Georgia Hall makes flying start to storm-affected Evian Championship

Georgia Hall makes flying start to storm-affected Evian Championship

The great farce of the 2017 Evian Championship - the final major of the season - descended ever further on the second day when world No 3 Sung Hyun Park played her first five holes in six-over only to end up signing for an eight-under 63.

While the resetting of scores was beneficial for some, the early leaders Thursday felt the opposite effect.

Ryu suffered a six-shot swing having been two-under and sharing the lead with Korda on Thursday when play stopped.

If Park wins she will replace Ryu at the top of the game's rankings, which will only add to the general discord.

"I forgot about yesterday", Park said. "What's done is done".

A new day, a fresh start to the final women's major of the season, and it seemed like a new Sung Hyun Park showed up Friday.

"The distance was 25 meters, so I was deciding whether I'm going to do chipping or putting, and I think after I made the shot, I was surprised, as well", said Park.

You'll want to pay attention to Ai Miyazato this week because it'll be the last time to see her in action.

The decision to re-boot the fifth and final major of this year's Ladies Professional Golf Association European Tour - which carries total prize money of $3.65 million (£2.76 million/€3.07 million) - received criticism from some players and observers, with the United States Jessica Korda, who was leading at two-under when play was scrapped, saying it "sucked". The 32-year-old won her first title at Evian Resort Golf Club in 2009, and won the event again in 2011. She posted a 66 on Friday, her low round at this championship, and sits just three-back of Park. Her only birdie came at the 16th.

"It actually feels good", Miyazato said after the first round.

The Metropolitan Police tweeted that they have not yet identified the attacker but an investigation is underway. Scotland Yard also reportedly commented on Trump's tweet saying that it was "unhelpful and pure speculation".


The Swede is tied for third at five under after a round that included six birdies and an eagle on the par-5 15th.

"Well, she says - that's actually what I'm trying to do, just keep knocking the door, and when it's time, it's time", Moriya said.

The illness hit her hardest around the U.S. Open, where she finished T-33. When the forecast continued to worsen, along with conditions questionable for players' safety, Thursday's round was canceled and the championship shortened to 54-holes.

American Paula Creamer was forced to withdraw on Friday with a sprained tendon in her left wrist.

She had started her first round with four bogeys and a double bogey, but when the tournament was rebooted to a 54-hole tournament, her disastrous start was obliterated.
