Michelle Wie withdraws from US Open due to neck pain

China's Shanshan Feng holds the clubhouse lead after carding a six-under-par 66 at the US Women's Open, as bad weather delayed the first round. "It's wonderful the U.S. President is here watching us play golf". A few hours later, he watched from an enclosed glass box next to the 14th green and stole the show.

As the Post noted, "Trump has always been a prominent supporter of the LPGA Tour, hosting several events and inviting top female golfers to play rounds on his courses".

There was a lot of commotion while Henderson and Americans Lexi Thompson and Stacy Lewis played the hole as the crowd turn to catch a glimpse of the President.

"There's no benefit to us giving comments ... about this", golfer Cristie Kerr said when asked about the venue.

"It will be the first time a sitting president has attended the US Women's Open and is only the third occurrence in our entire championship history".

"I can appreciate that some people do; that's what's great about this country, that everyone has their own political views".

"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.

"Our priority is to ensure that the event takes place the better for the players and spectators", said the USGA in a news release.

Iraqi forces retake Mosul, the Islamic State's de-facto capital
Iraq's Prime Minister has arrived in Mosul to celebrate military forces capturing the city from so-called Islamic State . Troops from Iraqi Special Forces marked the victory by planting the Iraqi flag on the bank of the Tigris River.

Players faced uncomfortable questions from reporters this week about Trump, and at least four US senators have called for the United States Golf Association to move the tournament, three of them citing the president's "pattern of degrading and dehumanizing women".

The second-round leaderboard was anything but "America First", however, with the top nine all internationals players on the rain-soaked course.

Feng had three birdies and a bogey for a 36-hole total of 8-under 136.

"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. "Overall, I did really well today".

"But luckily my ball-striking was pretty good so I hit most of the balls on the greens. 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". "I'm hitting good and I'm putting good and I'm feeling good about my game right now". Choi ran off four straight birdies to move into a tie for the lead with Feng at 8-under, but poor chipping led to bogeys on her 16 and 17 holes, and a 69 left her at 138.

Lee uses the "6" after her first name because there are six other South Korean players with the same name.

Feng, who has never finished better than fourth in the Open (2012), started her round on the 10th hole and played the back side in 5 under, rolling in five birdies. She said she received Trump-branded swag and a little Donald Trump doll in her locker for doing well.
