Kung, who beat top-ranked Yani Tseng in the third round and topped Hurst 2 and 1 in the semifinals, earned $225,000 in just missing her chance to win for the first time since 2008.
Pressel played a bogey-free 5 under for 17 holes in beating Hurst in the third-place match.
"It was extremely difficult,' said Pressel, who made $150,000. "It's certainly, the last place I wanted to be was on the golf course."
Hurst, who was looking for her first tour win, earned $112,500.
