Jessica Korda completed her wire-to-wire dominance at the Honda LPGA Thailand with a 5-under, 67 to finish at 25-under, which shatters the tournament record, on Sunday to win by four.

Korda collects her first trophy since 2015 in her first start of 2018.

"I can't believe it, today was such a blur, I was just trying to make birdies. I tried to relax, but I was nervous," said Korda. "This (Honda LPGA Thailand) was my first event my rookie year. I played really, really well this week."

The 24-year-old made two birdies and a bogey over the front nine and Moriya Jutanugarn pulled within two shots early on the back nine, but Korda canned birdies on 11, 13 and 15 and cruised to her fifth career win on the LPGA.

Korda put an exclamation mark on the championship with a 25-foot birdie on 17 followed an emphatic fist pump and a dazzling smile.

It’s a rather remarkable win for Korda considering she is coming off a tough offseason where she had double jaw surgery to solve the frequent headaches she was having.

Moriya Jutanugarn and Lexi Thompson each birdied 18 to share second place at 21-under.

Charley Hull fired a final-round 66 to finish in sole 13th position.
