Spectators at golf tournament often direct gaze toward Trump

Bedminster: South Korean golfer Sung Hyun Park has won the US Women's Open by two strokes at Trump National for her first major championship. Yang curled in a long birdie putt at 17 to book her spot in the final pairing Sunday.

"I did not have the best first and second rounds", Park said through a translator, per Sirak.

"I still can not believe this happened", Park said. "That's how it probably came and I'm happy for it".

Park, who finished tied for third at last year's U.S. Women's Open, took home $900,000 of a $5 million purse.

Blacksburg's Lanto Griffin, who was tied for ninth after shooting 66-65 the first two rounds, finished 74-72 and settled for a tie for 74th.

Choi held the lead alone at one point and also shared the lead. With three holes left, her chance for victory vanished when her tee shot at the par-3 16th found the water. Feng, trying to become the first wire-to-wire victor since 1977, also held a share of the lead on the back nine Sunday but stumbled on the 18th hole with a triple-bogey 8 to close with a 75, falling to T-5.

It was a far cry from a year ago when Park hit into the water on the 18th hole at CordeValle in California and missed a playoff with eventual victor Britanny Lang and Anna Nordqvist by two shots.

A birdie at 12 gave Park a share of the lead along with Choi and Feng.

Shortly after the crowd at No. 16 sighed at Choi's ball sinking into the water, a bigger crowd let out a roar at the 17th-hole green.

"I did pretty well until the last hole", Feng said. "I just couldn't get the line and the speed together".

That started her blood pumping faster, leading to an adrenaline-fueled shot over the green after laying up on the par-5 18th.

She was four-over after the front nine and was even for par in the competition.

"I just have to stay focused and play my game". "And I think that happened in my third and fourth round and maybe that led me to the championship". "Because whenever I was slightly shaken, he would put me back by saying small jokes or assuring me or a pep talk".

Feng lost her hold in the lead for the first time when she bogeyed the sixth hole, but she was 1 under for the rest of her round until she misfired at the finish.

So far, everything has been working for her. "Last year, I just made the cut so actually this year is such an improvement". The 17-year-old had a two-shot lead with nine holes to play and needed a birdie at 15 to regain a piece with Park.

Choi is a member of the Korean national team and is No. 2 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, and no stranger to success at a young age, tying for seventh at the LPGA's ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open earlier this year. And Park has inserted herself into the conversation about the best players on the planet.
