It was after a foul spell spread across the library on campus that a fire brigade was sent out an alert stating a chemical hazard. In 2014, patients and staff from a Melbourne hospital were evacuated amid concerns there was a gas leak at one of the wards.

"When that putt dropped I used to be like, 'Oh my God.' Loads of feelings, my entire workforce and my household have labored actually exhausting for this second". "A lot of emotions, my whole team and my family have worked really hard for this moment".

Hataoka opened with two straight birdies on the front nine, but cancelled out two birdies with bogeys on the last nine holes. "I was able to hit a good shot again".

Angel Yin, Shanshan Feng, Charley Hull and Jessica Korda, who started the day one stroke behind Ko, the 54-hole leader, tied for third at eight-under-par 280.

The sketch that Trump was referring to was of a man Daniels said approached her in a parking lot while she was with her daughter. Trump retweeted the sketch of the person earlier this month, calling him "a nonexistent man".

Ko took a one-shot lead in to Sunday but bogeyed three of her opening six holes to open the door for the chasing pack, only to roll in a 10-footer at the seventh and add another birdie at the 10th.

"It's insane because I was 3-over for the day at one stage and I said, 'Hey, you've just got to focus and you never know what's going to happen, ".

Ko made birdie at the 13th and 14th holes to keep pace with Lee ahead of her, before a clutch chip from the edge of the green at the 18th forced the playoff.

"I knew that my game was there, but I just kind of need to put the pieces together and I felt like I was able to do that this week". In the end, she found that good things come to good people, even if it sometimes means waiting a little while.
