He asked the USGA to move the tournament to another New Jersey course. "It's going to draw attention to women's golf that has maybe never been in our favor before".

"I secretly want to be a Secret Service agent", Angela Stanford said after completing her round a bit before Trump got to Bedminster. Trump's son Eric mingled with spectators outside the clubhouse throughout the day.

Then again, he is the president — and its his club.

For sure, the rust that had accumulated since she was last able to go full out was on display, as Wie scuffled to a 3-over 39 in her outgoing-9.

All three paused to check the commotion.

"When I was first traveling over here, my goal was to make the cut", said Choi.

Stanford, who is tied for 14th at 2-under 142, six strokes behind leader Shanshan Feng, should get her wish over the weekend. "I will be nervous and excited on the first tee tomorrow. I'm kind of used to it".

But the USGA said Trump would be more than welcome at one of their flagship events.

But the organization ultimately doubled down on its decision to hold the event at the president's golf club, arguing that it would not pull the tournament from the location based on politics. They deserve the chance to compete in their national championship alongside the greatest players in the world. That meant earlier wakeup calls and additional stress arriving at the site. Lightning delayed play for 2 hours, 5 minutes late in the afternoon and 30 players were still on the course when the horn sounded to stop play for the day at 8:33 p.m. Play was scheduled to resume at 7 a.m. Friday. "To be in my fifth U.S. Open and have it happen is really cool". "But we're dealing with it".

"I don't think they will get any advantage from saying whether they agree or disagree, and I mean I don't really think that really has much to say with me because I think it is really up to him whether he wants to come or not", Park said.

"That's not the plans right now", Davis said. "I was trying to find out why they were screaming".

The 72-hole tournament, which is scheduled to finish on Sunday, has had to share the spotlight with President Donald Trump, who owns the course.

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

"We have an unbelievable group of talented women playing golf right now", Alex said.

Seong, from South Korea, enters play as the reigning U.S. Girls' Junior Amateur and U.S. Women's Amateur champion. "This one is close to home", and "it was neat to see the motorcade" when the president arrived. "Coming in this week, I made a little adjustment with my coach".

BEDMINSTER, N.J. The U.S. Women's Open has not had a repeat victor since Karrie Webb in 2001 and the chances of Brittany Lang doing it this year don't seem good. "But they're human and a lot of times they see people they know, or they see a crowd".
