U.S. Women's Open headed for playoff between South Korean rivals
The U.S. Women's Open is headed for a playoff.
South Korean rivals So Yeon Ryu and Hee Kyung Seo are getting set for a three-hole playoff Monday morning in Colorado Springs, Colo.
Seo finished play on Sunday at three-under 281 for a one-shot lead over Ryu, who had three holes left Monday. Ryu made birdie on the 18th to force the playoff.
