Park Sung-hyun Wins KPMG Women's PGA Championship

Hataoka was unable to stay in the playoff for long, settling for par on the first hole.

Park secured her second major since her victory in the U.S. Women's Open in July 2017.

Ko got a confidence boost when she won the LPGA MEDIHEAL Championship at Lake Merced near San Francisco in late April.

"Yeah, I did feel nerves going in", Hataoka said through an interpreter.

Ryu's 69s give her a six-under 138 total atop the leaderboard with former Women's PGA Championship victor Henderson, who had a 71, and Park, who posted a 72. After she came out of nowhere previous year to win the U.S. Women's Open, I think the expectation was that she should be winning every week.

The former world number one, back in form after a spell in the doldrums, joined South Korean compatriot Park Sung-hyun (72) and Canadian Brooke Henderson (71) at six-under 138 at Kemper Lakes in Kildeer, Illinois. She took a double-bogey 6 on the second hole but rallied back with birdies on holes 6 and 7. Hataoka, who won the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Presented by P&G prior to the KMPG tournament last weekend, had an impressive final round, shooting eight under par, 64.

"The chip shot [for birdie on the par-four fifth] was a pretty tough one, but I made the birdie and I was able to have two birdies under my belt after like five holes, so that was pretty happy", Ryu told the LPGA's official website.

The par-4 16th hole proved to be the promised land for Park, who pulled off an incredible up-and-down for par in regulation and then clinched the title there in the playoff.

Ryu bounced back with birdies on No. 6 and 7.

After watching the play unfold, Ryu calmly drained her lengthy birdie putt to reach 12-under par.

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. "I can't still believe that I'm sitting right next to this trophy". With the win, she took home total prize money of $547,500.

"I tried to make as many birdies as I can, and I know it's hard out there with the wind being a little bit more up than yesterday", Ko said. Today, I kind of struggled a little bit with my putter, which is disappointing, but I think just kind of get better in my head and just go out tomorrow and make a lot of good shots and see if I can make some birdies. Hataoka missed hers, and Park, the last to putt, had to make hers to extend the playoff.
