It is the birdie putt that created an extra game.
Ko Jin-young, who started the final round 4 strokes behind the leader, recorded 5 under par without a bogey, catching up with Lee Min-ji, a Korean-Australian who was in the lead, and took the match into overtime.

“Im Seong-jae, a Korean player on the PGA Tour, won the KPGA event last Sunday by a come-from-behind 5 strokes, but came from behind. Inspired by that, I thought I would have a chance too.”
