Lydia Ko at the Women's PGA Championship, third round

Lydia Ko at the Women's PGA Championship, third round

Sung Hyun Park raised her arms and placed her hands on her head before hugging her caddie and wiping away tears.

Sung Hyun Park hits her tee shot on the 17th hole during the final round of the KPMG Women's PGA Championship golf tournament at Kemper Lakes Golf Club.

The ball landed two feet from the hole, and Park converted the putt to save par on what could have just as easily ended her hope to win.

Ryu carded a 3-under, 69 as the crowd gifted a birthday dessert at the 18th.

Park's previous major victory came at the U.S. Women's Open in 2017, a historic season in which she also grabbed the Rookie of the Year award and the money title while sharing the Player of the Year honors with Ryu.

American Angel Yin shot a four-under 68 to take fourth and England's Bronte Law rounds out the top five after firing a 69.

Defending champion Danielle Kang shot her third over-par round of the tournament with a 73 on Sunday, finishing at 2 over for the tournament in a tie for 33rd place.

Nine strokes behind Ryu entering the day, the 19-year-old Hataoka almost pulled off one of the biggest comebacks in LPGA Tour history. "I made some birdies, but I countered them with bogeys, so to finish off with a nice birdie putt on 18 gives me a lot of confidence going into tomorrow".

But that lead disappeared on the very next hole, the par-3 17th, where Ryu found water off the tee.

Park had failed to make the cut at five of the 12 events she'd played this season, looking a shadow of her former self heading to the Kemper Lakes Golf Club in IL this week.

After heavy rain soaked the course earlier in the week, the past two days have been marked by brutal heat, with temperatures in the mid-90s on Saturday.

Park slammed home a 7-foot birdie putt to win, as Ryu's birdie effort rolled past the left edge of the cup. She hit a flawless flop to 3-feet and saved par. She finished the hole with a double-bogey 5, dropping her into a three-way tie at 10 under with Park and Hataoka.

Former world number one Ryu took a big step towards a third major title with a five-under-par 67 in scorching conditions at Kemper Lakes in Kildeer, Illinois.

Park, who won her first major title at the U.S. Women's Open previous year, now has four wins, including two majors. The changes were effective for Park, as she had 27 putts in the final round and not a single bogey. She followed that with a neat one on the par-4 No. 12, when her shot from the rough bounced off the stick and into the cup.
