(BEDMINSTER, NJ) - Shanshan Feng opened a two-shot lead Friday after two rounds 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 PM, visited his president's box next to the 14th green less than two hours later and played to the crowd, waving at the fans, giving them thumbs-up and pumping his fist. Feng was the star on the course for the second straight day. The 27 year old Chinese player shot a 2 under 70 and had a 36 hole total of 8 under 136 on the 6,732-yard course that played even longer because of rain the past two days. Amy Yang of South Korea continued her good play in the Women's Open and remained in second place, though her deficit grew to two shots after a 71. Yang has four top-five finishes in this event the past five years. Jeongeun6 Lee, who has a win and 10 top-10 finishes on the KLPGA Tour, shared second after posting a second straight 69. Hye-Jin Choice, a 17 year old from South Korea who is the world's second-ranked amateur, was also at 6 under after a second straight 69. She was tied with Feng at 8 under after 15 holes but bogeyed two of her next three holes to fall back. Earlier in the day, 2014 winner Michelle Wie withdrew because of a neck injury. She shot a 73 on Thursday and stopped on her second hole the next day.
