All pars for first play-off group
Wichanee Meechai, Savannah De Bock, Hayley Davis, Emma Allen and Lottie Woad got the 13-player play-off under way and all five walked away from the first extra hole with pars.
Woad will be the most relieved after hitting her drive into a bunker. She held her nerve to hole a magnificent 10ft putt for a four to keep her hopes alive.
Davis hit her second shot over the back of the green but almost holed her chip back on, while Allen's putt for birdie came up just short.
Two bogeys in group two
The second group have just finished the first play-off hole, the fifth, with bogeys for Lucy Li, who hit her approach shot over the back of the green, and Virginia Elena Carta, who three-putted. There were pars for Ingrid Lindblad and Kelsey Bennett.
Lee through as three bow out
What started as a 13-person play-off for five places is now down to nine players competing for four spots.
Mi Hyang Lee has qualified after birdieing the first play-off hole with a superb 15ft putt.
Lucy Li, Virginia Elena Carta and Lydia Hall each bogeyed the same hole and have been eliminated.
One place still up for grabs
Who will claim the final place at the Al Women's Open? Lottie Woad, Savannah De Bock, Wichanee Meechai, Emma Allen and Maddie Szeryk are battling it out to complete the field.
And then there were three
Emma Allen and Lottie Woad are out of the play-off after bogeys on the third extra hole.
So it's now between Savannah De Bock, Maddie Szeryk and Wichanee Meechai for the final qualifying place.
What drama at Hankley Common!
Remarkable scenes as play-off continues
This is incredible. All three remaining players birdie the fourth extra hole and, despite the fading light, the play-off will continue!
The end of the day
This image gives you an idea of why the play-off will have to resume in the morning.
Play-off to be completed tomorrow
The final place in the field for the Al Women's Open will be decided on Tuesday morning!
Wichanee Meechai bogeyed the fifth extra hole to be eliminated, but Savannah De Bock and Maddie Szeryk could not be separated as they each made pars.
It's simply too dark to continue at Hankley Common, so De Bock and Szeryk will return tomorrow to determine who gets the last spot at Walton Heath.
11 already through from Final Qualifying
In case you missed it, 11 players have already booked their place at Walton Heath through Final Qualifying.
Chloe Williams, Emma Grechi, Gina Kim, Anna Foster, Kylie Henry, Daniela Darqued and Wei-ling Hsu were the top seven finishers in regulation play, before Mi Hyang Lee, Ingrid Lindblad, Hayley Davis and Kelsey Bennett progressed from a play-off that started with 13 players battling it out for the final five spots. De Bock and Szeryk played five extra holes last night before it became too dark to continue, forcing the play-off into a second day.
Almost time for play-off to resume
It's almost time for the Final Qualifying play-off to resume. Savannah De Bock and Maddie Szeryk are the last two players in contention. They will continue a sudden death play-off for the last spot in the AIG Women's Open field! Stay with us for live updates from Hankley Common.
No trouble from the tee
De Bock tees off first and finds the first cut to the right of the fairway. She's still in a decent spot there. Szeryk then hits a lovely drive down the left half of the fairway. Both players are almost equidistant from the flag and have around 235 yards to the centre of the green. The pin is at the back of the putting surface.
Szeryk close to hole-out eagle!
De Bock's approach from approximately 90 yards is a good one and she'll have around 10 feet for a birdie four.
Szeryk asks her opponent to mark her ball .. and then almost holes out from the fairway! Her ball looks to be no more than four feet away.
De Bock responds and play-off continues
That is truly outstanding from Savannah De Bock! After seeing Szeryk almost hole-out for eagle, the teenage Belgian rolls in a 10-footer for a four. Szerk also converts from close range, so the play-off will continue.
De Bock piles pressure on
De Bock hits a beautiful chip to a couple of feet. Szeryk hits a great escape from her plugged lie, but she has 12 feet left and will almost certainly need to make it.
Savannah De Bock qualifies
The last spot in the AIG Women's Open field goes to Savannah De Bock! Last year's European Amateur Champion converts her short putt for par after Szeryk was unable to make her lengthier putt. After seven extra holes - including two this morning - the play-off is finally over and our Championship field is set.
A celebratory hot chocolate
Savannah De Bock is going to celebrate in style after qualifying for the AIG Women's Open this morning.
"Yeah I'm gonna have a hot chocolate," said the 17-year-old. "I'm really excited."
"We just have to do our best and we'll see!" It worked out for Savannah De Bock as she took the final spot at this year's AIG Women's Open.
And Now on Walton Heat
