Aussies Smith and Oh struggle at US Open

  • US Women's Open: Ariya Jutanugarn leads by four shots after three rounds

She then posted seven straight pars, taking over the lead when Smith stumbled to back-to-back birdies on Nos. eight and nine holes. Ariya Jutanugarn almost had a starring role in what could've gone down as one of the most spectacular falls in major championship history. She had a 29-hole bogey-free streak end with a three-putt on No. 8 - she started on the 10th tee - a rare mistake for her at the midway point. Jutanugarn admitted after the round she didn't felt completely comfortable on the tee box. Lincicome said Friday at the U.S. Women's Open that she was asked to play in the Barbasol Championship in Kentucky July 19-22.

Another bogey followed at the 12th.

As Jutanugarn started to struggle, Kim was applying pressure. "For the most part she's really cruisey".

Kim says she wasn't thinking about the huge deficit she faced. Not really sure of where she stood on the leaderboard, she putted wonderfully all weekend (24 putts in a third-round 68 and 25 on Sunday).

Ariya had looked poised to stroll to the title, padding her lead at the turn after starting the day four in front, but Faxon said the warning signs were there.

"I hope to show up like it's another day", said Smith, whose husband, Duane, is her caddie. She hits it a long way, but her short game is impeccable. It worked, as she hit a superb approach to the par-three and sank the birdie.

Jutanugarn confessed the memory of the ANA loss was coming back to her after she blew that tee shot into the woods on Sunday.

Palmer also squandered a seven-shot lead over the final nine holes but while Ariya managed to right the ship and win in sudden death, the American great lost in a playoff to Billy Casper. We send videos and that, but there's something about in person that he seems to get a pretty good gist of what's going on even on the golf course.

She cited victory in her last two play-offs as cause for confidence.

Heading into the playoff having blown a enormous lead, Jutanugarn refocused and recommitted. Time and again on Sunday she made long putts, and she wasn't about to stop making them now. Her 5-over 77, on the heels of a first-round 76, has her at 9 over, now five strokes on the bad side of the projected cut line.

Hyo-Joo Kim hits out of the bunker to the 18th green during the second hole of a playoff in the final round of the U.S. Women's Open. He missed the green from the fairway on the 18th on the first extra hole and had to scramble for par. Queensland's Katherine Kirk is a further shot back at three over and is just inside the cut line with 11 holes left to play in her second round.

Back at the 14th Kim finally missed a birdie attempt that would have won the title.

The players went back to the 14th, which they both parred.

Disaster had been averted. She realized she wasn't ready to win at the time. To become No. 1 and stay there, she needed to know why she was doing this in the first place. She found it by helping kids, sponsoring schools in her native Thailand.

"I find the nerves of playing bad are a lot harder to deal with than the nerves of playing good". Likewise, occasionally, a player's career can be defined by the tournaments they do not win rather than those they do; just ask Jean van de Velde. She finished as the runner-up.
