The third round was postponed on Saturday due to heavy rain and the tournament wars reduced to 54 holes.

Ko raved about the hard work from the maintenance staff at Oregon Golf Club, who spent countless hours over the last two days working to make the course playable. “This course was really amazing, perfectly clearing, and fairways and greens are really perfect,” she said. “I can’t wait to play for next year.”

“I really wanted to play yesterday, but we couldn’t play. I tried to make a bogey-free round today, and I made it,” said Ko. “I had a lot of missed shots and I had a lot of missed chipping or something, so I had to make great par saves, but I made it.”

Ko started the day with a one-shot advantage over Gemma Dryburgh. She made her first birdie at the 7th and increased her lead to three strokes after Dryburgh bogeyed the 3rd and 6th, and the lead grew to five with another birdie at the 10th.

Su Oh and Jeongeun Lee kept Ko in their sights, with Lee making eagle at the 18th to pull within three at 7-under. But Ko drained a 23-foot putt from the back of the green at 18 to punctuate the win.

“I was thinking, I just make two putt. Easy. But the ball goes in, so, who knows,” she said with a laugh.

Oh and Lee both earned the best finishes of their LPGA Tour careers with their tie for second. Oh had previously finished second three times, while Lee’s previous best finish was a tie for third.

“I played with kind of a slow start and hung in there and just I holed a really good par putt on 6 and then I kind of got the round going a little bit and then stiffed one on 7,” said Oh. “I hit it pretty good today after that. A few more putt drops then I would have been closer, but still pretty happy with how I played this whole week.”

Dryburgh struggled on Sunday, carding a 4-over 76 and finished tied for eighth at 3-under. European Solheim Cup star Carlota Ciganda, who played with Ko and Dryburgh in the final group, shot a 1-over 73 and tied for fifth at 4-under.
