ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Minjee Lee's task was simple: A birdie on No. 18 would win her the tournament. It was a manageable par 5, the easiest hole on the course in the final round.

"I almost clipped the tree," Lee said. "I overcut it a little bit, but it finished out in a good position."
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — In-Kyung Kim began her round with a flurry of birdies, and Stacy Lewis — playing five months' pregnant — closed hers out in similar fashion.
