Korda, daughter of former Australian Open tennis champion Petr Korda, saw her game become a little ragged around the turn as she mixed three bogeys with two birdies in an up-and-down five-hole stretch, with Henderson matching her two at the 11th to stay tied for the lead. The Canadian took her only lead on the 12th hole when Korda made bogey, and it didn't last long.

Amateur Olivia Mehaffey also shot a 76 and she finished on +13.

She then finished strong with five more birdies and a bogey on the back nine to finish at 10-under for the tournament. "I have a lot of hard work, and there are a lot of great players on the leaderboard so I'm probably going to have to go low tomorrow and it's going to take a really good number".
