Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions
Who watched the Diamond Resort Tournament of Champions on the LPGA Tour?!
The LPGA Tour players played extremely well and it was so much fun to watch! Let's start with Danielle Kang, she had such a great week and is overall such a well rounded player. The Korda sisters are both so incredible as well and have such a talent for the game. I was on the edge of the couch all afternoon watching them down the stretch. Nelly had such a phenomenal round and came back from where she started the round to finish where she did. Danielle played so well this week and it was incredible to watch her consistency this week and her drive, especially when it came to making that final putt on 18 to end up in the playoff. Jessica after a historic round of 60 on Saturday came to fight on Sunday getting herself into a playoff with Danielle come 18 on Sunday. They both hit great tee shots on the first playoff hole and Jessica walked up and rolled in her phenomenal birdie putt putting the pressure on DK to make hers. In the end Jessica came out with her sixth LPGA Tour victory! Great playing to everyone and congrats to Jessica Korda!
The celebrity division was also a lot of fun to watch! Mardy Fish played so well and walked away with it on Sunday. Aaron Hicks had such an incredible week and hits the ball so far. On Saturday he went over the water on the dogleg par four cutting the corner and ending up just left of the green! Another highlight of the week for me was watching Annika Sorenstam tee it up! Annika had four great rounds and ended up finishing in 9th place in the celebrity division. She is such a machine rolling in long putts, accurate drives and approach shots, and her effortless chips when she occasionally misses a green. Great playing to everyone and congrats to Mardy Fish on the win!
Also, congrats to Si Woo Kim on the win at the American Express on the PGA Tour! There was some great playing over there too.
