Protesters watch as US President Donald Trump arrives at the 72nd US Women's Open Golf Championship at Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster, New Jersey, July 16, 2017.

The president attended the tournament on Saturday, but while he was watching the best golfers on the LPGA compete on the course, just a few miles away protesters clashed over the event.

Teenager Hye-Jin Choi and perennial Open bridesmaid Amy Yang were tied for second in an event where the South Koreans have shined.

It should make for an interesting final day in a tournament that had an even bigger stage with Trump in attendance.

Golfer Shanshan Feng sought to quickly change subjects when asked a question in a recent interview about President Trump.

"I didn't feel any extra pressure", said Thompson, who with her family posed for pictures with the president. "At that moment, I was telling myself I should just stick to how I usually practice".

"And then I was like, "let's go to Plan B". try to hit the ball closer to the holes so I don't need to worry about making the putts". Choi pushed her tee shot right at the 139-yard par 3, dunking it into the water.

The win was redemption for Park, who is the leading rookie on the LPGA Tour this year.

Ko bogeyed holes six, nine and 10 and hit one birdie on hole 15.

Choi finished with a 71.

But on the 11th hole, the 32-year-old Lewis gave back most of the strokes gained on her birdie binge. "Like millions of women and men I am the victim of sexual violence", Singsen said.

But Donald Trump Jr. was a no-show amid continuing controversy over his Trump Tower meeting a year ago with a Russian lawyer and a former Soviet counterintelligence officer.

Park played the back nine in 6 under.

Feng snapped a run of 23 consecutive pars with a birdie at the 18th hole to reclaim the lead over a wave of South Korean challengers.

"I am excited and happy", said Park, the event's seventh South Korean victor in 10 years. "But I think my primary goal was to come here and compete so, to me, getting this second place in runner-up actually means more to me and it's a greater honor for me so I am not really focusing on the prize money for now".
