SH Park takes advantage of ultimate Evian mulligan

Phil Mickelson watches his tee shot on the 12th hole during the pro-am of the BMW Championship golf tournament at Conway Farms Golf Club Wednesday Sept. 13 2017 in Lake Forest Ill

Leading 2017 LPGA money victor Sung Hyun Park shot an eight-under 63 in the first round of the Evian Championship on Friday at Evian Resort Golf Club in Evian-les-Bains, France, to take the solo lead in the final major of the LPGA season.

Park hit eight of 13 fairways and all but one green in regulation. She was 6 over through five holes in wind and rain Thursday when play was scrubbed.

Korda is four under in a share of fifth, while South Korean Ryu is well off the pace set by her compatriot at one under.

Park, the U.S. Women's Open champion, regrouped and had seven birdies and an eagle.

World number one Ryu So-yeon, who had made a promising start on Thursday, endured only frustration. Jessica Korda of the United States and Women's British Open victor In-Kyung Kim were a further shot back on 4 under.Park played in a stellar group with top-ranked So Yeon Ryu (75), her fellow South Korean, and No. 2 Lexi Thompson (70) of the U.S.Ryu suffered a six-shot swing having been 2 under and sharing the lead with Korda on Thursday when play stopped. She shot 75 on Friday.

Swede Anna Nordqvist and Australia's Katherine Kirk were three shots back of Park while Women's British Open champion Kim In-kyung, Jessica Korda and Marina Alex were a further shot back.

"I forgot about yesterday", Park said.

"Yes, I was surprised with the ruling", Park admitted.

"But I just wanted to focus on my game today and go on".

LPGA Tour Commissioner Michael Whan said what the little play was achieved Thursday morning at the Evian Championship is wiped from the record. "Yesterday the last couple holes we felt like we were playing in a hurricane", said Korda.

"I was annoyed until about 9 p.m. last night, and then I was like, 'All right, screw it, when I wake up, it's a new day". "I just need to concentrate on myself". "You know it's going to happen", Korda said.

Korda was also eight shots ahead of Park on Thursday.
