Nelly Korda the winner after FOUR WAY playoff 

From Sportsnet.ca, by AP:

BELLEAIR, Fla. -- An epic duel between Nelly Korda and Lexi Thompson turned into a stunning meltdown by both of them. Korda at least managed to recover and win a four-way playoff Sunday in the Pelican Women's Championship.

Korda won for the fourth time this year on the LPGA Tour, none of the others this wild.

``I almost kind of lost faith,'' she said.

Korda fell out of the lead on the 17th hole at Pelican Golf Club by chopping her way to a triple bogey to fall two shots behind. She answered with an 18-foot birdie putt on the final hole for a 1-under 69 and got into a playoff when Thompson made a second straight bogey for 69.  Read more

Korda was leading and on course for victory when her round unravelled with a horror triple-bogey on the 17th.  Read more
