Lydia Ko plummets out of US Women's Open contention

Lydia Ko plummets out of US Women's Open contention

The preside partook in the US Women's Open Golf Championship at the Trump National Golf Course n Bedminister, New Jersey, on Sunday.

Spectators gathered across from the glass-enclosed structure hoping to catch sight and snap pictures of the president, who periodically co-operated by coming into view to wave or give a thumbs-up, while wearing a red "Make America Great Again" cap.

Golf legend John Daly defended Trump on Twitter and Lincicome was subsequently berated in a long list of unflattering tweets forcing her off her account this week.

Sung Hyun Park, the top rookie on the LPGA Tour, was 6 under after a 67.

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.

Saturday at the US Women's Open was all about defence. "Last time I had a top 10 in a major was my first year out here (in the 2014) British Open, but this is awesome".

Choi was the story for most of the final round.

Unfortunately for Alex, a six-hole stretch of five-over-par golf to start her Saturday round took her out of contention.

Feng, who was the leader after the first three rounds and carried a one-shot edge into the final 18 holes, triple bogeyed the final hole. "That birdie made my day".

Lydia Ko's chances of winning the US Women's Open have all but evaporated after she slipped to a tie for 23rd after the third round at Bedminster. That said, golfer Marina Alex told People that "whether you are a fan of Trump or you're not a fan of Trump, having a president at a women's golf event is pretty remarkable", adding that "it's going to draw attention to women's golf that has maybe never been in our favor before".

As Park stood in the 15th fairway, she was tied with Choi and Feng at 9-under par.

"You want to continuously play well, make very few mistakes", Langer said. But she made a birdie at the par 5 15th - in front of Trump - to get to 10-under par.

Shinkwin left short a 4-foot par putt for victory on his 72nd hole to shoot a 4-under 68 in his final round and drop into a playoff with Cabrera Bello, who shot a course-record 8-under 64. "At that moment, I was telling myself I should just stick to how I usually practice".
