Player shows up late for U.S. Women's Open tee time, takes two-stroke penalty on first hole


HOUSTON — We’ve all had that feeling in the pit of our stomachs when we check the clock, do some rudimentary math and try to calculate if we’ll make it for a tee time.

Imagine if that tee time happened to be at the U.S. Women’s Open.

In keeping with 2020, the first story line of this week’s tournament at Champions Golf Club was of Jing Yan rushing to the first tee at the Cypress Creek course, a moment captured on the Peacock livestream. She failed to make it by 9:42 a.m. start time.

In accordance with the rules, Yan was given a two-stroke penalty. She walked to the tee, drilled a drive and made what would have been a birdie putt. Instead, her card listed a bogey 5.

Yan, who played at the University of Washington, now lives in the Dallas area. Players went off two different courses on Thursday morning as well as going off the first and 10th tees on each course.

Yan made the cut at last week’s Volunteers of America Classic in Dallas but she missed the cut in five of her previous six starts.
