Lee finished in a tie for eighth while third-round leader Kim recovered from a three-over par 75 on Sunday by making birdie on the first extra hole to improve her flawless play-off record to 4-0. She is now three-over 219, 13 shots behind the leader, Sei Young Kim.
A tap-in birdie at the par-five 18th for a three-over-par 75 lifted her into a three-way playoff with fellow South Korean Lee Jeong-eun6 and England's Bronte Law at Lake Merced. "But that strategy make the first hole and the second hole, third holes like no good result".
Kim then birdied the same hole in the playoff, sinking a three-footer after her two rivals had missed from about double that distance.
"It's really tough to escape from the rough because today's pin positions really tough", Kim said. She won for the eighth time on the LPGA Tour, improving to 4-0 in playoffs.
With eight career wins, Kim has pulled into a tie with retired Kim Mi-hyun for the fifth-most wins among South Korean players in LPGA history.
Kim's playoff hole was nearly a carbon copy of her birdie in regulation, her second shot landing just off the front of the green.

Kim said afterward it was "really frustrating" to struggle on early holes, but she tried to keep going and stay focused. "The whole day I got a lot of pressure". And I missed (the birdie at) the last par-3 (17th), and that's really bad for me.
In 2017, she added another win at the Citibanamex Lorena Ochoa Match Play in Mexico City. Kim's success on the LPGA Tour allowed her to be chosen as one of the lucky four golfers to represent Korea at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Of the 11 tournaments so far this season, six have been won by Korean golfers.
