Smith leads after storm affects second round at US Women's Open

US Women's Open: Ariya Jutanugarn leads by four shots after three rounds

"I have to give myself more opportunities at birdie because I feel quite good about the putter", Park said.

"Actually, I wasn't keeping up with the score at the time so I didn't really know about it".

Jutanugarn captured her ninth career LPGA win, her second of the year after the Kingsmill Championship. Jutanugarn didn't panic when her trusty 2-iron went rogue.

Sarah Jane Smith opened up a four-stroke lead at the U.S. Women's Open as the second round was suspended Friday. She still had a two-shot lead with two holes remaining, but closed with back-to-back bogeys to fall into a playoff after shooting 73. Jutanugarn went out in 32 and came in with a shocking 41, sending her into her second playoff in three weeks.

Jutanugarn now has two majors, having won the Women's British Open two years ago.

A lightning storm forced play to be halted for nearly four hours and play was only able to resume for an hour before being delayed again. But Jutanugarn managed to steady the ship to force the contest to sudden death as Kim failed to get up and down from a greenside bunker on the second hole (No.18).

In the first use of the new two-hole aggregate playoff for USGA Open championships, it was Kim who gained the advantage after rolling in another monster putt for birdie on the first hole (No. 14) - while Jutanugarn made par.

Sessions didn't really have a choice in announcing his recusal. "Don't think that he has any reluctance to be interviewed ". The former Alabama senator was one of Trump's earliest and most ardent supporters .

However, a bogey at 18 - and par from Jutanugarn - extended the play-off, with both players following up with pars at 14.

The Thai former number one was the only player to get anywhere near runaway leader Smith, who shot a five-under 67 on Friday to establish a commanding lead.

Asked whether the win would boost her fame back home, Ariya said: "I think I might get a little bit bigger", before pausing, and adding, "I hope".

Smith carded a second straight five-under 67 to move into 10 under at the Shoal Creek Golf and Country Club in Alabama. She led by seven shots coming into Sunday's championship round.

But the first signs of trouble emerged on the 10th tee, when she carved her drive way right into the unknown and went on to run up a triple-bogey seven which opened the door for Kim.

Jutanugarn had gone into her final round at 12-under 204 with her South Korean rival sitting in third place, six shots adrift.

Round two was finished early on day three, with the cut-line unchanged and Ko sneaking into the back half of the major tournament. She was in the final group with Jutanugarn, but had a 78 on Sunday and tied for fifth. He was briefly tied for the lead Saturday until three-putt bogeys on the 16th and 18th holes, and he had to settle for a 68. He missed the green from the fairway on the 18th on the first extra hole and had to scramble for par.
