Inami continued her incredible form through the final nine holes to take silver. You want it? We have it. Stream every Olympic event live on discovery+.
‘Good luck keeping up...!’ – Korda wins golf gold for USA
That looked to have set Korda on course for a relatively comfortable trip home, but an incredible four consecutive birdies for Inami rocketed the 22-year-old to within a shot of the American with just two holes remaining.
The drama only escalated when play was suspended for an incoming tropical storm, resuming after the lightning had subsided.

Korda found herself level for the first time of the day as play resumed, but not for long, as an agonising missed putt from Inami on the final hole opened the door for the American to win.
Making no mistake, Korda held her nerve to sink a close-range putt, securing gold and sending Inami and Ko into the silver medal play-off.
