Ariya Jutanugarn overcomes collapse, wins US Women's Open playoff

Ariya Jutanugarn overcomes collapse, wins US Women's Open playoff

And former UA golfer Jenny Suh missed the 36-hole cut. Half the field didn't finish the round.

Monday, the 22-year-old arrived at Shoal Creek for the U.S. Women's Open conducted by the USGA, but her golf clubs didn't make the trip. "I was actually kind of happy with how I handled it a bit more today", said Smith, who is still seeking her first LPGA victory. "I played great, obviously".

"I felt pretty good, " Jutanugarn said about her mood before the shot. "Hopefully that keeps going".

Ariya set the early pace in the morning session, mastering the sodden conditions to end the day in a three-way tie atop the leaderboard with Australia's Sarah Jane Smith and South Korea's Lee Jeong-eun6.

Jutanugarn had an opening birdie to move to 6 under through eight holes. Even Smith, who shot a 74 to fall back to second place, was impressed by Jutanugarn's relentless surge. Korean-born SuSu-Hyun Oh lies alongside her in joint second after shooting a 68.

Lee had a marvelous final round on Sunday to force the extended play, but then shot two bogeys in the playoff situation. The third round begins with groups of three, starting on the first and 10th tees. Her caddie is her husband, Duane Smith, whom she married in 2009.

"She's a spectacular player, obviously", Smith said. She tied for fourth last week at the Volvik. She missed several good chances to pick up shots, which appeared to take the wind from her sails, before surrendering the lead with consecutive bogeys at the eighth and ninth holes.

"She's just the whole package".

Hamilton's Alena Sharp was tied for 60th at 4-over par through seven holes when play was suspended. She is still chasing Smith, along with everyone else. Play only continued for about an hour after the delay. "I don't worry about the outcome".

The trio were two shots in front of former US Open victor Michelle Wie, 18-year-old amateur Linn Grant of Sweden and American Danielle Kang. Grant shot 72 and Park 71.

On being 10-under through 27 holes: "It was like 'Oh, wow.' Just it was weird. Obviously it sucked to have the three-putt on eight (her 17th), but can't complain too much".

Ariya said she had some weaknesses in her game, but was stumped to name them.

The deficit reduced further when Kim drained a monster 60-foot putt for an unlikely birdie at the 12th, where Jutanugarn blotted her card again moments later.

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). He was six behind.

Henderson tweeted: "Unfortunately, I needed to withdraw from the US Women's Open for personal reasons and am headed home to be with my family".
