Thompson hit with four-shot penalty in final round

Thompson hit with four-shot penalty in final round

South Korean So Yeon Ryu won her second major in freaky fashion Sunday, defeating Lexi Thompson on the ANA Inspiration's first playoff hole after LPGA officials assessed Thompson with a retroactive, four-shot penalty with six holes left at Mission Hills Country Club.

The organisation confirmed the video review was prompted by an email from a television viewer in a statement issued on Sunday evening.

She incurred a two-shot penalty for the breach and another two-shot penalty for returning an incorrect scorecard. Now, because her incorrect score resulted from a failure to include a penalty she wasn't aware of, she wasn't disqualified.

"Well it was an emotional day here for me, first off I do want to say what I had done was 100% not intentional at all I didn't realize I had done that", said Thompson.

I also want to thank the fans around the world who have reached out to me to offer their support, and for being there for me in this hard situation. "I felt strong through the finish".

Thompson was visibly shaken when the ruling dropped her from 16 under to 12 under and one shot off the lead. That meant a five-shot swing that saw her three-stroke lead vanish, dropping her back to a two-stroke deficit with just six holes to play.

Ryu birdied 18 to move in front.

"I just can not believe the situation", Ryu said.

"During play, I didn't even check the leaderboard but I thought Lexi played really, really well", Ryu said during her interview with LPGA after the round. "I think if you ask every single player, that wouldn't be a question". It's a very unfortunate situation.

North Carolina's "bathroom bill" repeal: who's satisfied?
It has threatened to keep siting its sporting events in other states as long as House Bill 2 remains on the books. California and NY had banned nonessential travel by state employees to North Carolina after HB2 became law.

What's astonishing about Thompson's penalty is she committed the violation the previous day and LPGA officials only learned about Thompson's violation because a television viewer brought it to their attention, according to The Associated Press.

When she was informed of what she had done by an official, she responded by saying "Is this a joke?"

"I'm excited about the opportunity ahead, which is now I can go back and really tear this golf course up. really create more great memories on the back nine of Augusta", he said.

Fans and fellow pros were unhappy with the LPGA's decision and let them know on Twitter.

"Viewers at home should not be officials wearing stripes", he wrote.

Russell Henley made 10 birdies in the final round, rallied from a four-shot deficit and closed with a 7-under 65 to win the Shell Houston Open and earn the final spot in the Masters.

This was a question posed to him Tuesday at the Masters: "You admirably criticized Muirfield when it took them so long to have women members".

Henley and Sung Kang were tied with six holes to play when Henley ran off three straight birdies with two short putts on par 5s and a 35-foot putt on the par-3 14th.

Suzann Pettersen finished third with Australia's Minjee Lee and Inbee Park of South Korea, on 13-under.
