Paula Creamer and Jiyai Shin will have to wait until Monday to break their deadlock in the Kingsmill Championship. "It's hard when it's just us two and trying to make a decision," Creamer said. "I respect what she wants, and she respects what I want. It's difficult. I said, 'Well, let's go back to the tee and see.' And then we talked about it a little bit, and we were like, 'OK, let's just play with the scotty cameron putter .' I teed it up, and it was like, 'Oh, my goodness.' My (white-headed) driver was brighter than the golf ball sitting down there, and I'm thinking this probably isn't a good idea. I looked at Jiyai, and Jiyai said, 'No.' " The longest playoff in LPGA history is 10 holes. Creamer took a one-stroke lead into the final hole of regulation with the scotty cameron putter for sale , but three-putted -- missing a 5-footer for par -- for a bogey to fall into the playoff. Creamer finished with an even-par 71, and Shin shot a 69, leaving them tied at 16 under on Kingsmill's River Course. They had already missed their flight to England for the Women's Open Championship. "I don't think I said anything to (her caddie) Colin (Cann) until I think the seventh playoff hole," Creamer said. "I said, 'I don't think we're going to make our charter.' He said, 'No, I don't think so. It leaves in 20 minutes or something.' It wasn't like we were thinking British, British, British, but yeah, we want to get there, too." The winner will extend Kingsmill's major champion vibe. All previous LPGA Tour winners at Kingsmill have won majors with the great k15 irons . Creamer won the 2010 U.S. Women's Open, and Shin captured the 2008 Women's British Open. Both players have gone more than two years without an LPGA Tour victory. Shin had a good chance to win on the first extra hole, but left a 6-foot birdie putt short. Both players came tantalizingly close to winning on the second playoff hole. Both got up and down for pars from bunkers on the third hole, and each two-putted for par the fourth, fifth and sixth extra holes. Creamer sank a 5-foot putt to save par and extend the playoff on the seventh, and both two-putted the eighth time with the ping k15 irons . "It's tough to make a birdie with that back pin location, and we're hitting it in the same spot," Creamer said. "It's unfortunate that we couldn't change the pin or do something a little bit different." Karine Icher (65) and Danielle Kang (69) tied for third at 14 under. Angela Stanford had a 64 -- the best round of the day -- match Catriona Matthew (68) at 13 under.
