LPGA’s Shootout goes to a six-hole playoff


Hara Nomura two-putted for birdie on the sixth playoff hole Sunday for her third LPGA Tour victory after Cristie Kerr briefly took the lead on the 72nd hole in the windy Volunteers of America Texas Shootout in Irving, Texas. Nomura, a 24-year-old from Japan who lives in Hawaii, also birdied the par-5 18th hole at the end of regulation to force the playoff after giving up the lead for the first time with a double bogey at No. 17. Meanwhile, Kevin Kisner chipped in for eagle on the 18th hole as darkness fell, lifting himself and teammate Scott Brown into a Monday playoff at the Zurich Classic with Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith in Avondale, La.
