Canadian Brooke Henderson withdraws from US Women's Open

"So it's just hard to guess and it swirls a lot within the trees so it's just really difficult clubbing".

Dao played nine holes with Henderson on Wednesday afternoon. "I played the back nine, so it was tough for me today, because I didn't see the front". "I played it yesterday and it was pretty wet in some spots and some of the fairways are a little bare in some spots". I think it will be a little unfair if they don't, but, you never know.

Jutanugarn is coming off a Kingsmill Championship win and kept up the momentum, including an eagle on No. 6.

The sun shone brightly at rain-soaked Shoal Creek.

Some players handled the wet course better than others, and Kang said she wasn't anxious about how her ball was sitting after her brother forced her to learn how to play "mud balls" while competing against each other as a teenager. She had a 29-hole bogey-free streak end with a three-putt on No. 8 - she started on the 10th tee - a rare mistake for her at the midway point. "And I honestly think that's one of best things we could have done".

Ariya is not looking too far ahead however.

"At Kingsmill, I started (saying) I'm not going to think about the outcome", the eight-time LPGA Tour victor said.

"I wanted to go to college", said Tavatanakit, 18, who has just completed her first year at UCLA.

The 33-year-old took advantage of benign early conditions to pick up five birdies on her outward half on a rain-softened Shoal Creek course and surge clear of the field. Lee, who carries the number "6" alongside her name to distinguish her from five other Korean golfers who share the same name, had five birdies without a bogey.

Michelle Wie - the 2014 champion - posted a 69 to be two shots behind along with Linn Grant and Danielle Kang.

The fourth-ranked South Korean is tied for 96th at 4-over after finishing an inconsistent round that included four birdies, four bogies and a pair of double-bogeys.

It has been less than 15 years since the first Thai players arrived on the LPGA Tour, while Pornanong Phatlum, at 28, is the elder stateswoman, the first from the country to establish herself long-term on the circuit.

Ko was impressed with the way the golf course had handled the tropical storm in the preceding days. "The greens staff, they've been working day and night trying to get this golf course ready and have done an fantastic job".

Top-ranked Inbee Park shot 70.

Former Women's British Open champion Jutanugarn has already posted nine top-10 finishes this season, including a win at the Kingsmill Championship in mid-May, and she now leads the Race to CME Globe standings from her elder sister Moriya.

"I know they hate to do it, but for pace of play more than anything, just play it "up" and keep it moving", American Stacy Lewis said. The course, as well as it has drained and it's remarkable given the amount of rain, is still going to administer bad lies and mud balls.
