From there, she chipped to within three feet and made the putt to save par. And the Ryder Cup player hit a fantastic shot into the final green when the two returned in the play-off to set up a tap-in birdie and secure the third Tour title of his career.

Shanshan Feng, who shared the lead with Choi coming into the round, was in second place until triple-bogeying No. 18.

Park completed 72 holes at 11-under 277 for her first win on the LPGA Tour, which she joined this year.

Bedminster: South Korean golfer Sung Hyun Park has won the US Women's Open by two strokes at Trump National for her first major championship.

The Korean dominance of women's golf, providing seven of the last 10 U.S. Women's Open winners, was evident with the nation providing eight of the top 10 finishers, including the two new faces at the top who could further extend that domination.

Choi is trying to become the first amateur to win the U.S. Women's Open since Catherine Lacoste of France in 1967.

Korean players dominated the majority of the leaderboard's top 10 at the third major of the year, with Mi Jung Hur and World No.1 So Yeon Ryu sharing third place on seven under. She trailed Feng by one at 8 under at the start of Sunday, and then Choi slowly pulled ahead and carried a two-stroke lead onto the back nine. "Putting didn't really work today", said the Chinese world No. 6, victor of seven LPGA Tour events including the 2012 LPGA Championship.

"Rather than pushing myself for getting a birdie", she said through a translator, "I was just hoping to get through the hole, maybe with a par, and I was thinking maybe at the last hole that I might play a little aggressively". "Overall, I think I had a great week". Park had just sunk a six-foot birdie putt, her sixth of the round, to push her score to 11 under and her lead to two strokes.

Choi and Yang each shot 70. She tied for 38th a year ago at CordeValle in California.

Yang, 27, said all her near misses at the championship would not get her down.

"I'll keep trying. I'm playing good, and I'm hitting the ball solid and making some putts. I just focus on my own game and let's see what happens".

Hye Jin said being paired with Yang had been a big help.

"She is definitely an experienced player", the teenager said.

The Korean LPGA Tour rookie had back-to-back 67s during the weekend to finish two shots clear of compatriot and amateur Hye Jin Choi, who was unable to recover from her double bogey on the 16 hole on Sunday after finding water from the tee. Park was in contention past year at the Women's Open at CordeValle but finished third.

"I was hitting the ball perfectly, and at 16, I tried to hit even more perfectly, which made it a missed shot instead of a ideal shot", Choi said through an interpreter.
