South Korea's Hyo Joo Kim fired a closing 68 to match Jutanugarn, who squandered a seven-shot lead on the back nine for a 73.

Certainly, this U.S. Women's Open was dramatic and memorable, and continues what has been a stunning year to date for Ariya Jutanugarn.

Charley Hull's best US Open to date saw her finish in a share of 10th.

Smith said a switch back to her old irons, a reversion to a conventional putting grip and advice from coach Sean Foley - who basically told her to just stick with it - had helped her pull her game together. Somehow, she kept her cool.

She said the 50-footer she sank from off the green at the 15th had made her feel "the luck was with me today".

"Actually, I wasn't keeping up with the score at the time so I didn't really know about it". She rolls the ball beautifully.

"I think I'm going to sleep well tonight".

Kim had the only bogey-free round of the day, a 67 to finish at 11-under.

For Jutanargarn, its a chance for her ninth LPGA title, after winning at Kingsmill just two weeks ago, and her second major crown, after her 2016 Women's British Open win.

Jutanugarn was at 6 under overall after four holes when play was halted.

The World No.5 carded a solitary birdie at the par-three 16th during a back-nine 41, adding further bogeys at the 12th, 17th and 18th holes, missing a 12-foot putt on the final hole to find herself tied on 11-under with Kim.

She righted the ship in the playoff, which went to a sudden-death format after the two-hole aggregate start failed to produce a victor.

Going back out to No. 14, Kim barely missed a 20-foot birdie try that would have won it and then Jutanugarn rolled in a 4-footer after a brilliant bunker shot.

The Australian got her round in before a two-hour, 49-minute weather delay.

Sarah Jane Smith, the co-leader after Round 1, repeated her performance Friday with a second straight 5-under-par 67.

"After you have a seven-shot lead and end up that you have to go to play-off, you have no expectations", the champion admitted.

But things were about to get rough in a hurry. The third round begins with groups of three, starting on the first and 10th tees. "I want to win a tournament when she plays good and I play good".

While Jutanugarn was fading, the 22-year-old Kim was rolling. Like everyone else, she was shocked she was still in contention. "I'm extremely happy that I was part of a kind of historical day".
