PITTSFORD - Park In-Bee downed Brittany Lincicome with a par at the first playoff hole to win a second-straight LPGA Championship title. The South Korean star claimed the fifth major title of her career. Three of those came in her stunning six-win 2013 campaign, but she hadn’t notched a win in 2014 until the Manulife Financial Classic in Canada in June. “I’m very happy to defend my title and actually have a second win of the year,” said Park, who couldn’t match Lincicome’s length off the tee but was able to compensate with other aspects of her game at Monroe Golf Club. “I think I had to hit a lot of shots closer from longer distance, obviously,” Park said. “I had to make a lot of putts.” Park, who started the day tied for second with Suzann Pettersen, fired a two-under par 70 for a 277 total.–AFP
