FENG HOLDS SLIM LEAD IN WOMEN’S OPEN
BEDMINSTER, N.J.» Frontrunning Shanshan Feng rolled in a short birdie putt on the final hole Saturday to take the third-round lead in the U.S. Women’s Open.
Teenager Hye-jin Choi and Amy Yang were a stroke back heading into the final round of the biggest event in women’s golf — and one that had an even bigger stage with President Donald Trump in attendance for the second straight day.
Feng, from China, shot a 1-under-par 71 to reach 9-under 207 at the president’s Trump National Golf Club. Choi and Yang each shot a 70.
All three players are going to have Trump watching over them and probably a lot of South Korea, too, with the top six players chasing Feng all from that country.
