South Korea's Park Sung-hyun won the KPMG Women's PGA Championship following the first three-way play-off in the tournament's 63-year history.
She beat compatriot Ryu So-yeon and Japan's Nasa Hataoka after they finished level on 10 under par at Kemper Lakes near Chicago.
Play was suspended for 20 minutes during the play-off in poor weather.
But Park secured her second major in less than a year with birdies on each of the two play-off holes.
The 24-year-old, last year's US Women's Open champion, defeated compatriot Ryu, denying her bid to reclaim the world number one ranking.
Fifth-ranked Ryu and sixth-ranked Park each birdied the first play-off hole, the par-four 18th, while Nataoka was eliminated with a par.
The South Koreans, who shared LPGA Player of the Year award in 2017, reached the green at the par-four 16th, the second play-off role, when play was suspended for dangerous weather.
When play resumed, Ryu missed her birdie putt and Park made hers for the victory.
England's Charley Hull hit a five-under-par 67 to move up the leadboard on the final day, eventually finishing four shots off the leaders on six under for the tournament.
