Moriya Jutanugarn fires 68 to lead 2nd round at Evian major

Anna Nordqvist overcame a brutal playing environment, impending darkness, mono, Brittany Altomare, and a final-round five-shot deficit to win the weather-shortened Evian Championship on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff at the fifth and final major of the LPGA season.

The 35-year-old was scheduled to compete in the final round of the rain-affected Evian Championship at France on Sunday night, after a strong performance during the first two rounds.

Ko shot a second round 68 - matching her first round score - at the last major of the LPGA season overnight (NZ time) to leave her at six under par, with leader Moriya Jutanugarn of Thailand topping the leaderboard at nine under.

A birdie at 14 immediately offset her prior bogey, before Ko suddenly reversed her previous par five performance.

Starting with a one-shot lead, Jutanugarn reached the turn two ahead at 10 under but lost her lead when Nordqvist surged.

Thought it was Ariya who broke out first with five victories in 2016 including her first major title, this week Moriya chases her first career win she also has a chance to make history.

Jutanugarn's sister and former world number one Ariya, missed the cut for the second major in a row. Nordqvist eagled the par-5 15th to begin her path to victory.

With the win, Nordqvist, of Sweden, will take home $547,500.

In her final round as a professional before retiring, two-time Evian victor Ai Miyazato shot 73 to finish 1 over. She could well have joined the playoff if not for the double bogey at the par-four 10th. Her wins at Evian came before it was upgraded in 2013. The par-4 hole played long all afternoon and was near-treacherous for the playoff.

The 23-year-old added: "It was good for me playing in the last group in a major at Kingsbarns".

"I probably don't feel that bad playing on the golf course rather than watching my sister play", said Moriya Jutanugarn, who recalled feeling "nervous, excited" a year ago when finishing her round to watch Ariya win at Woburn, England.

"I just felt like I wanted to go out there today and focus on what I could do".
