Park revives Evian Championship ambitions in controversial first round re-run
Sep 17 2017 by Desiree Burns
Overnight leader Park Sung-hyun tumbled down the order with a disappointing 73 - five bogeys hampering her progress as she joined Lydia Ko and Kim In-kyung three shots off the pace.
Lydia Ko is within touching distance of adding another major golf title to her resume.
Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn has taken a three-shot lead in the second round of the weather-shortened Evian Championship, the fifth and final major women's golf tournament of the season. The 33-year old LPGA veteran has only one other top 10 this season, a T6 finish in July at the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic.
"At these major events, the keys are the fairways and greens this week", said Moriya, who is still looking for her first LPGA victory.
"They were flawless conditions (so) I was happy I was able to capitalise".
It came the day after slumping to six over par after nine holes before heavy rain caused the tournament to be re-scheduled over 54 rounds starting from this morning.
Rees-Mogg a Joke or a new Leader?
Despite all the critics around him, Rees-Mogg is making big steps in the race using all the scandals around him as extra scores. Conservative thinking in its very hard right determination is making his person attractive for the UK conservative fans.
And chase she will have to do Sunday during the final round. "I missed some tee shots that went into the rough, but I made great up-and-downs, and I was so surprised that I had a bogey-free round because usually I make a lot of bogeys, which gets me upset, but I'm really happy about today".
Sophia Schubert, the US Women's Amateur champion, made her mark playing alongside the professionals with an impressive opening 68, two better than defending champion Chun In-Gee and seven ahead of world No.1 Ryu So Yeon.
The victor of the tournament in 2015 - when she became the youngest women's major champion - Ko has been a model of consistency through the first two rounds.
"It was good for me playing in the last group in a major at Kingsbarns".
"I didn't play well today, so I have a little gap from the top players", Park said.
She claimed her third victory on tour, and first in seven years, at the Thornberry Classic at Wisconsin in July, when she admitted she nearly gave the game in 2015 and 2016 following seasons of struggle. "I'm trying to put myself in a good position, and when it's my time, probably it will turn out good". "Hey, you know what, I can win out here, and just keep believing and keep doing the right things, and you never know what happens".
