Amy Yang Amy Yang / Chung Sung-Jun/Getty Images Amy beat her compatriot on the first play-off hole, sinking a 15 foot birdie putt on the par five 18th, after both of them had completed the tournament at -9 under par. Amy said it had been a long wait for her first LPGA Tour win; “I have been waiting for this championship for a long time, and I'm really happy get it in my home country, I think still I can't believe it.” Hee Kyung was disappointed to lose out in a play-off, again; " I mean, unfortunately this is third time, I guess, and I couldn't win at the playoff, but I played really well last two days. Just I think the big miss was No. 14 hole, I missed short putt. That was a big one that I could not win. I'm really happy for Amy.  She was waiting for really long time.  I think I can wait more than her.  I know it's going to be coming soon for me, so I will just wait and do my things.  I played really good last week and this week as well.  I know it's going to come soon.  I'm sure there will be more chance for me to get at that time top, so I'll just believe.  My wedding is coming soon and I'm really excited that I could play very well in front of my family and fiancee. That was happiest thing of my life." Michelle Wie made a long-awaited return to form, finishing tied third with Sei-Young Kim and Suzann Petterson, the three of them finished at -8 under par. Michelle was the top American while Suzann was the top European in the contest. Michelle said she had been nervous, because it had been a while since she had been in contention, actually nearly three years; “I haven't been in contention to be a while so I was a little bit nervous, but talking to Jane, it really calmed my nerves down a lot. You know, it's just always fun playing with a friend out there. You know, like I said, at the beginning of the season, it's coming along.  It's just taking some time to get together. I feel like my game is finally coming together slowly, I have just been patient with my game and working hard at it. It’s just nice to see that it paid off this week, and hopefully I can finish strong next week.”
