Park revives Evian Championship ambitions in controversial first round re-run

Park revives Evian Championship ambitions in controversial first round re-run

The American, who finished the day at the Evian Resort Golf Club four shots behind Park in joint fifth, told GolfDigest.com: "It sucked because I was playing so well yesterday, and some people weren't playing so well yesterday that are playing well today, and there's nothing I can do about that".

Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn watches her drive during the second round of the Evian Championship in France on Saturday.

In early August, McDonald - the former Mississippi State All-American - tied for 16th at the Women's British Open and won a season-best 39,943.

She claimed her third victory on tour, and first in seven years, at the Thornberry Classic at Wisconsin in July, when she admitted she nearly gave the game in 2015 and 2016 following seasons of struggle.

It came the day after slumping to six over par after nine holes before heavy rain caused the tournament to be re-scheduled over 54 rounds starting from this morning.

"I want to win my first tournament", Jutanugarn said.

On that occasion, she slipped back to finish tied 16th.

"That was a huge confidence boost, especially after struggling for a couple years and questioning whether I'd be playing much longer", said Kirk.

It was just rank, poor play from us that cost us goals. "Fans deserve better and that was my motivation to carry on this season". Former Everton midfielder Lee Carsley, part of Redknapp's backroom staff, will takeover as caretaker manager.

"Whether you're leading or one or two behind, I'm just happy to have a chance". "Golf is amusing; I wasn't expecting it for sure, but yeah, I kind of surprised myself even, and certainly since then, it's just, yeah, been nice".

The only sisters to have won on the LPGA Tour are Annika and Charlotta Sorenstam. "I just keep trying". Annika won 72 times, and Charlotta won once.

Song shot a bogey-free 5-under 65 on Saturday and sits four strokes behind leader Moriya Jutanugarn heading into tomorrow's final round of The Evian Championship.

Uehara, ranked 163 in the world, had seven birdies to move into contention.

"I wasn't feeling too good about my game when I started today, but I played great".

"Yeah, it's just nice to know you can still do it at 35 years old and as one of the older players out here", Kirk said.

"But now I think I'll play a few more years".

Overnight leader Park Sung-hyun tumbled down the order with a disappointing 73 - five bogeys hampering her progress as she joined Lydia Ko and Kim In-kyung three shots off the pace.
