BEDMINSTER, N.J. — Shanshan Feng shot a bogey-free 6-under 66 and held a one-shot lead Thursday over Amy Yang when the first round of the U.S. Women’s Open at a quiet Trump National Golf Club was suspended by darkness.

Despite complaints over playing the biggest event in women’s golf on a course owned by President Donald Trump, there were no apparent protests over his comments about women. The road outside the club was relatively traffic-free and those in attendance were there for golf.

The only problem was the weather. Lightning delayed play for 2 hours, 5 minutes late in the afternoon and 30 players were still on the course when the horn sounded to stop play for the day at 8:33 p.m. Play was scheduled to resume at 7 a.m. Friday.

Lydia Ko played in the same threesome with Feng and finished at 68 with top-ranked So Yeon Ryu, the only two-time winner this year on the LPGA Tour. Carlota Ciganda also was 4 under with a hole left.

Feng started her round on the 10th hole and played the back side in 5 under, rolling in five birdies. She added another at No. 1 and then parred her last eight holes. She won the major LPGA Championship in 2012 for the first of her seven LPGA Tour titles.

PGA: Charles Howell III and Ollie Schniederjans each shot 8-under 63 in perfect morning conditions to share the first-round lead in the John Deere Classic at Silvis, Illinois.

Howell birdied seven his first nine holes and added a birdie on No. 7. Howell, a two-time PGA Tour winner, lost a playoff to Kyle Stanley two weeks ago in the Quicken Loans National.

Schniederjans birdied five of his last eight holes in his lowest round on the PGA Tour. He earned a PGA Tour card last year through the Web.com Tour.

CHAMPIONS: Larry Mize birdied half the holes and shot an 8-under 64 for a one-stroke lead after the opening round of the Senior Players Championship at Owings Mills, Maryland.

Seeking his second win on the Tour, the 58-year-old Mize was 5 under after the front nine. He made his only bogey on the par-4 10th hole but rebounded with birdies on 14, 15 and 16.

Bernhard Langer, Corey Pavin and Steve Flesch were one shot back.

EUROPEAN: Rickie Fowler picked up where he left off in 2015 at the warmup event for the British Open, avoiding trouble and rolling in five birdies to shoot a 5-under 67 in the first round of the Scottish Open at Irvine, Scotland. He was in a six-way tie for second place, two shots behind Mikko Ilonen.

Fowler, who won the Scottish Open when it was held at Gullane, missed the 2016 tournament because of scheduling conflicts arising from the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, which clogged up the golfing calendar last summer.
