Amateur Megha Ganne tied for clubhouse lead at US Women’s Open

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – The calculation task that awaits Megha Ganne may have to wait a couple more days to finish it. The 17-year-old amateur has more pressing matters this weekend at the US Women’s Open.

Ganne followed up a strong opening round by shooting a par 71 in the second round at the Olympic Club on Friday and was tied for the clubhouse lead with Megan Khang after morning groups at 138 under par.

The New Jersey high school student aims to become the first fan to have at least a share of the 36-hole lead at the US Open since Carol Semple Thompson in 1978. She hopes that will give her some extra time. in that calculation. The assignment and a greeting on Twitter from New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy could help your cause.

“I don’t know how I’ll manage to fit that into my schedule in the next few days,” he said. “Hopefully my teacher gives me a little more time to do that. It’s hard to balance the two.”

Khang tied Ganne by birdie at par 5 on 17. England’s Mel Reid shared the first-round lead with Ganne with a 67 and started in the afternoon.

“Every day is more exciting, more stressful,” said Khang. “I like to see it as accepting it because you really can’t shy away from it. You know it’s going to happen. It’s inevitable. I love these kinds of feelings, and I definitely know for sure that the course is going to give us is the best and we’re going to have to give best of us. “

Shanshan Feng of China was one behind at 3 under after 70, with Lexi Thompson and Inbee Park at 2 under on the Lake Course. Park shot a 69 for her career record 25th below par at the US Women’s Open, breaking a tie with Beth Daniel and Betsy King.

Ganne, who needed a playoff just to qualify for her second U.S. Women’s Open, got off to a slightly slow start with her early morning start time bringing in San Francisco fog that kept the field still playing. more than usual. He started on the ninth hole and bogeyed the numbers. 12-15 before hitting the track with a nearly 20-foot birdie at par 5 16.

After a second bogey at 18, he closed strong by making a long birdie at No. 1 and then another birdie on the seventh par-4 hole that he scored with a punch. He then spent his time waiting to hit his tee shot on his last hole by repeatedly bouncing a ball off his stick, showing little sign of nervousness in front of a crowd much larger than usual as an amateur.

“That was the largest gallery we’ve seen and she was unfazed,” said her father, Hari Ganne.

Ganne’s mother, Sudha, said her daughter has always enjoyed being center stage ever since she played the role of the Queen of Hearts in an “Alice in Wonderland” play as a child.

“I love it,” Megha Ganne said. “I wish every event had a gallery looking at me because it just makes me play better, I think. And I love being in the spotlight, so it’s been a lot of fun.”

Ganne’s tee shot on his last hole passed past the green, but he managed to save par with a tricky 10-foot putt.

“It was a challenging putt,” he said. “I just wanted him to start in line. I birdied the previous hole, so I wasn’t too worried if I bogey the last one, but I’m glad he went down.”

Defending champion A Lim Kim of South Korea followed a starting 79 by shooting 70 on Friday and is in danger of missing the cut. Michelle Wie West, the 2014 champion, shot an 80 to go to 12 and will not play the weekend.

American Sarah Burnham shot a 66 for the week’s best round and was on par.
