Shanshan's closest competitors are Yang, who has 16 top-10s in majors without winning one; Lee, who has the 6 in her name because there are five other players on the KLPGA with the same name; and Choi, the No.2 ranked amateur in the world who was cruising along until she bogeyed two of her last three holes.

"If the President of the United States decides to attend the US Women's Open Championship, we welcome him", the governing body said in a statement.

Photo President Trump and his son Eric watched some of the round from a viewing box near the 18th green.

Thompson was asked if she noticed what was happening on the 15th and where the fans were looking.

Ryan O'Toole, who said she was happy to finish her round before the president's arrival, noted that she allowed 20 additional minutes to get through security and to the course.

Henderson, a Canadian, didn't seem to mind. "It will be the first time a sitting president has attended the U.S. Women's Open and is only the third occurrence in our entire championship history".

The USGA, which awarded this event to Trump in 2012, took a lot of criticism for failing to move the tournament when comments made by Trump about women came to light in the past year. This policy governs not only the conduct of our employees, but safeguards staff, players and fans at all USGA events.

The weather is supposed clear, but the President will still be watching and it will still be the U.S. Women's Open.

"How many chances are you going to get to play on a president's golf course during a U.S. Open?"

Feng said it proved to be a good warm-up for her - the course was narrow and forced her to hit the ball straight.

Alex, who shot a 2-under 70 in the morning rain Friday, said she set a 4:30 a.m. wakeup call in case of delays at the course. The Bedminster library has been designated by Somerset County officials as the First Amendment gathering place for both Trump protesters and supporters.

"I heard people like kind of screaming, so that's what I was trying to find out, like why they were screaming", Feng said of the movement around the green, where marshals had to remind the gallery that play was continuing.

For the players' part, the focus is on the game.

After nine holes of her second round, Ko was four-over for her round and even par for the tournament - seven shots behind Feng and in a tie for 28th after starting the day just two back. Yang has four top-five finishes in the event in the past five years.

"I didn't hit the best shot in front of him", she said with a laugh. "I got a lot of really good breaks, made some putts and now I'm on my way to the weekend and hopefully put myself in contention over the next two days".
