Trump witnesses protests and worst American finish ever at the U.S. Women's Open.

Trump witnesses protests and worst American finish ever at the U.S. Women's Open.


............

As other protests occurred both inside and outside security checkpoints Sunday, the tournament went on as scheduled, and was won by 23-year-old South Korean Sung Hyun Park, who surged into the lead late in the final round with a scintillating 5-under par 67 to win by two strokes over 17-year-old South Korean amateur Hye-Jin Choi.

Parkís was a victory for herself, of course, but also a continuation of the domination South Korean golfers have shown in the womenís game since Se-Ri Pak became the first South Korean to win this tournament in 1998.

The floodgates immediately opened with young South Korean girls who got up in the middle of the night to watch Pak win, then asked their parents to get them golf clubs. Itís no secret what happened next. Over those 19 years South Koreans have won the U.S. Womenís Open nine times, including Parkís victory.

South Koreaís presence here was enormous. There were 29 golfers from the country in the field, second only to 55 Americans. The top four finishers Sunday, as well as nine of the top 14, are from South Korea.

By contrast, only one U.S. golfer appeared on the leaderboard at the end, 26-year-old LPGA player Marina Alex of Wayne, N.J.
