Aditi Ashok misses cut at Dana Open on LPGA Sylvania


India’s Aditi Ashok had another disappointing day as she withdrew from the Dana Open after carding a two-for-73 in the second round here.

Aditi, who shot five times on day one, needed a low score on day two but again found the situation difficult and came out early with a total of seven times.

The cup fell to a penny. Aditi, who is currently 89th on the Race to CME Globe, the LPGA Order of Merit, missed his fifth cut in the last six LPGA starts. Two-time Epson Tour winner Lucy Li took the lead after a sensational seven under 64, which equaled a career low she first set earlier this season. Li took first place at the Dana Open with a score of less than 10 overall and leads the field by two. Li needed 25 putts to get around at Highland Meadows Golf Club. Li worked her way through the field this week with a tied ninth-place finish at the CP Women’s Open and is the only one in the field to be bogey-free over 36 holes. The 19-year-old, who clinched her 2023 LPGA Tour card via the Epson Tour with her Carolina Golf Classic and Twin Bridges Championship victories along with four other top 10s, could become an LPGA member immediately with a victory on Sunday. .

2022 Tour rookie Ruoning Yin and two-time LPGA Tour winner Carlota Ciganda are chasing her under 8 and tied for second. Both shot 2-under 69s. Yin’s two-day total of 134 surpassed his previous 36-hole record by six strokes. Ciganda’s only bogey of the event came on the No. 5, but his third birdie of the day on the No. 9 helped level the above-par hole.

Five players are tied for fourth under 7, including defending champion Nasa Hataoka, who netted a five under 66 in the second round. Grand champion Hannah Green is one of seven players tied for ninth.
