In an 18-hole Monday playoff, Sandra Post won her only major title, defeating defending champion and LPGA president Kathy Whitworth by seven strokes.<ref name=sp1ip/><ref name=tkspbrd>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=news }}</ref> Post turned 20 earlier in the month; it was the first of her eight victories on the LPGA Tour. Through 2013, it remains the only women's major won by a Canadian.

This was the second consecutive LPGA Championship held at Pleasant Valley, and the second of seven in an eight-year stretch.
