Aggressive Park claims US Women's Open title

NZ golfer Lydia Ko makes spectacular comeback in second round at US women's Open Experience worth more than money, says US Open runner-up Choi

But her chip shot rolled just past the hole - leaving her smiling casually at a loudly cheering crowd - and the ensuing par putt sealed a U.S. Women's Open championship for the 23-year-old from South Korea. And Park, whose golf swing is as pretty as it is powerful, had a weekend at Trump National Bedminster that a winning-most-of-time Woods would claim in a second, rounds of 67-67 that allowed her make up a seven-stroke deficit after 36 holes. But in the final round she birdied the second, fifth, eighth, 12th, 15th and 17th holes to be two shots in front of Feng by the 18th. She held the 36-hole lead a year ago at CordeValle before finishing tied for third, one shot out of the playoff between Anna Nordqvist of Sweden and American Brittany Lang, the eventual champion.

In the rapidly changing world of women's golf we got a glimpse of the future on a steamy Sunday in New Jersey.

World number one Ryu So-yeon of South Korea (70) and compatriot Hur Mi-jung (68) shared third on seven-under.

Park was in contention at last year's Open, but she finished with a pair of 74s in the final two rounds. "It's easy in practice, it's a little bit more hard in competition and it's the toughest you could actually have when it actually means something". Not bad for someone who made her first LPGA victory the U.S. Women's Open.

Then, trouble struck. Choi tried to be too flawless with her tee shot on the 139-yard hole and deposited it right into the lake. "Last year, I just made the cut so actually this year is such an improvement". "Like some or a lot of Korean female golfers, I guess I am more aggressive in my play".

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

"To be honest with you, I still can not believe that it is actually happening", Park said through a translator after accepting the trophy.

There had been calls for moving the tournament, which was awarded to Trump National in 2012 long before he officially entered politics, by women's groups angered by his campaign rhetoric and behavior they found to be misogynistic.

"I look back, I should be happy actually about my result", she said, "because coming into this week I had no expectations at all".

"He's a great competitor, and I was kind of shocked he bogeyed 17", DeChambeau said about Rodgers.

Choi was the story for most of the final round.

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.

". 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 is a clear leader for Rookie of the Year honors, and Sirak notes she could become the first woman since 1978 to win Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year. "But at that moment I was telling myself I should just stick to how I usually practice".
