Sung Hyun Park shot a cool, calm and collected 5-under 67 during the final round of the U.S. Women’s Open under the watchful eye of President Donald Trump to earn her first career LPGA Tour, and major, victory. It was also the first time a sitting president of the United States attended the event.

The South Korean Park battled back on Sunday at Trump National Bedminster after starting the day three shots off the lead. She successfully fended off 17-year-old amateur Hye-Jin Choi, who handled herself beautifully under the U.S. Open pressure and was vying to become the youngest ever LPGA major champion. However, her hopes were washed away when she found the water off the tee on the par-3 16th.
Park then went on to convert a brilliant up and down from behind the 18th green to seal the victory, avenging her third-place effort last year where she held the 36-hole lead. Here’s a look at Sunday’s highlights and final results of the 2017 U.S. Women’s Open:
