Shin wins Kingsmill Championship

The two-year winless drought is over for Jiyai Shin who outlasted Paula Creamer in a lengthy nine hole playoff to win the Kingsmill Championship. In the fifth playoff this season, Shin and Creamer were forced to return to the par-4 16th at The River Course Monday morning to determine a winner.

The playoff marks the second in Kingsmill Championship history following the 2007 tournament where Suzann Pettersen defeated Jee Young Lee in three-holes.

The playoff also set a record for the longest playoff between two competitors with the other taking place at the 2004 LPGA Takefuji Classic where Cristie Kerr defeated Seol-An Jeon. The longest playoff in LPGA Tour history came at the 1972 Corpus Christi Civitan Open where Jo Ann Prentice defeated Sandra Palmer and Kathy Whitworth in 10 holes.

On the ninth playoff hole, both players hit routine drives in the fairway and Creamer left herself with a testy 30-foot birdie putt while Shin was faced with a 15-footer.

First up to play was Creamer and the 9-time LPGA Tour winner grazed the lip of the hole but had a tricky six foot putt coming back for par. Shin’s left-to-right birdie putt never saw the hole but the Korean left herself with an easy one-foot putt for par.

Creamer could not convert her 6-foot par putt and left the door open for Shin to knock in her 2-foot par putt for her ninth career LPGA Tour victory.
