Danielson Improves During Second Round, Still Misses Cut at U.S. Women's Open

July 15, 2017

  BEDMINSTER, N.J. – Improving from her opening round, Casey Danielson posted a 1-over par during Friday’s second round at the 2017 U.S. Women’s Open, but still missed the cut to play the weekend by three shots at Trump National Golf Club.

The Osceola, Wis., native opened the championship by shooting 4-over par 76 Thursday, but got off to a good start Friday by carding two birdies over her first two holes before taking bogey at the fourth.

Danielson drew even for the day with a bogey at the eighth, but turned at 3-over for the championship after a birdie to close out the front nine.

A recent Stanford University graduate, Danielson birdied the par-4 12th to get to 2-under for the day, but finished her round with a 73 following three bogeys over the final six holes to miss the cut at 149.

China’s Shanshan Feng carries the 36-hole lead to Saturday’s third round after posting scores of 66 and 70, respectively.
