Brittany Lincicome, a seven-time victor on the LPGA Tour, recently told the Chicago Tribune that she hoped the president would stay away from the event so the focus will be on the golfers and not Trump.

Even at an event that purportedly celebrates the skills of women.

"I secretly want to be a Secret Service agent", Angela Stanford said after completing her round a bit before Trump got to Bedminster.

The Wayne native won the opportunity to field questions from a worldwide media Friday afternoon after climbing to 3-under-par and into the top 10 following her second round at Trump National Golf Club.

All three paused to check the commotion.

"It was my sponsor's tournament in China last week and I felt like it was my responsibility to actually go support my sponsor", Feng said.

Feng, who took a one-stroke lead into the second round, had three birdies and a bogey in a two-under 70 that gave her the clubhouse lead on eight-under par 136. She hit 23 of her first 26 fairways before tiring and missing her last two.

A local protest may be staged off the Trump National Golf Club grounds during the tournament, the group said.

It happens when the president of the United States shows up.

The US Golf Association had faced calls to move the tournament after Trump's controversial remarks about women during his presidential campaign. "Our focus remains on conducting the championship and ensuring a great experience for the players and fans this week".

Thursday's rain, along with more expected Friday, will keep the course soft and keep a lot of players in the mix. The second round will begin 15 minutes later with all tee times delayed 15 minutes. "We're all just really happy to be playing the U.S. Open". "But we're dealing with it".

"I think they forgot to tell the security, because we rolled right in here this morning", Stanford said. I had long putts and I was able to tap them in. "I knew it was going to rain and I was prepared". It's pretty incredible. I never thought that would happen. I'm not political. Him showing or not showing isn't a big deal.

You are likely to see women like Lexi Thompson and Brittany Lang in fierce competition for a $5 million tournament purse, and forget about women such as Jill Harth and Summer Zervos, just two of many who sued Trump for sexual assault.

"It's not like you have to beat 156 of the best women golfers", Inkster said. It also was suggested that if the president attended the event it would take the spotlight from the players.

That's what a president can do for crowds not used to being within a 100 yards of one.

"I was kind of excited about the prospect of it, regardless of who it is, that he came here to watch it", Stacy Lewis said. Wagner advanced to match play competition at the 2015 U.S. Women's Amateur and competed in the 2015 U.S. Women's Open at Lancaster Country Club.
