Yang, who was the Women's Open runner-up in 2012 and 2015, got off to a sluggish start. They have particularly mentioned that Trump has spent an extensive amount of time at his properties and golf courses during his presidency.

Korea's Amy Yang is joined by compatriots Jeongeun Lee and amateur Hye Jun Choi on six under, with Seon Woo Bae in fifth following a second-round 69.

Lydia Ko's quest for another major golf title took a hit in her second round at the US Open on Saturday morning (NZ time). The 27-year-old from China was still a shot in front after playing her first nine in the second round in 1 under.

Among the cluster of players tied for sixth at three-under par, Rachel Heck is the best story.

"This course I think isn't suited for aggressive play out there". The U.S. Women's Open continues to take place right next to the enclosure with the president.

For months, the group has called on the USGA and LPGA to sever ties with Trump, arguing that it is wildly inappropriate for one of the world's most prestigious women's golf tournaments to give millions of dollars in revenue, free advertising, and branding to Trump, who they called "a self-admitted serial sexual predator and unapologetic misogynist". I just couldn't get the line and the speed together.

Players, already dealing with two days of trying weather, received messages Thursday night to expect stricter security and possible delays because of the president's visit. "We're going to play an amazing golf course and let our clubs do the talking".

Compatriots So Yeon Ryu (71), Mirim Lee (67) and Lee Jeong-eun (73), were one shot further back at five-under par.

Angela Stanford, who was 2-under after the first two rounds, said she was informed of extra security but didn't really notice it at the course.

The last time an amateur won the U.S. Women's Open was 50 years ago, when Catherine Lacoste won wire-to-wire at the Cascades course in Virginia. Kirk is the first Australian to win on the LPGA Tour since Minjee Lee captured the Blue Bay LPGA in China last October. Instead, she shot 70 and is tied for eighth at 4 under.

"I think maybe I'll bring out my cow shorts again", Feng said smiling. She had just made four straight birdies to pull herself into contention. Padraig Harrington (79) started with a share of the lead but dropped to 2 under.

Kerr had three birdies and bogey in the first six holes and then parred out the rest of the way.

"I secretly want to be a Secret Service agent", she said after shooting 72 for two-under 142.

Kristie Kerr, her playing partner, said the moment of excitement didn't bother her. In fact, it helped avert her eyes from Lewis' implosion.

Her approach shot on the par-four hole found the rough above the hole on the sloping green and her chip sped past the hole and ran down the steep slope back into the fairway.
