American Morgan Pressel rallied from two holes down with three to play to eliminate No. 2 Na Yeon Choi on the first playoff hole in the third round of the Sybase Match Play Championship.
Top-ranked Yani Tseng, No. 10 seeded Amy Yang and No. 12 seeded Angela Stanford lost in the morning round on Saturday. That leaves No. 6-seeded Stacy Lewis as the only top-10 player in the original field of 64.

Tseng, who has won three times on the U.S. LPGA Tour this year, dropped a 3 and 2 decision when the 49th-seeded Kung birdied the 15th and 16th holes.
