Park Sung-hyun wins in Illinois-INSIDE

Park Sung-hyun wins in Illinois-INSIDE

With her driver normally being the weapon that helps her excel over her competitors she hit just four fairways on Sunday.

A birdie on the par-5 No. 11 put her at 12 under before she bogeyed the par-3 13th.

However, Hataoka was the first to drop out of the playoff, though she made par.

The remaining pair headed next to No. 16, also a par 4, where-after a brief rain delay-Park drained a 9-foot birdie putt to claim the title. But her back nine was sloppy, starting well with a birdie on the 11th before a double bogey on the 12th.

Park and Ryu birdied the first extra hole to eliminate Hataoka, who had threatened to steal a stunning victory when she came from nine strokes behind with a closing eight-under-par 64.

She said at he time, "I felt very confident with it, felt like I could make good strokes, and I felt like I was seeing the line well, too, which all those things are great things to see it well".

She beat compatriot Ryu So-yeon and Japan's Nasa Hataoka after they finished level on 10 under par at Kemper Lakes near Chicago. It's been a wild year for Park.

Player who suffered for Serena's Wimbledon seeding is furious
Novak Djokovic is No. 12, Britain's Kyle Edmund is seeded No. 22 and French Open surprise Marco Cecchinato is No. 31. The BBC's tennis correspondent Russell Fuller says Cibulkova will not be the only one enraged by the decision.

Park began her sophomore campaign slowly and missed two cuts in her first seven starts, after not missing any in 23 events in 2017. Despite a 75 in round two, Korda was still able to climb the leaderboard on Sunday with a 68 for her fifth top 10 of the year.

With the temperature reaching the mid-30Cs at Kemper Lakes in Ilinois, the 23-year-old mixed two bogeys with four birdies to fire a second-round 70. Last year, she missed the cut in her debut Women's PGA Championship, one of five women's majors.

Sung Hyun Park, of South Korea, reacts after making a birdie putt during the first hole of a playoff on the 18th hole during the final round of the KPMG Women's PGA Championship golf tournament at Kemper Lakes Golf Club in Kildeer, Ill., Sunday, July 1, 2018.

Second-placed Henderson, victor of the event two years ago before finishing runner-up last year, rued slipping from two shots in front at the turn to three behind at day's end.

It is truly and worldwide leaderboard as the top five players represent four countries, Canada, USA, South Korea and England. "But it was kind of playing tough early this morning, it was really windy, and it just took a couple holes to kind of adjust to that". I just did 100-per cent effort every shot, every putt and still, you know, I like looking at the positive side.

Baltusrol most recently hosted a major in 2016 when American Jimmy Walker won his first major at the PGA Championship. This was her second major title and fourth career LPGA Tour win.
