In this EPA photo, Park Sung-hyun of South Korea cries after sinking the clinching putt on the second playoff hole to win the KPMG Women's PGA Championship at Kemper Lakes Golf Course in Kildeer, Illinois, on July 1, 2018.

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.

Ryu also used a neat approach on 18 to set up a short birdie putt on the par-4 hole. Park raised her arms and placed her hands on her head before hugging her caddie and wiping away tears.

Both Ryu and Park left themselves with birdie putts at the par-4 18th, but both narrowly missed the attempt that would have sealed the title. Ryu had a 73.

Those hopes were dashed when she made double-bogey at the par-three 17th after finding water with her seven-iron tee shot, the Korean admitting she had trouble gauging what club to use in the fluctuating wind. She made a brilliant par save on 16 after she dug out from the water's edge.

Park had three career wins on the LPGA Tour coming into this weekend, including the U.S. Women's Open past year.

Only 19 years old, Hataoka waited more than an hour for Park and Ryu to finish their rounds before the playoff.

Ryu is playing with plenty of confidence after collecting her first win of 2018 at the Meijer Classic two weeks ago.

England's Charley Hull (67) and Canada's Brooke Henderson (74) shared sixth place at 6 under, with Jacqui Concolino (67), Lizette Salas (70) and I.K. Kim (71) another stroke back in a tie for eighth.

Park, who shot a bogey-free 69 in the final round to force the playoff, said her dramatic day felt "like a dream".

Prior to the tournament this weekend, Park changed her putter.

The South Korean pair had earlier seen off Nasa Hataoka after the trio ended the fourth round tied on 10 under par at Kemper Lakes.

The 13th hole saw Ryu open the door for her competition with a bogey.
