PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) – Jessica Korda laughed about her winning up-and-down and being sprayed with shaving cream.

The 20-year-old Korda won the season-opening Bahamas LPGA Classic on Sunday for her second tour title, holing a 6-foot birdie putt on the final hole to beat Stacy Lewis by a stroke.


Korda closed with a 7-under 66 for a 19-under 273 total at Atlantis Resort’s Ocean Club.

The third-ranked Lewis parred the final four holes – two of them par 5s – for a 66.

“I only birdied the 18th hole once this week and that made the difference,” Lewis said. “Three of the four days I went over the green to the same place, so obviously that wasn’t the place to be. But you are not doing a lot wrong if you a finish second. And that’s what I’ll take away from this week.”

Korda tied Lewis for the lead with a 12-foot birdie putt on the par-3 17th, then got up-and-down for birdie on the par-5 18th. Korda’s 4-iron approach on 18 scampered through the green and up against the grandstand. She took relief from the grandstand and, with an official and a TV announcer holding up cords that would have interfered with her stroke, putted under the wires to set up the winning birdie.
