A three play-off ensued and Nasa was eliminated at the first play-off hole when Sung and So Yeon made birdies. The play-off was then suspended due to severe weather in the area, and when it resumed 20 minutes later Sung won with a birdie at the second play-off hole.

Sung was very happy with her Major win;

“It was a really long round today, and I can’t still believe that I’m sitting right next to this trophy.”

 “This win means a lot to me since it made me go one step forward.”

“I think I’ve been waiting this time for such a long time since I’ve been having a tough year this year especially, and this is my second major win in two years, and I can’t still believe what I’ve done, but I’m really happy.” 

So Yeon had a few regrets;

“Definitely, making double bogey at the second hole wasn’t a really great start.”

 “Maybe the biggest regret is 17. I was over the ball and I felt like the wind was a little bit more into, so I was going to have like one club longer, and then I was like, I just want to stick to my plan A, and then I hit it.”

“I don’t think it was a really bad shot, but just maybe ball drew more than I expected, then there was a really strong right-to-left wind.” 

Nasa had six consecutive one-putt greens, made two Eagles and five birdies in her round of eight under 64;

“Finally, on the final round of the tournament, I was able to play my game today.”

 “When I did finish, I didn’t think I’d be in the playoff.”

“Well, they’re both major champs, they’re both great players, and when So Yeon made her putt, I had to give my hat off to her.”
