Nelly Korda left no doubt on Sunday. And now she's the top-ranked player in the world.
Korda won her first major tournament after pulling away from the field with a 4-under 68, besting Lizette Salas by three strokes. The two came into Sunday's final round even atop the leaderboard, but Salas couldn't keep up, shooting a 1-under 71.
Hyo Joo Kim (-10), Giulia Molinaro (-10), Danielle Kang (-8) and Patty Tavatanakit (-8) rounded out the top five.
