Starting afresh, the US Women's Open Champion made the most of the reprieve and shot an eight under par 63 to lead after the first round of the women's final major of the season.

Park made a nightmarish start to the women's final major of the year on Thursday when she was six over through five holes in wind and rain but the LPGA wiped away first-round scores after a weather suspension and shortened the championship to 54 holes.

The former world No.1 enjoyed the cool conditions which were a far cry from the driving wind and rain which forced organisers to abandon the first day and reduce the tournament to 54 holes.

DORSET'S Georgia Hall yesterday carded an opening 68 as she finally completed her first round at the fifth Major of the year - the Evian Championship.

"I'd be lying if I said I wasn't surprised but I just forgot about it and focused on my game", she said. Her...

Ideal timing: Lukaku joined Man Utd at the right time - Mourinho
United have been sensational in attack so far, but Paul Pogba's hamstring injury has complicated matters somewhat. When a team is competing in as many tournaments as United are, quality and depth are two essential matters.

Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn is two shots behind Park on 65, one shot ahead of Anna Nordqvist of Sweden and Katherine Kirk of Australia. When she moved to 7 under for the day with yet another birdie at her 11th hole all sorts of possibilities began to open up but a bogey at the 13th slowed the momentum.

Park was the beneficiary of some good fortune in having her initial score disallowed, and she took full advantage of the second chance afforded to her Friday. "I was annoyed until about 9:00 p.m. last night, and then I was like, all right, screw it; when I wake up, it's a new day".

Korda was joined on a four-under-par 67 by fellow American Alex Marina and South Korea's Kim Kyung-in. "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 Thai golfer, whose younger sister, Ariya, won the 2016 Women's British Open, has never won on Tour. She posted a 66 on Friday, her low round at this championship, and sits just three-back of Park. "Two trees were blown down when were were playing the ninth." he said. "Just trying to give myself a chance for birdie". The nine-time LPGA victor announced earlier this year that the Evian Championship would be her final tournament before retiring from the game. The seven-time victor fought through for a T-7 at the British Open, went 3-0-1 at the Solheim Cup but missed the cut last week at the Indy Women in Tech Championship.

The 24-year-old had started with four bogeys and a double bogey in a seemingly calamitous start.
