Lydia Ko had no excuses after she narrowly lost out on a third major triumph at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship on Sunday.
The New Zealand star would card a final round four-under 67, but Brooke Henderson lit up the back nine to tie with Ko on six-under for the event.
The world number one and the Canadian went back to the 18th tee for a playoff.
A superb second shot from Henderson left her three feet from the pin and when Ko missed her 24-foot birdie attempt, all eyes were on the 18-year-old as she rolled in a memorable putt for the win.
"I'm happy with the way I played…I just got outplayed," said Ko, before heaping praise on Henderson.
"For Brooke to shoot 65 on the final day at a major, at a course like this is very impressive."
Ko had a chance to pull ahead even further on the par three 17th after a brilliant tee shot, but would miss her four-foot birdie chance.
"I'm not really sure if I pushed it," added Ko.
"I didn't feel like it was a bad stroke."
