Jutanugarn wins U.S. Women's Open in a playoff

Sarah Jane Smith of Australia looks over the 16th green during the second round of the 2018 U.S. Women's Open at Shoal Creek

Former world No.1 Jutanugarn shot a 5-under 67 on Saturday at Shoal Creek, with Smith failing to make a birdie and carding a 74 in the third round.

Smith had the advantage of finishing her second round on Friday before thunderstorms swept through central Alabama, but couldn't capitalize.

The victory was Jutanugarn's second in three weeks and her second major championship.

Jutanugarn is only 22, and she won't mind discussing the past couple of hours of this Women's Open like Palmer on his '66 debacle.

It started when her tee shot at the 10th found the water, leading to a triple bogey. "I'm happy with the way I'm playing". Keep showing up, it's going to turn around.

Fellow Korean and defending champion Sung Hyun Park, on the other hand, won't be around for the weekend.

Seven shots in front, nine holes left. The third round begins with groups of three, starting on the first and 10th tees. Do you think you are good enough to win this tournament?' She just kind of stared at me. Compliments to Olesen. He played great today and yesterday and he deserved this victory. Like everyone else, she was shocked she was still in contention.

"We were looking at the leaderboard saying Sarah is very greedy, just taking all the birdies", Oh said. A day of sunshine certainly helped conditions, but more rain is possible on Sunday.

"It's weird because it's playing longer because it's so soft but so hot so the irons are going really far", Oh said. "It could be her week really easy".

Sweden's Pernilla Lindberg, who beat Park in a play-off to win the first women's major of the year, the ANA Inspiration in April, finished a distant 15 over.

Round two was finished early on day three, with the cut-line unchanged and Ko sneaking into the back half of the major tournament.

Thai Wichanee Meechai, a 25-year-old in her second LPGA season, was part of the celebration as well. "So I tee off on 11, I told my caddie, 'I don't know how to hit this one, '" Jutanugarn said. "I'm not too anxious".

She couldn't quite complete the comeback, which would have been the biggest in the final round in U.S. Women's Open history. He missed a 3-foot birdie putt on the ninth hole, and then missed a birdie putt from 4 feet on the par-5 15th. Kim In-kyung trails them at No. 7.

Niemann is a 19-year-old from Chile in just his fifth pro start, and he already had a pair of top 10s on the PGA Tour.

With the course soft and vulnerable to low scores, it was tough to leave shots on the course.

They were two shots ahead of Byeong Hun An (67).

"I forgot the bad things", she said.
