Park tops Lincicome in playoff for LPGA Championship


Defending champion Inbee Park came from behind to win the final Wegmans LPGA Championship, prevailing on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff after Brittany Lincicome bogeyed the 18th hole twice - once in regulation and once in sudden death.

Leaderboard: Inbee Park (-11), Brittany Lincicome (-11), Lydia Ko (-8), Azahara Munoz (-6), Anna Nordqvist (-6)

What it means: It was Park's 11th LPGA win, second LPGA Championship, fifth major and second win of 2014. Park will go down as the last winner of this event, which is being replaced next year by the KPMG Women's PGA Championship. The site is also being changed, from Monroe Golf Club in Pittsford, N.Y., to Westchester Country Club north of New York City.

Round of the day: After not breaking 70 in any of her first three rounds, World No. 1 Stacy Lewis closed with a 4-under 68 to move up to a tie for sixth.

Best of the rest: So Yeon Ryu, the 2011 U.S. Women's Open winner, shot a 3-under 69, the second-best round of the day. World No. 2 Ko was 4 under on the day through 16 holes but finished bogey-bogey.

Biggest disappointment: Suzann Pettersen began the day tied with Park, one shot out of the lead, but she double-bogeyed the first hole and was never a factor. She played the front nine in 5-over 41 and finished with a 76.
