Nelly Korda is the hottest player on the planet right now, which a dominating 4&3 victory against Leona Maguire to win her fourth LPGA title in a row

When Nelly Korda headed into the final round for three wins in a row last week, there was excited anticipation from golf fans that she would get it across the line. One thing for sure this season is that we're seeing a resurgence from the American after what has felt like a quiet couple of years.

Ahead of this week at her first appearance at the T-Mobile Match Play presented by MGM Rewards, the American spoke about how she is managing her current hot streak:

"I'm just trying to stay very much so in the moment. I feel like with sports and golf in general, you have so much time to think, so I think that staying in the moment is something that I try really hard to focus on."

Staying in the moment and knowing how to execute her own game plan are exactly what Korda was able to achieve this week. After three rounds of stroke play, the 25-year-old played her way into the match play part of the Championship.

On Saturday she beat Angel Yin 3&2 and Narin An 4&3, to set up a Solheim Cup warm up singles match against Leona Maguire. Known for her fantastic match play ability, Maguire eased into the final with a 4&3 win over Moriya Jutanugarn and 3&3 over Sei Young Kim in the semi-final.

The scene was set for an epic final. Although both had never faced each other in a singles match, Maguire held the Solheim head-to-head 3 to 1.

It's fair to say that Maguire just didn't get a look in over the early part of the match with Korda winning four of the first seven holes which got her to four up by the ninth tee. Maguire claimed one back on nine but Korda holed a putt for par on 10 to get back to four.

A birdie on the par-4 12th hole after hitting the pin with her second shot put Korda to five up with six to play. As a fierce competitor, Maguire was never going to give up and would go on to win the next two holes which included a spectacular approach shot on 14 where she holed her birdie putt.

The late charge proved not to be enough as Korda saw the win in sight, winning the 15th hole to take the match 4&3 and capture her fourth consecutive LPGA Tour title, becoming the first player to achieve this since Lorena Ochoa in 2008.

"It's very impressive what she's doing"

Commenting on her early lead and win Korda said:

"It's always nice to get a lead kind of like a cushion in a sense. But it's Leona. She's such a fiery competitor. I knew when I lost those two holes in a row, 13 and 14, that I really needed to put my foot down to finish the match off. It was kind of an interesting day.

"Leona hit some putts that she obviously normally wouldn't, but just stayed in my own bubble really.

"It's just been a whirlwind. It's been an amazing time, and to do it here as well in match play has been so much fun."

With Maguire congratulating the American on another great victory:

"Obviously Nelly is the best player in the world right now probably male or female. She is playing unbelievable golf and I knew I was going to have to bring my A+ game if I was going to have a chance.

"Just didn't putt well enough, and hats off to Nelly. She really didn't give me much of a chance. It's very impressive what she's doing."

Whilst The Masters takes place, the LPGA will take a week's break before returning for the women's first Major of the season at the Chevron Championship. Korda couldn't make it five, could she?!
