Hye Jin Choi 17-year-old amateur golfer falls just short of US Women's Open title

There was plenty of drama at Trump National at Bedminster on Sunday, and none of it had to do with the most powerful country club owner being on the grounds.

Bedminster: South Korean golfer Sung Hyun Park has won the US Women's Open by two strokes at Trump National for her first major championship.

Choi was trying to become only the second amateur to win the U.S. Women's Open, matching the feat by Catherine Lacoste of France in 1967.

The all-business Park plays with a poker-face intensity and crushes the ball with a flowing power swing that takes dead aim at her target. "So I think I had to have a good wrap up and so I think that's how I was able to finish OK". "That happened in my third and fourth rounds". Mi Jung Hur and So Yeon Ryu tied for third at 281 while Feng fell to fifth along with Carlota Ciganda and Jeongeun6 Lee at 282 when she made a triple bogey on the final hole. She added four birdies and two more bogeys in her final 15.

"I came a long way from Korea and I had the United States president and his wife cheering for me and clapping for me", Choi said through an interpreter. "My putting was really not great".

Park was competing in just her second Women's Open.

U.S. President Donald Trump congratulated South Korean Park Sung-hyun on winning the U.S. Women's Open on Sunday.

A birdie at 12 gave Park a share of the lead along with Choi and Feng.

The pairs exchanged breaks in the opening set before Murray and Hingis edged ahead. She's won everything, won so many mixed as well. "I had a great week".

Park went two clear with a birdie from six feet at the 17th and got up-and-down for par at the last. Playing in the group ahead of Choi and Feng, Park drained a 20-footer for birdie to move to 10-under.

She shot a 1-over-par 73 on Thursday, 2-under 70 on Friday, 5-under 67 on Saturday and 5-under 67 again on Sunday, good for 11 under across four rounds, to capture her first LPGA Tour win. She has followed with six more US LPGA titles, most recently winning in May at Ann Arbor, Michigan. It took a toll on Choi.

Park, the 36-hole leader, finished 74-74 there, losing a chance at the title when she hit into a water hazard on the 72nd hole and ended up third, two shots out of a playoff. "He's a great competitor, and I was kind of shocked he bogeyed 17", said DeChambeau, the 10th first-time victor on the tour this season. She did just that in taking the tournament by the throat. The 17-year-old had a two-shot lead with nine holes to play and needed a birdie at 15 to regain a piece with Park. She is also No. 16 in hitting greens in regulation and No. 14 in putts per GIR.

"Well, to be honest with you, I still can not believe that it is actually happening", said Park."It's nearly feel like I'm floating on a cloud in the sky". "I feel like I'm floating on a cloud". She was also trying to break Lydia Ko's record as the youngest LPGA major victor.
