BROKEN ARROW, Okla., May 4 (UPI) -- Paula Creamer rolled in an 8-foot birdie putt to defeat Juli Inkster in a playoff and win the SemGroup Championship Sunday in Broken Arrow, Okla.

World No. 1 Lorena Ochoa tied for fifth-place, ending her string of four straight tour victories.

Creamer's win, on the second playoff hole, was her sixth on the LPGA Tour.

Creamer shot a final-found 72 and Inkster had a 70, capped by a birdie on the final hole, to finish regulation play in 2-under-par 272.

"We have to have a little chat my putter and I, that's for sure," Creamer said after some unsteady putting in the final round.

"Jules (Inkster), what can I say? She definitely made me win it. It was some interesting golf out there. It was a good two-hole playoff.

Jeong Jang (68) and Angela Stanford (71) tied for third at 2-over 268.

Ochoa closed with a 69 and ended up 3-over-par with Dorothy Delasin and Brittany Lang.
