Last Year: Hyo Joo Kim of South Korea sank a 12-foot birdie putt on the final hole to claim her first LPGA Tour victory and first major championship by one stroke over Karrie Webb of Australia. Kim, who was 19 at the time and became the third-youngest LPGA major champion, bounced back from her only bogeys on the 14th and 16th holes to finish at 4-under-par 68. Kim won nine times on the Korean LPGA Tour. Webb, who has won 41 times on the LPGA Tour, including seven majors, was in position to force a playoff but made a bogey on the 72nd hole to also finish at 68, including a double-bogey 5 on the second hole. The Hall of Famer caught Kim by carding five birdies in a span of seven holes through No. 15, but she missed a par putt from about 12 feet on the final hole after hitting her approach over the green.
