Sung Hyun Park erased a 2-shot deficit over the final four holes and birdied the first hole of a playoff with Lizette Salas to win the Indy Women in Tech Championship in Indianapolis.
The two-time major champion from South Korea reclaimed the No. 1 ranking in the world with her third LPGA Tour victory of the season and fifth of her career.
Park closed with a 4-under 68 to match Salas at 23-under 265 at Brickyard Crossing.
Salas appeared to be in control until hitting tee shots into the rough on the final two holes. She bogeyed No. 17 to fall into a tie with Park and missed a short birdie putt on No. 18 to close with a 70. In the playoff, the American slid a longer birdie putt just left of the hole.
Park then rolled her 10-foot birdie putt right into the center of the cup.
South Korea’s Amy Yang was third, a shot back after a 69.
Bart Bryant made a 25-foot birdie putt on the final hole in Endicott, N.Y., to win the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open for the second time in six years.
With playing partner Michael Bradley facing a 7-foot birdie putt that he would make, the 55-year-old Bryant rolled in the left-to-right breaking putt for a 7-under 65 and a 1-stroke victory.
Bradley, the second-round leader, bogeyed the par-4 15th in a 68.
Also the 2013 winner at En-Joie Golf Club, Bryant made six birdies in a nine-hole stretch from the third to the 11th and had six straight pars before the winning birdie putt on the par-4 18th.
Bryant finished at 16-under 200. The three-time PGA Tour winner’s only senior victories have come at En-Joie, the site of the PGA Tour’s B.C. Open from 1972-2005.
Tom Gillis (67) and Marco Dawson (68) tied for third at 13 under, a stroke ahead of Paul Goydos (65), Kenny Perry (67) and Mark Calcavecchia (67).
Paul Waring of England captured his first European Tour title on his 200th attempt by beating Thomas Aiken in a playoff to win the Nordea Masters in Molndal, Sweden.
Waring and Aiken were tied going into the final round at Hills Golf Club and each closed with a 2-under 68 to finish at 14-under 266. On the par-5 18th in the playoff, Aiken hit his tee shot into the water and Waring won with a par.
Maximilian Kieffer shot 65 and finished alone in third. Thorbjorn Olesen finished fourth.
