Park and Ryu matched pars on the 18th to move into a playoff with Hataoka, who watched the telecast from the clubhouse before heading out to prepare.

Hataoka was unable to stay in the playoff for long, settling for par on the first hole. After settling for a double bogey, she was tied with Park and Nataoka for the lead. Park pumped her first in celebration, and went on to make par.

Ryu was 11-under while Henderson was 8-under and Park was 7-under.

Ryu finished with three birdies in the final five holes to catch Park, who faltered with a bogey at her 16th hole, the par-five seventh.

After taking a penalty stroke, Ryu put her third shot to the fringe well behind the pin and two-putted from there for her second double bogey of the round.

The remaining pair headed next to No. 16, also a par 4, where-after a brief rain delay-Park drained a 9-foot birdie putt to claim the title. Nasa Hataoka, who fired a 64 to come from nine shots back to get into the playoff, missed her birdie attempt and was eliminated.

So it was an understandable moment of relief, then, when her 10-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole found the mark, seeing off compatriot So Yeon Ryu. It's been a wild year for Park. Top-ranked Inbee Park (76) missed the cut at 5-over 149. With her driver normally being the weapon that helps her excel over her competitors she hit just four fairways on Sunday.

Indian golfer Aditi Ashok capped a disappointing week with a one-over 73 for a total of nine-over 297 to finish Tied-63rd at the KPMG Women's PGA Championships here. While she most likely was going to make the team, there was doubt because Hye Jin Choi was one spot behind her in the world rankings and In Kyung Kim was just two spots behind.
