McDonald moves up at final major

Sung Hyun Park fired an 8-under 63 in the first round of the Evian Championship on Friday to take a two-shot lead in the final major of the LPGA season.

"I want to win my first tournament", Jutanugarn said.

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.

The 23-year-old has been in contention on numerous occasions during the season but has fallen short of titles, something she will hope to change in France after a three-under 68 in round two. Ryu suffered a six-shot swing having been two-under and sharing the lead with Korda when play stopped. With just one top ten in 2017 however these are giddy heights and as to how she handles the situation tomorrow will be a source of fascination.

A first-round 78 left her with a major hill to climb to make the top 70, and a second round of 72, with a birdie at the 18th, left her with five shots too many to survive the 36-hole axe. "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".

She came into the week confident after turning her form around this year, capturing her first LPGA title since 2010 at the Thornberry Classic in Wisconsin in early July.

"I had been struggling for a couple of years and was wondering whether I should go on much longer".

Lurry's play came after Nebraska had opened the game by driving from its 25-yard line to the Nebraska 17. Northern Illinois sophomore quarterback Daniel Santacaterina was 15 of 22 for 128 yards.

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

Uehara is ranked only No. 163 yet her 14 birdies so far are two more than anyone else on the rain-softened Evian Resort course looking across Lake Geneva to Switzerland.

Moriya Jutanugarn of Thailand leads at nine-under after carding a three-under-par 68.

"I'm just enjoying the joy of playing the game right now". The seven-time LPGA victor said she doesn't think about that result much anymore. Not saying to anybody else but to me that, hey, you're playing good stuff, and you just have to be patient and be positive.

Ko talked about the advice she has had from several people but pointed out a comment from a playing partner last week, Stacy Lewis. "I had some struggles here and there".

"She said don't get caring about what happened previous year or what's the difference".

"I definitely think that I need to go low because there are a lot of great players out here and greens are soft, so it's very easy to attack the pins", said Song. She said like a few really nice things throughout these years I've been on Tour, and it's so cool.
