The 22-year-old managed to regain her composure and forced a playoff with So Yeon Ryu, which she lost on the first hole.
But Ryu prevailed in the first sudden-death hole, netting her $405,000 for first place. LPGA rules officials told Thompson she was being hit with a pair of two-shot penalties from an action Saturday, taking Thompson from a two-shot lead to a two-shot deficit in the LPGA's first major championship of the year.
Ryu played consistently, carding four consecutive sub-70 rounds.
Asked about dealing with the memories of past year, the world No 6 added: "It will surely be there and it has been".
"It was a great final round", said Pettersen, a 15-time LPGA Tour victor.
Unfortunately for Lexi Thompson, the ruling she learned about walking off the 12th green Sunday at the ANA Inspiration was anything but a joke. Win here, you become a member of one of the world's most exclusive golf clubs and can come back and play in this tournament as long as you like.
She came into the ANA Inspiration as the money leader with US$387,166 (S$541,161) and the scoring leader at 67.938 strokes per round.

A television viewer alerted officials that Thompson marked her ball and then put it back in an improper place before her putt on the 17th green in the third round.
"To penalise her the two strokes and then two for signing an incorrect scorecard. you talk about following the letter of the law and they did, but did they do it in the spirit of the game?"
"It was disappointing not to make birdie on the last to join the playoff". Most impressively, he responded from his quadruple bogey by carding a birdie on two of the next three holes. She sank a 16-foot birdie putt on No. 13 to tie for a lead that later briefly went to a five-way tie. We both played really well.
"It's a amusing game", Johnson said.
"I would say that Phil has a lot better chance of winning this year than I did when I was 46", Nicklaus said. "I don't feel like I can fly under the radar anymore, but at the same time, it has sort of felt that way to me and it has been nice to be able to prepare and just go about my business and try to get ready for this tournament".
"I've got a lot of confidence in my game right now, especially with the way I've been playing the last few tournaments", said Johnson, who took over as world number one in February.
Speaking to the Golf Channel, Thompson said: "It is unfortunate with what happened, I did not mean that at all, I had no idea that I did it. I can't do anything about it, so why would I think about it?' That mentality that the bad shot never happened is what Tiger had, is what Phil (Mickelson) has to have". I will do all I can to see all the positives and to grind it out like in 2015.
