Sung Hyun Park wins Women's PGA Championship in playoff

Lydia Ko Swings During Round Two of KPMG Women's PGA Championship

But as Park and Ryu played their final holes, she went out to practice, thinking she might be in a playoff against two past major champions.

Park Sung-hyun chips on the 16th hole during the final round of the KPMG Women's PGA Championship at the Kemper Lakes Golf Club in Kildeer, Illinois on Sunday. But once Ryu made a double bogey on the 17th hole by hitting her tee shot into the hazard, she allowed Park and Hataoka to share the lead, forcing a sudden-death playoff. In the end, the 24-year-old added another major to go with the 2017 U.S. Women's Open and took home the $547,500 prize.

Park, last year's LPGA Rookie of the Year, won her second title of the year after the LPGA Texas Classic in May.

Kiwi Lydia Ko has lost ground on the leaders at the Women's LPGA Championship in IL, slipping to a share of 10th place. Ryu, who won the ANA Inspiration previous year and the U.S. Women's Open in 2011, has had top three results at all five women's majors.

Ko began her round with a birdie on the second hole but a bogey on the third took away her bright start. She won the NW Arkansas Championship last week for her first tour title.

Park managed to dig the ball out at the water's edge and save par.

Meanwhile, out on the course, Park flirted with disaster on the challenging par-4 16th hole.

When Park sank her victor after Ryu had missed, Ryu, who had been in position to win her third major, was left to ponder the one that got away. "I've been hitting it close and giving myself good looks for birdie".

In a later interview on the paper's online site, Davis likened the newspaper office to a "war zone". He said police believe they were sent before the attack, and detectives are now investigating.

Ryu was 11-under while Henderson was 8-under and Park was 7-under.

But while clubhouse leaders Park and Ryu awaited their playoff tied at 10-under-par, Japanese teenager Nasa Hataoka nearly rewrote the script, coming from nowhere with a final round 64 to join them in the sudden-death shootout.

On the par-five seventh, a shot that appeared water-bound ended up in a spectator's bag. "I think I've been waiting this time for such a long time, since I've been having a tough year this year especially, and this is my second major win in two years".

Park was four behind Ryu at the start of the day at seven-under.

"I got less nervous during the playoff".

Ryu was the overnight leader at 11-under but committed two double bogeys for a 73 in the final round, while blowing a two-shot lead with two holes to play to fall into the playoff.

"It's a great result considering where I started from", Hataoka said. Hataoka missed hers, and Park, the last to putt, had to make hers to extend the playoff.
