Feng holds early lead at US Women's Open

Lydia Ko's simple U.S. Women's Open drill is something that could help every golfer

"Listen, we're not the moral character of the United States of America".

It marks the second straight day Trump has headed to the skybox during the afternoon.

Photo President Trump and his son Eric watched some of the round from a viewing box near the 18th green.

There's a decade's worth of age difference amongst the top four players.

That's what a president can do for crowds not used to being within a 100 yards of one.

Thompson was asked if she noticed what was happening on the 15th and where the fans were looking.

Lincicome said she wasn't taking an anti-Trump stand, just a stand against the potentially chaotic work environment Trump's appearance could create. It was the first time a sitting president had been at the U.S. Women's Open. Michelle Wie, the 2014 U.S. Women's Open victor, withdrew Friday morning because of a sore right shoulder. This policy governs not only the conduct of our employees, but safeguards staff, players and fans at all USGA events.

Earlier in the round, the Henderson group was playing the ninth hole when the President's motorcade arrived at the club, which has become the "Summer Whitehouse".

Activists angered by Trump's controversial comments about women during his presidential campaign had urged the USGA to move the tournament, the richest event in women's golf.

UltraViolet co-founder Shaunna Thomas told CNNMoney that the tournament will be held on "the course of a known sexual predator", a reference to the women who accused Trump of sexual assault and to the recording in which Trump bragged about groping women.

"I heard people like kind of screaming so that's what I was trying to find out, like why they were screaming", she said.

"Also, that was my first time to play in China this year, so I really wanted to see my family and all my friends back home". I did a lot of that today which was great, especially on those downhills where they get really fast.

That was good enough for a two-stroke lead over South Korea's Lee Jeong Eun6, Amy Yang and Choi Hye Jin, who all shared second on 138. I know there are some low (scores) out there like minus six and usually I feel like the USGA gives us an opportunity to score on Thursday as long as you hit it in the right places and it will get tougher as the week goes on.

Rio Games silver medallist Ko played in a group with Feng and gold medallist Park In Bee (77) in an Olympic podium threesome and bogeyed the last after hitting a wedge from the fringe rather than putting through the frog's hair.

Lee uses the "6" after her first name because there are six other South Korean players with the same name.

Feng, who played an event last week in China and arrived in Bedminster exhausted Monday after an overnight flight, scored in bursts with two batches of three birdies in a bogey-free round at the course some 50 miles west of Manhattan. Having a chance to do it in her backyard is possible after Alex put herself in position to make a legitimate run at hoisting the hardware come Sunday evening.

"I honestly had no idea where he actually was", Lewis said. "Just here to have fun".
