Park Sung-hyun claims second major title in sudden death playoff

04 Juillet, 2018, 14:21 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Sung Hyun Park, the sixth-ranked player in the world, outlasted a three-person playoff, defeating So Yeon Ryu and Nasa Hataoka on the second extra hole to win her second major title and fourth career victory on the LPGA Tour.

Ryu, who won last year's ANA Inspiration and the 2011 US Women's Open, took her first title of the year two weeks ago at the LPGA Meijer Classic and hoped to move one step closer to a career Grand Slam.

With it, ... she's on the coattails of the world number one - and fellow South Korean - Park Inbee.

The 24-year-old said she drew upon her experience of winning last year's U.S. Women's Open and added, "Late in the round today, I kept thinking about what I did to win the U.S. Women's Open last year".

So Yeon Ryu rolled in a 15-footer on the 18th hole to take a three-stroke lead into the final round.

Aditi, who is playing only her second year on the LPGA Tour, had four bogeys, three of them in a row on the back nine from 12th to 14th, and three birdies.

With Ryu lying on the green, it seemed Park would be fortunate to get away with a bogey.

Archbishop Gets 12 Months Detention for Concealing Child Sex Abuse
Philip Wilson, now archbishop of Adelaide , is the most senior Catholic in the world to be convicted of the offence. In May, a court found he had failed to report his colleague James Patrick Fletcher's abuse of altar boys to police.

After a lengthy discussion with Jones, Park played a stunning shot to save par.

For Park, it was sweet vindication after a rough few months.

But that lead disappeared on the very next hole, the par-3 17th, where Ryu found water off the tee.

Park almost took a one-shot lead at the 17th, but her long birdie attempt lipped out. She had one short putt rim out and another deflect out of the back of the cup in a double-bogey on No. 2.

Both Ryu and Park left themselves with birdie putts at the par-4 18th, but both narrowly missed the attempt that would have sealed the title. Park, needing to make hers to stay alive, drained the putt to take the playoff to the 16th, the site of her adventures in regulation.

Park had failed to make the cut at five of the 12 events she'd played this season, looking a shadow of her former self-heading to the Kemper Lakes Golf Club in IL this week.
