Last year, the five Majors in women's golf all had different winners.
South Korea's Park Sung-hyun has a share of the halfway lead at the LPGA Kia Classic after a second-round 66.
The 25-year-old from Seoul opened her final round with three successive birdies and made two more at six and seven but a bogey on the par-five eighth made her turn at four-under for the round.
South Korean Park's third victory of the season sees her vault from fourth in the rankings to supplant Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn at the top.
Park carded a closing three-under-par 69, while overnight leader Ryu battled to a 73 in strong winds.
Four weeks after missing the cut at the US Women's Open, where she was defending champion, the South Korean was more assured, particularly on the greens, as she gathered six birdies.
