WATERLOO, Ontario (AP) — A week after losing the No. 1 ranking, Inbee Park found her putting touch.

Park won the Manulife Financial Classic on Sunday for her first LPGA Tour title in more than 11 months, matching the course record with a 10-under 61 for a three-stroke victory over Cristie Kerr.

"Definitely, the putter is definitely the key," Park said. "I've been hitting the ball consistently all year, just my putter's just not been wanting to do its job. This week, obviously, it did its job."

MOBILE, Alabama (AP) — Jessica Korda won her first LPGA Tour title two years in Australia and opened this season with another victory in the Bahamas. On Sunday, the 21-year-old Florida got one on her home turf with a back-nine charge in the Airbus LPGA Classic.

"It's very sweet," Korda said. "Finally on U.S. soil and somewhat close to Florida. I definitely wish that I could have at least shared it with my parents, but I know that they're watching. My brother's playing a tennis tournament right now and my sister's trying for a U.S. Open qualifier, so we're kind of scattered all over the place, but I can't wait to go home and share this with them."
