Six amateurs, led by Patricia Ehrhart of Birmingham, Ala., made the cut on Friday at the U.S. Senior Women's Open being held at NCR Club in Kettering, Ohio.

Ehrhart finds herself tied for 13th place at 3-over 149 following rounds of 74-75 at NCR Club.

This isn't the first time Ehrhart has made a strong showing on the big stage. In the inaugural U.S. Senior Women's Open in 2018 at Chicago Golf Club, Ehrhart was tied for 10th place through two rounds before ultimately finishing tied for 23rd.

A reinstated amateur, Ehrhart's most notable accomplishments since she became an amateur include two semifinal finishes, in the 2016 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur and the 2017 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur.

Three-time U.S. Senior Women's Amateur champion Lara Tennant is also on to the weekend after rounds of 75-76 left the Portland, Ore. native tied for 21st.

Other amateurs who will join Ehrhart and Tennant over the weekend include 2017 U.S. Senior Women's Amateur champion Judith Kyrinis (t-29th; 153), seven-time USGA champion Ellen Port (t-34th; 155), Lisa McGill (t-40th; 156) and current U.S. Senior Women's Amateur champion Shelly Stouffer (t-46th; 158), who came in on the cutline at 12-over.

Helen Alfredsson, the 2019 champion, is leading the way at 6-under-par 140, followed by Leta Lindley, who is one stroke back at 141 and defending champion Annika Sorenstam, in solo third place at 143.
