Re­prieve pays off

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - SPORT -

PARK Sung Hyun led the Evian Cham­pi­onship yes­ter­day, just 24 hours af­ter the pre­vi­ous day’s play was wiped out by heavy rain and fierce winds with the South Korean star stranded at six over af­ter six holes.

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.

With seven birdies and an ea­gle, Park led by two shots from Thai­land’s Moriya Ju­tanu­garn with Aus­tralian Kather­ine Kirk and Swe­den’s Anna Nordqvist on 66.
