Park leads Evian after 8-under 63

Jessica Korda of the United States who was leading by two shots in the original first round at the Evian Championship that was scrapped because of heavy rain said the decision by the LPGA

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.

Anna Nordqvist overcame a brutal playing environment, impending darkness, mono, Brittany Altomare, and a final-round five-shot deficit to win the weather-shortened Evian Championship on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff at the fifth and final major of the LPGA season.

Anna Nordqvist emerged as victor from a playoff against Brittany Altomare to win the 2017 Evian Championship on Sunday.

In driving rain, Nordqvist and Altomare returned to a soaked hole 18 for the playoff, which the Swede closed out with a bogey.

Inevitably a question about the comparisons between her and Ariya came up during her post round press conference. The condition sidelined her throughout the summer, resulting in her coming up one event short of the required number events needed to qualify for the European Solheim Cup team. "I love competing and I love practicing, and staying in bed hasn't been the most exciting", Nordqvist said. "My grandpa was always my biggest role model". "I was able to forget yesterday [Thursday] and just focus on today".

A birdie at 14 immediately offset her prior bogey, before Ko suddenly reversed her previous par five performance.

"The distance was 25 meters, so I was deciding whether I'm going to do chipping or putting, and I think after I made the shot, I was surprised, as well", Park said after her round.

"Winning didn't really cross my mind until I was having a great couple birdies and eagles there down the stretch", Nordqvist said.

Two holes behind, Jutanugarn was struggling at the 13 hole.

Beckham practices on limited basis, closer to playing
You're going to get coached up and there's things we can clean up, for sure, but you can't get defensive, can't get sensitive. Eli Manning was missing his best option in his 200th consecutive start for the New York Giants .

She's in position to do that well, or better today.

Defending champion In Gee Chun of South Korea was seven shots back after mixing four birdies with three bogeys for a 70.

The 23-year-old blotted her card again at the second, but she responded with further birdies and the third and sixth although she was unable to take advantage of the remaining two par-fives as she set the early clubhouse target at nine under par.

"When I see all my friends behind the 18th green it nearly makes me cry, so I tried not to watch them", said the 32-year-old Miyazato.

"But personally, I feel more comfortable to actually chase those top players from the back".

With the win, Nordqvist, of Sweden, will take home $547,500.

Wading among a group of veterans, it was Altomare who would go head-to-head with Nordqvist.

"But I reckon if I keep knocking on the door, one day it will be my turn", she said.

"I'm just enjoying the joy of playing the game right now. Putted well and I am delighted with the score".
