Sun-Ju Ahn wins playoff in LPGA Tour's Toto Japan Classic
SHIMA, Japan (AP) Sun-Ju Ahn won the Toto Japan Classic on Sunday for her first LPGA Tour victory and 20th Japan LPGA title, beating fellow South Korean player Ji-Hee Lee and American Angela Stanford with a birdie on the first hole of a playoff.
The 28-year-old Ahn closed with a 5-under 67 at Kintetsu Kashikojima to match Stanford and Lee at 16-under 200. Stanford also shot 67, and Lee had a 66.
Ahn also won the Japanese tour's Century 21 Ladies in July.
The 37-year-old Stanford won the last of her five LPGA Tour titles in 2012. She dropped to 1-4 in playoffs, the first in the 2003 U.S. Women's Open.
South Korea's Jenny Shin, the second-round leader, had a 70 to finish a stroke back.
