COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Hee Kyung Seo of South Korea moved to the verge of winning the U.S. Women's Open on Sunday, finishing with a one-shot lead over So Yeon Ryu, who had three holes left when play was suspended by darkness. Play will resume on Monday morning.
On a grueling 36-hole day at the Broadmoor, Seo shot a pair of 3-under 68s to finish at 3-under 281 and close in on her first major championship.
Returning along with Ryu on Monday are Cristie Kerr, who is two shots back with two holes to play and Angela Stanford, who is three behind with four holes left.
Barring a playoff, Seo won't have to hit a shot Monday. If nobody catches her, she'll collect the trophy for her first major victory and only her second on the LPGA Tour.
Play resumes at 8:00 a.m. Monday and admission is free for all spectators. Free parking is available at the World Arena parking lot only. The first shuttle leaves the World Arena at 6:30 a.m.
