Say what you will about the roller coaster final round Ariya Jutanugarn played on Sunday at the U.S. Women's Open. There's no doubt that the 22-year-old from Thailand earned every penny of her first-place prize money at Shoal Creek in Birmingham, Ala.

And a big check it is. The $900,000 first prize is the richest in all of women's golf.

Jutanugarn looked as if she would be able to deposit the money earn after expanding a four-stroke lead at the start of play on Sunday into a seven-stroke cushion at the turn. But the former World No. 1 found playing with such a large cushion to be harder than expected, losing all seven strokes to South Korea's Hyo-Joo Kim by the 72nd hole.

The pair played a see-saw two-hole aggregate playoff, then two more sudden-death holes before Jutanugarn won the championship with a par when they played the 18th hole for a third time.

It was the ninth win of Jutanugarn's career, and her second major championship victory. She now has earned $1,704,614 this season and $6,287,946 in her career, as she became the 43rd player in LPGA history to break the $6 million mark with her win on Sunday.
