Jutanugarn recovers to win U.S. Women's Open in playoff

Sarah Jane Smith of Australia looks over the 16th green during the second round of the 2018 U.S. Women's Open at Shoal Creek

Jutanugarn said she had a 4 a.m. wakeup call and played a total of 28 holes as the temperature hovered around 90 degrees with stifling humidity.

"I started off quite a few strokes behind the leader, so I didn't really think that I was going to come through", Kim said. Still, there was candid reflection of events from the 10th after which she was "scared" to hit tee shots.

Ariya Jutanugarn let a seven-stroke lead slip through her fingers at the U.S. Women's Open on Sunday after a remarkable back-nine collapse but averted disaster by beating South Korean Kim Hyo-joo in a playoff to collect her second major title. She was up by two shots on the final hole with so many Thai fans there bursting with pride, but she tripled bogeyed the last hole and lost to Inbee Park.

The Australian shot a five-under 67 on Friday, finishing her second round before more thunderstorms soaked an already wet Shoal Creek course.

Woods was second-to-last in the key putting statistic among the 73 players who went all four rounds. So we had a really good lesson before Kingsmill and then I actually missed the cut in Kingsmill, but felt like I played really well.

"I have nothing to lose".

"'I normally do that", Jutanugarn said when asked about her mid-playoff applause.

South Korea's Hyo-Joo Kim was in third after shooting 68 and was six shots back.

Spain's Carlota Ciganda closed with a 69 to take third place at 7 under.

For the longest time on a steamy Sunday afternoon in the 73rd U.S. Women's Open at Shoal Creek, a sport sneered in response.

At the fourth extra hole she found a greenside bunker with her approach shot and could only make bogey, while Ariya produced a stunning up-and-down to make par and clinch the title. Kim had a birdie on the first hole in the two-hole aggregate playoff but gave back a shot with a bogey on the next hole.

Ariya kicked it into high gear on the back nine by draining four birdies in five holes beginning at the par-five 11th hole.

"Just keep thinking about those two 3-footers I missed", said DeChambeau, who was at 14-under 202.

"I hit a couple squirrelly shots (late in the round), but made some nice up-and-downs". I just want to go out and be proud of myself every day. "Not because I want them to play golf, but because I want them to have a good life", she told Golfweek. "I thought if I kept doing that it was going to make me happy". Only after the putt on 15 did she realize she had a chance to come back.

She tore the labrum in her right shoulder later that year, and then slumped terribly in her return, missing 10 LPGA cuts in a row.
