Feng holed six birdies at Trump National Golf Club, where inclement weather led to play being suspended for two hours during the afternoon.
Trump National was named as the site for the 2017 U.S. Women's Open in 2012, long before the golf-loving real estate magnate and reality TV star officially entered politics.
There were no demonstrators.
South Korean Yang, who has finished top four in all but one of the last five championships, was one back in second place after a five-under 67. Carlota Ciganda also was 4 under with a hole left.
Then, she shared her love affair for American food.
But Lewis, who is six shots back at 2-under, said all the excitement wasn't that big of a deal.
"I just did really well for the first two rounds, and I think that I should just keep doing the same thing for the weekend", Feng said. She also walked the front nine on Monday - without clubs - and took a look at the back nine on Wednesday, with just her wedges and putter in tow. "Dump Trump." Far Hills resident Dolly von Hollen says she understands their objections to the tournament, especially after watching Trump frankly appraise the physical appearance of France's first lady. She didn't practice all last week, either. Instead, she was dropping the ball in the fairway and playing from there. Feng was paired with Lydia Ko and Inbee Park in a group that featured the three medalists from the 2016 Olympics; Park took the gold medal, Ko the silver, and Feng the bronze.
Two-time major victor Brittany Lincicome told the Chicago Tribune last month she hoped Trump wouldn't make an appearance at the U.S. Open.
Another hat-trick of birdies came at the 17, 18 and first before eight consecutive pars completed a bogey-free round. "I didn't really get distracted".
"Now that's my kind of tournament!", I said to myself, echoing the sentiments of many other golf fans who are sick of the nonsense that the 2016 Presidential Election spawned. "I'm nervous ... because I'm not sure if I could finish well in the last two days".
"We go to four or five LPGA tournaments a year", Wladkowski said. He made his only bogey on the par-4 10th hole but rebounded with birdies on 14, 15 and 16. Among those eliminated were KPMG Women's PGA champion Danielle Kang (147), former Women's Open champion Paula Creamer (150), two-time Open victor Inbee Park (151), and Ariya Jutanugarn (151), the world's No. 2-ranked player.
