After a one-hole sudden death playoff at the Mission Hills Country Club, Yoo defeated fellow South Korean and Rolex Rankings No. 20 I.K. Kim. The two entered the playoff at nine-under par after Kim missed a tap-in putt for the win on the 18th hole.
Yoo became the second player from South Korea to capture a victory at the Kraft Nabisco Championship, joining Grace Park (2004). She became a Rolex First-Time Winner at the 2010 Sybase Match Play Championship and previously recorded 23 top-10 finishes since her rookie season in 2006 including a runner-up finishes at the 2009 P&G Beauty NW Arkansas Championship presented by John Q. Hammons and the Kia Classic last weekend. With this win, Yoo surpasses the $3 million LPGA career earnings mark and increases her total to $3,287,913.
