She was referring to the triple bogey her playing partner Stacy Lewis carded on the hole.

Pars are good at a major and tap-in pars are great.

"It was a little crazy", said Alex, who was the top U.S. player after the second round. "I can't complain at all". "I'm not going to talk politics, I can tell you that".

It's a years-long pattern that is practically repeated every year.

Bryson DeChambeau was second after a 65. Amateur Rachel Heck, the 15-year-old from Memphis, Tennessee, who is the youngest player in the field, also was at 3 under with five holes to play. "People are really happy with record high stock market - up over 17% since election!" She is seven shots behind the second-round leader, Shanshan Feng of China.

Yang and Choi had earlier drawn level with Feng, Yang sank a 20-foot at the 17th hole, while amateur Choi birdied the par-three 16th.

Trump has denied the assault accusations, and he gave a defiant apology for the remarks he made in the recording after it became public last year. Yang's easy-to-watch swing has produced three top-3 finishes in the event since 2012 and five top-5 finishes since 2010.

The involvement President Trump would have in his business ventures, particularly those involving foreign partners, has been the subject of controversy since before his surprise victory in November. It's unknown whether he plans to mingle outside.

"I was trying so hard to make putts", Feng said to BBC Sport. I think since he's only been in office since January, he's still new.

Many on Twitter have responded to Trump's message by criticizing him.

That might be because, according to USA Today, Trump reportedly threatened to sue the USGA if it moved the tournament.

Feng was the star on the course for the second straight day. 13 through 17, she took a 10 on the par-5 18th hole to finish with a 76 and is 2-over and out of contention entering Sunday's final round.

Should she triumph on Sunday, Feng would become the first Chinese player to win this championship. He asked the USGA to move the tournament to another New Jersey course. And this being the U.S. Women's Open, where danger lurks everywhere, that's pretty much what happened. They were all lined up, medallists at the front. She made four consecutive birdies to pull within one.

Trump's visit during the weekend tournament also poses a security challenge because his residence is on the course, where fans and players pass by throughout the day.

Lowry weighs 225 pounds, de Jonge, 230 and Stadler, 243.

Feng rolled in a short birdie putt on the final hole Saturday to take a one-shot lead after three rounds of the biggest tournament in women's golf.

And she wore a cow-print shirt during her first-round 66.

"I went back on the range, it was raining, felt OK", Wie told NJ.com of her pre-round routine on Thursday. A total of 55 competitors hail from the United States and 29 from South Korea.

CRISTIE KERR: No. Just, you know, obviously I know him fairly well.

"I think I've been prepared coming into this week". I love steak, maybe Buffalo wings. She, too, started well, birdieing the first and fourth holes to get to 2-under.
