A birdie on the 18th hole means South Korea's Ryu So-yeon has a three shot lead over the rest of the field going into the final day at the Women's PGA Championship in Chicago.

On the first playoff hole, Ryu drained a 20-footer for birdie and Park responded to extend with a 15-footer.

Park's previous major victory came at the U.S. Women's Open in 2017, a historic season in which she also grabbed the Rookie of the Year award and the money title while sharing the Player of the Year honors with Ryu.

"Golf is definitely a amusing game because yesterday I thought I hit it just really, really ideal, like I just couldn't ask more, and I shot three-under", she told reporters.

She simply could not contain her emotions after winning her second major championship - and doing it in such dramatic fashion.

"After I won the ANA Inspiration, I started to dream about becoming a grand slammer", said Ryu, who turned 28 on Friday. The two South Koreans and Canadian Brooke Henderson, who was sitting at eight-under, were placed in the final group, and they were forced to get an early start at 9:31 a.m.

Again, Ko started the back nine in fine fettle, with a birdie on the 11th, before a double bogey on the 12th saw the Kiwi slip once again. Ryu is playing with plenty of confidence after collecting her first win of 2018 at the Meijer Classic two weeks ago.

Park managed to dig the ball out at the water's edge and save par. "I was really happy, and I couldn't help that".

However, Hataoka was the first to drop out of the playoff, though she made par. She finished the hole with a double-bogey 5, dropping her into a three-way tie at 10 under with Park and Hataoka. Ryu and Park traded birdies to set up a one-on-one showdown to decide the tournament. "I think I lack that sense of tension". "Keep improving and one day I want to lift that trophy". She knows what she has to do, and she took a big step Saturday.

In the event of a draw, the two sides' fair-play record could decide who finishes top, with England boasting the advantage ahead of kick-off.

"To be honest, I got less nervous during the playoff", she said.

Hataoka rolled her putt way right and was eliminated from contention.

"I tried to make as many birdies as I can, and I know it's hard out there with the wind being a little bit more up than yesterday", Ko said.

Hataoka could not then match her two rivals and watched on as Park clinched the title.

That means the country has little to gain from a deal to raise OPEC output, unlike top oil exporter Saudi Arabia. That crimped the country's ability to export crude, limiting supply and pushing up global prices.
