Park's second shot from more than 200 yards landed pin high but took a huge bounce over the green, from where she hit a poor chip that nearly trickled into a water hazard on the other side. She hit a ideal flop to 3-feet and saved par.
Then, Ryu made the mistake that let Park back in by hitting her tee shot on the par 3, 17th into the water. Her round included eight birdies and two bogeys as she vaulted 81 spots up the leaderboard. Hataoka was eliminated on the first hole with a par while the two South Koreans birdied.
But Ryu's tee shot on No. 17 went into the water to the left of the green, setting up the three-way tie.
South Korean golfer Park Sung-hyun has won the KPMG Women's PGA Championship, capturing her second career LPGA major title.
Park had a historic rookie year in 2017. Park In-bee, the world No.1 in the women's world ranking, missed the cut after shooting five over par in the first two rounds.
And she continued to head in the wrong direction as the tournament wrapped up at the Kemper Lakes Golf Club early Monday (NZT), with the 21-year-old Kiwi posting a four-over 76 to finish on one over, in a tie for 31st.
The 20-year-old was playing her second Major of the year and had missed the cut at ANA Inspiration. She fired a first round in the 60s in 10 of her 12 starts.
Russia Must Be Proud of Meddling
Senator Lindsey Graham said everything he blasted Obama for doing wrong in the Middle East Trump may do be doing even worse. Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov had told reporters that the venue of the summit was convenient for both sides.
The organization announced on Saturday that the 2023 KPMG Women's PGA Championship and 2029 PGA Championship will be played at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, N.J. Both championships will be staged on Baltusrol's Lower Course, an A.W. Tillinghast design that opened in 1922.
It's understandable that numerous LPGA's finest wilted at the KPMG Women's PGA at Kemper Lakes. Ryu and Henderson were paired together and shared the 36-hole lead with Sung Hyun Park. Ryu and Park traded birdies to set up a one-on-one showdown to decide the tournament.
Angel Yin (68) was fourth at 6-under and Bronte Law (69) was 5-under. "I can't still believe what I've done, but I'm really happy". I did 100 percent effort every shot, every putt.
She finished third at the Meijer LPGA two weeks ago and tied for ninth last week in the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship.
The last time a Japanese player earned a million dollars in a single-season was 2016 when Haru Nomura pocketed seven figures. She finally broke through at a weather-shortened Volunteers of America LPGA Texas Classic on May 6, and her latest major title should further silence skeptics.
If she wants to wins more majors she'll need to figure out her play on the greens, and that may need to go beyond an equipment change.
