FENG HOLDS SLIM LEAD IN WOMEN’S OPEN

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

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.

Rodgers keeps lead. SILVIS, ILL.» Patrick Rodgers shot a 3-un­der 68 to main­tain a two-stroke lead in the John Deere Classic.
