Three sitting presidents have attended a men's U.S. Open: Warren Harding, Gerald Ford and Bill Clinton.
China's Feng Shanshan shook off persistent rain and the commotion of a presidential visit on Friday to fire a two-under par 70 and stretch her US Women's Open lead to two strokes.
Acknowledging the crowds, the president waved, pointed and gave a thumbs-up, prompting squeals from a group of schoolgirls.
Trump, surrounded by Secret Service agents, made his arrival to watch while Feng was on the 15th hole, which runs near the clubhouse.
Rio Games silver medallist Ko played in a group with Feng and gold medallist Park In Bee (77) in an Olympic podium threesome and bogeyed the last after hitting a wedge from the fringe rather than putting through the frog's hair.
All three paused to check the commotion. I just couldn't swing.
Shanshan Feng was in a good mood following her first round at the U.S. Women's Open on Thursday - and understandably so. "Hopefully I can make that up quickly over the next two days and put myself in contention on Sunday". "I'm kind of used to it".
"It's really incredible that the president of the United States is here to watch us play golf and on a tremendous golf course", said Henderson.
Trump is the first sitting president to attend a U.S. Women's Open, per GolfWeek. "Our focus remains on conducting the championship and ensuring a great experience for the players and fans this week". The first round Thursday was delayed for more than two hours by severe weather and 39 players had to return early Friday morning to finish. "We attacked maybe a little bit more". "But we're dealing with it". Americans Angela Stanford and Nelly Korda posted 2-under 142 totals.
"I think they forgot to tell the security, because we rolled right in here this morning", Stanford said. And I honestly - I called the rule official over and I was ready to pull out. I'm not going to comment on my own personal views, but I will say this: I don't care who is president of the United States. "Probably have a big target on me now". She occasionally plays golf with President Trump. Wie, 27, won her only major title at the 2014 US Women's Open at Pinehurst.
The president plans to spend this weekend at his Bedminster Club, grabbing a major chunk of media attention to the possible chagrin of at least one player. "I will be nervous and excited on the first tee tomorrow". "But they're human and a lot of times they see people they know, or they see a crowd".
