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

Jutanugarn lost a seven-shot lead on the back nine before prevailing on the fourth hole of a playoff to win at Shoal Creek on Sunday for her second major championship.

Kim, world No. 67, was six strokes back of the fifth-ranked Jutanugarn, the overnight leader, to start the final round, and fell back by as many as seven strokes during the final day.

Duane was speaking after his 33-year-old wife carded a second straight 67 to leave the field in her dust in the second round at Shoal Creek. She was able to rest a few hours before getting back on the course and birdied two of the first three holes to immediately put pressure on Smith, who has never won on the LPGA Tour. Kim blasted out to 12 feet and failed to save par - her only bogey Sunday - and Jutanugarn chipped about 5 feet by the hole and made par to send the playoff to sudden death.

For Jutanugarn, the bogey at the par-5 17th was uglier than the mess she made on the 10th.

American Danielle Kang (69) was four shots back of Ciganda, the only player to finish fourth.

"Yeah. So my went back to my old clubs I have been using for a couple of years, I guess", said Smith.

And then after a stunning mistake at the 10th tee, she looked as if she were going to join Arnold Palmer in the annals of historic collapses.

"It's really tough for me because, you know, I didn't have good finish the last two holes".

"I think I'm going to sleep pretty well", Jutanugarn said.

Seventy-eight players were unable to complete the second round, which was to resume early Saturday morning. I feel comfortable on the greens, which has been something that has been a little bit off lately.

Defending champion Park Sung-hyun missed the halfway cut with rounds of 76-77, and world number two Feng Shanshan of China also exited early after rounds of 78-74.

Jutanugarn woke up at 4:00am for the 6:45am restart of the second round, which was pushed back an hour because of nearly an inch of rain on Friday night.

Ariya used her prodigious power to muscle her favorite three-wood tee shots past Smith's drives with regularity, and displayed a deft short game in a round that included only one blemish, a bogey at the par-three 16th.

"I'm really exhausted. I just want to go out and be proud of myself every day". "He's like, 'Come on, do you want to win?' I'm like, 'Yes.' He said, 'Okay". He was briefly tied for the lead Saturday until three-putt bogeys on the 16th and 18th holes, and he had to settle for a 68.
