Three ladies tied for the top spot after 56 hole at the Toto Japan Classic at -18 under par for the tournament. Sun-Ju Ahn and Ji-Hee Lee from South Korea with Angela Stanford, from USA.
Sun-Ju, from South Korea, prevailed with a birdie at the first extra hole, the par four 18th.
Sun-Ju was a very happy golfer;
“I’m very happy, I didn’t think that I’d be able to win the tournament but it’s a nice surprise and I’m very happy.”
“I’m just going to enjoy this win and this moment.”
Angela thought her 33 ft putt was going to drop;
“About halfway I thought it might have a chance but it broke more than I thought it would.”
“Sun-Ju hit a really good shot in there. If you stick it on 18, with this hole, you deserve birdie and you deserve to win.”
“I’m pretty happy, when I left Korea I was pretty upset because I played bad in Malaysia and Korea.”
“I went home put my head down and wanted to get better. I’m happy with this week.”
“In the back of my mind I had chalked this year up to just one of those tough ones but John Killeen, my caddie, kept saying that the year’s not over yet so I guess he was right.”
Ariya Jutanugarn fired an impressive low round of the day, -8 under, in tough conditions, to finish her week in fifth place at -14 under par;
“Before today I thought that if I shoot 2-under today that’d be good.”
“I was just patient and did what I had to do.”
“This year has taught me a lot, I had a really hard time when I missed 10 cuts in a row but I’ve learned how to come back and now I realize that I’m a good golfer and I’ve got more and more confidence.”
