On the LPGA Tour Lauren has to have a great round tomorrow to make the Cut . . . She is 4 Over Par after her firstRound . . . 12 shots behind the Leaderand 4 shots beh8bd the current Projected Cut
On the PHA 5our Kyle shot +3 today . . . He’s 11 shots off the Lead and currently 5 shots behind the Projected Cut Ben shot -1 . . . 7 shots off the Lead, but only 1 shot off tge Projected Cut Carson shot -2 . . . and sits squarely on the Projected Cut
Ben and Carson bot missed several makable birdie putts . . . I look for both of their scores to improve tomorrow . . .
On the Epson Tour Ana Paula was sitting @ +6 with 5 holes to play and managed to birdie 3 of those holes to shoot +3 in her Open8ng Round of the Epson Championship Tournament . . . She is 10 shots off tge Lead and 5 shots off tge current Projected Cut
Carson... Had it to-3 with nice bird on 15. I was thinking, ok 38th is good position if he pars in. But he had the 16th par 5 and good shot to birdie and shoot -4 which puts him in top 20 and great round. Then he bogeys 16 - ouch. Still as Skeeta56 said, he had makable putts all day.
Hopefully good rounds by all today but I think it'll take -3 minimum to make cut. Kyle putted horrible yesterday. He can figure it out but still may not be enough.
These are their misses yesterday (from inside 20’) . . . 7 chances for Carson and 9 for Ben . . .
Look . . . I realize you can’t make them all . . . I’m just saying, they put themselves in great positions to score and that both are good putters . . . You can put the appropriate number of balls anywhere on any green, these distances from the hole and I’ll bet you $10 to a donut each player will make at least one!!!
If their iron accuracy matches yesterday’s . . . I expect each to score better . . . and I bet they expect the same!!!
And look what Carson did. The bogey on the first hole being in ideal position off the tee. Awe, frustrating. Then didn't birdie the two holes playing the easiest. Thought for sure he would birdie 9 (18) after having 240 for his approach from a nice spot in the fairway... Then hits it 25 yards short and at that short sided himself. He had to know he needed birdie for the cut. Understanding the cut as I post is -3 but 20 players just starting and only 2 have to make it to -4. Darn it Carson, you worked too hard to get your card, need to make the most of that opportunity.
Ben still has a good shot at it but he too needs to start the birdie train rolling.
