No. 10 (First playoff hole)

· Feng and Beck both find the fairway off the tee on the first playoff hole. #tbirds

· Feng first to play, hits her 140-yd approach to the upper level, pin high and 30 feet away for birdie. #tbirds

· From 115 yds, Beck hits her approach short of the ridge, rolls to the front edge and has a difficilt 60 footer for birdie. #tbirds

· Beck’s great lag putt leaves her with a 2-footer for par. #tbirdsabout

· Feng leaves her downhill birdie bid 3 feet short, taps in for par. Beck follows suit and we head to the 2nd playoff hole. #tbirds

No. 11 (Second playoff hole)

· Flashback to 2009: Feng birdies No. 11 to defeat Sarah Brown on the 2nd playoff hole. Will history repeat itself? #tbirds

· Feng’s second shot on the par 5 sneaks into the rough, Beck lays 2 in the fairway. Both have about 100 yds for their 3rd shots.#tbirds

· Beck is first to play and has a better lie and a better angle. Can she capitalize? #tbirds

· Beck flies it over the flag, has a downhill 25 footer for birdie. #tbirds

· Feng’s aggressive approach finishes 10 feet below the front left hole location. #tbirds

· After Beck nestled her birdie putt within tap-in range, Feng burns the edge and taps in for par. Heading to the 3rd playoff hole. #tbirds

No. 12 (Third playoff hole)

· Beck bombs her drive 30 yards past Feng on the long par-4 12th hole. Advantage, Beck. #tbirds

· Feng misses long left, will have a tricky downhill chip from a downhill lie. Beck’s approach finishes pin-high, 15 ft from the pin. #tbirds

· Feng’s 40-ft downhill chip leaves her 6 feet for par. #tbirds

· Beck narrowly misses her birdie for the win, Feng responds by draining her long 6 footer. On to the par-3 13th. #tbirds

No. 13 (Fourth playoff hole)

· Feng puts on the pressure, hits her tee shot to 10 feet. Beck’s tee shot finds the deep greenside bunker. #tbirds

· Beck’s ball is away from the face, but she only has about 6 paces of green to work with. #tbirds

· A tough shot to say the least. Beck is on the green, but 45 feet past the hole for par, while Feng has a 10 footer for birdie. #tbirds

· Beck’s par attempt misses, Feng 2-putts her way to her 2nd straight #tbirds title.
