Oxbow's Amy Anderson is no longer leading the US Women's Open. 2nd place will have to do tonight.

Anderson has been the talk of the tournament thus far. She went to sleep with the lead last night, and said she actually got a good night's rest, about 7 hours or so.

The 18 year old was back on course today to finish up her first round. After bogeying the 15th hole, Anderson bounced back on 17, sticking her approach in nice and tight She'd then make the birdie putt to move back in the lead at 2-under par. She finished round one at 2-under, 69, and held the lead.

She's now in 2nd, 2 shots back of Stacy Lewis, who's begun her 2nd round. Anderson won't start hers until tomorrow. And Amy feels winning the US Junior Amateur 2 years ago has been big this week.
