Brittany Lang wins maiden LPGA event

American Brittany Lang won a playoff against three opponents at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic in Waterloo, Ontario for her first LPGA Tour title on Sunday.

Lang shot a 16-under 286 to tie with three South Korean players Hee Kyung Seo, Inbee Park and Chella Choi but she outlasted them all on the playoff making birdie on the par-5 18th on three consecutive occasions.

Lang turned professional in July 2005, shortly after her T2 finish at the U.S. Women's Open but it took her an unexpected long time since then to win her maiden tournament.

The 26-year-old from Richmond, Virginia was overjoyed to finally get one heck of a monkey of her back.

"I can't believe it took me seven years to win a tournament out here," said Lang.

"I hadn't been that good under pressure and I'm getting better, and I'm so thankful that it happened this week and I'll only get stronger from here."

After hitting her approach into a bunker on the third extra hole, Lang showed the wherewithal to get back within six feet of the hole for her winning putt.

"I just tried to stay down in the putt and have nice tempo," Lang added. "I haven't been in this position much. I'm just trying to learn.

"I can't believe I finally won. I've had my chances and I still can't believe I did it."
