Lydia Ko finishes tied for 33rd at US Open

Lydia Ko finishes tied for 33rd at US Open

The paltry $5 million purse for the women's U.S. Open-$900,000 of which goes to winner-is mere "table scraps" compared to the $12 million purse the guys played for last month at the Men's U.S. Open at Erin Hills. Everyone is chasing China's Feng Shanshan, who posted a one-under 71 for a 54-hole total of nine-under 207 in her bid for a wire-to-wire victory.

Feng snapped a run of 23 consecutive pars with a birdie at the 18th hole to reclaim the lead over a wave of South Korean challengers.

Choi, the 17-year-old who is the world's No.2 ranked amateur, might have been the most consistent player after bogeying her first hole.

Rookie Sung Hyun Park Captures First Win at US Women's Open
She gained the solo advantage after Choi pushed her tee shot into the water on the par-3 16 hole and made double bogey. But there was no stopping her this year as she showed remarkable poise to fire six birdies in her final round.

"I still can't believe that it's happening", Park, a South Korean and LPGA rookie, said through an interpreter. "The president had Secret Service protection at that point, and that raised a question with me", Jay Sekulow, a member of the president's legal team, said on Sunday on the ABC news program "This Week".

"Crazy wacked out libs", one woman said as she walked past the area. She made double bogey to fall out of contention.

"Thank you to all of the supporters, who far out-numbered the protesters, yesterday at the Women's U.S. Open".

ESPN will televise OJ Simpson's parole hearing live on Thursday
He is now in prison serving a maximum 33-year sentence after being convicted of kidnapping and armed robbery charges back in 2008. Simpson was convicted of trying to take pieces of sports memorabilia he claimed were stolen from him.

Because she is an amateur, Choi forfeits the $540,000 she would have won if she was a professional. And 16 and 17 I hit great shots into the green but I guess they weren't close enough so I still missed them. She added four birdies and two more bogeys in her final 15.

Feng was frustrated by her putting until the par-five last hole.

Park needed a fine chip from over the green on the par-5 18th hole to save par, and she got a thumps-up from Trump as she walked to sign her scorecard.

EI du Pont de Nemours and Company

First Lady Melania Trump and her dad joined them late in the afternoon, followed by daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner - just back from the annual summit of media, tech and finance moguls in Sun Valley, Idaho - and their kids. "We just want to be able to show our support for (the players) and our objections to Donald Trump - the fact that the LPGA still had to have it here in light of all the comments and actions that he's taken that are contrary to women's rights". One she'll never forget.
