President Trump to Attend US Women's Open

Lydia Ko US Women's Open rd 1

BEDMINSTER, N.J. The U.S. Women's Open has not had a repeat victor since Karrie Webb in 2001 and the chances of Brittany Lang doing it this year don't seem good.

On one of the more challenging tournament days in recent memory, when a first round that began Thursday finished on Friday and the rain, heavy at times, barely took a break until late in the day, it was Shanshan Feng, the queen of cool, at the top of the leaderboard when 36 holes were finally in the books.

The road outside the club was relatively traffic-free and those in in attendance were there for the golf.

Protests were expected outside the highly secured grounds and the US Golf Association is under fire for failing to move the richest event in women's golf over Trump's controversial remarks about women during his presidential campaign.

Seon Woo Bae was alone in fifth place at 5 under after a 69. Henderson (71) and Lydia Ko (73) also were 3 under.

Ko, playing alongside Feng, grabbed a share of the lead after recording three birdies in a five-hole span to join her fellow competitor at 6 under par. 11 and 12 followed by pars the rest of the way for her 70.

"Our focus remains on conducting the championship and ensuring a great experience for the players and fans this week".


For other spectators, the tournament's appeal was a chance to get a glimpse of the president's course and "seeing somebody who can hit the ball straight, because I can't", Bill Guttridge, a 62-year-old from Millstone Township in Central New Jersey, said.

Lincicome said she wasn't taking an anti-Trump stand, just a stand against the potentially chaotic work environment Trump's appearance could create. Her response was to burst out laughing and walk away. She drove into the rough on the right and had to hack it out.

Shanshan Feng had her best round in the U.S. Women's Open, and the first-round lead.

Not everyone was up to the challenges of the day. A second stoppage occurred at 5:44 p.m., and play was called with 30 players left on the course.

Kupcho is coming off a strong sophomore season at Wake Forest that saw her win the NCAA Women's South Regional and finish in the runner-up position in both the NCAA Women's Championship and ACC Women's Championship.

She made her first bogey of the tournament on the 13th hole when she missed the green right, pitched five feet behind the hole and missed high on the right side. Her approach spun back on the apron on the 10th as the greens started out unusually soft and she made a nice up and down from there. This past year with the Blue Devils Maguire, from Ireland, won two Golfweek/AmateurGolf.com Rankings titles, the ACC Championship and LSU Tiger Golf Classic. The first day featured several golfers having to stop and continue their rounds on Friday morning due to darkness.

Six months and many Trump interviews later, Governor Corzine pulled the plug on the project - but not before a bevy of frpnt-;page stories.
