BEDMINSTER, N.J. (AP) Shanshan Feng of China has the lead after the first round of the weather-delayed U.S. Women's Open.

Feng had to wait more than 20 hours after shooting a 6-under 66 to claim the top spot Friday after the opening round at a quiet Trump National Golf Club.

Michelle Wie withdrew because of a neck injury after shooting a 73 Thursday. She stopped on her second hole the next day.

Afternoon rain and lightning forced play to be halted for more than two hours Thursday in the biggest event in women's golf. Play was stopped because of darkness with 39 players on the course.

Carlata Ciganda of Spain was at 4 under and playing a par-5 for her last hole when the horn sounded. She made bogey, leaving Amy Yang in second place, a shot behind Feng.
