    Shin Ji-yai won the P&G Beauty Northwest Arkansas Championship title on Sunday, marking her third LPGA Tour victory of this year.

    The Korean golfer birdied the second playoff hole to defeat fellow Korean Yoo Sun-young and Angela Stanford of the U.S. Shin trailed behind the leading group by seven strokes at the beginning of the last day but shot a total of seven birdies to finish at nine-under-204.

    This is Shin's sixth LPGA Tour title and already her third victory this season after she won the HSBC Women's Championship in March and Wegman's LPGA in June.
