It's a major. It's everything that I've always wanted as a little girl, to lift that major trophy."As I said, I can finally breathe now and just enjoy the moment because I was definitely really nervous. I feel sick to my stomach."A late surge from Sweden's Maja Stark helped her finish second on 11 under, while American Lauren Coughlin - who shot the best round of the day with a four-under 68 - ending joint third on 10 under alongside Canada's Brooke Henderson.Ryu's round of 74 meant she finished fifth.English trio Georgia Hall, Charley Hull and Lottie Woad - who won the Augusta National Women's Amateur earlier this month - all ended the tournament with a share of 23rd place, on one under.Northern Ireland's Stephanie Meadow was a shot further back.

Bellingham strikes late as Real beat furious Barcelona

Jude Bellingham scored a late winner as Real Madrid beat Barcelona to move 11 points clear at the top of La Liga after an enthralling El Clasico.Bellingham smashed into the roof of the net as the clock ticked into stoppage time as Real twice came from behind at the Bernabeu.Andres Christensen scored the opener for Barcelona but a Vinicius Jr penalty had the game level at half-time.Fermin Lopez made it 2-1 to Barca before Lucas Vazquez equalised again.The victory puts Real firmly on track to reclaim the title with just six games left to play this season.It looked set to be a positive night for Barcelona when Christensen rose above Toni Kroos to meet Raphinha's corner after just six minutes.But those celebrations were short lived as referee Cesar Soto Grado pointed to the penalty spot when Pau Cubarsi fouled Vazquez in the area, handing Vinicius the opportunity to score his 13th La Liga goal of the campaign.Lamine Yamal thought he had restored Barcelona's lead when he flicked a corner towards goal and goalkeeper Andriy Lunin, who was behind the line, clawed it away. Barcelona were adamant the ball had cross the line but, as La Liga does not have goalline technology, the video assistant referee decided it that was not the case.A tense second half came to life in the 69th minute with Lopez turning in from close range after Lunin parried a cross into his path.However, Carlo Ancelotti's Real drew level for a second time just four minutes later with Vazquez emerging unmarked at the far post to meet Vinicius' cross.The win extends Real's unbeaten record across all competitions to 28 matches - winning 22 and drawing six - with their last loss at home coming against Villarreal on 8 April 2023.Bellingham rises to occasion once againBellingham is becoming accustomed to delivering on the big stage for Real and few are bigger than a Clasico.The England midfielder got a first taste of the historic fixture in October when he scored twice to lead his side to a 2-1 win at Estadio Olímpico Lluis Companys, and he has continued to step up in the key moments throughout his debut campaign in Spain.His last-gasp winner at the Bernabeu means he is the first Real player to score in their first two La Liga El Clasico's since Ruud van Nistelrooy in 2007.The 103m euros (£88.5m) that Real handed over to Borussia Dortmund to sign Bellingham in the summer is looking like more of a bargain with each week that passes and he certainly does not look out of place with Zinedine Zidane's iconic number five on his back.With 17 goals in La Liga this term, Bellingham is the second highest scorer in the division - just one behind Girona's Artem Dovbyk - and he continues to dazzle as Real look to end the season with a La Liga and Champions League double.'It's a disgrace' - XaviBarcelona coach Xavi was furious after VAR officials could not prove that Yamal's effort had crossed the line."It's a disgrace," said Xavi, complaining that the goalline technology used in other top flights including the Premier League is not available in La Liga."If we want to be the best league in the world we have to advance in this sense, you have to put in the technology."Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen agreed with his coach."It's shameful for football, I don't have the words," said the Germany international."There's so much money in this world and there's no money for what's most important."Line-upsReal MadridFormation 4-1-2-1-213Lunin17Vázquez18Tchouaméni22Rüdiger12Camavinga8Kroos15Valverde10Modric5Bellingham7Vinícius Júnior11Rodrygo13Lunin17Vázquez18Tchouaméni22Rüdiger12CamavingaBooked at 33minsSubstituted forGarcíaat 71'minutes8KroosSubstituted forDíazat 71'minutes15Valverde10ModricBooked at 83mins5Bellingham7Vinícius JúniorBooked at 75minsSubstituted forJoseluat 82'minutes11RodrygoSubstituted forMilitãoat 74'minutesSubstitutes2Carvajal3Militão6Nacho14Joselu19Ceballos20García21Díaz23Mendy24Güler25Arrizabalaga Revuelta39de LuisBarcelonaFormation 4-3-31ter Stegen23Koundé4Araujo33Cubarsí2Cancelo22Gündogan15Christensen21F de Jong27Yamal9Lewandowski11Raphinha1ter Stegen23KoundéBooked at 75mins4Araujo33CubarsíBooked at 90mins2Cancelo22Gündogan15ChristensenSubstituted forLópezat 45'minutes21F de JongSubstituted forPedriat 45+7'minutes27Yamal9LewandowskiSubstituted forF Torresat 64'minutes11RaphinhaSubstituted forJoão Félixat 64'minutesSubstitutes5Martínez7F Torres8Pedri13Peña Sotorres14João Félix16López17Alonso18Romeu19Roque Ferreira20Roberto31Kochen39FortReferee:César Soto GradoAttendance:77,981Match StatsLive TextPost updateMatch ends, Real Madrid 3, Barcelona 2.

