Trump greeted warmly at US Women's Open

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

Trump drew much of the attention Friday afternoon at his Trump National Golf Club, which was awarded the U.S. Women's Open in 2012.

Britain's Charley Hull finished on level par, while Jodi Ewart Shadoff, Georgia Hall and Catriona Matthew are yet to complete their rounds.

Feng, who played an event last week in China and arrived in Bedminster exhausted on Monday after an overnight flight, scored in bursts with two batches of three birdies in a bogey-free round at the course some 80km west of Manhattan. "We had a lot of people yelling and just a lot of movement, but it's pretty cool to be in the presence of the president, so I guess he gets a pass". She was just in front of the green of the 541-yard par-5 in two and then hit a mediocre chip shot that ran by the hole and up the hill, leaving her a treacherous attempt which swept to the left for birdie. Both were one-under for the day on their opening nine holes.

"I heard people like kind of screaming so that's what I was trying to find out, like why they were screaming", tourney leader Shanshan Feng said after carding a second-round 2-under 70.

Feng was playing in the group behind Henderson.

Rio Games silver medalist Ko played in a group with Feng and gold medalist 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. "I have been battling a neck injury and have been receiving treatment every day in order to be able to play".

Amazon launches a Geek Squad competitor in 7 cities
Right now, the company will send a technician to your home for about $99, if you live in one of several West Coast cities. But now that Amazon is getting into home consultations, Best Buy should be anxious that it will keep expanding.

He stated that he will be there on Friday afternoon.

"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.

Among the cluster of players tied for sixth at three-under par, Rachel Heck is the best story.

Seong, from South Korea, enters play as the reigning U.S. Girls' Junior Amateur and U.S. Women's Amateur champion.

The grouping worked for Feng, one of the LPGA's engaging personalities who was wearing some her signature cow spot prints Thursday.

It keeps the 20-year-old within sight of the lead at the year's third major tournament, on three-under.

Lexi Thompson, the top-ranked player from the United States, has a win and four seconds, while No. 4 Lydia Ko of New Zealand has something to prove after blowing the lead in the final round a year ago. "This is my 10th year on the Tour". So I don't take that as an excuse if I don't play well this week. The Chinese star added another at No. 1 and then parred her last eight holes. I don't think that's going to happen again. "I made so many putts today and it really kept me in it which is great". That plan turned into Meadowlands Xanadu, which was succeeded by American Dream Meadowlands - giving me 15 years of well-read coverage (and counting).
