Trump Arrives at His Golf Course During US Women's Open

Trump Arrives at His Golf Course During US Women's Open

"Just to be in position, obviously it's incredible, because it's here in New Jersey", Alex said.

Only three sitting presidents have attended USGA events with Warren G. Harding (1921) and Bill Clinton (1997) going to the U.S. Open.

Grilled on Trump's possible appearance in pre-tournament news conferences this week, one player after another said her focus was on golf, with players uniformly declining to weigh in with any opinions on Trump.

Will the President show up to the women's crown jewel of golf this weekend or not?

It drizzled on Donald Trump's Bedminster Golf Club today as a political tempest buffeted women golfers playing at the U.S. Open Tournament, their female presence viewed by some as inappropriate, given the President's sub par reputation with women's rights groups.

But fans at the course seemed glad to see the president, cheering as he waved to the crowd.

Americans Lewis (-2), Christie Kerr (-2) and Lexi Thompson (-1), who has played some rounds with Trump in Florida, are still in the hunt.

All three paused to check the commotion.

In the weeks leading up to this event, the United States Golf Association and the players of the LPGA Tour said that the event was about golf, not politics, and hoped to keep it that way.

World No.6 Shanshan Feng was, like most others, in the clubhouse at that point and leads on six-under-par - one clear of Amy Yang and two ahead of Lydia Ko, So Yeon Ryu and Carlota Ciganda.

"I made a few mistakes reading the wind too. I'm kind of used to it". The Bedminster library has been designated by Somerset County officials as the First Amendment gathering place for both Trump protesters and supporters.

The USGA has been criticized for not changing the site of the tournament after comments made by the president about women were disclosed previous year during the presidential campaign.

A heavy thundershower interrupted the afternoon wave for 2hr 5min and play was called off due to failing light.

Former Open victor Cristie Kerr and Megan Khang were the best USA finishers, tied at 69. "But we're dealing with it".

The 32-year-old Okinawa native struggled with the speed of the greens and bogeyed again at the par-4 fifth, but capped her round by rolling in a 16-footer for birdie. "I was like waiting for them to pull me out of my auto and nothing".

"But I think making that good bogey putt on 6, was it, I think that really helped with the momentum where mentally I wasn't just getting dragged too much down because of that and I'm happy with the way I fought back in the back nine".

"I don't think it's a problem". I have met him probably once.

It's unclear whether Trump will attend the tournament that runs through Sunday, said Matt Sawicki, director of USGA championships.

Trump National was named as the site for the 2017 U.S. Women's Open in 2012, long before the golf-loving real estate magnate and reality TV star officially entered politics. "If it's allowing more people to see us play our game, I don't see anything wrong with that".
