Lindberg out in front at ANA

Lindberg out in front at ANA

The ace, followed by a birdie on the 18th, saw her finish the round level-par, seven shots off the overnight leader, Sweden's Pernilla Lindberg.

That infringement had led to a four-stroke penalty - two for replacing her ball in the wrong spot for a tap-in putt, and two more for signing her third-round scorecard before the violation was brought to the attention of officials. "I had fun. I went out there today and said, 'How often do you get this chance?'" I'm just going to enjoy it, and that's what I did". "I just struggled on the greens". She has delivered one clutch shot and putt after another, through all four rounds. Jennifer Song dropped out with a par on the third extra hole, and Park and Lindberg chose to play one more hole in fading light.

And four playoff holes wasn't enough to boil this championship down to one deserving victor, with so many players giving themselves chances to the bitter end of regulation. She holed out for eagle from 100 yards on the par-4 15th to cap the run.

"I've played a lot of golf in my life and I just feel like the pieces are kind of falling together", Lindberg said.

" ... I shot something very low for those four days (in her victory here in 2013)".

We will find out Sunday if the experience of winning is overrated, or if the peculiar stress of the final round of a major golf tournament really does matter. "Every time I'm there, I'm just so much more comfortable".

South Korean Park, the U.S. Women's Open champion, joined Swede Pernilla Lindberg at 12-under 132 on another morning of ideal conditions at Mission Hills.

Incredibly, Park played her last seven holes at 5-over par, watching her momentum turn into a fight for every shot. "Going forward, the more times you play well, the more people will recognize your name".

On the third extra hole, Park hit a wedge from the rough to 1 1/2 feet to set up a birdie, and Lindberg made a 5-footer. She also missed a four-foot par try on 13.

African American professional golfer Mariah Stackhouse said the high cost of playing the game remained the primary reason for the lack of diversity in the sport. "It's a situation she's only been in a couple of times and I thought she handled it really well".

"I haven't let myself get frustrated that I haven't yet had the success that I wanted", said the 31-year-old. "I did the best I could today". He shot 67 and was two shots back.

"Yesterday I wasn't prepared for it at all", said Wie, victor four weeks ago in Singapore. "I knew exactly what I was getting into".

American Jessica Korda (68) was best of the rest on nine-under. She won last month in Thailand in her return from reconstructive jaw surgery.

"Oh, (it's) so hard", said Korda, of pursuing a major win. "That's the difference out here".

Stanford sophomore Albane Valenzuela was 6 under after a 71.

PGA: In Humble, Texas, Ian Poulter put himself in position for a last-minute invitation to the Masters after a near miss last week, shooting a 7-under 65 on Saturday to surge into a share of the lead at the Houston Open. "I put a good fight out there".

Thai teenage amateur Atthaya Thitikul hit a 72 for 2 under-par-214.
