American teenager Jessica Korda, 18, the daughter of Petr Korda, the 1998 winner of the Men’s Australian Open in tennis, won the women’s golf version of the tournament in Melbourne, for her first LPGA title.

The younger Korda sanked a 25-foot birdie putt on the second hole of a six-player playoff.

Korda closed the tournament with a 1-over-par 74 to finish at 3-under-par 289 in the LPGA Tour’s 2012 opening event. It was also the first women’s first professional event at Royal Melbourne, the site of the 2011 President’s Cup.

The 6-player playoff which equalled the largest in LPGA history included Stacy Lewis, Brittany Lincicome, Julieta Granada, So Yeon Ryu and Hee Kyung Seo.
