Sung Hyun Park wins US Women's Open by two shots

Seon Woo Bae, a victor in South Korea past year, was alone in fifth place at 5 under after a 69.

The final round started with Feng and 17-year-old South Korean amateur Hye-Jin Choi jostling for the lead. Park finished at 11-under 277 for a two-stroke win over Choi. "That's what happened. At the time I felt that all this work, all this hard work I put together was going to disappear, so I was a bit disappointed".

It doesn't exactly roll of an English tongue, but 2017 U.S. Women's Open champion Sung Hyun Park has one of the best nicknames in sports. Trump watched in a special glass-enclosed viewing area near the 15th green for the second consecutive day, welcomed by most spectators despite outrage sparked by his controversial remarks about women during his presidential campaign.

Ahead, Park was continuing her remarkable round under the most intense pressure and scrutiny, none other than course owner and US President Donald Trump watching on from his high-security marquee.

At one point, protesters said, Trump looked at them and gave them a thumbs-up.

Park smiled and waved, then went to sign her scorecard and, with 72 holes behind her, finalize the win.

Choi closed with 71 to finish as low amateur for the second straight year.

Another three South Koreans, world number one Ryu So-yeon (71), Lee Mi-rim (67) and Lee Jeong-eun (73), were another stroke back at five-under.

Jeongeun6 Lee, who has had a win and 10 top-10 finishes on the KLPGA Tour, shared second after posting a second straight 69.

PGA: Bryson DeChambeau overcame a four-stroke deficit to win the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois, for his first PGA Tour title and a spot next week in the British Open.

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

She made three birdies before her only bogey of the final round - at the par-four ninth - before three more birdies on the back nine.

"I thought she was just a great playing partner and great player", Feng said.

Champions - Scott McCarron's bogey-free 6-under 66 helped him use an uncharacteristic crash by three-time defending champion Bernhard Langer to win the Constellation Senior Players Championship in Owings Mills, Md. The 27-year-old Chinese player shot a 2-under 70 and had a 36-hole total of 8-under 136 on the 6,732-yard course that played even longer because of rain over the past two days.

DeChambeau made a clutch 14-foot birdie on the last, while Rodgers bogeyed the 17th and failed to birdie the 18th to force a playoff.

"When I was approaching the fourth shot, my mind went completely blank", Park said later, "but I remembered to stick with how I usually play, because it was part of my practice. That was the killer". However, Langer hit it in the water and missed a 4-footer. Both were 13 under overall.
