Park goes on attack at US Women's Open

Spectators at golf tournament often direct gaze toward Trump

Sung Hyun Park has made South Korea great again at Trump National Golf Club after her country's one-year absence from the victory stand at the U.S. Women's Open.

Park birdied the 15th to move into a tie for the lead and the 17th to open a two-shot edge after Choi made a double bogey on the previous hole.

Park, Choi and Feng did battle throughout the final round, but it was Park who held her nerve over the closing holes.

"Well, it would be nice if I could get the money, but I think my primary goal was to come here and compete", Choi said.

"To be honest I still can not believe this is actually happening. It's nearly like I'm floating on a cloud in the sky", Park said through an interpreter after signing for 11-under 277. She becomes the eighth South Korean player to win a total of nine Women's Opens since 1988.

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

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

Choi recovered her composure to birdie 18 to finish two clear of world number one Ryu So-yeon and another South Korean, Hur Mi-jung, but two behind Park. The 27-year-old Alex grew up in Wayne, N.J., less than 40 miles from Trump National.

PGA - Bryson DeChambeau overcame a four-stroke deficit to win the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Ill., by a stroke for his first PGA Tour title - and a spot next week in the British Open. Choi birdied the final hole, but when all the pars and bogeys and whispers and shouts of "Donald Trump!" were added up, Park's four-round score was lower than everybody else's. Third-round leader Patrick Rodgers shot 70 to finish second. "I was trying so hard to make putts", Feng said.

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

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.

England's Charley Hull recorded a level-par round of 72 which left her tied in 47th place, a shot behind compatriot Jodi Ewart Shadoff.

DeChambeau made a 14-foot birdie putt on No. 18 to pull even with Rodgers. He finished with 73. "I am also following Cristie Kerr and Carlota Ciganda, whom I know well, and wish both of them good luck!" Rodgers then bogeyed No. 17. "That was the killer".

"Earlier on the 18 hole, my mind basically went blank", Park said.

Garnett, 33, who played on the big tour in 2015, posted a final round of 6-under 65 to win by a shot over Mexico's Abraham Anser, Arkansas' Austin Cook and third-round leader Rob Oppenheim, whose chip to force a playoff on the 18th hole lipped out.
