Heading into the final round at the CME Group Tour Championship, Lydia Ko trailed by three strokes, but she came from behind, shooting a final-round, bogey-free 68 to force a playoff. The 17-year-old from New Zealand and the youngest player in the star-studded field collected the largest payday in women’s golf history Sunday, winning the $1 million Race to the CME Globe and $500,000 tournament purse.

On the American side, Jessica Korda and Morgan Pressel were the only pair able to salvage one of the four available points in the morning foursome matches, and the U.S. managed to split the afternoon fourballs, for two points apiece.

The top-ranked American player, Stacy Lewis, went 0-for-2 in day one. Suzann Pettersen and Carlota Ciganda trailed Lewis and Lexi Thompson for most of the match, but rallied for the 1-up victory.
