17-year-old amateur misses chance to win US Women's Open

U.S. Women's Open- Final Round

U.S. Women's Open- Final Round

LPGA Tour rookie Park finished with pair of five-under-par rounds of 67 to claim the $900,000 first prize and finish what she started at last year's U.S. Women's Open at CordeValle in California.

Shanshan Feng leads the US Women's Open after the first day at Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey.

She didn't become the first amateur in 40 years to win the U.S. Women's Open, either.

In passing the presidential box on her way to the scoring area, Park received a gesture of two thumbs-up from President Trump, who watched from his private box for the third straight day. They were tied at 10 under when Choi leaned over the tee at the 16th hole, but her drive found the water, and the amateur's chances quickly dissipated.

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.

He says Pakistan has informed Afghan authorities and urged them to take similar measures on their side of the border. DG-ISPR Asif Ghafoor said that the military court had rejected Indian spy Kulbushan Jadhav's first appeal.

CHAMPIONS TOUR: Scott McCarron shot a bogey-free 6-under 66 and took advantage of an uncharacteristic crash by three-time defending champion Bernhard Langer to win the Constellation Senior Players Championship in Owings Mills, Maryland.

Deadlocked for the lead with Choi, Park sank a six-foot birdie putt at the par-4 17th, the fourth and final birdie of the round on the day's hardest hole, then chipped inches from the cup at 18 and made par to secure the triumph.

Sung Hyun Park poses with the trophy after the final round of the US Women's Open.

She stretched clear of the field on the back nine thanks to birdies at the 12th, 15th and 17th and then held her nerve at the 18th with a superb up and down from the back of the green to salvage par.

Yang, who had three birdies on the back nine for a 33, and Choi, an amateur teenager, both finished with a 70.

My view and opinion are that it opens itself up to nominations for foreign language films outside of just one category. Besides this, she has also started shooting for her third global film titled Isn't It Romantic .

"This tournament for me, even if I could just come and play, that alone would be an honour, but on top of that".

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.

"The experience was definitely worth it, because based on that good experience that I had last year, I think I was able to garner the championship this year", Park said through an interpreter.

That is when Park made her move, birdieing the 12th and 15th holes to join Choi atop the leader board. "I think a lot of them, if not all, have strong capability to play really well". "I mean, I did a good job hanging in right there because my putting was not really that great".

That was two ahead of compatriot Hye Jin Choi (71), who missed out on becoming the first amateur major champion for 50 years after finding water at the 16th. She rallied with a birdie on the par-5 18th to finish solo second. Yang curled in a long birdie putt at 17 to book her spot in the final pairing Sunday. This year's weekend was so much better, and made her so much happier.

Stabbing attack on tourists at Egyptian Red Sea resort
The attacker has been arrested and is now being interrogated to determine his motives, Egypt's Interior Ministry announced. The ministry said three gunmen opened fire on a police auto and then fled, killing two policemen and three conscripts.

Three other Koreans, world number one Ryu So-yeon (71), Lee Mi-rim (67) and Lee Jeong-eun (73), were another stroke back at five-under. "He's a great competitor, and I was kind of shocked he bogeyed 17", said DeChambeau, the 10th first-time victor on the tour this season.
