SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. — Bowling Green High School graduate Caroline Powers shot an 8-over-par 80 Friday and was unlikely to make the cut at the U.S. Women’s Open.
Powers, who shot 73 in Thursday’s opening round, had a 36-hole total of 153.
Powers was tied for 95th place in the 156-player field when play in the second round was suspended for the day because of fog just before 7 p.m.
Only the low 60 scores and ties will advance to the final 36 holes on Saturday and Sunday at Sebonack Golf Club.
A score of 5-over was needed to make the cut when play was suspended, although the cut line could move to 6-over when the second round is finished.
Powers had a 6:45 a.m. tee time Friday and started on the 10th hole. She birdied that hole to go back to even, but had bogeys on 12, 13, 15 and 16.
She shot a 3-over 40 on the back nine and then played the front nine in 5-over-40.
In the second round, Powers hit 12-of-14 fairways, 9-of-18 greens in regulation and used 35 putts.
The Open was the third professional tournament for Powers, who recently graduated from Michigan State University.
