Trump Becomes First Sitting POTUS to Attend US Women's Open

Only three sitting presidents have attended USGA events with Warren G. Harding (1921) and Bill Clinton (1997) going to the US Open. "When she was making birdies, I tried to feed off that. I didn't really get distracted".

She said that the Kumho Tire Ladies Open in Shandong had proved to be a good warm-up for her - the course was narrow and forced her to hit the ball straight.

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

"I seem to struggle when I've gone to Atlantic City [for the annual Shoprite Classic] to play, " she said.

While the president waved at, pointed to, and fist-pumped his supporters as he took his place in his glass-enclosed viewing area beside the 15th green and 16th tee, the golfers trying to win the most prestigious event on the women's schedule gamely played on in the second round, though they were clearly the supporting cast to Trump's theatrics.

"If the President of the United States decides to attend the US Women's Open Championship, we welcome him", the governing body said in a statement.

Yet she said she has had a hard time doing that.

He is headed to the U.S. Women's Open and expects to arrive sometime Friday afternoon. Having a chance to do it in her backyard is possible after Alex put herself in position to make a legitimate run at hoisting the hardware come Sunday evening. "But they're human and a lot of times they see people they know, or they see a crowd".

Three of the best-known players in women's golf were right in front of them, but spectators were turned in the opposite direction Friday to catch a glimpse of President Donald Trump. "It's kind of a historic and cool moment to have our president here".

Nobody was saying what Trump's plan is (he is staying at his residence on the property Friday and Saturday), so that remains a wild card for the weekend.

Rio Games silver medalist Ko played in a group with Feng and gold medalist Park In-bee (77) in an Olympic podium threesome and bogeyed the last after hitting a wedge from the fringe rather than putting through the frog's hair.

She birdied the par-5 18th and par-5 first holes for back-to-back birdies from three and 20 feet respectively. "I've been there several times where I have been chasing near the leads".

She chipped up on the par-3 fourth and made a 10-footer and lagged up from off the green to four feet on the fifth.

Elsewhere for Japan in the U.S. Women's Open, one of five major championships on the U.S. LPGA Tour, Sakura Yokomine and Ai Suzuki shot 74s, Haruka Morita shot a 75 and Ayaka Watanabe 76. 11 and 12 followed by pars the rest of the way for her 70. She missed the green left on nine and lipped out her chip.

Trump's visit during the weekend tournament poses a security challenge because his residence is on the course, where fans and players pass by throughout the day.
