Brittany Lang won the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic on Sunday for her first LPGA Tour title, birdieing the par-five 18th three straight times in a playoff.

American Lang missed a birdie try on the hole in regulation, leaving her tied with Hee Kyung Seo, Inbee Park and Chella Choi at 16-under 286.

Choi was eliminated on the first extra hole, and Park dropped out on the second.

Lang closed with her second straight 67, Choi had a 63, Seo a 67, and Park a 69.

Lang, Seo and Park, playing together in the final threesome at Grey Silo, all had a chance to win in regulation but settled for pars on the finishing hole to set up the playoff.
