Sung Hyun Park opens account in US Women's Open

Sung Hyun Park opens account in US Women's Open

Choi closed with 71 to finish as low amateur for the second straight year.

Shinkwin had to settle for second and a place in next week's British Open at Royal Birkdale, while Frenchman Matthieu Pavon also grabbed a spot with a final-round 66 that saw him finish three strokes adrift of the leading duo.

Feng was full of praise for Park after her victory.

Feng snapped a run of 23 consecutive pars with a birdie at the 18th hole to reclaim the lead over a wave of South Korean challengers.

Park birdied the 15th to move into a tie for the lead and the 17th to open a two-shot edge after Choi made a double bogey on the previous hole.

Cabrera-Bello triumphs in Open tune-up
Ian Poulter had shared the lead going into the final round but fell away with a 74 and a tie for ninth place. He was unable to get up-and-down and the resulting bogey saw him finish 72 holes tied with Cabrera-Bello.


That left Feng needing an eagle at the last to force a play-off, but her triple bogey sent her tumbling down the leaderboard.

"Well, I mean it will be nice if I could get the money but I think my primary goal was to come here and compete so, to me, getting this second place as runner-up actually means more to me and it's a greater honour for me", Choi said through an interpreter.

The 20-year-old finished her round with one-over 73 and is in a tie for ninth in the tournament.

At the end of the four days, which were filled with rumors of President Donald Trump's arrival, reactions to his presence, buckets of rain and pockets of mouth-drying humidity, there was Sung Hyun Park standing just below the green at the 18th hole. She sought to enhance her earlier success in the first two rounds. Rodgers then bogeyed No. 17. The 51-year-old made up a six-shot deficit in the final round to capture his first major on the Champions Tour. 2, 5 and 8, then added three more on Nos. But I was happy to see a lot of Chinese fans come out. "I was just trying to get through the hole, maybe with a par".

"I think one of the most hard things is to to stay focused and keep that concentration level up", she said, "because I know that once you lose it, your playing is going to go just sideways".

China's Shanshan Feng extended her lead with a second-round 70 at the US Women's Open in New Jersey.

The 27-year-old, who previously enjoyed major success at the 2012 Women's PGA Championship, held a one-shot lead after a weather-affected opening day.

Feng shot a 1-under 71 to reach 9-under 207 at the president's Trump National Golf Club. "But I had to refocus back for the two remaining holes". The weather really hasn't bothered me.

The Chinese world number six carded a bogey-free 66, which included five birdies on the back nine, to finish six under par in Bedminster.

The all-business Park plays with a poker-face intensity and crushes the ball with a flowing power swing that takes dead aim at her target.

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.
