South Korea, Japan advance in UL International Crown

South Korea completed a rain-delayed sweep of Australia in the UL International Crown on Sunday, and Japan won a three-team playoff for the final spot in the singles session.

The pair of wins gave South Korea a Pool A-best eight points, just one back of England for the top spot. After Saturday's play was suspended due to thunderstorms, Sei Young Kim and So Yeon Ryu finished off a 3-and-2 victory over Australia's Karrie Webb and Rebecca Artis, and Amy Yang and In Gee Chun secured a 1-up win against Minjee Lee and Su Oh.

England, the United States and Taiwan qualified for Sunday's 10 singles matches before rain interrupted the third session, and Japan grabbed the last spot when Ayaka Watanabe eagled the par-5 16th in a playoff with Thailand and China. Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn almost sent the playoff to another hole, but she just missed on her own eagle attempt.
