Paul Broadhurst leads PGA Tour Champions at Pebble Beach

In Gee Chun posted a 5-under 66 to take a two-shot lead Friday at the Evian Championship, keeping the 22-year-old South Korean on course for the second major title of her career.

World No.1 Lydia Ko is the defending champion for the first time in a major championship, having shot a final round 63 to win by six shots over Lexi Thompson past year.

Chun In Gee and Park Sung Hyun both shot eight-under-par 63 to make it a South Korean double at the top of the leaderboard after the first round of the Evian Championship.

Her countrywoman Sung Hyun Park (67) was at 15 under, and Feng Shanshan (69), China's only major victor, two shots further back.

In the season's fifth and final major, Park failed to match...

That's not to knock the talent leading the way in Evian-Les-Bains, France - in fact, several major champions litter the top 10. "I think there will be more people that will actually start to join the sport".

While Ko's play was patchy, with a bogey and only two birdies, her rival Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand had a day to forget with a 2-over 73 featuring a triple bogey.

South Korea's Chun In-gee took firm control of the Evian Championship and set her sights on the record books after a third-round six-under-par 65 on Saturday (Sep 17).

Tom Watson, the runner-up past year who won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am twice and his only U.S. Open at Pebble Beach in 1982, had a 75 at Poppy Hills.

Park, meanwhile, has followed up her good form from the US Open, where she led at the halfway stage and finished tied for third.

"I tried to hit driver on Monday", she said, "but I'm not really (feeling) comfortable because this course is really narrow and it's not that long to me to hit driver, so no driver this week".

ELVERSON, Pa. (AP) - Stewart Hagestad rallied to win U.S. Mid-Amateur title, overcoming a late four-hole deficit and beating Scott Harvey with a 15-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole.

Ko's a whopping 19 shots off leader In Gee Chun of Korea.

Nineteen under par is the low 72-hole score for a women's major and Chun also has a great chance of bettering the 20-under-par major record set by Jason Day at last year's PGA Championship and then matched by Henrik Stenson at this summer's Open Championship. "But I still feel like I have a little energy". The 59-year-old German star leads the tour with four victories this season.
