Nelly Korda captured her first major title on Sunday, powering past the competition at the Atlanta Athletic Club.

The 22-year-old American finished three strokes in front of Lizette Salas, who hung tough all tournament long. The KPMG PGA Championship is Korda’s second straight tour win in two weeks and her third victory of the season.

Korda’s inaugural major championship lifts her to No. 1 in the world rankings, making her the first American to reach the top spot since Stacy Lewis in 2014.
