But Jutanugarn managed to steady the ship to force the contest to sudden death as Kim failed to get up and down from a greenside bunker on the second hole (No.18). Jutanugarn's sister, Moriya, is also a professional player. And that makes her even more special.
And she likes digging through Mo's dresser and messing up the clothes after Mo folds them.
This is life with Ariya, where a mess can be such good fun. "Sisters can be like that".
"Everything is a drama with my sister", Mo said.
"It's kind of fun seeing that", she said.
The UCLA freshman finished with two under-par-286 for tied fifth place alongside Lexi Thompson of the US, Wei-Ling Hsu of Taiwan and Sarah Jane Smith of Australia.
This wild day was a ideal microcosm of Ariya's roller-coaster career. She nearly did both Sunday in the foothills of the Southern Appalachians.

Overnight leader, Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn, picked up a shot on the opening hole of her final round to move to 13 under par but a bogey a the second dropped her back to 12 under. I feel comfortable on the greens, which has been something that has been a little bit off lately.
Hyo-Joo Kim hits out of the bunker to the 18th green during the second hole of a playoff in the final round of the U.S. Women's Open.
Oh Su-hyun (68) sits at 6 under, alongside Ariya Jutanugarn, who was 1 under through eight holes in her second round.
So does their mother, Apple. "I thinks she likes the way we work together". Kim faced a hard, lengthy shot from the sand across the expanse of the green, and did a more than reasonable job with her attempt, but the door was ajar for Jutanugarn, who produced a spectacular up-and-down to win the Championship and complete one of the most tumultuous winning finishes in recent memory.
Garber, who played golf at Georgia, started the final round at the TPC Wakefield three shots behind Michael Johnson, who ran into trouble on the front nine and closed out that side with a double bogey.

She left her bunker shot well short and right of the cup and then watched Jutanugarn's third shot roll to within a tap-in range for a certain par. Cameras caught Jutanugarn applauding the shot. "I thought if I kept doing that it was going to make me happy".
"It's really tough for me because, you know, I didn't have good finish the last two holes".
Oh said her effort included "nothing outstanding" although she putted well and dealt calmly with the challenges of the soggy course.
"I just felt really easy", said Smith, who is seeking a first win since joining the tour in 2006.
Jutanugarn keeps learning more about herself with every bounce-back from adversity. They say, 'You can do it.
Jutanugarn may qualify for a doctorate in resilience after Sunday's bounce-back victory.
" I feel great and really excited", said 22-year-old Ariya, whose maiden Major was at the 2016 Women's British Open. "And I have learned". "Maybe years ago when she won the last event on the Futures Tour to get a card at the end of 2008".
