Feng takes one-shot lead at US Women's Open

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.

In the middle of all that, President Trump, who has made Trump National his summer White House, cruised into the club at 3:40 p.m.in a convoy of black vehicles, paused to wave to reporters before heading inside and later watched from a booth near the 15th green.

However, there have been concerns over the potential for protests to come about at the event.

There were no demonstrators. "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".

Amy Yang stood in second place but, after shooting a 71, her deficit grew to two shots.

Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., is the top Canadian with a 2-under 70.

The cut, which fell at three-over, claimed Hamilton's Alena Sharp (76-72) and amateur Maddie Szeryk of London, Ont. (72-77).

The Royal and Ancient Golf Club (the body that oversees the rest of the world) had previously moved all future Open Championships away from Trump Turnberry and Trump Golf International Golf Links. Carlota Ciganda also was 4 under with a hole left.

Then, she shared her love affair for American food.

Former Open victor Cristie Kerr, who played with back spasms, and Megan Khang were the best US finishers at 69.

Amanda Nunes confident she'll 'take home her belt' ahead of UFC 213
Amanda Nunes puts her title on the line in a rematch with Valentina Shevchenko in the main event of UFC 213 on Saturday. The first bout begins at 3:30, with Fox Sports 1 airing four fights from the preliminary card at 5.

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. She added another at No. 1 and then parred her last eight holes.

She said that the Kumho Tire Ladies Open in Shandong had proved to be a good warm-up for her - the course was narrow and forced her to hit the ball straight. Just rolled right through, and that's 20 minutes of sleep I could have used.

After watching golf on television with about a dozen people for about an hour, Trump exited the viewing area and got into a vehicle.

The most colorful response came from Danielle Kang, who shared a memory from 2009, when she played the course as a junior golfer.

Riding in a motorcade of more than a dozen black SUVs, the president rolled in to the 500-acre Trump National, becoming the first sitting USA head of state to attend the championship.

If unsuccessful this week, Ko will have gone more than a year since her last LPGA Tour win, at the Marathon Classic.

South Korean Yang, who has finished top four in all but one of the last five championships, was one back in second place after a five-under 67.

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.

The 27-year-old who now calls Orlando, Florida, home, refused to say this would be the year she won the Open.

"I didn't really pay attention to the weather", she said.
