Golf Roundup; Feng Leading by One Shot at Open

Article excerpt

Shanshan Feng maintained the lead halfway through the second round of a U.S. Women's Open that got its first visit from a sitting president.

Fresh from a Bastille Day celebration in Paris, President Donald Trump pulled into his Trump National Golf Club around 3:40 p.m. Friday in Bedminster, N.J.

Feng opened with a 6-under 66 and had a one-shot lead when the round was over. The 27-year-old from China was still a shot in front after playing her first nine in the second round in 1 under.

Jeongeun6 Lee of South Korea shot her second straight 69 and was second at 6 under. Lee uses a six after her first name because there are six other South Korean players with the same name.

Amy Yang, who was one shot back after the first round, was at 5 under with 10 holes to play.

Earlier in the day, former winner Michelle Wie withdrew because of a neck injury. She shot a 73 Thursday and stopped on her second hole the next day.

Patrick Rodgers shot a 7-under 64 on Friday to take a two-shot lead after the second round of the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Ill.

Rodgers had eight birdies and a bogey to finish at 13-under 129 at TPC Deere Run. Finishing on the front nine, he had five birdies in a seven-hole stretch before closing with a bogey on the par-4 ninth. …
