Several peaceful demonstrations during the final round of the U.S. Women's Open were capped by a stance from three women and a man wearing violet-colored shirts that said "USGA: Dump Sexist Trump", looking directly into Trump's skybox just after he arrived late Sunday afternoon.

Dressed in her signature cow-patterned ensemble, Feng struggled with putting over the weekend, missing key birdie putts in both the third and fourth rounds in which she made a single birdie in each.

Hye-Jin Choi and Amy Yang were tied for second place after Saturday's action.

The group under par surprisingly includes American Cristie Kerr, who carded a 70 to move into a tie for eighth place at 212, a day after back spasms almost led her to withdraw.

Feng was asked whether she had thought about what she might say to President Trump if she had the opportunity to talk to him.

And despite a buzzer-beating jumper by Finney-Smith to close the half, the Mavericks limped into the intermission down 62-40. Hardly a fluke by anybody's standards, this kid has an outstanding and truly special ability passing the ball.

"And then I was like, "let's go to Plan B". try to hit the ball closer to the holes so I don't need to worry about making the putts. We'll just kind of see what happens and take it shot by shot". "Putting didn't really work today", said the Chinese world No. 6, victor of seven LPGA Tour events including the 2012 LPGA Championship. Everyone is chasing China's Feng Shanshan, who posted a one-under 71 for a 54-hole total of nine-under 207 in her bid for a wire-to-wire victory. "The president had Secret Service protection at that point, and that raised a question with me", Jay Sekulow, a member of the president's legal team, said on Sunday on the ABC news program "This Week".

But the unforgiving 16th hole proved to be her undoing. "I think a lot of them, if not all, have strong capability to play really well".

"Yes, quite a few Korean players on the top leaderboard", said Park, who said the course is similar to some in South Korea.

But Donald Trump Jr. was a no-show amid continuing controversy over his Trump Tower meeting a year ago with a Russian lawyer and a former Soviet counterintelligence officer.

Park, who finished third at the Open past year, had the best round of the day as she fired six birdies on the back nine to finish with a 30 and an overall 5-under 67.
