Fans at the Cognizant Founders Cup expected a fierce battle between none other than Nelly Korda, who is currently enjoying a fantastic winning run that includes a recent big victory at the Chevron Championship.

But when attention turned to Madelene Sagstrom and 21-year-old Rose Zhang, the fearsome team, the unexpected happened.

They overtook the field, leaving even World No. 1 in their wake, thanks to their lightning-fast putters and flawless ball hitting. This exciting change of events demonstrated how golf is dynamic and how up-and-coming players can quickly eclipse seasoned winners.

At the Cognizant Founders Cup, Zhang overcame an early deficit to win in an exciting turn of events. Securing the tournament by a two-stroke lead over Sagstrom, she rebounded with four birdies in the final five holes, demonstrating an amazing display of skill and determination.

Zhang ends Korda’s run

“I am still trembling at the moment. I don’t believe I ever gave up. Madelene is a really good golfer; she was almost making putts and hitting every shot that was close to the hole, so I always knew I had it in me to just grind it out and enjoy the moment. I had to get ready for the hardest task.” Zhang quoted to golf.com

Zhang was preparing to defend her title at the NCAA Individual Championship a year ago. After all this time, she is now enjoying the success of winning her second LPGA Championship and is ready to try to defend it at the Mizuho Americas Open, which is scheduled to take place at Liberty National the following week.