‘Hat-trick of howlers’ – Forest question VAR and ‘consider options’

Nottingham Forest say they are "considering their options" over "extremely poor" refereeing decisions following their 2-0 defeat at Everton.The club said they had "warned" the Professional Game Match Officials Board (PGMOL) that "the VAR is a Luton fan but they didn't change him"."Three extremely poor decisions - three penalties not given - which we simply cannot accept," the club said on X.external-link"Our patience has been tested multiple times."Although they did not name the official, the video assistant referee was Stuart Attwell. Nottingham Forest issued the highly critical post on the social network on Sunday at 15:42 BST, about five minutes after full-time in the match at Goodison Park - which left the club one point above the relegation zone.Questioned about the club's post, Forest boss Nuno Espirito Santo said it was "not important if he [Attwell] is a fan of another club". He added: "I share the feeling of the club because is it not only this game. It is has been a while that we have had poor decisions going against us. It is not an excuse but we are not happy with the work of the referees."BBC Sport is contacting referees' board the PGMOL for comment, and understands the Football Association is aware of the post and investigating.'I don't understand the decision' - what happened to anger Forest?All three penalty claims centred on incidents involving Everton's veteran ex-England defender Ashley Young.Forest felt he caught the back of Gio Reyna's boot in attempting to make a tackle when the game was goalless.Then, late in the first half, after Everton had taken the lead, a Callum Hudson-Odoi cross struck Young on the arm.The third incident happened after the interval, with the Toffees still 1-0 ahead, as Young tangled with Hudson-Odoi in the area but the officials ruled he had won the ball cleanly."I don't understand the reason and the decision of [referee] Anthony Taylor and VAR Stuart Attwell, because I see the images," Nuno told Sky Sports."It is hard to take. There is a penalty on Gio Reyna, it's a kick, don't tell me that is not contact. It's a penalty, then a handball, then the situation of the incident with Callum. "So it's understandable that we react like this as a club because we want to get things right. We don't want bad referees. We want good decisions."OK, if we lost the game today and there were no incidents, we take it."'A hat-trick of howlers' - Clattenburg has his sayThe Daily Mail's website published a column on Sunday night by Mark Clattenburg, the retired referee who is Forest's referee analyst, defending the club's response.He wrote: "One of these errors would have been bad enough. Three was a joke, and that is why Nottingham Forest were left feeling victimised after another defeat in which zero big decisions went their way."In a season where they have had to endure some egregious refereeing, this trip to Everton was as grim a game as they have encountered since returning to the Premier League."These situations were precisely why video technology was brought into the Premier League and yet, Attwell did not send Taylor to his monitor. Not once. It was a hat-trick of howlers from the refereeing team and, unfortunately for Forest, a continuation of an unjust trend that has hampered their survival fight."You will have seen the statement released by the club - how the PGMOL were contacted to warn that it was not appropriate for a Luton fan such as Attwell to play such a pivotal role in a massive match that would impact the relegation race."How did we get here?In August, Forest lodged a complaint with the PGMOL over the performance of the officials in their 3-2 defeat at Manchester United.Then in March, Clattenburg criticised the officiating in the build-up to Liverpool's dramatic winner at the City Ground.Forest are still hoping to get some respite from their appeal against the deduction of four points for breaching profit and sustainability rules.BBC Radio 5 Live's football correspondent John Murray said: "Mark Clattenburg was once considered the best referee we had in this country, he has now got a role with Nottingham Forest - you would think he would be very much involved with this."So Nottingham Forest with that statement will be confident with what they are saying, but I still think it is a remarkable thing to say."The FA, Howard Webb and the PGMOL - it will certainly ruffle feathers from them. What they have to say about this is the next step."Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy told BBC Match of the Day: "A bizarre situation that has has shocked us all. There was some poor decision making but the response is strange."I have always felt our referees try to do the best they can. There has been a lot of bad officiating and incompetency this season and today was the same. "
