With Trump looking on, Feng leads US Women's Open

NZ golfer Lydia Ko makes spectacular comeback in second round at US women's Open

And Park has inserted herself into the conversation about the best players on the planet.

The Korean carded a five-under 67 in the final round at Trump National in New Jersey to win by two shots from amateur compatriot Hye Jin Choi.

Seventeen-year old Hye-Jin Choi of South Korea, who was trying to become the second amateur to win a Women's Open title, finished second after a 1-under 71 for a 9-under 279.

Park, who finished third at the Open previous year, had the best round of the day as she fired six birdies on the back nine to finish with a 30 and an overall 5-under 67. She led after 36 holes in this event a year ago and finished third, two shots out of a playoff. 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.

A potential visit from Trump, who frequents his Bedminster club as a summer getaway spot, was first indicated Monday and discussed until he arrived from Paris on Friday. Five protesters (four women, one man) staged a demonstration beneath his box that overlooked the 15th green and 16th tee.

It ended up being a quiet week of politics. The golf was excellent.

Lee's finish is the latest in a solid season for the three-time LPGA Tour victor, who has six top-10s in 2017, and remains confident her first major victory is near.

A birdie at 17 and a tricky up-and-down on 18 saw her post the winning clubhouse score as her nearest rivals faltered behind her.

"(Compared) to a lot of Korean female players, I guess I am more aggressive in my play", said 23-year-old Park.

"We reject the changes imposed by the Israeli government", Sheikh Omar Kiswani, Al-Aqsa director, told reporters outside. Another man who was with Halil at the time of the arrest was detained by security forces in connection with the attacks.

Third-round leader Patrick Rodgers shot a 70 to finish one shot back.

Bryson DeChambeau took that advice to heart.

Park won $900,000 United States for finishing first.

"But this year, I owe to that great experience that I had, I think I learned more and was able to have a better play this time". Catherine Lacoste took home the U.S. Open in 1967.

Wesley Bryan (64) and Rick Lamb (66) tied for third at 16 under.

Yang's start was even worse - after birdieing the first she bogeyed the second and ran up a six on the par-four third - but then produced four further unanswered birdies. He became the 10th first-time victor on the PGA Tour this season. She's the only woman to be the Rolex Player of the Year and Rolex Rookie of the Year in the same season and that was way back in 1978.

Another Korean, Sung Hyun Park, shot a five-under 67 to move into fourth on six under for the week, but England's Charley Hull dropped to 18th and is eight shots off the pace following a one-over 73. The 51-year-old McCarron made up a six-shot deficit in the final round to capture his first major on the PGA Tour Champions.

The story of the day, however, was the stunning collapse by Langer. Seeking his third major win of the year, the 59-year German had a one-shot lead before dropping his tee shot in the water on No. 17.

"I was hitting the ball perfectly, and at 16, I tried to hit even more perfectly, which made it a missed shot instead of a flawless shot", Choi said through an interpreter.
