Kerr & Pettersen Leads The List Of Those Who Missed Out On The USWO Cut

The cut for the U.S. Women Open was on Friday made at lows that actually ended up breaking records. At least 63 golf players were lucky enough so as to make the cut at 144. This was actually a stroke total that equaled a low mark set at the U.S. Women Open back in 1999 while at the Old Waverly located in Mississippi. On Friday the cut for the U.S. Women Open was set at 4-over at par-70.  

What emerged even shocking was the fact that top women golf players actually ended up missing out on the cut. For instance, the likes of Brittany Lincicome as well as Cristie Kerr ended up missing the cut. Also among those who missed out include Hyo Joo Kim, Yani Tseng, Catriona Matthew, Anna Nordqvist and lastly Suzann Pettersen.  

The surprises didn’t end there as the event also saw 5 of the 23 amateur golfers who were taking part in the event making the cut. Among those amateurs who actually qualified include Rockland’s Megan Khang as well as Emma Talley. Other amateurs who also ended up making the cut include China’s Muni He, Mariel Galdiano, who plays her golf in the U.S.A. as well as Hannah O’ Sullivan. 

How the organizers of the event would actually end up dealing with some of the sport’s top notch players missing out on the cut is yet to be known but experts do argue that this offers a very interesting championship that is bound to entertain many.
