Nelly Korda won her first major championship in impressive fashion on Sunday as her final round 4-under, 68 gave her a three-stroke victory at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.
It was a huge win for Korda, who at just 22 years old should be a force on the LPGA for years to come. She’s now the No. 1 player in the world after her win. She was the No. 3 player in the world at the start of the week.
Her sister, Jessica Korda, who is the 13th-ranked player in the world, finished tied for 15th in the tournament after a final round 1-under 71.
The two shared an awesome moment on the 18th green, with Jessica telling her sister, Nelly, how proud of her she was.
This is great:
“I’m so proud of you. You played so well!”
What a moment for sisters, @NellyKorda and @Thejessicakorda. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/0Sy7IkNkUL

These two are going to continue to be dominant golfers on Tour and will have this moment to remember for the rest of their lives, which is pretty cool.
