Defending champion Hinako Shibuno is set to miss the cut at the Women’s Open, finishing 12 over par after two rounds.
The Japanese 21-year-old captured the hearts of golf fans as she won at Woburn in 2019 when playing outside her home country for the first time.
But she struggled in blustery, wet conditions at Royal Troon, hitting a seven-over-par 78 in the second round.
It leaves her well outside the projected cut of six over.
England’s Bronte Law went one under for the day but also looks likely to miss the cut on eight over overall, while compatriot Charlotte Thompson is set to miss out on 10 over. (BBC)
