NOTEBOOK Women’s U.S. Open



Published: Sun, July 1, 2007 @ 12:00 a.m.

Park sends 12 home: Angela Park knocked a dozen players out of the U.S. Women’s Open, and all it took was a pair of late putts. Park’s shots — a 10-footer on No. 8 and a winding 20-foot on No. 9, both for par — closed out her 69 in the second round and gave her a two-shot lead. The cut was top 60 and ties, plus anyone within 10 shots of the lead. Since only 58 players finished within 10 shots of Park’s 5-under 137, the cut was made at 6 over with 67 players. Two-time champion Juli Inkster was among those missing the cut.

Vacation’s over: Though 12-year-old Alexis Thompson was sent home early from the Open, its youngest-ever qualifier received valuable lessons. “I saw what I have to be, what my game has to be like, what has to be good in my game — my short game if you miss the green,” Thompson said. “So I’m going to work on that — I’m going to work on everything — but it was an awesome experience.” Thompson, who supplanted Morgan Pressel as the youngest golfer to play her way into the field, made it to the weekend in unorthodox fashion — when rain cut short her second round Friday, she came back Saturday morning to wrap up her final 4 1/2 holes and finish 16 over.
