Nelly Corda’s shot from the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, a major U.S. women’s professional golf (LPGA) major tournament in June, was selected as the ‘best shot’ for the 2021 season. It is according to the results of the ‘Best 15’ of the year’s best shots announced on the 24th by Golf Channel, an American golf professional media.

On the last day, on the 5th hole (par 5), Coda made a tap-in eagle by hitting the second shot with a 7-wood with 243 yards left and 50 cm from the hole. At that time, Koda started the 4th round with Lizzet Salas (USA) tied for first place, and after a birdie on the 3rd hole (par 4), he started to outdo Salas with an eagle on the 5th hole, laying the foundation for his first major win.

With this win, Koda rose to the top of the world rankings for the first time in her career. It also has enough meaning to be counted as the ‘Shot of the Year’ since he made his first major championship and world ranking first at the same time.

The Golf Channel’s ‘Number Two’ of the year was the shot Phil Mickelson (USA) showed at the PGA Championship in May, which is also a major tournament. The shot hit at the 5th hole (par 3) bunker in the final round of this tournament was directly connected to the birdie. With this shot, Mickelson became the first 50-year-old major champion in history, two strokes behind second place.

Third place was a shot by Victor Hoblan (Norway). On the first round of the Tour Championship last September, on the 5th hole (par 4), Hoblan’s tee shot was skewed to the left and placed under a tree. He directed the entering Jin Ki Myunggi.
