(BEDMINSTER, NJ) - Shanshan Feng had her best round in the U.S. Women's Open, and has the first-round lead. Afternoon rain and lightning forced officials to suspend play for more than two hours Thursday in the biggest event in women's golf, and play was stopped because of darkness with 39 players still on the course. They will return early Friday to complete the round at Trump National Golf Course. Despite the weather, the golf was excellent and Feng was outstanding, shooting a 6 under 66 in a tournament in which she has rarely played well in her 10 seasons as a professional in the United States. It marked the first time the 27-year-old from China broke 70 in 42 Open rounds. Amy Yang of South Korea, who has had two seconds, a third and a fourth in this event in the past five years, was a shot behind. Lydia Ko of New Zealand played in the same threesome with Feng and was tied for third at 68 with top-ranked So Yeon Ryu of South Korea. Carlota Ciganda also was 4 under with a hole left. She would have to eagle the par-5 18th to get a share of the lead. Former Open winner Cristie Kerr, who played with back spasms, and Megan Khang were the best U.S. finishers at 69. Feng, who has never finished better than fourth in the Open (2012), started her round on the 10th hole and played the back side in 5 under, rolling in five birdies. She added another at No. 1 and then parred her last eight holes.
