Weary Feng not cowed by jet lag, shoots into lead

Chinese LPGA Tour player shares her love affair with American food

US Women's Open expected to draw protesters to Trump's Bedminster course

The "6" in Lee's name is said to be used to distinguish her from five other Korean players.

Feng - victor of the 2012 PGA Championship - opened with a 66 as Thursday's first round was suspended due to darkness.

Players faced uncomfortable questions from reporters this week about Trump, and at least four US senators have called for the United States Golf Association to move the tournament, three of them citing the president's "pattern of degrading and dehumanizing women".

The tournament tees off Thursday at the Trump National Golf Club - despite the protests of women's rights activists, who urged the organizers to move the event somewhere else. "It helped me get through the rain and get through some of the conditions so the rest of the holes I could kind of relax a little bit and play a little better".

Miyazato got off to a bogey start on the 10th hole and finally broke into a smile when she birdied the par-5 18th, making the turn at even par. She won what was then the LPGA Championship in 2012. I just couldn't swing.

That would not only add to the degree of difficulty of an already daunting task, but it would turn this into the most memorable week of her golfing life and become nearly impossible to top - regardless of where she takes her promising career. "We're simply not going to cross that line into politics", Davis said at a May 24 preview day for the tournament. She is a 15-year-old sophomore at St. Agnes Academy in Memphis who earned her spot in this event by finishing second in a qualifying event last month. "My ball striking was decent but it wasn't as good as it sometimes is and I felt like my putting really bailed me out".

"I didn't have the best shot in front of him", she said with a laugh after her second round of even-par 72.

"Obviously it's incredible because it's here in New Jersey but to contend in a U.S. Open, regardless of where the location is, is unbelievable", Alex said. She bogeyed her 14th and then the last. "By showing up, Trump elevated the profile of the women, whose attendance and television audience have not grown as fast as their talent pool, which is so deep that the first 18 events of the 2017 L.P.G.A. Tour season produced 17 different winners". "Two birdies back-to-back and not bogeys today, which is great".

Amateur Rachel Heck, the 15-year-old from Memphis, Tennessee, who is the youngest player in the field, also was at 3 under with five holes to play.

The heat and humidity were already building at the course that Donald Trump built when Henderson teed off at 7:07 a.m. from the 10th tee in a marquee group with Americans Lexi Thompson and Stacy Lewis. During her round Thursday - which included a two-hour weather delay - Wie received neck massages from her father, B.J., and saw a physical therapist on the course.

Second-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn and two-time Open champion Inbee Park also missed the cut.
