Jutanugarn, who was the LPGA Tour rookie of the year in 2013, has really come of age in 2017 with eight top tens and of she was to go on and win tomorrow then she will have well and truly emerged from the shadow of her brilliant sister.

The 2009 LPGA Championship victor, who battled glandular fever (mononucleosis) this summer, outlasted third-year-pro Altomare under borderline-unplayable conditions similar to those on Thursday that forced the LPGA to reduce the tourney to 54 holes.

Still, Kirk's second best major championship finish, tied third with Lydia Ko and Moriya Jutanugarn, should be a memory of fond emotions as her rounds of 66-69-70 were full of fight and magic moments.

Ko shot a second round 68 - matching her first round score - at the last major of the LPGA season overnight (NZ time) to leave her at six under par, with leader Moriya Jutanugarn of Thailand topping the leaderboard at nine under.

Hull birdied four of the first seven holes to get back to level par for the tournament, but she could not make any further progress and bogeyed 10 and 17 to end the day 11 shots behind the leader.

South Korea had produced champions at three of the first four majors, with Ryu So-yeon winning the ANA Inspiration in April and followed by Park Sung-hyun at the U.S. Women's Open in July and Kim In-kyung at the Ricoh Women's British Open in August.

South Korean contenders' charge fell short at the LPGA Tour's final major championship of the season here on Sunday.

The former world number one will be a good chance to continue that strong form when she tees up at the New Zealand Women's Open, starting on September 28 at Auckland's Windross Farm Golf Course. A stunning chip-in on the 15th, flopping a shot from the rough and running it into the cup, launched her back into the picture.

She steeled herself during the second round.

Inevitably a question about the comparisons between her and Ariya came up during her post round press conference.

Earlier, Melbourne's So Oh recorded her second-best major championship finish with a closing 72 enough for her to finish T14 at two under.

Park said: "I didn't play well today, so I have a little gap from the top players".

"That was a huge confidence boost, especially after struggling for a couple years and questioning whether I'd be playing much longer", said Kirk.

"I chipped in for birdie at the first hole, so that was a good start", she said. "I just keep trying".
