Pittsford, N.Y. • Inbee Park successfully defended her title in the LPGA Championship, beating Brittany Lincicome on the first hole of a playoff Sunday to end the United States' major streak at three.

On the playoff hole on Monroe Golf Club's par-4 18th, Park hit her second into the rough behind the hole. Lincicome hit her approach to the left fringe, nearly identical to her position on the final hole of regulation when she made a bogey to fall in the playoff.

Lincicome chipped 6 feet past the hole and failed to convert for bogey. Park, the winner last year at Locust Hill in a playoff with Catriona Matthew, chipped to 3 feet and sank her par putt for her fifth major title and fourth in the last two seasons.



Park, from South Korea, finished with a 2-under 70 to match Lincicome at 11-under 276. Lincicome had a 71.
