S. Korean Pak Se-ri wins her 25th LPGA title
The 33-year-old Pak birdied on the third playoff hole at No. 18 to defeat American Brittany Lincicome and grab her fist title since the 2007's Owens Corning Classic and earn the winner's prize of $195,000.
After the third round, the South Korean Hall of Famer was tied for first with Suzann Pettersen of Norway and Lincicome at 13-under 203.
But the last round was canceled due to heavy rain and the three leaders headed to the playoff at the par-four 18th hole.
Pettersen bogyed the second playoff and went out of the contention, leaving Pak and Lincicome in the third playoff to decide the champion.
Pak hit a bunker shot to set up a birdie putt while Lincicome saved par with a long downhill putt.
Pak has won all six playoffs throughout her 12-year LPGA career.
Lee Jee-young and Choi Na-yeon, both of South Korea, and Azahara Munoz tied for fourth with 11-under 205. Kim Song-hee ranked eighth with nine-under.
Pak debuted in the LPGA in 1998 with surprising wins at the McDonald's LPGA Championship and the U.S. Women's Open, and won the Rookie of the year award
the same year.
She officially joined the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2007 and gained a 10-year membership to the LPGA tour.
Her victory Sunday marks the second title won by a South Korean female golfer this season. Seo Hee-kyung won the KIA Classic in March as a non-LPGA
