Park Sung-hyun Wins US Women's Open to Claim Her 1st Major

Park Sung-hyun claimed her maiden major title with a two-stroke victory at the U.S. Women's Open on Sunday.

Park, the event's seventh South Korean victor in 10 years, finished on 11-under at Trump National to defeat 17-year-old South Korean amateur Choi Hye-jin by two strokes.

Choi took the lead with a birdie on the seventh hole and had a chance to take a three-shot lead at the ninth, but her birdie putt slide by the hole.

That is when Park made her move, birdieing the 12th and 15th holes to join Choi atop the leader board.

Feng's only major victory came at the 2012 LPGA Championship, her first USA triumph.

However, Park tied for the lead with a 20-foot gain on the 15th. Her tee shot with a 7-iron at the par-3 16th fell into the water right of the green. Park had an 11-under par total of 277, two better than Choi.

Park helped her cause by finishing second among all players with an average of 256.2 yards off the tee, a necessity on a course that played Sunday at a robust 6,762 yards. Feng also led after both the first and second rounds.

"I wanted to believe in myself again for the final two rounds and I did". She rallied with a birdie on the par-5 18th to finish solo second.

Shanshan Feng of China, a seven-time LPGA Tour victor who had led since the opening round, hung in with a chance, needing to hole out from the fairway with her third shot for an eagle at the 18th to tie Park.

Feng shot a 1-under 71 to reach 9-under 207 at the president's Trump National Golf Club.

The 27-year-old from China was joined by Spain's Carlota Ciganda (70) and South Korean Lee Jeong-eun (71) at six under.

Choi wasn't upset about losing the $540,000 second-place money. Rodgers then bogeyed No. 17.

McCarron finished 18 under to beat Langer and Brandt Jobe by one shot. I am so thankful and happy.

Track Athlete Blamed "Frequent And Passionate" Kissing For Failed Drug Test
Salazar was unsure how many times they kissed between when she took the medicine and when Roberts was tested. She returned home and saw Roberts while still taking the medication Moxylong, which contained probenecid.

"Even if I could just come and play, that alone would be an honour, but I get the runner-up and it is unbelievably joyous thing for me".

"Rather than pushing myself for getting a birdie", she said through a translator, "I was just hoping to get through the hole, maybe with a par, and I was thinking maybe at the last hole that I might play a little aggressively".

Park continued to thrive on the LPGA of Korea Tour the following year, winning no less than six events.

The par meant that Feng needed an eagle on 18 to tie.

"I really didn't pay attention to the weather and just concentrated on every shot".

PGA EUROPE: Rafa Cabrera Bello birdied the first hole of a playoff with Callum Shinkwin to win the Scottish Open in Irvine, his first title in 5½ years. "That birdie made my day".

The immensely talented South Korean, Sung Hyun Park, has produced a magnificent weekend to win the US Women's Open at Trump National Bedminster in New Jersey. He finished with 73.

Bad weather then forced a lengthy delay, with some players still to finish their opening round when darkness forced an end to proceedings shortly after 8.30pm local time.

Top-ranked So Yeon Ryu (70) and fellow South Korean Mi Jung Hur (68) tied for third at 7 under.

Starting on the back nine, Feng reeled off a hat-trick of gains from the 11th and picked up further gains on the 17th and 18th to turn in 31.

She has only one bogey through 54 holes.

"Before the last hole I did pretty well".
