      Park Sung-hyun won her first major title in dramatic fashion by claiming the U.S. Women's Open at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Sunday.

      Park hit six birdies and one bogey in the fourth and final round to card an 11-under 277.

      Park was in fourth place after three rounds, sitting three strokes behind Shanshan Feng of China. But in the final round she birdied the second, fifth, eighth, 12th, 15th and 17th holes to be two shots in front of Feng by the 18th. The Chinese player's triple bogey on the last hole sent her tumbling from second to fifth place.

      Korean teen amateur Choi Hye-jin finished second with a 9-under 279. Ryu So-yeon and Hur Mi-jung shared third place, finishing 7-under on 281.

      U.S. President Donald Trump, who owns the course, watched the final two rounds.
