Shanshan Feng leads US Women's Open by two at the halfway mark

Chinese LPGA Tour player shares her love affair with American food

Trump had been in France as part of that nation's Bastille Day celebrations.

"It's not like you have to beat 156 of the best women golfers", Inkster said.

Maintaining boundaries between the president and the public is crucial, as is being able to adjust on the fly, according to Thom Bolsch, a retired Secret Service agent who served under Presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. 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 stood at the windows and waved.

But they came to Bedminster "mostly to see [Trump's] club", and when they heard on the radio during their drive Friday morning that the president planned to attend the tournament, they texted all their Trump supporter friends.

"I seem to struggle when I've gone to Atlantic City [for the annual Shoprite Classic] to play, " she said. "I was trying to find out why they were screaming". "I SO BADLY wanted to play today and the rest of this week".

Lydia Ko (New Zealand) and So Yeon Ryu (South Korea) both finished at 4-under. She birdied No. 1, ran off 11 pars in a row before making her first bogey of the tournament on No. 13, then birdied the next hole.

Presidents have been a big part of sporting events for many, many years.

This happening, as the president comes under fire for praising the French's first lady, for being, "in good shape", Thursday, according to French government officials.

No matter how the rest of this weekend plays out for Heck, she's already put the rest of the LPGA on notice. "It was full determination".

It also was suggested that if the president attended the event it would take the spotlight from the players. Maybe it's analogous to the Rules of Golf. UltraViolet and several other activist groups are protesting the USGA's decision to play the women's championship at a Trump property, with those groups accusing Trump of sexism and degradation of women.

Per the United States Golf Association, the first round will resume at 6:45 a.m. ET and second-round tee times will be pushed back by 15 minutes. We realize people have different positions about things. "We love the LPGA".

"I hope he doesn't show up", Scofield says. "That office deserves respect".

The rain at the U.S. Women's Open finally stopped late Friday, but the course remained wet and playing long. That fact is not lost on the players. Her best finish in a Women's Open was a tie for fourth in 2012. Some people didn't know it was going on. "It's kind of a historic and cool moment to have our president here".

Feng said she wasn't bothered by the sometimes heavy rain that fell through much of her round, and she didn't get too distracted to the arrival of U.S. President Donald Trump, who has made his namesake club in Bedminster a frequent weekend retreat this summer. "We have an unbelievable group of talented women playing golf right now".

UltraViolet is now taking aim at the golf organization's decision to hold the tournament at the club.
