Leona Maguire finished with a level par 72 to tie for 16th at the Gainsbridge LPGA event in Orlando, as American Nelly Korda took the title.
Korda took a one-shot lead into the final round at Lake Nona Golf and Country Club and carded a closing 69 to secure her fourth LPGA title by three shots from Lexi Thompson and Lydia Ko.
The 22-year-old’s older sister Jessica won the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions in January, meaning the Kordas join Annika and Charlotta Sorenstam as sisters to win consecutive events on the LPGA Tour.
