Sunday, May 17, 2009
CLIFTON, N.J. – Ji Young Oh shot 2-under 70 and benefited from a couple of mistakes by Suzann Pettersen on the back nine to capture the $2 million Sybase Classic on Sunday by four shots.
The 20-year-old South Korean finished with a 14-under total on the Upper Montclair Country Club in winning her second LPGA title and earning $300,000.
Pettersen was tied for the lead after 11 holes but bogeyed the 12th hole after a bad drive and then handed Oh the title with bogeys on the final two holes.
Oh put an exclamation point on the win with a 7-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole.
Michelle Wie and Paula Creamer finished tied for third at 8-under after failing to mount a charge on a cold, raw day.
