Lydia Ko parred the fourth playoff hole on Sunday to defeat Carlota Ciganda and win the CME Group Tour Championship.
Ko fired a final-round, 4-under 68 at Tiburon Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort to finish regulation tied with Ciganda and Julieta Granada at 10-under-par 278. Granada was eliminated on the second playoff hole when she tripped to a bogey.
It was another win in an already incredible rookie season for Ko. The victory is the fifth of Ko's career and third of the season. With the win, Ko also captured the season-long Race to the CME Globe title and the $1 million prize.
