Evian Championship: Moriya Jutanugarn hopes to emulate sister

Evian Championship: Moriya Jutanugarn hopes to emulate sister

Should she hold onto her position and win the tournament on Sunday, Jutanugarn would join her sister Ariya as a major victor - a feat that would see them become the first sisters to achieve that accomplishment. "I rolled the ball very good, and just trying to keep going and like see a good shot and just relax on the golf course".

The decision to re-boot the fifth and final major of this year's Ladies Professional Golf Association European Tour - which carries total prize money of $3.65 million (£2.76 million/€3.07 million) - received criticism from some players and observers, with the United States Jessica Korda, who was leading at two-under when play was scrapped, saying it "sucked".

Ko talked about the advice she has had from several people but pointed out a comment from a playing partner last week, Stacy Lewis.

Queenslander Sarah Jane Smith also fought her way into the mix at one under with her own stellar second round of three-under-par 68.

"But now I think I'll play a few more years".

Should Jutanugarn take the trophy, she would become the 34th player in LPGA history to earn her first victory at a major.

Since joining the LPGA Tour in 2011, Jennifer Song has been looking for her career breakthrough.

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

She claimed her third victory on tour, and first in seven years, at the Thornberry Classic at Wisconsin in July, when she admitted she nearly gave the game in 2015 and 2016 following seasons of struggle. But I've surprised myself even, and certainly since then, it's just, yeah, been nice.

Two pairs of brothers have won major titles, though not for more than 50 years.

Kirk turned a long run of disappointment around this year with a win in Wisconsin her first since 2010 and talked about just what that win meant to her. I'm different now to what I was a year ago, and I think she really put it into great perspective for me.

On that occasion, she slipped back to finish tied 16th.

"That (win) was a huge confidence boost, especially after struggling for a couple years and questioning whether I'd be playing much longer", Kirk confessed after her second-round 69.

"I mean, golf is amusing; I wasn't expecting it for sure, but yeah, I kind of surprised myself even, and certainly since then, it's just, yeah, been nice".

"It's just nice to know you can still do it at 35 years old and as one of the older players out here".

Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn is two shots behind Park on 65, one shot ahead of Anna Nordqvist of Sweden and Katherine Kirk of Australia.

American Paula Creamer was forced to withdraw on Friday with a sprained tendon in her left wrist.

Nordin was true on a 29-yard field goal with 2:59 to go in the third for a 19-13 bulge, which stood through the end of the period. The head coach also wasn't looking to be to introspective about Michigan's offensive struggles, at least for public consumption.
