Play Suspended At US Women's Open

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

Feng, a native of China, fired a 6-under-par 66 to take the lead in an opening round at the 72nd United States Women's Open Championship that was halted by darkness.

Trump's visit during the weekend tournament also poses a security challenge because his residence is on the course, where fans and players pass by throughout the day.

Though there were some anti-Trump protesters, most of the golfers welcomed Trump's presence.

Thompson noticed where the attention had gone.

"Yeah", she said, "not towards the golf".

Henderson, a Canadian, didn't seem to mind.

"On my front nine, the rain was really heavy", said Olympic bronze medallist Feng, the world number six who has won seven LPGA events, including one major.

Spectators have applauded and have their photo taken when he appeared at the window to greet them, and the organizers have had to claim the silence to not disturb the players.

The 2014 U.S. Women's Open champion had limited practice in the days leading up to competition at Trump National.

Michelle Wie has withdrawn from the 2017 U.S. Women's Open due to a neck injury.

Feng, whose swing mirrors her personality - carefree and whimsical - was more than up for the myriad of obstacles tossed at her.

Alfred Angelo Bridal retailer reportedly closing its doors
Social media posts claiming the South Florida-based company was going out of business started spreading like wildfire Thursday. With her wedding in 100 days, Busboom said this unforeseen snag won't get her down. "I'm not anxious about it", he said.

Ciganda is only through 17 holes though, with play stopped for the day at 8.33pm local time.

You are likely to see Trump perched in a skybox above the 18 green admiring the mental toughness of world class athletes; not seated at a pageant rehearsal and separating contestants he found sexually appealing from those who would retreat to the dressing room in tears.

For the players' part, the focus is on the game. "That's something that I've been working on really hard over the last few years".

Amy Yang remained in second place.

McIlroy shot a 1-under 71, and his 1-over total was 10 strokes behind co-leaders Padraig Harrington (68), Callum Shinkwin (68) and Alexander Knappe (65). Yang has four top-five finishes in the event in the past five years.

"Just to be in position, obviously it's incredible, because it's here in New Jersey", Alex said. I'm really looking forward to play the weekend. "My ball striking has been pretty good but I was kind of struggling about my putting".

USA player Lexi Thompson - who has played with Trump in Florida - said she felt "pretty comfortable" playing in front of him on Friday, adding that it was "definitely entertaining" to have him at the course.

Jeongeun6 Lee of South Korea shot her second straight 69 and was second at 6 under. "So I'm already very happy with what I'm doing and I'm not going to feel any pressure". "Just here to have fun".

She finished as the leading amateur in last year's US Women's Open and believes that experience is helping this year. Among those eliminated were KPMG Women's PGA champion Danielle Kang (147), former Women's Open champion Paula Creamer (150), two-time Open victor Inbee Park (151), and Ariya Jutanugarn (151), the world's No. 2-ranked player.

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. 5 and 9 after she tied Feng for the lead.
