Uribe and Michaels Survive the Cut at the U.S. Women's Open

June 27, 2008

UCLA's Maria Jose Uribe and Sydnee Michaels each survived the cut Friday at the 63rd U.S. Women's Open in Edina, Minn.

Both players were within six shots of the leader after 36 holes on the par 73 Interlachen Country Club.

Uribe, who posted a second round score of 74 (+1), hit 79% of her fairways and 83% of her greens -- both improved totals from her first round. But she made half as many birdies as a result of taking six more putts. She was tied for ninth place at 143 (-3), three shots behind the leader.

Michaels posted a second round score of 76 (+3), despite matching her first round birdie total of five. She began the day by going four-over through the first three holes before dropping birdies on the final three holes of her outward nine. At 149 (+3), she was tied for 36th place.

Former Bruins to make the cut were LPGA veteran Giulia Sergas, who was tied for 36th at 147 (+1) after carding a 74 (+1) and Jane Park, who was tied for 55th at 149 (+3) after signing for a 71 (-2). The projected cut was 150 (+4) with several players still on the course.

One of those was Gina Umeck, who was five-over par with five holes to play before being called off at the 13th. Charlotte Mayorkas was 11-over par at the 16th before leaving the course. Vanessa Brocket finished 156th at 21-over par.

Third round action continues on Saturday.
