South Korean Ko Jin-young claimed her maiden major title after taking out the ANA Inspiration on Sunday.
Ko carded a two-under-par 70 as she won the LPGA Tour’s first major tournament of the year by three strokes in Rancho Mirage in California.
World number five Ko, who held a one-shot advantage after 54 holes, overcame bogeys at the 13th and 14th with birdies at the 16th and 18th to reign supreme.
The 23-year-old finished ahead of countrywoman Lee Mi-hyang (70) as she celebrated her fourth career title and second in three weeks.
A dream becomes reality.
