Three Amateurs make cut at Women's British Open
WOBURN, England (July 29, 2016) -- With the Women's British Amateur halfway home at Woburn Golf and Country Club, three amateurs have made it through to the weekend. The group includes Bronte Law, Leona Maguire and Maria Parra.
Law is presently the low amateur as she sits at 4-under and tied for 15th. The UCLA senior has put together back-to-back 2-under 70's thus far. On Friday Law birdied five holes and bogeyed three. Most of her work was done on the front nine when she birdied four holes.
Law, who won three-times this year with UCLA, has been using borrowed clubs this week after her sticks got lost somewhere between Women's British Open qualifying and Woburn Golf and Country Club.
Leona Maguire has put together a pair of under-par rounds so far, with tallies of 71-70 to sit at 3-under and she is tied for 25th. Maguire, a junior at Duke and the 2014-2015 National Player of the Year birdied four holes and bogeyed two on Friday. From Nos. 4-6 she rolled in three consecutive birds.
The final amateur playing the weekend at Woburn Golf and Country Club is Maria Parra, who has gone 69-74 so far. Parra, 1-under and tied for 47th, struggled a bit in the second round with a double-bogey, three bogeys and only two birdies. Her first round scorecard however was more than impressive as Parra rolled in an eagle on the par-5 7th, three birdies and just two bogeys.
The lead is currently being held by Mirim Lee at 11-under.
