Women's Open weather woes: 39 fail to finish Round 1


BEDMINSTER, N.J. – Shanshan Feng’s 6-under-par 66 made her the leader in the clubhouse Thursday through the weather-suspended first round of the U.S. Women’s Open.

Feng is one shot ahead of Amy Yang and two ahead of Rolex world No. 1 So Yeon Ru and Lydia Ko, all of whom managed to finish before play was halted at 8:33 p.m. because of darkness. Carlota Ciganda is two shots back but was on the 18th hole when play was stopped.
