Park clinches US Women's Open for first major title

NZ golfer Lydia Ko makes spectacular comeback in second round at US women's Open Experience worth more than money, says US Open runner-up Choi

In this Associated Press photo, Park Sung-hyun of South Korea holds up the winner's trophy after capturing the US Women's Open at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on July 16, 2017.

Feng will enter the final round of the tournament Sunday afternoon with a one stroke lead as she shot a 1-under 71 and had a one-stroke lead with a nine-under 207 over a tight field that has the top six golfers within four strokes of each other at Trump National Golf Course.

Park, who won seven times on the Korean LPGA Tour in 2016, saved par at the par-five 18th with a superb chip from a tight lie behind the green to post a five-under-par 67. There was a peaceful protest after he arrived at his box near the 15th green shortly after 3 p.m. Protesters bought $45 tickets to the event and, representing a few different groups, silently rallied against the U.S. Golf Association's decision to hold the tournament at a Trump-owned property. She ended with a double bogey and basically lost her chance of becoming the second amateur to win the Open.

"Well, I mean it would have been nice if I could get the money, but I think my primary goal was to come here and compete, so for me, getting this second place in runner-up actually means more to me", she said.

Park is tied for second with Thompson in the scoring average with 69.120 strokes per round, as Ryu remained the leader at 69.102 strokes on average per 18 holes.

"I did pretty well until the last hole", Feng said, per Ron Sirak of the LPGA's official website.

She is a clear leader for Rookie of the Year honors, and Sirak notes she could become the first woman since 1978 to win Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year.

Liverpool and Chelsea reportedly battling to complete £65million signing
The future of Diego Costa also still remains uncertain with the Spanish worldwide reportedly favoring a return to former club Atletico Madrid.

"Coming to this week, I didn't have any expectation at all". Park played the weekend in 67-67 after an opening-round 73.

Her 9-under 279 total was the lowest by an amateur in the history of the U.S. Women's Open. Feng had a birdie on the final hole Saturday afternoon, but she has a total of 10 overall through three rounds. "I'll keep trying. I'm going to do the same things and see what happens", she said.

Yang, who had three birdies on the back nine for a 33, and Choi, an amateur teenager, both finished with a 70. "I just - I wanted to bring out my "A" game".

Feng watched Park complete her round before finishing with a triple bogey for a 6-under 282, leaving her tied for fifth place with Carlota Cignada of Spain and Jeongeun6 Lee of South Korea. "Based on that good experience that I had last year, I think I was able to garner the championship this year". "At 18. I hit it really close and finally made a birdie". McCarron finished 18 under to beat Langer and Brandt Jobe (72) by one shot, making up a six-shot deficit in the final round.

Yang, a top-four finisher in the last three Women's Opens, rolled in a 20-foot left-to-right birdie curler at the 17th hole, while No. 2-ranked amateur Hye Jin sank a long birdie putt at the par-three 16th hole. Yang curled in a long birdie putt at 17 to book her spot in the final pairing Sunday. It is a very exciting championship even if it makes me go to bed a little late!

"I think compared to a year ago, I could say that I played probably a little bit more relaxed", said Park.
