Rough start for Aditi at US Open
Indian golfer Aditi Ashok had a rough start to the Women’s US Open as she was two-over through 17 holes in a weather-hit first round here.

It was not a roller-coaster, but just that a lot of putts did not fall and she had three bogeys and one birdie on 17th, just as darkness stopped play. In the morning, Shanshan Feng and Amy Yang managed to get a hang of the proceedings.

Feng enjoyed the pairing of the three Olympic medal winners. Shanshan, who won the bronze in Rio last year, played with gold medalist Inbee Park and Ko, who captured the silver.

Chinese Feng played the back nine first and went out in 31 then wilted a bit in the heat, finishing the morning wave with a six-under-par, 66. Yang, who has 16 top-10 finishes in majors without ever winning, is one stroke back at 67.

Lydia Ko and So Yeon Ryu are at 68.
