Yoo edges Kim in playoff for Mission Hills title

(Reuters) - South Korea’s Yoo Sun-young rolled in a 15-foot birdie putt on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to beat compatriot Kim In-kyung and win the Kraft Nabisco Championship on Sunday.

Yoo, who tied Kim at nine-under-par 279 after 72 holes, birdied the par-five 18th at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California, to claim her first major title.

Kim squandered a chance to win the first women’s major of the year in regulation when she missed a one-foot par putt at the final hole.
