Marina Alex won the Palos Verdes Championship on Sunday for her second LPGA Tour title, breaking a tie with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 16th and parring the final two holes for a one-stroke victory over Jin Young Ko.
Three strokes behind Hannah Green entering the round, Alex closed with a 5-under 66 to finish at 10-under 274 at the hilly and windy Palos Verdes Golf Club.
“Today was amazing,” Alex said. “I’m kind of not really there with processing what went down today, but it’s been a really tough couple years. I mean, since the COVID — that slowed all of us down.
“And then I was injured really quick after that. Had seven months off, and it’s just been a really tough rebuilding back. Coming into this year I finally have felt good physically, like really good.”
Alex also won the 2018 Portland Classic. She tied for 10th last week at Wilshire Country Club in the LA Open.
