ANA Inspiration: Mirim Lee chips in on the 18th before winning play-off

Mirim Lee celebrates winning the ANA Inspiration

Mirim Lee won a thrilling ANA Inspiration with a play-off victory over Nelly Korda and Brooke Henderson.

Lee was only able to make the play-off after chipping in on the 18th to seal a remarkable round of 67 and finish level with Henderson and long-time leader Korda.

A bogey on the 17th had left Lee two behind but then her final hole heroics, helped by her approach hitting the wall at the back of the green, got her into the play-off.

Lee won the resulting play-off at teh first time of asking after the 29-year-old held her nerve when Henderson and Korda had both missed their putts.

The traditional leap into Poppie's Pond followed, with her caddie Matt Gelczis performing a spectacular belly flop.

"Usually I'm not afraid of water, but the pool looked a little deep," the world number 94 said. "So it's true that at that moment, I hesitated a little bit."
