South Korea's Park Sung-Hyun won her first major golf title on Sunday, firing her second consecutive five-under par 67 to capture the US Women's Open as US President Donald Trump watched.

Park, the event's seventh South Korean winner in 10 years, finished 72 holes at Trump National on 11-under 277 to defeat 17-year-old South Korean amateur Choi Hye-Jin by two strokes.

Deadlocked for the lead with Choi, Park sank a six-foot birdie putt at the par-4 17th, the fourth and final birdie of the round on the day's hardest hole, then chipped inches from the cup at 18 and made par to secure the triumph.

In her US Women's Open debut last year, Park led by two shots after 36 holes but closed with back-to-back 74s and settled for a share of third.

Park's victory also marked her first LPGA triumph for a tour rookie who won seven times on the Korean LPGA Tour last year, topping its money list.
