Australian Smith stages another 67 at US Women's Open

Ariya Jutanugarn suffered a back nine collapse before beating South Korean Kim Hyo-joo in a playoff at the U.S. Women's Open on Sunday.

But after a long wait on the tee at the par-three 16th which she spent calmly sitting against her golf bag, Jutanugarn hit a majestic shot to three feet for another birdie.

This weekend at the Shoal Creek Golf and Country Club, Jutanugarn did no such thing.

The pair then needed four extra holes to be separated, with a par on the 18th hole enough for Jutanugarn to win the championship. Then Olesen hit his second shot into a green-side bunker after driving into the rough. Kim birdied the 14th to take the upper hand, while Jutanugarn made par.

Carlota Ciganda is solo third at seven under. Danielle Kang finished in fourth at 3 under after also posting a 69.

Su Oh is another Australian who lost ground, with the 22-year-old dropping to a tie for 14th after a 6-over 78 on Saturday.

PGA - Bryson DeChambeau finally got it right on his third try at the 18th hole and won the Memorial in Dublin, Ohio, in a playoff. Kim found a greenside bunker and missed a par putt.

After misplacing his form on that infamous occasion then losing an 18-hole playoff to Billy Casper the following day, Palmer didn't like talking about what happened.

Mr Duplantis said that as he struggled to understand, the Lord said: "I want you to believe me for a Falcon 7X". He says that if Jesus were alive today, "He wouldn't be riding a donkey". "Think about that for a minute".

Walking off the course with his first 54-hole lead, DeChambeau couldn't but help but think of the two that got away. Starting five shots behind, Woods pulled within three shots with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 fifth hole.

Woods wasn't alone in missing short putts. He closed with a 72 and ended one of his best ball-striking weeks in a six-way tie for 23rd.

It was the second of two weather disruptions throughout day two the field to return at 6.45am on Saturday local time to complete their rounds.

Anyone who watched surely enjoyed the affair, and they may also have been clued into a specific visual: Jutanugarn applauding successful shots made by Kim during their one-on-one playoff.

The second round was suspended at 2:27 p.m. local time due to unsafe weather in the area. Last year, though, having reached top spot in the world rankings she duly missed four successive major cuts.

Olesen held his nerve, however, and got up and down. I was sort of holing a lot of putts. The USGA statement says she left to be with her family in Ottawa, but didn't elaborate. "That, I am extremely happy about", Kim said. "I can't complain. I was aggressive until the end".

They were two shots ahead of Byeong Hun An (67). Thursday it was her second nine, Friday her first nine.

DeChambeau wasn't even sure where he was when he finished because so many players worked their way up and down the leader board over the final two hours.
