But she rallied – and with the crowd chanting her name, she birdied two of her next three holes. Visibly shaken, she then played a wonderful approach into the 18th to have a look at eagle. The putt would have fallen had her ball rolled another three revolutions. But the resulting birdie sent her to what became an unsuccessful playoff against So Yeon Ryu of South Korea.
