Pancake misses cut at US Women's Open

Posted: Updated:

KOHLER, Wisc. (WRCB) -- Brooke Pancake's second round as a pro was better than her first, but it wasn't enough to earn two more at the U.S. Women's Open.

Pancake missed the cut in her professional debut after carding a 4-over 76 in Friday's second round at Blackwolf Run. Her two-round total of +11 is five shots off the projected cut line.

The Chattanooga native and University of Alabama graduate went without a birdie for the second straight day, but still sat at 1-over through 17 holes. However, she closed her round and her week with a disapointing triple-bogey on the par-4 18th.

Suzann Petterson fired a 4-under 68 on Friday to claim sole possession of first place at -5. Michelle Wie and Christie Kerr are both a shot back.

Pancake chose one of the year's toughest events to make her pro debut. Blackwolf Run is playing as the second-longest course in U.S. Women's Open history.

Pancake, who won four state titles at Baylor School, closed out a decorated college career in May by leading the University of Alabama to its first national championship. She was recently named the SEC Female Athlete of the Year and played for the United States in the prestigious Curtis Cup in Europe last month.
