Kirk in contention at major championship in France

Park leads Evian after 8-under 63

"I probably don't feel that bad playing on the golf course rather than watching my sister play", said Moriya Jutanugarn, who recalled feeling "nervous, excited" a year ago when finishing her round to watch Ariya win at Woburn, England.

"When Ariya won the British Open at Woburn previous year, I finished not long before her and dashed out to watch her play the last few holes", she recalled.

Last month, Jutanugarn was in second place and in the final Sunday pairing at the Ricoh Women's British Open at Kingsbarns.

The decision to re-boot the fifth and final major of this year's Ladies Professional Golf Association European Tour - which carries total prize money of $3.65 million (£2.76 million/€3.07 million) - received criticism from some players and observers, with the United States Jessica Korda, who was leading at two-under when play was scrapped, saying it "sucked". "It's just like I'm trying to put myself in a good position, and when it's my time, probably it will turn out good". It won't be the same, but I mean, I just want to keep doing what I want to do, just you know, like try to play my game and focus on what I can do and what I can - you know, what is under my control. "I just need to just accept it".

The Thai golfer has never won on the LPGA Tour.

"It was good for me playing in the last group in a major at Kingsbarns". Annika won 72 times, and Charlotta won once - at the 2000 Standard Register Ping in Arizona.

How about Trump-Schumer-Pelosi tax reform?
The Tax Policy Center , a joint effort of the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution, estimates that the tax cuts Mr. Trump insists that slashing the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to as low as 15 percent would free up valuable cash.

Park said: "I didn't play well today, so I have a little gap from the top players".

She claimed her third victory on tour, and first in seven years, at the Thornberry Classic at Wisconsin in July, when she admitted she nearly gave the game in 2015 and 2016 following seasons of struggle.

Uehara is ranked only No. 163 yet her 14 birdies so far are two more than anyone else on the rain-softened Evian Resort course looking across Lake Geneva to Switzerland. "But personally, I feel more comfortable to actually chase those top players from the back".

"That was a huge confidence boost, especially after struggling for a couple years and questioning whether I'd be playing much longer", said Kirk.

In Thursday's foul conditions, Park made a quintuple bogey nine at the 11th [her second hole] and a six at the par three 14th.

Park is three shots behind the lead, tied for fourth with Lydia Ko and In-Kyung Kim, but the deficit doesn't concern her.
