Korea's Park on golf championship win

Korea's Park on golf championship win

With a final-round 67, South Korean's Sung Hyun Park finished off a furious 36-hole rally to claim victory in the 72nd U.S. Women's Open, her first on the LPGA Tour.

The 23-year-old LPGA rookie shot a five-under 67 with six birdies and one bogey in the final round.

Feng, who was the leader after the first three rounds and carried a one-shot edge into the final 18 holes, triple bogeyed the final hole.

After turning with a two-under 34 on Sunday, Park came home with birdies on the 12th, 15th and 17th holes to finish with a 11-under 277, outpacing amateur Hye-Jin Choi (71) by two strokes.

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.

Park, 23, opened with a one-over 73 at Trump National Bedminster on Thursday to put herself seven shots off the lead of China's Shanshan Feng.

Choi is trying to become the first amateur to win the U.S. Women's Open since Catherine Lacoste of France in 1967.

World number one Ryu So-yeon (70) and Hur Mi-jung (68) were tied for third at seven under.

The same report claims that Xiaomi will announce the pricing on July 26, on the same day when Meizu is announcing the Meizu Pro 7. The design of the phone is a lot like the OnePlus 5 or the Oppo R11 which are considered to be iPhone 7 plus design copies.

As the poker-faced Park made her way from the 18th green to the scoring tent, she paused to wave and bow towards U.S. President Donald Trump, who looked down from his bullet-proof, glass-enclosed private box. Feng had a birdie on the final hole Saturday afternoon, but she has a total of 10 overall through three rounds.

". Throughout this tournament, I felt that I was getting the good touch and the good feel that I was going to have a good shot". She showed maturity beyond her years and hung tough until fanning a weak fade into the water short and right of the 16th green, making a double bogey that ended her chances. Of course, I did have many winnings in other tournaments, but winning here at U.S. Open means so much more.

Feng, trying to complete a wire-to-wire victory, was frustrated by her putting until the par-five last.

She can float as a major champion. "Putting didn't really work today", said the Chinese world No. 6, victor of seven LPGA Tour events including the 2012 LPGA Championship. "And I'm happy for it".

Feng could become the first US Women's Open wire-to-wire victor since American Hollis Stacy in 1977. And 16 and 17 I hit great shots into the green but I guess they weren't close enough so I still missed them.

Yang, 27, said all her near misses at the championship would not get her down. And Park has inserted herself into the conversation about the best players on the planet.

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