Inbee Park wins LPGA Championship

PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Inbee Park successfully defended her title in the LPGA Championship, beating Brittany Lincicome with a par on the first hole of a playoff Sunday to end the United States' major streak at three.

On the playoff hole on Monroe Golf Club's par-4 18th, Park hit her second into the rough behind the hole. Lincicome hit her approach to the left fringe, nearly identical to her position on the final hole of regulation when she made a bogey to fall in the playoff.

Lincicome chipped 6 feet past the hole and failed to convert for bogey. Park, the winner last year at Locust Hill in a playoff with Catriona Matthew, chipped to 3 feet and calmly sank her par putt for the victory.

Park finished with a 2-under 70 to match Lincicome at 11-under 276. Lincicome had a 71.

The South Korean player won her fifth major title and fourth in the last two seasons

Seventeen-year-old rookie Lydia Ko of New Zealand, seeking to become the youngest major winner in LPGA history, shot a 70 to finish third at 8 under.
