KO drops back in US Open


I just couldn't get the line and the speed together.

Donald Trump finally unlatched his hand from French President Emmanuel Macron yesterday and returned stateside, flying Air Force One directly to Trump National golf course in New Jersey and joining attendees at the U.S. Women's Open for a few rounds of the ol' ball-hole, as I call it.

Feng was the star on the course for the second straight day.

Outside the course, a small procession of cars and trucks circled the course and bore signs criticizing Trump and supporting women's rights.

"I had three birdies in the first four holes and then after that I just felt so comfortable about everything", said Feng, who had never broken 70 in 10 previous Women's Open appearances. It is the first time Feng has broken 70 in an Open.

Two strokes back are three Koreans - Amy Yang, Jeongeun Lee and amateur Hye Jin Choi.

It also was suggested that if the president attended the event it would take the spotlight from the players. She won the 2017 Korean LPGA SBS Ladies Open.

He emerged from his exclusive "skybox" after more than three and a half hours watching the U.S. Women's Open, walked down a short flight of steps and then looked up at the crowd on a balcony nearby. She said incurred spasms "probably from picking up my son or my golf bag".

Bogeys on four successive holes - the third to the sixth - undid much of her good work on the first day, followed by another on the 11th.

NOTES: The last Women's Open champion to lead solo wire to wire was Hollis Stacy in 1977.

"Unless if I'm like maybe like way back, then my caddy will know, 'now, we have to be really aggressive, '" Feng said.

"It was a little crazy, " she said.

"Plan B. I try to hit the ball closer to the holes so I don't need to worry about making the putts". Among the guests of Trump in his secured viewing area was LPGA veteran Suzann Pettersen of Norway, whom Trump kissed on both cheeks when they greeted each other.

"Just got to the #USWomensOpen in Bedminster, New Jersey".

"I respect the office of the president", the 39-year-old said. Playing in front of a gallery that included President Donald Trump, she began her round with 17 consecutive pars, extending that stretch to 23 starting from the 13th hole on Friday. But Ko missed a 15-foot par putt at the fifth before closing her round with a bogey at the ninth. So I was kind of excited about the prospect of, regardless of who it is, that he came here to watch us.

While Kerr was playing No. 11, there was some commotion in the sky, which she insisted was not a distraction.

Second-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn shot 79. Kerr, who has a personal relationship with Trump and is a member at the course, was not even allowed to take her Diet Coke into the special box.

"Shanshan is one of the most consistent players on tour", Ko said. The South Korean didn't make the same mistake this year. The Old Course, a Tom Fabio design, opened in 2004. And our promise to you is that we will always strive to provide indispensable journalism to our community.
