Marina Alex finished with a 10-under 274 at the Palos Verdes Golf Club to claim victory at the Palos Verdes Championship on Sunday.

The American sunk a two-putt birdie on the par-5 16th and parred the last two holes to pull ahead of Jin Young Ko by one stroke.

Alex fired a 5-under 66 final round to overcome a three-stroke deficit heading into Sunday.

“I wasn’t sure if this would ever happen again if I’m being perfectly honest,” the 31-year-old said after her win. “It’s been tough. We’re all getting older. I’m getting older. There are so many amazing players out here. The competition is really, really difficult.”

Lydia Ko and Megan Khang rounded out the top of the Palos Verdes leaderboard, falling two strokes behind Alex.

“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.”

Sunday’s victory marks Alex’s second LPGA Tour win. She last lifted the trophy at the Portland Classic in 2018.

Hannah Green preserved her lead at the Palos Verdes Championship, holding on to a one-shot advantage heading into the tournament’s final round.

The Australian entered Saturday with a three-stroke lead before faltering and firing bogeys on the first two holes. Green, however, bounced back to finish 1-over 72 to remain atop the leaderboard.

“I got off to a horrendous start, I guess you could say,” Green said. “Just short-sided myself too many times today, so I was actually pretty happy with the 1-over score.”

Lydia Ko of New Zealand sits just behind Green on the Palos Verdes leaderboard, shooting a 70 to take second place.

The final round of the Palos Verdes Championship kicks off at 6 pm ET on the Golf Channel.

Hannah Green surged to the top of the leaderboard at the Palos Verdes Championship, finishing with a second-round 5-under 66 Friday.

The Australian holds a three-stroke lead heading into the third round at Palos Verdes Estates.

“Hopefully, I can keep as many bogeys off the scorecard and keep making birdies,” Green said. “I think there will be some low scores.”

Carding birdies on 14 and 16, Green finished at 9-under 133, rebounding from dropped strokes on the par-4 12th hole and par-3 13th.

Megan Khang, Minjee Lee, Jin Young Ko and Lydia Ko all sit in second, three strokes behind Green at 6-under.

The Palos Verdes Championship continues on Saturday, with the tournament’s third round airing on the Golf Channel at 6 pm ET.

Minjee Lee surged to a one-shot lead over Jin Young Ko on Thursday, firing an 8-under 63 to top the leaderboard heading into the second round at the Palos Verdes Championship.

The Australian put together a bogey-free opening round at Palos Verdes Estate, following up on a third-place tie in last weekend’s LA Open.

“I think it’s just the way like the holes are set up,” Lee said. “There are a lot of birdie opportunities starting the front nine. I just think there are a lot of opportunities in a row that you can kind of capitalize on.”

Ko carded six-straight birdies to come within one stroke of Lee, gathering herself after a meltdown at Wilshire Country Club.

“Before starting today, I just remind that golf is golf,” Ko said. “Don’t think about last week. Starting again, new routine.”

Palos Verdes Championship action continues on Friday as Lee continues her quest for her seventh LPGA Tour victory.
