SUN-JU AHN WINS TOTO JAPAN CLASSIC

Dramtic victory after Sudden Death Playoff

Sun-Ju Ahn stuffed her 6-iron from 165 yards on the first playoff hole to five feet and calmly sank the birdie putt to claim her first LPGA victory at the TOTO JAPAN CLASSIC.

“I’m very happy,” Ahn said. “I didn’t think that I’d be able to win the tournament but it’s a nice surprise and I’m very happy.”

Ahn, Angela Stanford and Ji-Hee Lee all finished regulation at 16-under par and went back to the par-4 18th to decide the winner.

In the playoff, all three hit the green where Lee left a 50 footer short and Stanford’s 33-footer narrowly missed setting up Ahn for the victory.

“About halfway I thought it might have a chance but it broke more than I thought it would,” Stanford explained. “Sun-Ju hit a really good shot in there. If you stick it on 18, with this hole, you deserve birdie and you deserve to win.”

 “I haven’t thought much about that yet,” Ahn admitted. “I’m just going to enjoy this win and this moment.”

Jenny Shin, the leader going into the final round, finished a shot out of the playoff in solo fourth place, while Aryia Jutanugarn was fifth after shooting the round of the tournament, an 8-under 64.
