Here's why the US Women's Open champ applauded her opponent

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

She had a 29-hole bogey-free streak end with a three-putt on No. 8 - she started on the 10th tee - a rare mistake for her at the midway point. She felt uncomfortable in the limelight.

"I just felt really easy", said Smith, who is seeking a first win since joining the tour in 2006. Lincicome said Friday at the U.S. Women's Open that she was asked to play in the Barbasol Championship in Kentucky July 19-22. "I am really excited".

Another bogey followed at the 12th.

Now she'll just try to stay on an even keel throughout the weekend.

Kim had been on the verge of becoming the eighth Korean victor of the event in the past 11 years.

Sitting at 3 under after a 68, Spain's Carlotta Ciganda said she was surprised to see any one at double-digits under par like Smith. "He's like, 'Come on, do you want to win?' I'm like, 'Yes.' He said, 'Okay". Only after the putt on 15 did she realize she had a chance to come back.

"I knew from the start it was going to be tight, " said Olesen, who entered the final round tied with Molinari one stroke behind Lee Slattery.

This time she did not suffer the meltdown that got the better out of her at the 2013 LPGA Thailand and 2016 ANA Inspiration, two big events she allowed to slip from her grasp. It (the tee shot) went over the green, almost hit a cow in this farm over the back.

No president has ever pardoned himself, so its legality is a matter of legal debate. He adds: "I have no idea how they got it wrong, but they got it wrong".

She carried the meltdown through with back-to-back bogeys on the 17th and 18th. Finding the bunker on her approach to 18, she failed to get up-and-down for par and the collapse was complete.

Jutanugarn and Kim shot 11-under 277 in regulation.

The outcome no one wanted to imagine after Jutanugarn built a seven-stroke lead after the front nine looked as if it was in deep plot development, inoculated from the best pre-shot routine any mental coach has ever prescribed. "I didn't feel too bad, but I think when you are not getting the ball to the hole it probably proves that you are not letting it go". I said, is there a book or something I can read?

Kim wasted no time taking the lead in the playoff.

After misplacing his form on that infamous occasion then losing an 18-hole playoff to Billy Casper the following day, Palmer didn't like talking about what happened.

Ariya kicked it into high gear on the back nine by draining four birdies in five holes beginning at the par-five 11th hole.

Jutanugarn bogeyed the final two holes, sending the championship to a playoff. He missed the green from the fairway on the 18th on the first extra hole and had to scramble for par. Jutanugarn chipped from under the green and converted her par attempt to draw level.

Of the other Australians in the field Minjee Lee is at 2 over through just six holes of her second round after two bogeys on day two.
